Green Tea Extract
Green Tea (Camillia sinensis) extract is a potent phytoflavonoid, with polyphenols, and antioxidant catechins, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and epigallocatechin (EGC).
This Green Tea extract has an additional 60mg of Vitamin C,
which is an immune enhancer and an anti-allergy
vitamin that detoxifies histamine in the body.
Allergy & Green Tea extract Researchers in Japan identified the EGCG compound in green tea that, in laboratory tests, blocks a key cell receptor involved in producing an allergic response.
It appears that the compound works by blocking the production of histamine and immunoglobulin E (IgE), which are chiefly involved in triggering and sustaining allergic reactions.
