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.
The antioxidant EGCG sets in motion a process called apoptosis. Interestingly, the cell death that ensues only affects cancer cells, not healthy ones. EGCG may well enhance the body's natural antioxidant system as well, encouraging the elimination of damaging oxygen molecules called free radicals.
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 and cancer, among other ailments. According to epidemiologic studies, Japanese men and women who use green tea daily are more likely to live longer (they're also more likely to stay cancer- and heart disease-free).
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.
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted a study in which it was found that green tea extract significantly increased energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), and fat oxidation. The researchers felt that this study had wonderful implications for weight control. The study indicated a nearly 40% increase in daytime thermogenesis. In other words, dieters would burn 40% more fat during the day with Green Tea Extract.
