Looks at the antioxidant properties of green tea, including its usefulness in preventing cancer, cardiovascular disease, aging, and digestive problems

Blackwell North Amer
Naturally occurring chemical compounds called polyphenols - found in abundance in green tea - have been found to be among the most effective of the antioxidants. And it is this important group of phytochemicals that has been identified as contributing to the prevention of cancer and heart disease, as well as having a wide variety of other healing abilities. Here, in The Green Tea Book, is a clear guide to understanding why green tea works, and how you can use it for both good health and great taste.
The Green Tea Book begins by exploring the scientific research that supports this beverage's properties. It then focuses on green tea's long and rich history, from its centuries-old place of honor in Asian cultures to its growing use in the West. The book goes on to examine the individual benefits green tea offers - its use as an antioxidant in the prevention of cancer, heart disease, and stroke; its ability to promote longevity; its use as a digestive aid; its many benefits to women's health; and its role in fighting cavities and gingivitis. It even provides a practical section on choosing, brewing, and storing teas year-round.
