Drinking green tea contributes to a healthy and long life.
The green tea extract comes from the camellia sinensis plant. This extract acts as an antioxidant, the value of which has been proven in scientific research for a long time. An extract is a good choice because it respects the natural balance (homeostasis) in the body.
Taking green tea extract reduces the risk of general mortality (death) and morbidity (susceptibility to certain diseases). The anti-oxidizing effect makes free radicals harmless, thereby slowing down wear of tissues and general aging. The stiffening and deterioration of the vein walls is thus prevented, whereby green tea extract offers protection against cardiovascular diseases.
The health effects (antioxidant, metal chelation, toxin degradation, anti-inflammatory, ...) are due to polyphenols, the most important of which are catechins. The most powerful catechin is epigallocatechin gallate (ECGC). It has already been established in various studies that the consumption of green tea is associated with a lower risk of death and disease.
When using an extract, standardization is possible which is not the case with consumption of tea. Also with an extract the caffeine can be almost completely removed, which is recommended.
We opt for a moderate dose because we assume a healthy diet as the basis. It is important that the green tea extract is not taken on an empty stomach.
