Green Tea Extract 400mg -100 Veg caps
PROMOTES GENERAL HEALTH: Green tea extract is derived from the dried leaves of Camellia Sinesis. It is unfermented and contains concentrated compounds of polyphenols, and flavonoids, which are the active components believed to be responsible for its purported health benefits. Many of the beneficial effects of green tea are attributed to its abundant catechin, epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). Green tea extract promotes energy, supports immune function, helps maintain gut health, boost fat loss, and promotes mental alertness. Zenith Nutrition Green tea extract is a 100% vegetarian supplement which provides 400mg of green tea extract per serving.
BOOSTS IMMUNITY: Green tea extract has a strong potential to boost the immune system, reduce the formation of reactive oxygen species, increases the activity of pro-oxidant enzyme such as glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase through its antioxidant properties. Green tea extract reduces various inflammatory chemokines and cytokines as inflammation and oxidative stress is the pathogenic feature. Green tea extract has the ability to increase the number of regulatory T cells that play a role in immune function. Green tea extract might provide a long-term, sustainable way to accomplish this goal without toxicity.
SUPPORTS CARDIO HEALTH: Studies have shown that catechins, the major polyphenolic compounds in green tea extract exert vascular protective effects through multiple mechanisms like antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering effects. The catechins inhibit the key enzymes involved in lipid biosynthesis and reduce intestinal lipid absorption, thereby improving the lipid profile. The catechins regulate vascular tone by activating endothelial nitric oxide and by preventing vascular inflammation that plays a critical role in keeping heart healthy.
MAY PROMOTE WEIGHT LOSS: Green tea extract is a good, natural way to lose weight. Reports have shown that regular intake of green tea extract is associated with thermogenesis favouring weight loss and body fat loss. Green tea extract is effective at decreasing absorption of lipids thus reducing calorie intake. By activating AMPK, green tea extract inhibits synthesis of fatty acids, decrease gluconeogenesis, and fatty acid synthesis. Studies have observed the positive benefits of green tea extract on fat metabolism at rest and during exercise, following both shorter and longer term usage.
POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT PROTECTION: Accumulating evidence indicates that oxidative stress, caused by overproduction of reactive oxygen species can cause a pathogenic outcome. The health benefits of green tea extract are mainly attributed to its antioxidant properties, including the ability of catechins to scavenge reactive oxygen species or chelate with metal ions. Because of the number and arrangement of their phenolic hydroxyl groups, catechins are excellent electron donors and efficient scavengers of free radicals such as superoxide anions, singlet oxygen, nitric oxide (NO) and peroxynitrite.
PROMOTES LIVER HEALTH: Green tea extract is unfermented, it has the highest level of polyphenol with well-packed health benefits. The catechin component, which is known for its powerful antioxidant properties help protect the liver from free radical damage. The polyphenolic compounds in green tea extract help in the natural process of the liver which is detoxification and also supports liver health by eliminating the potential risk from free radicals. EGCG, the main catechin in green tea is believed to reduce liver oxidation stress and also promote lipid metabolism in the liver.
