I am so glad you have taken an interest in the Green Tea CR™ formula. As a Medicine Hunter, author and ethno-botanist, I have scoured the earth for decades searching for the most effective botanical ingredients to promote all aspects of human health. My Green Tea CR™ formula is the culmination of many years of investigative science and captures the power of 3 of my favorite ingredients... Green Tea, BCM-95 Curcumin and Resveratrol.
Green Tea Joins Forces with Resveratrol and BCM-95® Curcumin
In Green Tea CR™ you experience the power of the -- big three -- the energizing attributes of Green Tea joining forces with the joint boosting benefits of BCM-95® BioCurcumin® plus Resveratrol for healthy aging.* Along with these three featured nutraceuticals, Green Tea CR fortifies the body’s antioxidant defenses with Grape Seed extract, Pine Bark extract, Ellagic Acid, and Citrus Bioflavonoids. These ingredients support cardiovascular and circulatory health by helping to maintain healthy blood vessels.* BCM-95® BioCurcumin® rounds out this elite health-protecting formula with its unique benefits for joint comfort.*
Not only is Green Tea one of the world's most widely consumed botanicals, it is also one of the most beneficial. Green tea leaves contain natural compounds called polyphenols that have been researched in a multitude of studies published in scientific journals. Green tea polyphenols include a group of substances found tea called "catechins." One among these, EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) has demonstrated high antioxidant activity.
Here is just a partial list of the benefits of green tea supported by research studies:
Green Tea helps with healthy weight management by increasing daily energy expenditure, i.e. helps the body burn calories.*
Green Tea helps maintain already normal blood sugar levels when used as a part of a diet for healthy, sensible weight control.*
Green tea enhances the body’s antioxidant defense systems and protects cells against free radical damage, promoting optimal cellular function.*
Green tea supports a healthy cardiovascular system via its antioxidant action.*
Polyphenol Power for Cardiovascular Health and More*
The key active ingredients in Green Tea belong to a family of antioxidants called polyphenols, which provide effective, broad-spectrum health support for the organs, tissues and systems of the body.* Green tea polyphenols include EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which has demonstrated especially strong antioxidant activity.* Green Tea plus Resveratrol delivers a consistent intake of 82 mg EGCG per serving. Resveratrol, also classified as a polyphenol, is particularly beneficial for the cardiovascular system, as well as healthy brain function.* Grape Seed Extract and Pine Bark extract contain polyphenols called proanthocyanidins which are notably supportive for the circulatory system due to their scientifically-documented effect on the integrity of blood vessel tissue.* Citrus Bioflavonoids are yet another category of nutrients for healthy blood vessels.* In fact, when they were first discovered in the 1930s, the Nobel winning scientist credited with the discovery named bioflavonoids "Vitamin P". The "P" stood for "permeability", indicative of their ability to tighten up capillaries, the tiniest and most ubiquitous of blood vessels.
Renowned for its healthy aging properties, Resveratrol dynamically supports the health of the circulatory and cardiovascular systems, as well as supporting healthy energy levels, endurance and stamina.* First discovered in 1940, Resveratrol is a standout among phytonutrients-beneficial bio-molecules in plants-with more than 4,000 research studies describing its effects on physiology. Classified along with bioflavonoids as a "polyphenol", Resveratrol is a powerful antioxidant that outperforms many other plant-based flavonoids. Resveratrol boosts the function of enzymes in the body that help tamp down the impact of oxidative stress on tissues, which can elevate when free radicals build up to excess.*
Scientific investigation about Resveratrol’s importance for cardiovascular health has led to a deeper understanding of its extraordinary cellular effects. Resveratrol has been shown to interact with cell membrane receptors that maintain dynamic function of the cardiovascular system. Among its more significant actions, Resveratrol appears to support a key enzyme that stimulates production of nitric oxide in blood vessel linings. This in turn promotes relaxation of blood vessels and healthy circulation.*
BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® the Bioavailable, Absorbed Curcumin
Curcumin is a new rising star in the family of nutraceuticals validated by multiple trials and human clinical studies. Curcumin is actually a group of natural compounds called "curcuminoids" found in the roots of the popular spice commonly known as Turmeric. With historical use that stretches back over three centuries, Turmeric is prized in the Far East for its health benefits.
Curcumin has an impressive portfolio of studies demonstrating its benefits for healthy cells and joints.* But it does have one limitation: ordinary curcumin extracts are poorly absorbed, which means you need to take large amounts to achieve the results found in these studies. BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® solves the problem. The absorption and retention of BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® has been demonstrated in published human clinical trials to deliver superior bio-availability. The chart below compares absorption of BCM-95® Bio-Curcumin® to that of a commonly sold 95% curcumin extract, showing the sharp contract in bioavailability between the two.
As a cell-protecting botanical extract, Curcumin plays a vital role in promoting wellness by helping to support the body’s natural biochemistry that maintains healthy joint tissue comfort and function.*
