Mega Green Tea Extract Decaffeinated
What makes green tea extract such an important nutrient to supplement with are the large volumes of published scientific findings that validate its multiple biological benefits. The most significant studies show that green tea extract helps maintain cellular DNA and membrane structural integrity.*
The active constituents in green tea are powerful antioxidants called polyphenols (catechins) and flavonols. Several catechins are present in green tea and account for the bulk of favorable research reports. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most powerful of these catechins.
The antioxidant activity of green tea EGCG is about 25-100 times more potent than vitamins C and E. One cup of green tea may provide 10-40 mg polyphenols and has antioxidant activity greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.
Research shows that green tea may help maintain the health of the arterial wall by reducing lipids while maintaining healthy platelet aggregation.*
There is also evidence from some studies that green tea provides immunoprotective qualities, particularly in the case of patients undergoing radiation or chemotherapy. White blood cell count appears to be maintained more effectively in patients consuming green tea compared to nonsupplemented patients.
Green tea may also help to maintain a healthy body weight.* In one study, mice receiving green tea in their diets had a significant suppression of food intake, weight gain and fat tissue accumulation. Levels of cholesterol and triglycerides were lower in mice who received green tea. This study also showed that leptin levels decreased with green tea treatment, indicating that green tea may have a direct effect in reducing body weight.
