Baahtcha stores a wealth of natural antioxidants and polyphenols. Antioxidants are nothing short of super nutrients and catalysts that help fight against the negative effects of ultraviolet radiation on the skin. With an anti-aging effect, Baahtcha’s antioxidants provide the skin with a younger, smoother feel. A cup of Baahtcha provides over five (5) times as many antioxidants as any other food.
In comparison with other green teas, Baahtcha contains the highest amount of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant with numerous health benefits. Some studies, which have been supported by the American Institute for Cancer Research, support the fact that EGCG inhibits enzymes required for cancer cell growth, as well as destroys cancer cells without affecting healthy cells. These antioxidants found in Baahtcha seek out oxygen free radicals in the body and neutralize their harmful effects. This, in turn, protects our body from experiencing several disorders or inflammations that accompany oxidative stress.
