Green Tea Extract has long been used
by the Chinese as medicine to treat headaches, body ache, poor digestion,
and improve well-being and life expectancy. Green Tea has also quickly
become a very popular ingredient in most "fat burners" which you can buy
off-the-shelf due to its thermogenesis effects and anti-oxidant properties.
With green tea, dieters get can get weight loss without the "shakes" and
other unpleasent side effects.

This product has not been evaluated by the FDA and it's not intended to "diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease".
Green Tea Extract Powder in more Detail
Green Tea Extract is rich in bioflavonoids, and one of
its key features is fighting free radicals and other toxins in your body.
Green tea extract contains high level of polyphenols (a bioflavonoid), and
it is also a rich source of EGCG (a powerful antioxidant), that is over 100
times more potent than Vitamin E in fighting free radicals and pro-oxidants.
The EGCG in Green Tea Extract also helps to
protect against digestive infections and is anti-bacterial. It has also been
known to help lower cholesterol levels - the natural way!
Suggested Use for Green Tea Extract Powder
We suggest consuming between 500mg to
1000mg of Green
Tea Extract 2-3 times daily before meals.
1. A new study investigating the effects of
the major flavonoid component of green tea on hepatic steatosis (fatty
liver) found that it significantly protected livers that suffered
ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in mice.
2. The results of this study appear in the March 2005 issue of Liver
Transplantation, the official journal of the American Association for the
Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) and the International Liver Transplantation
3. Because fatty livers are more sensitive than lean livers to I/R injury
and are associated with an increased risk of disease and death, this has
resulted in fewer usable donors for liver transplants.
4. Tissue analysis showed that the EGCG mice had decreased necrosis (cell
death) and a higher percentage of viable tissue, demonstrating that the
flavonoid protected the liver from I/R injury.
5. Researchers developed a technique to measure fatty acids and found that
levels of palmitic and linoleic acid, two fatty acids that are present in
large amounts in fatty livers, decreased significantly in EGCG treated mice.
6. Further tests revealed an increase in hepatic energy stores (one of the
liver's functions is to store energy in the form of glycogen) in EGCG mice
and showed that EGCG was acting as an antioxidant, thereby protecting fatty
livers from I/R injury.
7. Significant differences to the fat content, energy stores and markers of
cellular injury were observed regardless of how the compound was
administered," the authors note.
8. The authors conclude that "the data presented here indicates that EGCG
protects the steatotic liver from I/R injury by reducing hepatic fat
content, increasing energy stores, serving as an antioxidant and may
stimulate the production of additional antioxidants such as GSH."
