The main functional ingredient in green tea is catechins. Catechin, also known as tea tannin and catechol, is the general term for flavanols in tea. Catechin has a variety of biological effects, such as antioxidant effects, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, and reducing the risk of tumors.
Drinking green tea is wholesome. “Reference intake of dietary nutrients for Chinese residents (2013)” shows that the intake of catechins in green tea is different, and the health effects are also different:
1. The anti-oxidant effect of catechins can only be observed when 250 mg of catechins are taken from tea every day.
2. Daily intake of 400 mg of catechins can reduce cardiovascular disease risk factors such as weight, blood sugar, blood pressure, and blood lipids, thereby reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
3. Ingesting 600 mg of catechins daily can reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men. But studies have shown that drinking tea has no effect on stomach and bladder cancer.
Each cup of green tea contains about 100 mg of catechins, so drinking at least 3 cups of green tea every day will have a health effect on the body.
