In phytotherapy the leaves and buds of Green Tea can be used for slimming diets. The leaves have a lipolysis activity. The caffeine content promotes draining of the fat outside the adipose tissue (fatty cells), by enzymatic stimulation: the triglycerides that are stored are then mobilised as free soluble fatty acids and are easily eliminated by the body. The polyphenol content in green tea permits a progressive liberation of the caffeine, avoiding sleep and nervous problems, and can also decrease the assimilation of food carbohydrates and lipids, so it limits calorie intake. Increases thermogenesis.
Unique Freeze- grinding process
In order to extract the best from each plant with all of it’s active ingredients intact, Arkopharma uses a hi-tech process known as freeze-grinding.
This process consists of powdering the active part of the dried plant by cold-crushing it in liquid nitrogen at -196 degrees. This produces a perfectly fine, homogeneous powder – the whole plant powder or plant totum.
Why is cold used? Studies have shown that heat and oxidation occur during standard grinding procedures which can cause deterioration of vitamins, enzymes, volatile substances and many active principles.
Therefore the plant totum obtained by freeze-grinding contains not only the whole of the active principles but also the plant constituents that act synergistically to provide greater efficacy.
All Arkocaps capsules, therefore, consist of whole powder in order to bring you all of the plant components fully intact.
