What is Green Tea?
This prominent variety of tea has been prized for thousands of years. Like other teas, it consists of leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant, which is native to Asia. Chinese and Japanese cultures have historically used the tea as a key element in day-to-day life, appreciating it for its refreshing flavor and incorporating it into tea ceremonies and traditional wellness practices. Centuries before science confirmed green tea's beneficial properties, Buddhist monks acknowledged its vitality-promoting effects. In recent years, the tea, as well as green tea extract, has become increasingly popular in Western countries, particularly the United States.**
Unlike black tea, which is subjected to a complicated fermenting procedure, green tea is gently steamed. Because it is only minimally processed, green tea retains more of its natural compounds, including numerous health-enhancing antioxidant-rich polyphenols. Among these beneficial nutrients are catechins, most notably epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has been extensively investigated for its ability to optimize overall well-being by helping to fight the cell-damaging effects of free radical-induced oxidative stress.**
Green Tea Products
Green tea supplements are derived from the tea plant's leaves and are most widely sold in capsule, tablet or liquid form. The tea is also available as a powder, loose leaves or in tea bags. It naturally contains caffeine, but some varieties are processed to be presented as decaffeinated products. Green tea extract supplements are often standardized to contain 15% polyphenols, ensuring a minimum level of the herb’s active constituents.**
Green Tea Extract Directions for Use
Talk to your health professional before beginning any nutritional supplement program. While there is no standard green tea dosage, green tea extract is commonly offered in the range of 100 mg to 350 mg.**
