Health Benefits Provided by Green Tea P.E. 50% EGCG

The main teas, black, oolong and green share many similarities, however one of the ways in which Green Tea differs from the rest is that it does not go through a fermentation process. They all come from the same plant, but have different ways of being processed, thus impacting the reasons they are taken and how they are used.

Since Green Tea is not a fermented product, it has high Polyphenol content. Polyphenols are normally lost during fermentation, and though the other tea types do contain some, they have much less than Green Tea does. These Polyphenols have antioxidant properties which are what protect the body from free radicals.

Though Vitamin E and C are often touted as being powerful antioxidants, time and time again various studies have shown that Polyphenols actually contain more antioxidants than Vitamin E or C. On top of that Polyphenols are also responsible for increasing the effectiveness of the body's own antioxidant enzymes, thereby adding an even greater level of protection. Glutathione is one of these enzymes, which makes Green Tea Extract with Polyphenols even more useful as this enzyme reduces inflammation and protects the cartilage.

Green Tea also contains EGCG (Gallocatechol, sometimes referred to as Epigallocatechin) which is a type of compound that can be found in such diverse areas as green tea, bananas, and pomegranates. This compound goes on to provide aid to areas of the body such as the immune system, and the central nervous system, giving this supplement a wide variety of uses. Due to the reactions that EGCG causes in the nervous system, this allows the cells in the brain to be ultra-receptive to impulses, meaning that EGCG may have the ability to increase mental capacity and cognition speed.

Aside from the way in which green tea influences the immune system, it has been the subject of numerous studies into its functions as an Anticarcinogen. No conclusive evidence has been published yet, but prospects are positive.
