Summary:

Green Tea

Green Tea is a popular beverage consumed worldwide. It has also been used as a dietary supplement for a number of years to maximise its health benefits. These benefits include antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective [4] and anxiolytic properties. Green tea's health benefits are attributed to its constituents; green tea polyphenols (ECGC) and L-theanine.

EGCG

Epigallocatechingallate is a type of catechin and type of tannin - its molecular structure includes catechin and gallic acid. EGCG possesses prominent antioxidant properties and may help to retard the aging process.

L-Theanine (delta-glutamylethylamide) is one of the predominant amino acids ordinarily found in green tea, and historically has been used as a relaxing agent. It has been found to increase GABA activity in the brain, promoting relaxation.

Studies suggest green tea (containing a total of 250mg of catechins), consumed within a balanced controlled diet, improves the overall antioxidative status and protects against oxidative damage in humans.

Thermogenesis is the process by which the body generates heat, or energy by increasing the metabolic rate and 'burning' brown adipose tissue. Green tea extract has been shown to assist with weight loss through a number of differing actions including inhibition of lipases and stimulation of thermogenesis.

Indications:
  • Green tea extract may support antioxidant defences
  • Green tea extract may support thermogenesis
