Description
 Antioxidants are agents that protect cells against the damage of free radicals and reduce the damage caused by low density lipoprotein (LDL) or 'bad' cholesterol in the blood. Tea contains a particular variety of polyphenols, known as catechins. Catechins include epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which is thought to be an important protective compound. It is believed that tea polyphenols help prevent arteriosclerosis, a condition characterised by narrowing of the arteries caused by fatty plaques. Inflammation is also believed to play a role in heart disease; tea polyphenols have a mild anti-inflammatory action in animal studies. Preliminary research also indicates that tea polyphenols may reduce the activity of platelets, which are the clotting agents of the blood.
Green Tea Polyphenols is a free flowing, light brown powder.
