TORONTO, Nov. 8 /CNW/ - Jamieson Laboratories, Canada's leading
manufacturer of natural health products, today introduced Green Tea
Phytosome(R) Complex, a powerful supplement based on the age-old, therapeutic
and medicinal properties of green tea.
Available in capsule form, Green Tea Phytosome Complex supports heart
health, serves as a weight loss aid and helps to prevent cell damage in the
body caused by substances known as free radicals. This is possible chiefly
because of the presence of GREENSELECT(TM), a caffeine-free extract made from
green tea leaves that is characterized by high levels of polyphenols, and
epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the most powerful antioxidant found in green
tea. Green Tea Phytosome Complex is also formulated using a soy phosphatidyl
choline complex, which greatly improves the absorption of its antioxidant
"Green tea's therapeutic benefits come from its powerful antioxidants,
called polyphenols," explained Michelle Ginsler, Registered Dietitian,
Jamieson Laboratories. "Green Tea Phytosome Complex is standardized to a
minimum of 50 percent EGCG, which is the most powerful antioxidant."
Green Tea Phytosome Complex supports heart health by preventing the
oxidation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Oxidized LDL
cholesterol can lead to the development of athersclerosis, a build-up of
arterial plaque that inhibits normal circulation of oxygenated blood to the
tissues. Green tea may also help reduce blood pressure, and it can inhibit
inflammatory processes that play a role in the development of cardiovascular
Green tea has also been found to be effective as a weight loss aid,
because of its ability to increase thermogenesis (caloric expenditure),
enhance fat metabolism (breakdown of fat for energy), and help regulate blood
In addition, green tea may help to support pancreatic, breast, and
colorectal health. The presence of antioxidants help to decrease cellular and
DNA damage caused by environmental toxins and free radicals that can result in
the stimulation and progression of cancer and other age-related illness such
as cardiovascular disease.
Like all Jamieson products, Jamieson Green Tea Phytosome Complex is
formulated from natural sources and is manufactured using Pharmasure 211(TM)
Biotechnology, a proprietary process of 211 pharmaceutical quality control
tests to guarantee full potency and absolute clinical purity of the superior
quality of this Jamieson product.
Green Tea Phytosome Complex is available at Canadian pharmacies and
retailers at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $8.99. Adults should
take one capsule daily or as directed by a health practitioner.
