Green Tea Extract – A Simple Way To Boost Our Immune System
Green tea has long been one of the most commonly consumed teas in the world and the science of its immune-boosting properties dates back to over 100 years!
Specifically, green tea’s immune boosting ability is to promote the activity of gammadelta T cells, a type of immune T cell that appears to be found primarily in the gut mucosa, skin, lungs and uterus, and are involved in the spreading of our body’s immune response to act as a first-line immune defense mechanism.
Green tea’s timeless health benefits can be traced to its naturally occurring bioactive compounds called polyphenols. Impressively, scientific articles have revealed that the polyphenolic compounds in green tea called catechins, which exhibit potent free radical neutralizing properties, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and epicatechin gallate (ECG), can directly support the immune system response to a physical, chemical or emotional stressor, all of which unchecked, will certainly test a weakened immune system.
EGCG appears to be the major catechin in the green tea leaves fantastic immune boosting and overall health supporting benefits….however, studies have shown potential additional benefits of EGCC to be:
Support in weight management and weight loss
Support and promote Heart Health
Support healthy liver function
Support healthy brain function
Cancer fighting due to powerful antioxidant properties
Support Skin Health
Support healthy blood sugar levels
And so, like green tea, green tea extract is a phenomenal way to boost your immune system as well as a great source of antioxidant protection for overall health and wellness support in a concentrated form! Meaning, that instead of drinking 3 to 5 cups of green tea a day, you can get what you need in a concentrated liquid or capsule form.
If you’re interested in boosting your immune system and overall health with green tea extract, I recommend our Green Tea ND (liquid form) or Green Tea Extract (capsule form).
Make it a Healthy Day!!
