Organika’s Cholesterol combines phytosterols, oat extract, green tea and red yeast rice to synergistically combat high cholesterol levels, support heart health, reduce arterial plaques and improve blood flow.
Green tea has been consumed as one of Asia’s most popular health drinks for hundreds of years. Just like black tea, green tea is sourced from the Camellia sinensis leaves, but undergo different processing after harvest.
Green tea is chock-full of phytonutrients called polyphenols. Some of the best studied ones include:
Catechins like epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)
Flavonoids like quercetin
As the major polyphenolic compound in green tea, catechins are largely responsible for providing protective vascular properties. Catechins have been shown to inhibit oxidation as well, which also supports their effectiveness in improving cholesterol and cardiovascular health.
EGCG also acts as a thermogenic, which helps to stimulate metabolism and promote weight management. It can also help regulate blood sugar and therefore decrease cravings. These benefits, in combination with exercise and proper diet, also help to support obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight.
Clinical studies show that green tea extract offers a potent dose of antioxidants that help reduce oxidative damage to cells, tissues and DNA within the body.
Organika makes these health benefits available with a non-GMO and non-irradiated green tea leaf extract. Organika’s Green Tea Extract contains 95% polyphenols, 60% which are catechins including 50% EGCG to help improve overall health and weight management.
