Ocha balances testosterone.
Testosterone, a type of male hormone, is said to be a risk factor for prostate cancer. Since catechins, which are abundant in green tea, reduce testosterone, continuous consumption of green tea is thought to prevent prostate cancer. Research has also shown that epigallocatechin gallate, a substance found in green tea, stops the growth of cancer cells in the colon, stomach, and liver, prevents metastasis, and even attacks cancer cells. Another advantage of green tea is that it is inexpensive and can be consumed continuously with few side effects.
