Ten Benefits of Green Tea Extract

One of our main ingredients in élever+ is green tea extract, a common energy source and health supplement with numerous benefits. 

Well, what is green tea extract? 

Green tea extract is a highly concentrated source of the tea and particularly its antioxidants. The antioxidants are well known for their roles in a range of health benefits; from promoting heart, liver, and brain health to improving your skin and as some say, even reducing the risk of cancer.

Green tea may also effectively reduce inflammation and chronic pain and shorten exercise recovery times. Green tea has been praised as an herbal medicine for centuries. Consider adding it to your daily routine to reap the benefits! 

Here are ten of the key benefits of famous extract: 

  1. Rich in Antioxidants
    Green tea contains highly concentrated levels of antioxidants, which fight free radicals and protect your body from disease. In particular, green tea extract is rich in polyphenol antioxidants, or catechins, which have been known to increase the body’s antioxidant levels. 

  2. Can Assist with Weight Loss
    Because green tea has such strong anti-inflammatory properties, it may relieve symptoms of a variety of inflammatory diseases and by reducing inflammation in the muscles and connective tissues, green tea extract may also help ease general chronic pain.

  3. May Improve Skin Conditions
    Green tea extract also has proven dermatological benefits. When applied topically, green tea extract can treat a number of common skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, alopecia, warts and others. It may improve signs of aging caused by sun damage.

  4. Promote Heart-Health
    Green tea may improve your cardiovascular health by reducing your blood pressure. It also helps reduce inflammation and cholesterol buildups in the bloodstream, preventing cardiovascular illnesses.

  5. Cognitive Support
    Green tea extract may protect the brain from neurological conditions and has also been shown to help improve brain function by supporting memory and task performance.

  6. Workout Recovery
    During workouts, your muscle cells undergo damage, which makes them feel tired and sore. But green tea may help: a study published in the journal Physiology and Behavior in 2018 found that green tea reduced markers of cellular damage in muscles after workouts. When consumed routinely, green tea may even improve exercise performance.

  7. Immune Support
    If you come down with chronic colds, try adding green tea to your diet; it could boost your immune function to help your body fight off infection.

  8. May Benefit Liver Function
    The catechins in green tea extract may also help reduce inflammation caused by some liver diseases, such as nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, with that being said, it’s important to have your liver functions tested regularly, because excessive amounts of green tea have been shown to be harmful to the liver.

  9. May Help Lower Blood Sugar
    The extract has been shown to enhance insulin sensitivity and regulate the production of blood sugar, both of which can lower blood sugar levels.

  10. Easy to Add to Your Diet
    Green tea extract is available in liquid, powder, and capsule forms, just like the dose in élever+, which makes it an easy additive to your diet. You can include the powder or liquid extract right it in your smoothies, coffee or tea or keep it simple and consume the capsule form.
