Tea is an important source of antioxidants. The flavonoids present in green tea are very effective antioxidants in vitro and may therefore be effective antioxidants in the body. The uptake of flavonoids from tea is most efficient for the monomeric catechins found in green tea, namely, epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin-3-gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the last named being the most important.
