About Green Tea and Antioxidants
What is Green Tea?
Green tea comes from the same plant as black tea, but does not undergo the fermentation process needed to make black tea. Green Tea is very high in antioxidants known as catechins. The most important green tea antioxidant is EGCG, one of the catechins.
Where does Green Tea come from?
Green tea grows in rainy areas with tropical and subtropical climates throughout the world. However, Japan, India and China are the most well known sources of commercial grade green tea.
- Green Tea and its major antioxidant EGCG have been the subject of numerous human clinical studies. EGCG has been shown to inhibit the uptake of fat into fat cells and at higher doses, and has been shown to burn fat and reduce a person’s waistline – sometimes considerably. Green tea quickly travels throughout your system and offers major protection for the digestive tract, a man’s prostate, a woman’s breasts, and cervical tissue thereby reducing the risk of dangerous cellular changes.
- Green tea has an effect on upper respiratory tract infections and is very beneficial during flu and cold season. Green tea controls the bacteria associated with bad breath and gum disease and is hard on problematic bacteria in the digestive tract including yeasts yet ignores the intestine’s healthier bacteria that are required for good digestion.
