Green Tea is rich in healthy bio-active compounds, one being polyphenols that do have certain health benefits like reducing inflammation and helping fight cancer.

It contains Catechin which is a natural antioxidant and helps prevent cell damage and some other health benefits too. It is the single most important of the compounds that provide Green Tea with its highly effective medicinal properties.

It is found that it may improve brain function by boosting it and keeping you alert. The key active ingredient, caffeine, is a well-known stimulant. Though it has a lower percentage of caffeine than coffee it has been repeatedly shown by research that the caffeine present can improve the functioning of the brain, elevating your mood, alertness, memory and reaction time. L-theanine present in Green Tea alongside caffeine can have a synergistic effect, the two combine well to improve your brain function.
