All teas – green, black or oolong – come from the same plant, Camellia sinensis, and are rich in polyphenols. According to John Weisburger PhD, senior researcher at the Institute for Cancer Prevention in Valhalla, NY, these polyphenols are a type of antioxidant that seeks out cell-damaging free radicals in our bodies and renders them harmless. This is often referred to as “detoxification.” Dr. Weisburger says, “In my lab, we found that green and black tea had identical amounts of polyphenols.” Weisburger’s researchers also concluded that both green and black teas have about 8 to 10 times the polyphenols found in fruits and vegetables. There are many additional studies that attribute health benefits to the antioxidants found in tea. Because Milo’s Tea is fresh brewed, it has even higher antioxidant levels than most.
