What are Superfruit™ Green Teas?
March 23, 2010
Superfruit Teas are made from a base of the finest China green tea expertly blended with superfruits recognized for their superior antioxidant qualities, reported health benefits and vibrant flavors. Deeply pigmented fruits like pomegranates, black raspberries and açaí berries, not only have centuries of traditional use, but the support of modern science in their antioxidant qualities.
Antioxidants include vitamin C, vitamin E, carotenoids and many phytochemicals. Free radicals damage cells and DNA, increase cancer risk and accelerate the aging process. The more antioxidants, the more effective the neutralizing capacity is in slowing down the aging process. If free radicals go unchecked, they can even attack and damage DNA, possibly causing deformation and mutation of the blueprinted cells.* Studies suggest that people who eat more vegetables and fruits, which are rich sources of antioxidants, may have a lower risk for some types of cancer (source: American Cancer Society).
