BY Jenna Duncan

SEATTLE According to researchers, not only is green tea an excellent source of antioxidants, it can also help with things like maintaining cholesterol, burning fat and calming nerves, researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, as well as researched at the University of Seattle have said.

Green tea contains a mild dose of caffeine which can stimulate the brain. It also contains thiamine, or vitamin B, which can benefit regular drinkers by improving cognitive functions and giving the drinker more energy, reports said.  

Research also indicated that women who rink green tea regularly had a 54 percent decreased risk of ovarian cancer. Hutch Center scientists said that green tea contains high levels of EGCG, or epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which not only has been shown to help prevent ovarian cancer, but other forms such as breast cancer and colorectal cancer, as well.
