Green Tea Helps Protect Prostate Health

Some days it seems like the proven benefits of green tea just keep multiplying. At the University of Parma in Italy, doctors have found that green tea compounds known as polyphenols can cut the risk of developing prostate cancer by as much as 27 percent over the course of a year. According to the study, the amount of polyphenols necessary to produce this cancer-fighting effect – roughly 600 milligrams daily – suggest that green tea supplementation may be more efficient than simple consumption of the hot beverage. Although Western science has only clued in to the benefits of green tea relatively recently, the substance is much more common internationally. Green tea has been a popular home remedy in China for centuries, and the traditional Mediterranean diet is rich in antioxidant polyphenols from vegetables as well as green tea.
