In contrast to black tea, green tea (Camellia sinensis) is made from unfermented tea leaves and naturally contains a high concentration of polyphenols. Polyphenols are natural plant compounds that act as powerful antioxidants and help fight free radicals, which can stress DNA as well as other compounds in the body. Many scientists believe that free radicals contribute to the aging process. Thus, taking a high quality green tea supplement on a daily basis may supply impressive antioxidant support as well as promote maximal health and well being.
One abundant type of polyphenol in green tea is called catechins. Catechins are known to exhibit potent free radical neutralizing properties. The major catechin in green tea leaves is called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) and is considered to be green tea’s key active component. It is also valued for its active antioxidant properties.
EGCG offers many benefits for overall health and well-being. It has been studied extensively for its benefits in weight maintenance through promotion of fat metabolism. Thus, it plays an important role in supporting overall health and wellness. EGCG has also been scientifically shown to assist in maintaining healthy tissues during normal metabolic stress.
EGCG, supports weight management benefits when coupled with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine. It works to help optimize metabolic wellness and also promotes cardiovascular health due to its abundant supply of antioxidant activity. Overall, green tea with its superb EGCG content, supports foundational health and wellness.
