Green tea has been linked to preventing skin cancer, aging related issues and to prevent skin damage. Plant based polyphenols that are powerful as antioxidants help to protect your cells from damage and alter your DNA. Green tea contains concentrated polyphenols that are known as EGCG. Studies show that EGCG helps to prevent cancer and cell damage caused by free radicals and helps to reduce inflammation. Its protective power is much stronger than the protection provided by Vitamins A, C and E. EGCG related studies by the University of Georgia and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reveals that it delays cellular aging, stabilize sensitivity and protect the skin’s immune system. This is why Cellan contains 100 percent green tea extract to give the maximum power of EGCG.
