Green tea is more than just green liquid, it’s a great tool to improve your health! Green tea is full of polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants. These antioxidants can help to reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, which in turn protects cells and molecules from damage. These free radicals are known to play a role in aging and all sorts of diseases.
