Green Tea Extracts

In laboratories around the globe, green tea is sparking tremendous excitement as new health applications keep being discovered.

The most active green tea constituent is called epigallocatechin gallate. This unique flavonoid favorably alters pathways underlying pathological processes such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. All of this points to green tea as a broad-spectrum nutrient that may promote long life.

Green tea is consumed routinely in Asian populations, who have greater longevity and lower mortality rates for diseases that are prevalent in Western society.

Given the huge scientific literature supporting the positive role of green tea in preventing neurodegenerative diseases, not to mention its benefits in helping to prevent cancer and other diseases, as well as its lack of toxicity, there isample reason for consuming green tea polyphenols on a regular basis.
