Green tea is a non-fermented tea that is made from Camellia sinensis leaves and buds that have not undergone the same oxidation process used to make oolong teas and black teas.
Green tea extract contains concentrated compounds of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins and flavonoids that may boost our gut biome to fight off the disease-causing microorganisms. It also promotes weight loss, blood sugar regulation and exercise recovery.
It is used as a tea and as a dietary supplement. It is also used in cosmetics as an active compound in skin care due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and antiaging activity.
