Green tea is packed with plant compounds called polyphenols, the most well-characterized of which is EGCG. EGCG possesses abundant health-promoting properties. It supports healthy cell reproduction, metabolic function and cardiovascular health. EGCG also helps protect brain health, benefits immune system function and helps promote a healthy body weight.
Rich in polyphenols and other phytonutrients
An average cup of green tea contains about 150 mg to 300 mg of polyphenols. Each capsule of this supplement provides 725 mg of green tea extract, standardized to 98 percent polyphenols. That means you’d have to drink about 3 cups of green tea to get the same number of polyphenols as a single capsule of our Mega Green Tea extract.
Green tea health benefits
Protects against oxidation: Drinking green tea boosts the body’s oxidative stress defenses. Green tea polyphenols are capable of directly neutralizing destructive free radicals, and they are also thought to boost the body’s own internal defenses against destructive free radicals. They’ve also been shown to inhibit oxidative stress.
Cellular health support: Green tea supports healthy cellular proliferation. In fact, the green tea polyphenol EGCG has a remarkably broad array of cellular health benefits, exerting a positive influence on mitochondrial health, intracellular signaling pathways, intracellular messengers, transcription factors, healthy gene expression and more.
Cholesterol management: Green tea, green tea extracts and EGCG can help maintain already-healthy blood cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels.
Neuroprotection and Metabolic Health: Green tea and its polyphenols, including EGCG, help protect nerve cells and nerve function, have been shown to help preserve metabolic health, and help maintain already-healthy glucose levels.
