What is the minimum amount of Green Tea I should consume daily to get optimum health benefits? Can I ever take too much Green Tea?
Asian people drink green tea in large quantities, up to a dozen cups, which may contain hundreds of milligrams of green tea catechins (polyphenols). EGCG is the most abundant green tea catechin that often takes 50% of the catechin content. But ideally the equivalent of 6-10 cups of tea is what I recommend per day. The equivalent of 90 mg of EGCG has been suggested to help in weight loss and the maximum needed is 180 mg per day of EGCG catechins.
