Green tea (Camellia sinensis) contains health-promoting polyphenolic compounds such as epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful anti-aging phytonutrient that has been the subject of extensive scientific research. Our Mega Green Tea Extract provides more of these powerful compounds than the equivalent of several cups of green tea in a lightly caffeinated supplement.
Each capsule of Mega Green Tea Extract provides 725 mg of green tea extract, standardized to 98% polyphenols.
Benefits of Mega green tea extract lightly caffeinated
Green tea is rich in plant compounds called polyphenols, the most characterized of which is EGCG. EGCG possesses abundant health benefits. It supports healthy cell reproduction, metabolic function, and cardiovascular health. EGCG also helps protect brain health, supports immune system function, and helps promote a healthy body weight.
Rich in polyphenols and other phytonutrients
An average cup of green tea contains 150 mg to 300 mg of polyphenols. Each capsule of this supplement provides 725 mg of green tea extract, standardized to 98% polyphenols. This means you should drink about 3 cups of green tea to get the same number of polyphenols as a single capsule of our Mega Green Tea extract.
Health benefits of green tea
Protects against oxidation: drinking green tea increases the body's oxidative stress defenses. Green tea polyphenols are able to directly neutralize destructive free radicals and are also thought to increase the body's internal defenses against destructive free radicals. They have also been shown to inhibit oxidative stress.
Support for cellular health: green tea supports healthy cell proliferation. Indeed, green tea polyphenol EGCG has a remarkably wide range of cellular health benefits, exerting 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 levels of blood cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides.
Neuroprotection and metabolic health: green tea and its polyphenols, including EGCG, have been shown to help protect nerve cells and nerve function, help preserve metabolic health, and help maintain already healthy glucose levels.
