While there are many products to choose from to help your brain from a preventative medicine perspective, I would like to draw your attention to Active Green Tea.

AOR04067-Active-Green-TeaRecent research out of the University of Michigan has shown that the active ingredient in green tea interferes with the amyloid plaque formation in the brain which is associated with Alzheimer’s disease.   Specifically, the molecule known as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), both prevented plaque formations in the brain and broke down existing aggregates in the proteins that contained metals such as copper, iron and zinc.

Green tea has long been touted as an anti-aging beverage, with the active ingredient EGCG being used in benefiting a number of conditions including:

  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)
  • Recurrent infections
  • Stress management
  • Metabolism/weight management

While it has been shown that green tea consumption is beneficial for health, it may require several cups (8-10) a day to get a therapeutic dose of this active ingredient (800-1600 mg). That is why a product like Active Green Tea becomes favorable, rather than drinking that many cups of tea. Each capsule contains 700 mg of green tea extract, with EGCG totals at 455 mg. Basically, this is the equivalent of 3 cups of green tea. Thus, a dosage of 3 capsules per day meets a recommended therapeutic dose range.

DementiaAccording to Health Canada, in January of last year, it was estimated that over 500,000 Canadians were dealing with the affects of Alzheimer’s disease and associated dementia. The report then went on to state that the incidence rates are estimated to double within the next generation. Very sobering statistics to say the least!

So in honor of brain awareness week and preventative medicine for staving off dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, I suggest you consume green tea as a beverage in addition to considering Active Green Tea for its accurate delivery of this very important EGCG molecule.
