The millennial virtues of green tea

Press release   •   Mar 06, 2015 11:49 GMT

Green tea and its beneficial properties were already known in the East more than 2 thousand years ago.

This plant (Camellia sinensis) is indeed still appreciated and used in herbal medicine for its peculiarities:

  • antioxidant properties;
  • it favours drainage of body fluids;
  • it promotes maintenance of a balanced body weight;
  • tonic properties, useful for combating exhaustion and fatigue.

3 times less caffeine than black tea and a greater antioxidant power 

But what makes green tea so valuable?

The shoots and young leaves of this plant are rich in polyphenols and catechins, substances useful for their beneficial properties.

Green tea catechins, present in high amounts in the leaves of the plant (they represent 30-40% of dry weight), may indeed be useful in counteracting the action of free radicals and, consequently, protecting cells from oxidative stress.

Furthermore, against an antioxidant power 6 times greater than that of black tea, green tea contains 1/3 of caffeine.

For this reason, it is also suitable for those who are usually sensitive to this substance or are not used to consuming it.

It is said that the first to drink green tea by putting the plant's leaves to steep in a jug with boiling water was a Chinese emperor, back in 2700 BC.

Regardless of the veracity or not of this story, what is certain is that a Japanese Buddhist monk, Eisai, as far back as 1215 BC, wrote an interesting treatise dedicated to this plant entitled "How to stay healthy by drinking tea".

The ancient wisdom of the East was thus once again right.

Although it is not reasonable to expect miraculous results from green tea, it is nevertheless a valuable help for all-round well-being (always within a varied and balanced diet), right because of its recognised properties.

The Italian company has been trading since 1977, starting up as a simple herbalist's shop. Since then, it has earned the trust of tens-of-thousands of regular clients by working hard to deliver a top-notch products.

All food supplements are 100% natural (they do not contain parabens, mineral oils [paraffin oils], synthetic perfumes, and, where possible, preservatives) are produced and manufactured directly by the company in Italy to strict standards and have been notified to the Italian Ministry of Health.

The manufacturing techniques deployed by Dr Giorgini are ancient and groundbreaking at the same time, as they aim at preserving both the natural active ingredients, the core of our health and well-being, and the energy of life, a concept around which the whole company philosophy revolves. This to create a nutritional energy balance to stay healthy and fit, both physically and psychologically.
Starting from a selection of raw materials that, besides the usually required high quality standards, must not be exposed to radiations, and, continuing with the production chain, all those techniques that may reduce or destroy the energy of life still present in plants (e.g.: heat and pressure above the environmental range values, ultrasounds, microwaves, strong acids and bases ...) are accurately avoided. Thanks to this manufacturing technique, the energy of sunlight "fixed" into a plant by photosynthesis is saved and present in all Dr Giorgini products.

Dr Giorgini production unit, 500 m above sea level and out in the open, allows collecting water from rain and dew, to be then used in manufacturing processes, instead of the common deionised water, coming from waterworks and springs.
Besides food supplements, Dr Giorgini line also includes body, hair care, face and sun cosmetics, face and body cleansers, insect repellent and after-bite products, which are formulated using only top-quality ingredients and scented with only natural essential oils and contain no artificial fragrances.
