Tea is one of the world's most popular beverages, second only to water. The health-promoting benefits of green tea have been recognised in China for thousands of years. Although green and black tea are derived from the same plant (Camellia sinensis), there are significant differences in their preparation. Black tea is withered, rolled, fermented and dried for curing. Through this process, the bioactive polyphenols of the fresh leaf are oxidised and black tea loses its full complement of beneficial polyphenols. Green tea, on the other hand, is prepared from lightly steamed and dried leaves of the tea plant. The steaming process inactivates the enzymes responsible for oxidation leaving the polyphenol content inactive and resulting in a product with a chemical composition very similar to that of the fresh leaf. Most of the therapeutic benefits of green tea are due to the catechins, which are polyphenols with a flavonoid structure. Recent studies have demonstrated that the polyphenols in green tea, particularly the catechin component, offer potent antioxidant activity through the scavenging of free radicals. Free radicals, which are involved in the damage of cellular constituents including DNA, are often the result of exposure to dietary, occupational, and environmental toxins. Tegreen 97 provides stronger protection of free radical damage to cells and their genetic material (DNA) than the well-known antioxidants vitamins E and C, and the antioxidant compound found in red wine. Tegreen 97 is caffeine-free and should not produce the stimulant effect caused by the consumption of caffeine-containing beverages in some people.

Healthy skin is an important aspect of beauty, but sun, gravity, free radical damage and a poor diet take their toll on healthy, youthful-looking skin. The interlacing of collagen with elastin (a protein found in the body's elastic tissues) gives skin its strength, elasticity and smoothness. Frequent or prolonged sun exposure is a major contributor of premature aging and wrinkles because the sun's ultraviolet rays generate free radicals in the skin - a threat to firm, youthful skin. Free radicals attack collagen and may contribute to an older-looking face. Although sunscreen should always be used, antioxidant supplementation may offer some protective benefits to the skin from free radical damage and the effects of ultraviolet rays.

Modern research reveals many ways in which green tea is friendly to teeth. Green tea inhibits the growth of bacteria associated with the normal deposit of unwanted or unhealthy materials that may build up on the surface of teeth after eating certain foods.
