An increasing number of scientists recognize the critical need to protect the arterial wall against low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation and inflammatory insults. Research has shown that unique compounds present in black tea called theaflavins and thearubigins can have multiple applications for arterial health.381-383
Theaflavin Standardized Extract contains a number of beneficial flavonoids found naturally in tea leaves that help support levels of cholesterol that are already within the normal range.384-389
Theaflavins have been shown in human studies to protect against LDL oxidation and favorably affect endothelial function,389-391 thus helping to maintain healthy circulation.
Scientists have also found that black tea flavonoids possess strong antioxidant properties, which can help mitigate oxidative damage to cells and tissues from free radicals.392-395 In addition, theaflavins have been found to be helpful in regulating key inflammatory mediators in the body, thus helping to preserve cellular integrity.396-399

Comments about Life Extension Theaflavins Standardized Extract, 30 vegetarian capsules:
Orignally tried this product after reading in the Life Extension magazine about the potential benefits of taking it. Since I am managing a glucose problem (TypeII) without medication, I tested this product with my glucometer, and it indicated that it lowered my glucose level significantly. That is the main reason that I continue to use it daily.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
