Why Every Senior Needs Green Tea
One of the most important benefits of Green Tea Extract™ is that it is one of the best natural sources of antioxidants. There are four primary polyphenols in Green Tea and they are commonly referred to as catechins. Experts at the University of Kansas have proclaimed that Green Tea has 100 times the antioxidant strength of Vitamin C and 25 times that of Vitamin E.
These powerful antioxidants (catechins) have been shown in numerous studies to slow aging, fight viruses, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and have an overall beneficial effect on health. Clinical tests have shown that catechins destroy free radicals and have a significant positive effect on cellular integrity, affecting every organ throughout the entire body.
Free radicals are highly reactive molecules and fragments of molecules that can damage the body at the cellular level leaving the body susceptible to cancer, heart disease and many other degenerative diseases.
Research studies over the past 12 years in both Asia and several western countries are providing impressive and convincing evidence of the many health benefits associated with Green Tea.

Antioxidants help repair damage to cells and blood vessel walls caused by free radicals. They also help reduce blood clotting which lessens the risk of a heart attack. Various amounts of flavonoids are also found in fruits and vegetables.
Experts at King's College, London studied 340 men and women who had suffered heart attacks and matched them with people who had no history of heart attacks. Findings revealed that the tea drinkers' risk of a heart attack approached half that of the non-tea drinkers. Scientists speculate the beneficial cardio effects are due to the tea's large amounts of flavonoids.
Several studies have found that people who consume lots of flavonoids are less likely to die from coronary artery disease, and another study linked high flavonoid consumption to a reduced risk of heart attack.
