    WIDELY AVAILABLE on super-market shelves and at health food stores, green tea is a product you should be familiar with. The Chinese have used green tea leaf and its extract for thousands of years, preparing the tea from the steamed and dried leaves of Camellia sinensis . It contains caffeine, which stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), and some of the most potent anticarcinogenic substances found in nature. People may take it for many reasons: to prevent cancer, hyperlipidemia, atherosclerosis, dental caries, and headaches, as well as to treat wounds, skin and stomach disorders, and infectious diarrhea. It's also used as a mild diuretic, an antibacterial, and a topical astringent.

    Common trade names: Chinese Green Tea Bags, Green Tea (various manufacturers), Green Tea Extract, Green Tea Power, Green Tea Power Caffeine Free, Standardized Green Tea Extract.
