Thank you. That is interesting that green tea works similar to exercise. This caution is also worth quoting:
Ristow himself drinks green tea every day, a practice he recommends. But he advises against taking green tea extracts or concentrates. “At a certain concentration, it becomes toxic,” he says. High-dose catechins inhibit mitochondria to such an extent that cell death ensues, which can be particularly dangerous in the liver. Anyone consuming these polyphenols in excessive doses risks damaging their organs.

And probably wise to assume that excess means the sum total of all the foods/supplements containing polyphenols one ingests per day, not just green tea.
