What are the benefits of decaffeinated green tea?

Green tea has become a popular beverage lately, including carbonated and fruit-flavored options as well as powdered add-ins for bottled water and green-tea supplements. If you wonder whether the product matches up to the hype, rest assured that decaffeinated green tea has many health benefits for those who drink it.

Catechins

Green tea contains catechins, which fight off diseases. According to CNN.com’s Dr. Melina Jampolis, decaffeinated green tea also contains these nutrients, though in slightly reduced numbers due to the decaffeination process.

Sleep Benefits

While decaffeinating reduces the amount of catechins in green tea, the added benefit of eliminating the caffeine is a sleep benefit. Caffeine can affect your sleep, so a decaffeinated version of green tea will not cause this problem, allowing you to rest easily.

Cholesterol

The polyphenels present in green teas reduce the formation of plaque in your arteries by preventing the oxidation of LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.

Cancer

The same nutrients that help to block cholesterol also have anticancer properties, making green tea a very healthy beverage. Decaffeinated green tea contains the catechin EGCG, which is thought to have anticancer properties.

Cardiovascular Benefits

Whfoods.com cites a Japanese study from 2006 that determined that men and women who drink green tea regularly are at a greatly reduced risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and stroke, as compared to people who do not drink green tea.
