About the Green Tea Antioxidant

The ability to protect the brain and fight against diseases such as Alzheimers has also
been found to be a benefit of green tea antioxidants. A recent study shows this to be
true since high doses of green teas ingredient EGCG reduces the formation of
beta-amyloid proteins in the brain of mice that developed Alzheimers disease.

EGCG is a flavonoid type of antioxidants that is typically found in plants and has been
connected with many health benefits, including protecting against cancer and heart
disease. EGCG is an important antioxidant in green tea that is proven to be the most
primary explanation for why green tea is beneficial to a persons health.

The polyphenols in green tea claim to also contain antioxidants that are more potent
such as Vitamin C and E. EGCG is better at protecting the cells and genetic material,
or DNA, from damage than Vitamin C by 100 times and Vitamin E by 25 times. The
damage to cells and genetic materials has been linked to health problems such as
cancer, heart disease and other potentially life threatening illnesses.

The antioxidants that are found in green tea are important to acknowledge and
understand. You should also know the positive aspects you can get from the
components of these antioxidants that help your health and well-being.
