Green tea contains potent antioxidant catechins and polyphenols that help prevent inflammation, cancer, heart disease and other chronic diseases. Now research reports that a green tea polyphenol extract may one of the most powerful free radical scavengers. It found that the extract can help protect cells from DNA induced radiation damage. Antioxidants such as those found in green tea neutralize harmful free radicals (toxic byproducts of metabolic functions) and protect against oxidative damage The study, published in the Journal of Food Biochemistry, investigated the effect of green tea extract on free radicals and singlet oxygen. Researchers from the University Annamalal, India, treated free radicals including hydroxyl radicals, superoxide, nitric oxide and singlet oxygen with sunephon, a green tea polyphenol extract. The scientists compared sunephon’s free radical scavenging effects with a standard thiocyannate anion. The researchers found that the green tea extract contained 75 to 80 percent green tea polyphenols. Furthermore, the extract scavenged potent free radicals and decreased the lifetime of singlet oxygen from 64 to 21 microseconds
