WHAT IS GREEN TEA EXTRACT?
Green tea extract is obtained from the leaf of the plant Camellia Sinensis in such a way that prevents oxidation of the active polyphenolic compounds present in the plant, mainly catechins. Green tea is richer in antioxidants than other forms of tea for e.g there are more catechins in green tea than black tea.
