Green Tea

Green tea comes from the same shrub as black tea, but the leaves are processed differently, allowing them to retain their green color.

The health-promoting compounds in green tea are called polyphenols, of which epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is the most potent.
EGCG has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve some of the flare-ups associated with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.

Green tea also seems to reduce inflammation-driven conditions like heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and even certain cancers.

To brew green tea, steep a tea bag or loose tea leaves in a tea infuser for five minutes.

While green tea is safe to consume for most people, it contains caffeine, which may negatively impact sleep in some people. Plus, drinking large amounts of this beverage may inhibit iron absorption.

In addition, compounds in green tea can interact with certain medications, including acetaminophen, codeine, verapamil, nadolol, tamoxifen, and bortezomib, so check with your healthcare provider — especially if you drink a lot of it.
