Green tea is a popular beverage obtained from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, known to humanity and cultivated for thousands of years. Green tea contains a great amount of phenolic antioxidants, mostly catechins. Other substances present in it are bioflavonoids, phenolic acids, L-theanine and caffeine.
Studies demonstrate that components in green tea are highly beneficial for health, mainly due to antioxidant activity of catechins. They can prevent many debilitating diseases, including neurodegenerative and cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease. Apart from that, they also show anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, anti-ageing and many other positive properties.
Epigallocatechin 3-gallate (EGCG) is the main and the most powerful catechin present in green tea. EGCG shows a number of properties promoting cardiovascular health. It increases antioxidant potential of the body system, which results in a reduction of LDL oxidation, which is highly important for atherosclerosis prevention. It can also inhibit the enzyme squalene epoxidase, a rate-limiting enzyme that converts squalene into cholesterol.
EGCG effectively helps to lose weight in a healthy way. Along with other catechins in green tea, it can prevent adipogenesis through many pathways, such as inhibition of PPARγ receptors or the enzyme fatty acid synthase. EGCG stimulates also beta-oxidation in the liver. Tests on people have also demonstrated the influence of green tea catechins on the treatment of metabolic syndrome, including obesity and type 2 diabetes.
To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Green Tea EGCG contains a safe and natural plant able to solve some metabolic problems, improve the condition of the cardiovascular system and promote healthy body weight management. Green tea has been used as a health-enhancing beverage for thousands of years. According to research, metabolism promotion and cardiovascular disease prevention can be achieved after drinking 5–6 cups of green tea a day, which can be a challenge.
