Solgar Green Tea Leaf Extract Vegetable CapsulesAntioxidant health supplement
Green Tea Leaf Extract Vegetable Capsules is one of Solgar's premium quality botanical formulas containing standardised extracts. Green tea is a rich source of very potent free radical scavenging polyphenols, such as epigallocatechin gallate and gallic acid. In addition, it has been shown to raise the activity of glutathione peroxidase and other antioxidant enzymes in the small intestine, liver and lungs.
Evidence suggests that green tea possesses a potent activity against harmful bacteria and viruses, most likely due to the direct effects of catechins and the indirect effect of the raised levels of glutathione peroxidase.
Various flavonoids found in green tea have been shown to inhibit the release of histamine, a major chemical mediator in allergic reactions.
Green tea contains compounds such as theophylline and caffeine, both which have been shown to enhance the rate of fat metabolism. Since the greater the rate of fat metabolism the more free radicals are produced, green tea's antioxidant properties are especially useful. (Although coffee contains higher levels of caffeine, it also contains potentially harmful roasted hydrocarbons, which are potent free radical sources.)
Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) is believed to gently increase our metabolic rate (our body’s ability to convert food into energy) and for this reason has soared in popularity with those watching their waistlines. It is also a powerful antioxidant and free radical scavenger. These effects are as a result of compounds known as catechins (polyphenols) found in high quality green tea leaf extracts.
