Green tea is just wonderful for you, in addition to its great flavor it has many health benefits including helping oyu with your annoying urinary tract infection.

So why it works? Green tea has anti-microbial effects if you are prone to frequent UTIs. Green tea is derived from the leaves of a plant known as Camellia sinensis. It has been used for its broad pharmacological potential in a variety of traditional medicine practices for centuries.
Green tea contains a rich supply of plant compounds called polyphenols, which are well known for having strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects.

A single cup (240 mL) of brewed green tea contains approximately 150 mg of EGC. In other words, green tea works as a natural antibiotic for killing E. coli in the bladder and urinary tract that causes UTI. A moderate intake is recommended.
