Green tea in the form of drink or capsule helps to cut down the 'bad cholesterol' (LDL cholesterol) by 5-6 points from total cholesterol, according to a US study. Green tea as a drink is more effective than capsules containing the green tea compound- catechins. Catechins reduce the cholesterol absorption in the gut.

The study suggests that mild to moderate consumption of green tea along with cholesterol lowering medication can yield a better outcome of the cholesterol levels.

The findings have been published in the 'Journal of the American Dietetic Association'.
