I asked this question a while back and no one seemed to know of any properties, if it worked or not....Oh well, back on the green tea then I suppose.
I have new clothes that I want to wear for our trip to London in May and have some weight to shift before I can, if green tea helps then so be it.

  • Green tea helps to reduce the incidences of colon, bladder, esophageal, pancreas, rectal and stomach cancer by up to 60%. The antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate in green tea is very effective in fighting these forms of cancers.
  • Green tea helps to lower bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the ratio of good cholesterol (HDL).
  • Green tea helps to stop the development of blood clots which lead to strokes and heart attacks.

Side Effects>


Green tea does have some side effects but most come from the caffeine. One 6 oz. cup of green tea contains approximately 30 mg. of caffeine. People who are caffeine sensitive should take green tea supplements instead of brewing their own tea.
More than 6 cups of green tea daily can cause sleeplessness, irregular heart beat, diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches, and loss of appetite.
People with heart conditions, anxiety, panic attacks, kidney disease and sensitive stomachs should be cautioned about ingesting green tea.
For people who want the benefits of green tea but don’t like the taste, green tea supplements are available. The dietary supplements normally come in 500 mg capsules which are to be taken two to three times daily.

Thats very interesting, I used to drink 10 cups of coffee a day, so switched to green tea. I feel a lot less stressed than I did when drinking all that coffee, but having read the above, will limit myself to 6 cups of green tea a day.

Excellent, thanks for that. I had no idea they came in supplement form. Now where would I get these from, a health food shop I suppose.
