ROS Nutrition uses TeaXcel ® P50 - finest quality solvent free Green tea extract is derived from the leaves of the camellia sinensis using proprietary extraction technology. Green Tea extract is a rich source of polyphenols, catechins and EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate). This simply means it is rich in antioxidant compounds which help to support your immune system and keep your body healthy.
Weight management: There is now a significant amount of research that not only supports the use of green tea for its health benefits but also for helping people to reduce body fat and lower unhealthy cholesterol. The exact mechanism of how this works is intricate but it is suggested to be due to a greater level of fat oxidation and thermogenesis which increases energy expenditure.
Antioxidants: Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that act as free radical scavengers that help to reduce damage to your body’s cells. Oxidative stress and the production of free radicals that damage the body’s cells are considered to be the main causes of aging and diseases like cancers and cardio vascular disease. Having a diet that is rich in antioxidants will help to keep your body strong and healthy.
