Green tea benefits
Catechins that are contained in green tea are actively absorbed by the lens and retina of the eye, as a result of which oxidative stress in the eyes (the process of damage to cells due to their oxidation) is reduced by up to 20 hours. Hong Kong scientists have concluded that green tea may be promising in the prevention of glaucoma.
Studies in Slovenia have shown that green tea extract has antimicrobial activity.
Epigallocatechin gallate helps protect brain cells. Experience in mice at the Israeli University of Technology showed that this type of catechin fights Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease.
Epigallocatechin gallate has a laboratory-proven ability to inhibit the growth of cancer cells in prostate cancer. It, in combination with tamoxifen, suppresses the development of breast cancer (in vivo experiment, i.e. in a living organism was carried out in mice, in vitro experiment, i.e. in vitro - in human cells).
- Green tea reduces the risk of developing memory and attention disorders by 2 times.
- Green tea enhances human immunity and is also an energy stimulator (due to the active oxidation of fats).
