Benefits of Green Tea Extract
Green tea extract is the concentrated active ingredients extracted from
green tea. The benefits of green tea extract stem from the antioxidant
action of nutrients called "polyphenols". Because green tea is made from
the unfermented leaves of the camellia sinensis plant, it has far more of
these antioxidants than black tea, which is fermented. Antioxidants help
prevent damage to the body that is a by-product of aging and metabolism.
The health benefits of green tea extract have been known since ancient
times. Green tea has been prescribed for centuries as part of ancient
Chinese medicine. For years, western doctors have ignored the wealth of
knowledge represented in traditional medicine, discounting it as "folklore"
and "old wives' tales". Recent research has made western doctors think
twice, though. A number of recent and on-going studies strongly suggest
that the health benefits of green tea extract are very real.
How Green Tea Extract Helps You
The polyphones in green tea extract are among the most powerful
antioxidants known, and that is the source of the benefits of green tea
extract. Antioxidants have been shown by research to help prevent cancer,
heart disease, age related vision loss and many other diseases and
conditions that accompany aging.
- The benefits of Green tea extract can help prevent atherosclerosis.
Several population based studies comparing cultures that consume green tea
in large amounts strongly suggest that green tea helps prevent heart
- Green tea extract have been shown to lower overall cholesterol while
raising HDL - the good cholesterol in a number of animal and human
- More benefits of Green tea extract - the antioxidants in green tea
extract help prevent cancer. The cancer rates in countries like Japan,
where green tea is consumed regularly are consistently lower than those in
countries that don't drink green tea. Researchers pinpoint the polyphones
in green tea as an important weapon in the body's fight against cancer.
- Green tea extract helps prevent the development of diabetes and slow its
progression once it has developed. Researchers in one study fed green tea
extract to mice that were genetically engineered to develop diabetes. The
mice that ate diets supplemented with green tea extract did not develop
diabetes on schedule. Catechin, the active ingredient in green tea extract,
may help in the treatment of viral hepatitis. One study found that men who
drank 10 or more cups of green tea are less likely to develop liver
disorders than men who don't.
Because green tea contains caffeine, most nutritionists recommend using a
green tea supplement, or a health supplement that includes extract of green
tea along with other nutrients, vitamins and minerals that work together.
The proper balance of vitamins, minerals, proteins, amino acids and
antioxidants work together synergistically, with each ingredient supporting
and increasing the bioavailability and effectiveness of the others.
Synergy is one important factor in choosing the right supplement for your
health needs. Another is quality. Because the FDA does not regulate the
production of nutritional supplements, the health supplement industry has
taken steps to self-regulate. When you choose a health supplement, look for
one that follows GMP protocols in packaging and handling all ingredients in
