Flavonoids in Plants
Plants in general contain a group of compounds which chemists call flavonoids. Thousands of different flavonoids have been identified so far. These flavonoids have differing levels of antioxidant activity, some low while others are quite high.
A group of the most potent ones, called catechins, are found in green tea.
These catechins in green tea or in a concentrated extract of green tea (green tea extract), are very effective in destroying free radicals (also known as oxidants) and are thus termed anti-oxidants. Free radicals are created in every cell of the body as a consequence of energy production (production of ATP) and also created as a consequence of inflammation and of fatty acid metabolism.
