Green tea has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for a myriad of purposes (including to stimulate the heart, mind, nervous system, and digestion), and in India to treat fungal infections, but it can be a bit of an acquired taste, for some. A single capsule of this extract has the phytonutrient content of about 2 to 3 cups of green tea.
There are many compounds in green tea, including Polyphenols and Catechins, which provide potent antioxidant benefits; one Catechin in particular, EGCg (which this product is named for, since it makes up half the content of the caffeinated part), has demonstrated extraordinary free radical quenching power in laboratory studies. EGCg has also been shown to be able to help support healthy cell cycle regulation, in some non-clinical studies. Green tea or its extracts may also be a useful addition to a weight management program.
Each capsule contains:
400 mg Green Tea Extract (Camellia sinensis) (Leaf) (Contains 4 mg of Caffeine) [Standardized to contain 50% EGCg (Epigallocatechin Gallate) (200 mg)]
50 mg Decaffeinated Green Tea (Camellia sinensis) (Leaf)
