Green Tea and EGCG
Green tea is taken from the camellia sinensis plant. The leaves contain potent levels of several types of polyphenols, in particular flavonoids. The most potent flavonoids in green tea include the catechin epigallocatechingallate (EGCG). This is thought to help neutralise free-radicals and protect DNA, vital organs and tissues throughout the body. The health benefits of green tea are deep and wide ranging. Much of the scientific research surrounding green tea has focused on the role EGCG may play in the maintenance of health.
How can green tea help me?
The flavonoid compounds in green tea may help to protect the heart by preserving the delicate cells that line blood vessels. This enhances circulation and the transportation of nutrients around the body. Green tea is also believed to improve the ratio of HDL good cholesterol to LDL bad cholesterol in the blood. Recent media coverage hailed green tea as the elixir of life in response to findings from clinical trials that suggest green tea can increase life expectancy. Other findings show that green tea may support weight loss as part of a calorie controlled diet.
A natural boost for health
The popularity of green tea has grown over recent years, with many people choosing it as a healthful alternative to normal tea. To create black tea, the leaves undergo an oxidation process, which destroys many of the nutrients within the leaves. Because green tea leaves are not subjected to oxidation, they retain their high polyphenol content.
