I have been drinking Green Tea w/ splenda for the past month, but only drink it once a day and it is usually in the middle of the day. Should I be drinking it more often?

"Green tea can even help prevent tooth decay! Just as its bacteria-destroying abilities can help prevent food poisoning, it can also kill the bacteria that causes dental plaque. Meanwhile, skin preparations containing green tea - from deodorants to creams - are starting to appear on the market."

Do you guys drink it for the health benefits (listed in that link) (i.e.: help prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, etc), or is there a specific reason related to bodybuilding?

1: It's high in antioxidants to prevent bowel cancer, etc.
2: The polyphenols in green tea, specifically EGCG, have been shown to 'persuade' the body to burn some fat rather than just glucose during exercise
3: It's satisfying in the evening, when I'm cutting calories to get ripped and my appetite is going haywire.You gotta go through hell to get the body made in heaven.

I drink around 8 cups every day. Buy loose tea leaves, not tea bags, they're cheap as hell. I get a pound of green tea for a little over $5 (canadian) and it lasts a couple of months! You only need a tsp of leaves per cup - unlike the "dust" that tea bags contain, loose leaves expand like crazy when you add water so you don't need a whole lot.

green tea shouldn't be drank any time near a protein meal because the tannins in the tea will bind to the protein from the meal and render both unusable, this is the reason you aren't supposed to put milk in the tea.I drive really slow
