One can read Dr. Jane Sadler promoting green tea in her recent column at The Dallas Morning News. In the column, “Drink (green tea) to your health,” Dr. Sadler recommends diluted green tea for curbing nausea.
Dr. Sadler writes that the antioxidants in green tea may help prevent inflammation that can cause organ damage and adversely affect immune systems. She notes that green tea contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a potent anti-oxidant. EGCG is the active ingredient in green tea thought to be helpful for alliviating stomach problems like vomiting and diarrhea, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and improving memory retention.
Dr. Sadler cautions her readers about potential contaminants in some imported green tea extracts. Taiyo’s Sunphenon and Matcha Powder are produced from pesticide compliant green tea to assure compliance with stringent U.S. FDA residual pesticide regulations for tea, as outlined in 40CFR180.
This fully compliant material is produced from pesticide controlled green tea leaf, extracted via a water infusion process and decaffeinated using only approved food grade solvents. No pesticides, chloroform or other illegal solvents are used in the processing of any Matcha Powder or Sunphenon extracts. More information on Taiyo’s strict quality control can be found here.
