Green Tea Extract Vcaps 120
A Powerful Antioxidant
Green tea has graduated from the teapot to the medicine chest as science has shown its wide-reaching effectiveness in addressing concerns ranging from sunburn to life-threatening problems. Research conducted in the last 20 years has confirmed that green tea, known primarily as a pleasant beverage around the world, contains a long list of very impressive phytonutrients that traditional healers have been tapping into for centuries.
Green Tea PG is the natural choice, unleashing all of green tea’s powerful benefits not just for those with good digestion and absorption, but for literally everyone. It is the first nutraceutical preparation designed to assure absorption of the full spectrum of green tea’s awesome polyphenols. Using only quantum-state quality, organic Japanese green tea that has been “nanized” (i.e. pre-digested into extremely small particles). Super Nano-Green Tea™ is rapidly absorbed into the blood stream where it immediately goes to work. No other form of green tea can offer such a quantum boost in phytonutrient bioavailability and quality.

Green Tea’s Secret
The key phytochemicals in green tea, called polyphenols, have captured the attention of many scientific studies. They give green tea its special power. Dr. Yukihiko Hara, noted researcher and a world authority on green tea, has found that its polyphenols help promote anti-hyperglycemic, anti-hypertensive, anti-hypercholesterolemic, and fat-reducing effects. Polyphenols have also been shown to protect DNA from damage inflicted from harmful chemicals and even radiation. Green tea’s polyphenols are also extremely effective as antioxidants capable of inhibiting mutation and formation of cancerous cells as well as providing extraordinary protection for the heart, kidneys and the skin.
Polyphenols and Cancer
Free radicals are dangerous compounds caused by many things such as exposure to radiation or internal chemical reactions that can attack your body’s cells and harm your DNA. Free radicals can multiply, work together and initiate cascading chain reactions that, over time, can trigger pathological cell mutations which may lead to cancer. The extraordinary bio-availability of the polyphenols in Sunper Nano-Green Tea™ allows it to easily outperform other green tea sources delivering antioxidants that neutralize free radicals, halting their potentially lethal cascade and converting them to nontoxic compounds.
Polyphenols have also been shown to protect healthy cells from mutation and cancer. One study on the anticarcinogenic properties of green tea showed a 44% inhibition of prostate cancer with no toxic side effects. Another study indicated that 50% of mice treated for tumors with orally administered green tea polyphenols remained tumor-free with a 70% overall increase in life expectancy. The antioxidant “oomph” of green tea has also been recommended as a preventative measure for heart disease, kidney disease, and skin damage from ultraviolet light exposure.
Scientific research shows a direct correlation between the aging process and the accumulation of harmful compounds called Advanced Glycation End products (AGEs) within the body. In one cutting-edge study conducted by the University of Shizuoka, researchers observed that the formation of AGEs were suppressed by the polyphenolic action of green tea, thus acting as an agent to greatly decrease the risk of age-related disease.
Fat and Cholesterol Blocker
Green tea is also an excellent addition to any sensible weight control program. Fat digestion is reduced through green tea’s inhibition of the enzymes responsible for fat breakdown, so rather than accumulating fat in unwanted places, your body simply passes it through. Green tea’s thermogenic effects also help to maintain normal body weight. A compelling study showed that taking three 90 mg. doses/day of green tea extract burned 266 more calories per day than those who did not use the extract. That is more calories than an average session on a treadmill (and they weren’t even using a nanized version). Additionally, green tea polyphenols help prevent LDL cholesterol from forming atherosclerotic plaques. That’s great news for those concerned about heart and artery disease.
Diabetes and Green Tea
The news about fat and cholesterol may be of special interest to the millions of diabetics who have to watch their weight to maintain their health. What’s more, green tea is able help quell hyperglycemia by inhibiting amylase, the enzyme that converts carbohydrates into glucose. For those who struggle with high blood sugar levels, green tea may provide a key benefit.
Relief For Body and Mind
Green tea’s benefits not only help the body, but the mind and spirit as well. Green tea users can expect powerful antioxidant cleansing and protection. Green tea is also famous as great support for recovery from mental depression, helps enhance alertness, relief of mental fatigue, and improvement of mental function without the feeling of nervousness or being jittery.
Green Tea vs. Black Tea
Green tea has become famous for its spectacular benefits in comparison with black tea. What’s the difference between green tea and black tea? Although both teas come from the same plant (Camellia sinenis), it is the processing that makes the key difference. The breaking of the leaves of the plants and exposing them to the oxygen of the air produces black tea. The resulting natural fermentation process destroys the most important biological ingredients of the the- the tannins. By contrast, during the production of green tea, the leaves are stabilized through exposure to both humid and dry heat. This eliminates fermentation-producing enzymes and safeguards the nutrients.
Due to fermentation, black tea assumes drug-like qualities. Since tannins and other important nutrients are no longer present in the tea, its caffeine appears in free and unbound form. The stimulating effect of the quickly released caffeine causes the addictive effect of black tea. It triggers a "fight or flight" response in the body. Since the body treats the ingested caffeine as a nerve toxin, the adrenal glands naturally respond by secreting the antidote adrenalin. This defense response by the body has stimulating and enlivening effect. However, as the effects of the caffeine and adrenaline diminish, the body starts feeling tired and may end up exhausted.
Green tea works in a different way. The large amounts of tannins in green tea make certain that the caffeine is taken to the brain in only small and well-dosed amounts, which actually harmonizes the energies of the body. Unlike black tea, the original, green version of the tea makes the body's own energy-use more efficient. This helps the consumer of green tea improve his vitality and stamina without having to experience the "up and down" effect so often accompanied with the consumption of black tea.
