Solgar Green Tea Leaf Extract is a rich source of very potent free radical scavenging polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate and gallic acid. Green tea (Camellia sinensis) is made from unfermented leaves and contains the highest concentration of polyphenols.
Green tea has been extensively studied in people and results suggest that green tea through its antioxidant action may help to prevent atherosclerosis, high cholesterol, cancer and liver disease.
In addition, green tea has been shown to raise the activity of glutathione peroxidase and other antioxidant enzymes in the small intestine, liver and lungs.
Glutathione when combined with selenium forms glutathione peroxidase a potent antioxidant enzyme. Glutathione peroxidase is able to quench both reactive oxygen species and peroxide radicals, an action which makes it especially valuable in protecting cell membranes.
Antioxidants help block the damage to our body caused by free radicals. Free radicals occur naturally inside our body when food is transformed into energy. Lifestyle factors such as smoking cigarettes and alcohol consumption can also cause free radical damage to our body. Free radicals are also by products of environmental factors such as sunlight exposure, pollution. The build up of free radicals over time may be responsible for the aging process and suppressing the body's immune system. Free radical damage has also been linked to a range of diseases such as heart diseases, cancer and arthritis.
Evidence suggests that green tea possesses potent antibacterial and antiviral activity. This is likely due to the direct effects of catechins and the indirect effect of the raised levels of glutathione peroxidase.
Solgar Green Tea Leaf Extract may also help to relieve hayfever symptoms. Various flavonoids found in green tea have been shown to inhibit the release of histamine, a major chemical mediator in allergic reactions.
Clinical studies also suggest that green tea may boost metabolism and help burn fat.
