Green tea contains health-promoting polyphenols including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is about 25–100 times that of vitamins C and E.175 One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols176 and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.
One capsule of Life Extension’s Mega Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea. This 98% green tea extract (lightly caffeinated or decaffeinated) is standardized to provide high potency EGCG, by far the most important polyphenol green tea provides. And green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60%-90% better into the bloodstream177 and to be far more bioavailable than drinking green tea itself.
Green tea has been shown to provide many benefits including:
Scavenging reactive oxygen species such as superoxide and the hydroxyl and peroxyl radical178-182
Possibly promoting weight loss187-190
Boosting the effectiveness of enzymatic phase II detoxification191-197
Helping maintain healthy cell proliferation198-205
Helping maintain healthy blood cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels already within normal range206-211
Enhancing immune function212-219
Displaying protective effects on brain tissues220-222
This is the same premium-quality Mega Green Tea Extract but without caffeine.
This supplement should be taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Results may vary.
