Dosing of Green Tea Extract

Various research studies have repeatedly shown a decrease in chronic human diseases when regularly consuming polyphenolic rich foods and drinks such as green tea.  Polyphenols seem to disrupt the oxidation chain reactions at the cellular level and increases blood plasma antioxidant capabilities.  Daily consumption of antioxidants has been associated with reduced levels of oxidative damage to cellular DNA.  When decreasing cellular DNA oxidization it decreases the risk of various degenerative diseases associated with oxidative stress.  Oxidative stress is an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants in your body. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons. The uneven number allows them to easily react with other molecules and advance the aging process.

Physiology of Green Tea Extract

Green tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis L-plant, which is rich in polyphenol catechins and caffeine. There is a lot of interest in the potential role that green tea extract has in the metabolism of fats and its influence on health and exercise performance.  Several studies have shown positive results showing that fat is more efficiently metabolized both at rest and during exercise more efficiently.  The exact molecular signaling that activates changes to fat metabolism gene expression is unclear.  However, to date, evidence from human studies support better metabolism as well as improved health when consuming one to two cups of green tea or supplementing with green tea extract.
