How to track the benefits of green tea?
Many articles exist online that talk about the benefits of green tea. However, when I log green tea on my Cronometer app I see no impact on daily progress towards meeting any daily nutrient targets.
I'm wondering what the reason is for this is. Is it because the particular green tea I've logged is not correctly or fully defined in the database? As someone who has very little knowledge on nutrition I'm wondering if a cup of green tea might at least make a contribution to micronutrient targets. Also, in lots of articles on green tea, the word "polyphenols" is used a lot. I don't understand the science related to this but I'm wondering why these aren't tracked in Cronometer?
I guess what's on my mind is, if green tea (or anything else!) is so great, I'd like to be able to track what it's contributing to my nutritional targets that other foods aren't to assess its place in my daily routine?
