Green has been consumed since 2700 BC, and scientific research has documented numerous health benefits from its frequent consumption. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCg) is the primary active ingredient in green tea responsible for these health-promoting effects. While consuming green tea as a whole food may provide synergistic benefits through its constituent compounds, supplementation of tea polyphenols and EGCg may offer even greater benefits. This is because supplementation can provide the body with higher levels of these components than many individuals could obtain by simply drinking tea. Standardized extracts are especially useful, as they guarantee a potent amount of the desirable active component, ensuring quality and effectiveness.
An average cup of green tea contains 5 mg of dry green tea leaves, providing roughly 200 mg of EGCg. Our EGCg capsules contain 225 mg of decaffeinated green tea extract, standardized to 98% polyphenols, of which 45% is EGCg. Because this product has a high EGCg content and contains less than or equal to 0.5% caffeine and low fluoride levels, it’s a great choice to obtain this beneficial compound. By incorporating our EGCg supplement into your routine, you can enjoy all the health benefits of green tea without having to drink multiple cups a day!
