Product Notes:

Green tea is no ordinary beverage. It has a long history in traditional medicine in China and India for the digestive, cardiovascular, and cognitive/nervous systems, and for fungal infections. It has many phytonutrients, including some with great antioxidant properties (which were there to protect the plant) - particularly EGCg (which is, a catechin: a type of flavonoid). Of course, one would have to drink a lot of green tea to reap all its benefits, but frankly, that's not everyone's cup of tea. Protocol for Life Balance's High Potency EGCg capsules ensures you can easily reap the benefits of green tea, without having to drink all that tea.

Over the past decade, epigallo-catechin-3-gallate (EGCg) has received major attention due to its numerous health benefits for conditions including neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, and inflammatory diseases. In laboratory studies, EGCg has demonstrated strong antioxidant activity and an ability to interfere with pathways associated with pathological conditions where inflammation is the major factor. Recent studies have also demonstrated EGCg to be potentially beneficial in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by inhibiting inflammatory protein gene expression in cartilage.
