Slows the onset of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
A recent report published in the journal Phytomedicine has found substantial evidence that the enzymes found in green tea protect your brain cells from damage. Another study conducted by the University of South Florida looked at the effects of antioxidant EGCG. It was shown to be a protein blocker which prevented the chemical reactions that can lead to nerve damage that can lead to Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
I have also read that a paper was presented at a conference in Washingaton in 2007 which stated that Green Tea may help rescue damaged neurons in the brain (neurorescue or neurorestoration).
I have Green Tea Extract tablets but will switch to the pure EGCG. The fact that it _may_ help in fighting the Big C and _may_ also help cardiovascular health is a bonus.
