New Study On Green Tea and Antioxidants

University of Arizona

[Zhi Tea, Jan 14, 2008]

A brand new study confirming earlier research as to the antioxidant properties of green tea is met with enthusiasm by tea drinkers and health afficionados the world over.

Researchers at the University of Arizona confirmed in a controlled study that participants given caffeine-free green tea extracts increased the production of detoxification enzymes known as glutathione S-transferase (GST) in the body.

GST enzymes are the critical link in helping the body defend itself against toxic free-radicals in the body caused by environmental or genetic conditions. This mechanism is proven to be effective in halting certain cancers and heart disease.

The 42 participants were given 4 capsules of green tea extract every morning for a month. GST levels in all participants was elevated including an 80 percent rise in people with the lowest levels to begin the study.

This confirms earlier studies and will surely prompt even more research along these lines.
