Green Tea Leaves
Green tea leaves have been used for medicine for centuries since they contain strong antioxidants. The Arthritis Foundation found that the polyphenols in green tea have anti-inflammatory properties.
University of Michigan scientists found evidence supporting claims that the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) in green tea can benefit those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. ECGC has also been found to potentially help protect cartilage and bones.
The benefits of green tea leaves can be received by brewing and drinking it. It is best to let it steep for three to five minutes.
