6 Great Reasons to Take Green Tea Extract

Today, a traditional cup of tea often involves black or oxidized leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant brewed in hot water. However, for centuries all tea was infused in water in its natural, raw state. Thus, all tea was green tea. Over the centuries new tea varieties have been introduced and the way in which we enjoy a cup of tea has evolved.

Not only does green tea have a rich heritage, especially throughout Asia and India, it also has plenty of great health benefits. For these reasons, extracts of green tea leaves are frequently found in dietary supplements.

Concentrated green tea extracts are an excellent addition to multivitamin supplements for a number of reasons:

  1. Promotes Weight Loss
    Green tea extract contains a group of compounds called catechins that enhance fat metabolism, without increasing heart rate. Supplements containing green tea extract can help to stimulate weight loss without feelings of anxiety and jitteriness.
  2. Lowers Blood Pressure & Cholesterol
    Green tea extract lowers the concentration of bad cholesterol that promotes blood clotting, helping to safeguard against heart attacks and strokes. Also, green tea extract increases the production of good cholesterol, helping to cleanse the arteries and keep them flexible. This reduces the risk of atherosclerosis and associated heart disease. Anyone that suffers from hypertension may also benefit from green tea extract as it helps to lower blood pressure.
  3. Combats Cancer
    The catechins found in green tea extract are strong antioxidants. There is mounting scientific evidence to suggest that these compounds can inhibit the growth of cancer cells, helping to lower the risk of certain cancer types. In particular, green tea extracts have been shown to decrease the risk of colon cancer, esophageal cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer. With ongoing research into the relationship between catechins and cancer cells, it’s possible that these compounds will be widely used in future cancer treatments.
  4. Reduces Inflammation
    Green tea extract has been shown to reduce joint inflammation and pain in arthritic patients. It also assists in slowing down the breakdown of cartilage, helping to reduce susceptibility to developing arthritis.
  5. Regulates Blood Sugar Concentration
    Green tea extract contains polyphenols that decrease the body’s production of amylase, an enzyme that converts starch into sugar. By regularly taking green tea extract, it’s possible to lower blood sugar levels and assist in the management of diabetes.
  6. Anti-aging properties
