Rajam Green Tea Jar 200 Grams
Rajam Green Tea extract is derived from leaves of camellia sinensis, the plant from which green, black and oolong teas are made.
Green tea extract is associated with several health benefits, many supported by preliminary scientific research.
These benefits include potential cancer-fighting properties, and a strong antioxidant effect that protects the body from the damaging effect of free radicals.
The scientific community notes, however, that continued research is necessary.
Green tea extract, like many herbs, is standardized in the production phase to guarantee that a certain percentage of the active ingredients remain present in the final capsulized form. The active ingredients in green tea extract are polyphenols in the form of flavonoids like catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
Polyphenols, flavonoids, catechins and EGCG are powerful antioxidants that appear to interfere with and reduce the spread of certain types of cancer cells. The antioxidant activity of EGCG in green tea extract is purportedly up to 100 times more powerful than that of vitamin C or E.
