Green tea extract powder
Green tea extract is considered to be a strong antioxidant even stronger than Vitamin C. There have been experiments done on polyphenols that is found in green tea that shows strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidants help to protect us from the free radicals. Free radicals are basically molecules with unpaired electrons, which makes them unstable and chemically reactive. When we are young, our cells harbor a defense system called superoxide dismutase (SOD) that helps fight these free radicals – but as we age, SOD doesn’t work so well. This allows the free radicals to damage our cells, and with time, these accumulated detrimental effects of free radicals show up as aging, fatigue, and other serious ailments. Antioxidants fight these free radicals and the resultant oxidative stress is quite simple – they neutralize the free radicals. This reduces their harmful effects on the cells. Because of the same antioxidants, green tea can help keep skin looking healthy and vital.
