All About Phytoestrogens: 

There is still much confusion over the use of phytoestrogenic herbs.  Many people misunderstand them, thinking that they are harming themselves when using herbs that are rich in these nutrients. 

Nothing could be further from the truth.
 

While the research gets rather technical and hard to read, good news on these nutrients continues to accumulate indicating that they improve the entire reproductive system and help to prevent breast and ovarian cancer. 

Phytoestrogens. What they are: Plant hormones similar to but weaker than human estrogens that are believed to reduce the risk of breast and prostate cancer; also to minimize the mood swings and hot flashes associated with menopause. Some medical researchers believe that phytoestrogens may one day supplant current estrogen-replacement therapy; unlike estrogen, their downside is nil.  From THE NUTRITION BIBLE, Jean Anderson and Barbara Deskins.

Avoid Complicated Formulas.  “These are the "kitchen sink" supplements, products that have as many as 20 herbs in a tablet or capsule. It''''''''s hard enough to get an active does of one herb into a single tablet or capsule, much less 20 active doses of 20 different herbs. Bottom line: They just don''''''''t work.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Full medicinal strength in an alcohol-free extract. Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation Bio-Chelation describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant''''''''s constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).

Scam Alert!  Don't Be Fooled.

     Many product review sites on the internet are nothing more than clever advertising.  They claim to have researched many products to find the best, but, in reality, they have only set up the site to rate their products in the number one position.   Worse yet, many of the companies that set up these deceptive web sites are poorly rated by the Better Business Bureau.   They operate their businesses by offering a "Free Trial- 100% Guaranteed", then start sending a monthly supply at highly inflated prices and charging your credit card.  And, just try to get them to stop!
 
You can protect yourself by checking out the companies with the BBB, and by looking to see if the site states that it is simply a paid advertisement, though some of the shadier companies don't even bother with this minor legality.  
 
This practice is most common with the latest fad products such as Acai berry and Pueraria mirifica.  The prices are high and the companies can make a small fortune before they are hounded out of business by the FTC.  What they are really selling are ordinary herbs that have some benefits, but that are easily replaceable with common herbs that are less expensive and have more solid research.

Green Tea Extract: Better Than Sunscreen? 
The health benefits of drinking green tea have become well known through positive research over the past twenty years.  Its anti-oxidant elements, cancer prevention, metabolism boost and weight-loss effects have been touted everywhere from medical journals to the Oprah Winfrey show.  But, rubbing it on your skin?

Yes.  Recent research (A) has shown that topical application of green tea extract can protect you from the damaging effects of the sun and prevent, or even reverse the skin damage that can lead to aging, wrinkles, spots and skin cancer.  And it won''t turn you green in the process. 

The Science: SPF and Broad Spectrum Ultra-violet Sunlight.   

The sun protective factor (SPF) used by the FDA in rating sunscreen measures only ultraviolet B protection.  Ultraviolet A, a more deeply penetrating and potentially damaging light, is not a factor in the rating.  The FDA has admitted to this flaw in the rating but, to date, has done nothing to correct it.  Adding green tea extract to your sunscreen can protect you in this "broad spectrum" of UV light. 

There are several factors that contribute to the damaging effects of the sun''s ultraviolet radiation on the skin.   As the broad spectrum light penetrates deeply into the skin it causes DNA damage and suppresses the skins natural immune system function.  This results in inflammation and oxidation and produces a perfect environment for cancer cells to develop.  Studies have shown that epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, contained in green tea, can protect against DNA damage and may significantly reduce the occurrence of skin cancer. (B)

Green tea extract can be added to sunscreen to expand protection before sun exposure.  It has also been shown to be beneficial when applied after sun exposure.   So even if you have already suffered, sunburn green tea extract can help to reverse the damage. (C) 

 

Additional Benefit: Making your Skin Young Again  

Green tea extract can repair and reverse sun damage, but for aging baby boomers there is an even more appealing benefit.  It can rebuild the support tissue of the skin, reducing wrinkles and making the skin more supple and smooth. 

In the supporting structure of the skin there are cells called keratinocytes.  These cells make up 90% of the epidermis.  Green tea extract protects these cell and makes them more robust leading to an increase in skin thickness.  This thickening leads to fewer wrinkles and more youthful-looking skin.  Simply from adding a few drops of green tea extract to some lotion you could take years off your skin appearance. (D) 

 

Usage Recommendations.

Before sun exposure:  add ½ ml of 1:1 strength alcohol-free green tea extract to your sunblock and apply as usual. 

After sun exposure:  add ½ ml of 1:1 strength alcohol-free green tea extract to aloe vera based lotion and apply to areas exposed to the sun.

More On Green Tea Extract: Research and Uses
Green Tea Benefits: Fighting Cancer, Preventing Cancer, Lowering Cholesterol, Preventing Heart Disease, Aiding in Weight Loss, Metabolism, Fat Oxidation, Boosting Oral Hygiene.

Green Tea Research:

Metabolism and Fat Burning: The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition conducted a study in which it was found that green tea extract significantly increased energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), and fat oxidation. The researchers felt that this study had wonderful implications for weight control. The study indicated a nearly 40% increase in daytime thermogenesis. In other words, dieters would burn 40% more fat during the day with Green Tea Extract. Is it possible that this is one of the reasons for lower obesity levels in areas of the world where more green tea is consumed?

Cancer Prevention: The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) conference in Phoenix recently produced some startling news on the cancer prevention and treatment front. And it wasn''t about new cancer drugs. It was about common green tea. Four scientific studies presented at the conference showed that green tea has the ability to prevent gene damage associated with the onset of cancer, and to retard the growth of cancer cells once the cancer has started. Researchers agreed that 2 to 4 cups of green tea per day showed significant effects against lung, prostate, liver and esophageal cancer, among others, and could prevent cell damage caused by cigarette smoke. In addition, green tea has been shown to lower cholesterol, prevent heart disease, aid in weight loss and help with oral hygiene.
