While there’s no definite way to fight cancer, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s diseases—and certainly, no behavioral change is going to guarantee you a disease-free life—there are still a few ways you can minimize your risk of developing these conditions.

There are many chemical compounds found in green tea that have been shown to confer significant health benefits.

A literature review published in the journal Chinese Medicine provides an overview of these health benefits.

According to the review, the health-promoting effects of green tea are mainly attributed to its polyphenol content.

Polyphenols are compounds found in plants and the two most abundant in green tea are flavonoids and flavonols.

According to the literature review, studies using animal models show that green tea flavonols, also known as catechins, provide some protection against degenerative diseases.

Studies suggest that green tea polyphenols might protect against Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases and other neurodegenerative diseases.

Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills.

What’s more, green tea consumption has also been linked to the prevention of many types of cancer, notes the review.

These include:

  • Lung
  • Colon
  • Oesophagus
  • Mouth
  • Stomach,
  • Small intestine
  • Kidney,
  • Pancreas
  • Mammary glands.

Green tea has also been shown to bolster the body’s defenses against heart disease.

Heart disease – conditions that narrow or block blood vessels – is a major killer worldwide.

According to the review, it reduces heart disease risk mainly by lowering high blood pressure.

Some animal’s studies also suggest that green tea might protect against the development of coronary heart disease by reducing blood glucose levels and body weight, notes the review.

To maximise the health benefits of drinking green tea, you should commit to a healthy lifestyle.

Eating a healthy, balanced diet is an important part of maintaining good health, and can help you feel your best.
