Green Tea Extract


teacup1Green Tea Extract is a herbal derivative from green tea leaves and has been used for centuries due to its wide and varied health benefits. Many of these benefits are now backed by research, which has found that Green Tea Extract has a rich presence of bioflavonoids and antioxidants such as EGCG (catechin epigallocatechin gallate). It is thought to have approximately twice the antioxidant levels of Vitamin C. These antioxidants are thought to fight free radicals present in the body as well as limit the negative effects of fatty diets and smoking. ECGC is also thought to enhance the process of thermogenesis and increases the rate of metabolism of fat, without increasing the heart rate, thus helping you lose weight without jitteriness or feelings of anxiety. Green tea extracts also contain a wide-range of anti-inflammatory characteristics, so could be helpful in treating chronic inflammatory states. Green tea extract is thought by many users to help tooth decay, lower cholesterol, blood pressure, help regulate blood sugar levels, remove toxins and potentially fight infection.
