1+1 = 3

January 10, 2012

Full paper abstract and link can be found HERE:

Cardiovascular diseases, cancer, arthritis and similar are caused by free radicals produced by metabolic pathways.

Many plants like Cinnamomum cassia and Camellia sinensis Linn. have been researched with respect to their antioxidant properties and reported on this  blog extensively.

The researchers study was performed to corroborate the hypothesis that formulation of a poly-herbal combination shows a synergistic effect with green tea.

The research results suggest that a combination of all these herbs with green tea can synergistically enhance antioxidantactivity and thus lower doses of each herb with green tea may be used.

“Studies showed that individual herbs have significant amounts of phenolics and flavonoids and their polyherbal combination with green tea was found to produce best antioxidant activity among all individual extracts.”

We suspect that Ayurvedic doctors probably knew this before!
