Defense-Related Proteins and Camellia Sinensis Pollen
Recent laboratory research into Camellia Sinensis Pollen has uncovered some really exciting news about one of my all-time favorite foods: pollen from the tea plant--Camellia Sinensis. Slowly, more and more attention is being placed on Camellia Pollen, and for good reason, and every day we receive numerous e-mails from people telling us how much they love it too. We have been aware of the profound effects of this pollen for some time now, attributable to its bio-active growth hormones, specific anti-aging amino acids, and unparalleled nutritional profile.
In use, Camellia Sinensis Pollen has been shown to:
- Boosts hematopoiesis (red blood cell production);
- Relieves fatigue;
- Increases proper body detoxification;
- Strengthens memory and mental function (burns brain fog);
- Improves sleep quality;
- Improves Immune System Functioning;
- Anti-Aging effects on the skin;
- Restores healthy incretion of the Endocrine System (normal hormone production);
- Normalizes weight;
- Reverse Anemia;
- Maintain bone health and vitality;
- Generates a sense of satiety;
- Aids in the body's natural defense against cancer cells.
However, recent research published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information has identified several of the unique mechanisms which could account for the broad--and powerful--regenerative effects of Camellia Sinensis Pollen.
First, a little back-story. What many people do not realize is that the word protein in a catch-all phrase from literally thousands of different types of proteins, all with unique attributes. Some popular classes of proteins that you are probably already familiar with are Insulin like Growth Factor, Epidermal Growth Factor, and Immunoglobins. However, there is a class of proteins found in Camellia Sinensis Pollen that we all need to become best friends with: Defense-related Proteins. In humans, Defense-related Proteins strengthen the body against stress (environmental, lifestyle, mental and physical), and rebuild from the damage already caused by stress.
46 different types of Defense-related Proteins have been identified in fresh Camellia Sinensis Pollen. These select proteins uniquely in Camellia Sinensis Pollen dramatically improve:
- Energy metabolism;
- Cytoskeleton function (stronger cellular cytoplasm);
- Nucleic acid metabolism;
- Membrane transport;
- Amino acid metabolism;
- Stress response;
- Protein metabolism
- DNA and RNA transcription and reproduction;
- Fat metabolism.
While these effects have already been largely observed through use of Camellia Sinensis Pollen, it is always great to see research that supports what we already know. But possibly more important here is the uncovering of the mechanisms behind these actions: Defense-related Proteins. Even at our best, we are bombarded with stresses that are causing premature cellular degeneration, and Defense-related Proteins both help to protect against these stresses, and repair the damage that has been done.
