Free radicals are known to cause notable damage to lipids and other essential fats. In addition, Green tea contains plant derived compounds that may help the body fight infection.

Green tea contains polyphenols in significant quantities, which may block cholesterol absorption according to a study noted by the University of Maryland Medical Center. Researchers have studied Green Tea and its ingredients with a view to exploring potential interactions with cancer, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
