Get to know this delicious superfood and learn why it’s an active ingredient in Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®.
After water, tea is the second-most consumed beverage in the world. From black tea to herbal tea, it comes in many different shades and flavors. But green tea might be the most powerful among them. In fact, green tea is so healthy, it’s considered a superfood. It’s also an active ingredient in Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®. Let’s talk about the history and benefits of green tea, and why it’s the perfect fit for our flagship product.
The history of green tea.
Green tea has been in use since 2737 B.C. While originally only available to the Chinese upper class as a refreshing beverage, green tea made its way to the general public in the 14th century. This is when its true health benefits first began to emerge. Ancient Chinese and Indian medicine used green tea to aid digestion, regulate temperature, and more.
Green tea eventually made its way to the West by way of European exploration during the 19th century before becoming Britain’s national beverage, along with black tea. Fun fact: green tea became so wildly popular when it reached the American Colonies, Great Britain ended up imposing a Tea Tax in 1776. And 45 tons of the stuff ended up in the Boston Harbor during the Boston Tea Party.
Green tea’s list of health benefits is almost as long as its history. It’s much more than a delicious beverage. For centuries people have used green tea to maintain body temperature and blood sugar levels already in a normal range, promote digestion, and support healthy mental process as well as cardiovascular health.* Here are a few other reasons green tea is so healthy and why we decided to include it as an active ingredient in Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®.
It’s loaded with polyphenols.
First off, green tea is chock full of bioactive ingredients, specifically polyphenols. In fact, the unfermented leaves green tea is made from reportedly contain the highest concentration of polyphenols around. These polyphenols including catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) deliver a wide range of health benefits including the ability to support a healthy inflammation response.
It’s good for the brain.
More research is pointing to the fact that green tea may also support cognitive function. Because green tea contains just enough caffeine to increase the firing of neurotransmitters without making you jittery, it can help improve mood and increase focus while supporting a healthy mood.
It supports cardiovascular health.
Green tea is considered a superfood because of all the antioxidants it contains. The antioxidants in green tea (catechins) are associated with maintaining existing normal cholesterol. Additionally, a diet rich in antioxidants is known to generally support cardiovascular health.
It’s the perfect ingredient for Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®.
Because the green tea extract we use for Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer® contains 95% polyphenols, its bioactivity level is extremely potent. In other words, we’ve formulated it to work right at the cellular level, so your body can take advantage of green tea’s many benefits.
Whether it’s a cup of hot tea or your daily dose of Protandim® Nrf2 Synergizer®, incorporating green tea into your life comes with a lot of health benefits. So make it a part of your everyday.
