How Green Tea Extract is Used in Mountain Ice Joint and Bone Health Complex
Green tea extract, one of the key ingredients in Mountain Ice Joint & Bone Health Complex, is a powerful antioxidant renowned for its anti-inflammatory potential. Read on to learn how it promotes better joint health!
Green tea has numerous catechins, polyphenol compounds with strong antioxidant properties, the most common of which is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Found in high quantities in green tea, EGCG has been linked to reduced inflammation. This takes a number of pathways: for instance, EGCG helps to inhibit leukocyte migration, meaning that it prevents excessive amounts of white blood cells from reaching a site of inflammation. It also plays a part in reducing oxidative stress.
Reduced Oxidative Stress
Oxidative stress, the imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants, can cause cellular damage resulting in inflammation, sometimes even as a chronic condition. EGCG increases antioxidants which helps to balance out free radicals and reduce this damage.
EGCG's heart healthy properties can help boost your blood circulation, which will allow your body to deliver more oxygen and nutrients through the bloodstream. These nutrients are vital to repairing cell damage and preventing further harm, which helps to reduce inflammation. Effective circulation also makes it easier for the organs in your body to function properly, while strain from impaired functioning creates more inflammation.
Improved Wound Healing
Studies have indicated that green tea extract encourages faster wound healing by regulating cytokines and activating skin cells, boosting epithelialization (migration of cells to repair a wounded area) and angiogenesis (regrowth of blood vessels). Wound healing becomes more difficult as we age, and we begin to bruise more easily -- green tea can encourage faster healing from ordinary cuts and bruises!
Improved Skin Health
Green tea extract applied topically has been found to have positive effects on a number of inflammatory skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and eczema (atopic dermatitis).
Increased Fat Oxidation
EGCG is connected to an increase in fat oxidation, the breakdown of fatty acids, during physical activity. Fatty acids are converted into energy, so increased fat oxidation may boost energy. It also has positive effects on weight loss and combined with exercise may even improve insulin sensitivity in obesity, of interest to some diabetic neuropathy patients.
