5 Unexpected Benefits of Green Tea

Green tea isn’t one of those overrated “must-have” new health trends that don’t live up to the hype. It just may be the healthiest beverage on the planet due to its stellar antioxidant content.

Before we dive into the five unexpected health benefits of this green wonder, let’s review…

Green Tea Basics

All types of tea, except herbal tea, are brewed from the dried leaves of the Camellia sinensis bush. So, why does green tea get all the healthy accolades compared to black tea if they come from the same plant?

Well, it all comes down to how the leaves are processed. Black tea leaves are dried, while green tea leaves are lightly steamed, which helps retain healthy polyphenols and antioxidants.

Green Tea Compounds and Your Health

These do-gooder compounds offer various beneficial effects on health. So, it’s no wonder we write frequently about emerging research supporting various health claims.

In our weight-loss-obsessed culture, it’s no surprise that green tea’s metabolism-boosting and fat-burning benefits get first dibs on Google searches. There’s plenty of evidence to support these claims. Read about the 4 Weight Loss Benefits of Green Tea here.

But today, we are here to share six surprising benefits of tea. Take a look at what we found.

  1. Your Brain on Green Tea
    Your brain (like the rest of your body) thrives on antioxidants, especially the one found in green tea extract called EGCG, which has been shown to protect brain cells from oxidative stress.  Researchers have found this protection can help reduce brain damage that could lead to mental decline and brain diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and dementia.

  2. May Improve Mental Health
    According to Health.com, there’s a reason sipping on a cuppa green can be so chill. All teas are rich in an amino acid called theanine, which may relieve stress, induce relaxation, and combat anxiety. However, green tea has the highest concentration of this chemical compared to other types of tea.  What’s more, research has also found that green tea can improve memory, thanks in part, to theanine.

  3. Your Heart Loves Green Tea
    Studies show that green tea could lower some markers of heart disease, such as blood pressure or lipids. As a powerful source of antioxidants, green tea is an excellent way to help your heart function at its best. Studies suggest that green tea promotes healthy cholesterol levels and supports overall cardiovascular activity.

  4. Green Tea and Oral Health
    One meta-study has found that drinking green tea, or taking a green tea extract supplement could be linked to better oral health. Why? Green tea can protect against cavities, gum disease, and bad breath, according to one study that compiled research on the beverage’s oral health effects. The study indicated that green tea may reduce oral bacteria, which, in turn, can promote the health of teeth and gums.

  5. Your Skin Will Look Great
    As we get older, our skin gradually loses elasticity and develops wrinkles, fine lines, and other not-so-fun signs of aging to appear. The good news is that studies show that green tea extract contains polyphenols that can improve skin elasticity for anti-aging support. The benefits don’t stop there, though. Green tea is also proven to help bumps and breakouts associated with acne, while also providing UV protection to minimize oxidative stress for the skin.


Honestly, it was hard for us to pare down this list of the countless benefits of green tea. There’s plenty of evidence that green tea can also help you live longer, manage blood sugar, and can even protect you against some cancers.
