Green tea extract is a bioflavonoid rich,
potent extract used primarily for fighting free radicals.
It contains a high content of polyphenols, which are a class
of bioflavonoids. Green tea extract contains a potent antioxidant,
EGCG, which is over 200 times more powerful than vitamin
E in neutralizing the pro-oxidants and free radicals that
attack lipids in the brain. This important ingredient, Epigallocatechin
Gallate (EGCG), protects against digestive and respiratory
infections, helps to block the cancer promoting actions
of carcinogens, protects against high total and LDL cholesterol
levels, and blocks the attachment of the bacteria associated
with dental cavities to the teeth.
Green tea extract helps with thermogenesis and aids
in the metabolism of fat. Known for years as a powerful
antioxidant, it may also be helpful in shedding fat. The
most obvious benefit to dieters is that it works without
increasing the heart rate most often found in diet aids.

Most nutritionists and physicians advise that weight
loss can only be achieved through reducing food intake while
increasing energy expenditure. Research shows that green
tea extract seems to perform the energy expenditure required
in dieters to lose weight although the mechanisms behind
its action are unclear.
Green tea extract has shown as non-toxic in both acute
dosages and high long-term dosage. Additionally, it has
no potential for causing mutations, birth defects, and has
no adverse effect on fertility, pregnancy, or nursing mothers.
