The polyphenols contained in the Body Attack Green Tea Extract are known for their antioxidant property.
Green tea extract is one of the premium dry extracts from the leaves of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) - and is rich in the ingredient polyphenols. This plant material is as important for our health as vitamins. Since polyphenols occur mostly in fruits and vegetables, the Body Attack Green Tea Extract Capsules can be a helpful supplement to an unstable and unbalanced diet. The Asians drank green tea as a refreshing drink even thousands of years ago. Usually loose dried tea leaves were used for the preparation, as they contained the highest amount of polyphenols.
The Green Tea Extract Capsules from Body Attack deliver 1,050 mg of green tea extract per serving (3 capsules) with 84 mg caffeine.
The Green Tea Extract capsules may also be used as a high-quality alternative by all those who want to give up the pleasure of coffee beans – e.g. shift workers, students in examination phases or athletes.
What are the other active substances in the Body Attack Green Tea Extract Capsules?
60 mg ascorbic acid is also added to the Body Attack Green Tea Extract. Ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin that is active in the body as a powerful antioxidant. It helps protect our body cells in e.g. blood vessels, muscle fibres, skin and tendons from oxidative stress. Moreover, ascorbic acid can recover the Vitamin E rendered inactive by free radicals. Ascorbic acid has another important function: it is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as epinephrine and norepinephrine, which can help reduce tiredness and fatigue.
Worth knowing: What are polyphenols and how do they act?
The polyphenols in green tea are the so-called phytochemicals, which are primarily known for their antioxidant activity. This is because they have the ability to trap free radicals and thereby protect cells from antioxidative stress.
