Green Tea Extract and Cardiovascular Disease

Imagine the size of the headlines if a pharmaceutical were found to reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure, lower LDL (“bad”) cholesterol, and enhance the body’s antioxidant capacity. Now imagine that this new drug can work in as little as three week. It would be the most prescribed drug on the market.

Well, you don’t have to go to your doctor to get this magic medication. A recent study has found that green tea extract has all these benefits. And with cardiovascular disease as the number one killer in the country, news like this could dramatically reduce the number of people dying of this disease.

Green tea extract has already been shown to have a number of other benefits, including everything from aiding weight loss to helping prevent cancer. This latest study just provides more evidence for the ways natural therapies can lower disease risks and improve health.

Naturopathic medicine focuses on health promotion rather than disease management.
