Green Tea has become a benchmark antioxidant based on its high concentrations of polyphenols, a powerful class of bioflavonoids that have been shown to greatly assist in the destruction of oxidation forming free radicals.
Although it's commonly used in teas, aromatherapy and tinctures, the highest concentrations can be found in capsule form. Chinese Herbs Direct's Advanced Formula Green Tea extract is standardized to 40% catechins and 60% Polyphenols - providing unmatched potency of the vital ingredients within Green Tea.
According to a recent article in the Journal of Neuroscience, an ingredient in green tea has prevented Alzheimer's disease-like brain damage in mice. The compound, called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), decreased production of the protein beta-amyloid, which accumulates in the brains of Alzheimer's patients and causes nerve damage and memory loss. "The findings suggest that a concentrated component of green tea can decrease brain beta-amyloid plaque formation," senior researcher Dr. Jun Tan, director of the Neuroimmunology Laboratory at the the University of South Florida's Silver Child Development Center, said in a prepared statement. "If beta-amyloid pathology in this Alzheimer's mouse model is representative of Alzheimer's disease pathology in humans, EGCG dietary supplementation may be effective in preventing and treating the disease," Tan said. The researchers will next study whether multiple oral doses of EGCG improve memory loss in mice with Alzheimer's. "If those studies show clear cognitive benefits, we believe clinical trials of EGCG to treat Alzheimer's disease would be warranted," Tan said.
