Green Tea - Shown Protection against Colorectal Cancer
People who consume larger amounts of green tea or supplements have lower rates of cancer than those who don’t have green tea.
Green Tea Extract is simply green tea leaves prepared as a supplement. Practically speaking, there's no difference between ingesting green tea extract and drinking green tea.
There are many types of polyphenols, and the green tea plant is particularly rich in one called catechin.
In a study published in 2017 it showed the finds of a very large study which included 29 separate epidemiological studies with more than one and a half million participants. They discovered two very important facts:
1. Green tea is associated with protection against colorectal cancers by an average of a 7% reduction.
2. It showed that females had a 32% reduced risk of cancer who took the equivalent of one cup of green tea per day. The study found the more they took the more protection they had. One cup of tea contains about 50 milligrams of caffeine and 80 to 100 milligrams of polyphenol content, depending on the strength of the tea and the size of cup. In capsules, green tea extract can range from 10 to 750 milligrams per pill.
Green tea extracts also appear to help overcome the impact of poor dietary habits which promote colorectal cancer.
Drinking three to five cups of green tea per day seems to be optimal to reap the most health benefits. Very high doses may be problematic for some, but generally, green tea's benefits far outweigh its risks.
