• Helps Boost Energy

• With potent polyphenols
What is Green Tea?
Green Tea is a powerful antioxidant, that has been used for centuries to promote good health. Green tea is well-established as a potent source of healing antioxidants-the same beneficial compounds found in fruits and vegetables, and even in red wine. The leaf also boasts the presence of a superstar antioxidant called EGCG (epigallocatechin-gallate) as well as other notable healing substances, including fluoride, catechins, and tannins.
This remarkable antioxidant benefits of Green Tea are attributed to its potent level of polyphenols. Of the four primary polyphenols in Green Tea research reveals that Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most effective.
What does Green Tea do?
• Counter ageing: Given the latest findings on the potent antioxidants in green tea, it's no wonder that this product has long been touted for promoting long life. Its high antioxidant concentrations apparently enhance longevity by fighting heart disease. According to epidemiologic studies, Japanese men and women who use green tea daily are more likely to live longer.
• Treat arthritis: Antioxidants in green tea may prevent and reduce the severity of osteoarthritis. Studies have shown that if you consume approximately four cups of green tea a day you may be able to protect yourself from developing arthritis, and if you already have arthritis, consuming green tea can help to diminish the inflammation it causes.
Ongoing research suggests that thanks to its numerous and varied antioxidant compounds, taking green tea regularly may help guard against heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels and reducing blood pressure, promote longevity, stave off tooth decay (the tea contains the cavity fighter, fluoride), help heal gum infections, and provide a number of other benefits.
Because it contains astringent tannin compounds, green tea in moderation can ease indigestion, diarrhea, and other forms of stomach upset. Swiss researchers even have preliminary evidence that green tea accelerates the burning of fat calories in people who are overweight. A small but interesting 1999 study reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition reported increased energy expenditure and fat oxidation in men who took a green tea extract as opposed to a placebo or caffeine alone.
Who needs it and what are symptoms of deficiency?
Everyone can benefit from supplementing with green tea. Populations that may benefit most from the supplementation of green tea include: healthy adults, bodybuilders and athletes, persons looking to maintain gut health, and those wanting to lose bodyfat (weight). Maintaining gut health is imperative not only for athletes who require opimum protein utilization, synthesis, and nitrogen balance, but for all person looking to maintain optimal health. Maintaining gut health will result in improved digestion. Green tea also helps (through CNS stimulation) in the weight-loss process. For years green tea has been added to dietary weight-loss formulations. Its high caffeine content helps to increase body temperature, thereby increasing thermogenesis and fatty-acid liberation from adiposites. It also acts as a dieuretic, removing from the body excess water that can lead to a bloated look.
