Green tea is full of catechins, complex organic molecules that may help to reduce pain and boost weight loss. Overall, green tea has the most catechins per cup -- about 30 to 40 percent of dry matter; black tea, which is more popular in America, has considerably less -- about 5 to 10 percent of dry matter. In one study presented at the Society of Critical Care Medicine, researchers found that green tea may help block the arthritis-inflammatory response.
