The citizens of Japan boast the longest average lifespan in the world‚ and research suggests that the cultural significance of green tea consumption is a factor in the claim. Extensive epidemiological evidence shows that people consuming high amounts of Japanese sencha green tea live longer‚ develop less cancer‚ have healthier cholesterol levels‚ suffer less cardiovascular and liver disease‚ and may be less susceptible to heart attacks. In fact‚ a cup of green tea has greater antioxidant activity than standard serving of broccoli‚ spinach‚ carrots or strawberries.
EgCG‚ or epigallocatechin gallate‚ is the largest and most of several catechins that are present in green tea. The most consistent clinical research on green tea's health enhancing effects in humans comes from drinkers of Japanese sencha‚ (the "gold standard" of green tea) which can contain 150 milligrams of EgCG per cup. The amount of green tea used in these long-term studies is 10 cups (or more) daily‚ and this closely matches the 800 to 1600 milligrams of EgCG per day that have been used in more recent trials.
Green tea contains relatively little caffeine compared to coffee - but 10 cups a day can still total 500 milligrams of the stimulant. Complete abstinence from caffeine may not be best answer either‚ because further research suggests that a moderate amount of caffeine provides a synergistic benefit for the catechins of green tea. AOR's Active Green Tea provides the equivalent of 10 cups of green tea in just 3 capsules with only a minute amount of caffeine.
