Standardized green tea is one of the most versatile supplements in orthomolecular medicine therapy. Apart from its antioxidant effect, especially against peroxides, studies highlight its anticancer action. It is not surprising that there is a lower incidence of cancer in eastern countries where the consumption of green tea is common with all meals.
Perhaps one of its least known actions is its protective effect on polyunsaturated fats in the brain, where they are precisely in much more quantity than in the rest of the body. The danger is that these fats oxidize more easily because they are very unstable. If they oxidize, the damage that occurs to the brain can be irreversible. When the typical age spots appear on the skin, also called liver spots (lipofuscin), it is a sign of the oxidation of these fats and a remedy must be made before the brain is affected. The funny thing is that you can stop, stop or reverse the process by taking a standardized green tea supplement and, over time, the spots (the lesser evil) may disappear. Ideally, do not wait for the process to begin and take preventive measures.
The thermogenic effect of green tea can be useful in diets to lose weight. It can increase the metabolic activity of brown fat cells, in order to burn reserves more quickly.
During the spring months, green tea can be a great relief for people suffering from hay fever, since it is rich in flavonoids that inhibit the reactions involved in allergy symptoms.
