With the global population at seven billion, green tea drinkers around the world number hundreds of millions, largely due to athletes and non-athletes recognizing the benefits. The powerful antioxidant activity in green tea is six times greater than in black tea and comes from the so-called polyphenols. In green tea the main polyphenols are catechins, which are present in high concentrations. They are 25 to 100 times more effective than vitamin C and E, which are also present in green tea. In addition green tea contains large amounts of vitamins K, D, B1, B2, PP, carotene, some organic acids, iodine, fluorine and minerals. For example, on averade 100 grams of dry green tea contains 2300mg of postassium, 500mg of calcium, 440mg of magnesium, 82mg of iron.
