Green Tea catechins: defensive role in Heart and Vascular disorders

July 14, 2013

Green tea, Camellia sinensis is a key base ingredient for The Wise Herb Company range of products. We use organic Green Tea in all our healthy herbal infusions.

In previous studies Green Tea has been shown to be a major source of flavonoids which have been shown to have multiple cardiovascular health benefits through various experimental and clinical studies.

 

A review of clinical experiments by Bhardwaj & Khanna suggest that green tea catechins prevent the incidence of detrimental cardiovascular disease, and also lower the cardiovascular mortality rate.

 

Polyphenolics such as Catechins can prevent atherosclerosis, hypertension, endothelial dysfunction, ischemic heart diseases, cardiomyopathy, cardiac hypertrophy and congestive heart failure by:

decreasing oxidative stress, preventing inflammatory events, reducing platelet aggregation and halting the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells.

The review suggests that catechins could protect vascular endothelial cells and enhance vascular integrity and regulate blood pressure.
