Anti-aging Compound in Regulating the Life Span of Organisms.
Epicatechin was associated with a reduction in aortic vessel and liver degeneration, as well as less liver fat deposition.
Epicatechin can decreases the low density lipoprotein cholesterol, insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and markers of inflammation and increase the skeletal muscle function and liver antioxidant glutathione and superoxide dismutase activity
Improve Cognitive Function
Epicatechin can protect brain cells against the toxic actions of beta-amyloid.
Dietary intake of epicatechin-rich foods or supplements impact on the development and progression of cognitive function.
Inhibit the cellular damage
Epicatechin has insulin mimic action and improves heart health. Epicatechin exert a protective role on osmotic fragility of cells, similar to that of insulin.
Epicatechin can suppress the cell apoptosis by clearing the free radicals and then it will reduce the mitochondrial transmembrane potential to protect cells to increase the cell tolerance to oxidant.
