Green tea has polyphenols which fight against hosts of diseases. These are naturally occuring chemical compounds also found in certain fruits and vegetables that act as powerful antioxidants. Catechins, a subgroup of polyphenols,are particularly powerful disease fighters and potent antioxidants that have a long list of beneficial effects.

Where else can you find catechins? You can find them in wine, ginkgo biloba leaves and pine bark. However, catechins are present in large quantitities in fresh green tea leaves.
