Well since my list on green tea is getting so huge that I have added to for over a year, I thought I would share it.

Drinking regular cups of tea could help improve your memory, research suggests.

Research aimed at finding the active compounds in green tea revealed that its protective effects are due chiefly to catechins. Powerful polyphenolic antioxidants, catechins are astringent, water-soluble compounds that can be easily oxidized. They are a subgroup of flavonoids, weak phytoestrogenic compounds widely available in vegetables, fruit, tea, coffee, chocolate and wine. The antioxidant potential of both green and black teas, as measured by the Phenol Antioxidant Index, was found to be significantly higher than that of grape juice and red wines.

Inhibitors of 5AR may be effective in the treatment of 5 alpha dihydrotestosterone-dependent abnormalities, such as benign prostate hyperplasia, prostate cancer, and certain skin diseases. The green tea catechins are potent inhibitors of type 1 but not type 2 5AR; they also inhibit accessory sex gland growth in the rat. These results suggest the certain tea gallates can regulate androgen action in target organs. (Liao S, Hipakka, RA. Selective inhibition of steroid 5a -reductase [5AR] by tea epicatechin-3-gallate and epigallocatechin-3-gallate. Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications; 214(3), 833-838,1995).
