This excellent herbal supplement has been used for thousands of years by the Chinese and other nations for many different reasons.
• Green Tea Extract provides antioxidant support and may help protect cellular membranes against the injurious effects of excessive free radicals.*
• Both black and green tea are diuretic, helping weight loss associated with water retention.
• Black and green tea also help with weight reduction by improving fat metabolism. The polyphenols, strong antioxidants, are responsible for most of the health benefits. The proportion of polyphenols is higher in green tea.
• Other health benefits include artery protection, cholesterol reduction and cancer protection.
• An antidiarrheal effect can be attributed to a combination of the tannin effect and the fact that doses of 400 mg polyphenols administered three times daily promotes the growth of Lactobacillis and Bifidobacter species (good bacteria) while inhibiting the growth of Clostridium perfringens and Clostridium difficile (bad bacteria).
• The resorption of alkaline medications can be delayed because of chemical bonding with the tannins.
• Excessive amounts of green tea – because of it’s stimulant effect – could lead to restlessness and even Restless Leg Syndrome.
• Coumadin – high in vitamin K, may decrease drug effect
• Care should be taken with persons who have weakened cardiovascular systems, renal diseases, thyroid hyperfunction, elevated susceptibility to spasm and certain psychic disorders.
• Pregnant women should not exceed a dosage of 300 mg of caffeine per day (5 cups per day). It is preferable to avoid caffeine altogether.
• Infants whose nursing mothers consume beverages containing caffeine could suffer from sleep disorders.
