DESCRIPTION Green tea has been consumed in China for more than 5000 years. It is derived from the same
plant as black tea. Tea leaves are lightly steamed before being dried when making green tea;
a different process is used for making black tea. This inactivates the fermentation enzymes hence
no fermentation occurs like it does in black tea. Valuable polyphenols are oxidised during the fermentation process. It is known that especially unfermented green tea has a beneficial effect
on health. Green tea is rich in catechins (certain polyphenols) such as epicatechin, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin and epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCg). EGCg is considered to be the most powerful substance in green tea. These polyphenols appear to be primarily responsible for the health promoting effects of green tea. Green tea polyphenols protect against free radicals and support the maintenance of healthy
cells and tissues. They are also good for the liver function, especially the cleansing function of
the liver. Green tea extract supports the cardiovascular system; the green tea polyphenols are beneficial for blood pressure and it stimulates blood circulation. In addition, they help lower
the levels of cholesterol and support a proper lipid metabolism. The polyphenols in green tea
also support the pancreatic function (blood glucose levels).
Green tea extract from Bonusan is standardised at 50% polyphenols and 20% theanine. There
is much scientific interest for theanine because of the mental and physical relaxation it achieves. Theanine has a soothing effect, without causing drowsiness.
