What Is It?
EgCG, or epigallocatechin gallate, is the largest and most potent of several catechins that are present in green tea. The “gold standard” of green tea is Japanese Sencha, which contains about 150 mg of EgCG per cup. In just 3 capsules, Active Green Tea provides the equivalent of 10 cups of Sencha green tea, the amount research has shown to be associated with the greatest health benefits.
What Does It Do?
Primary Uses: The citizens of Japan boast the longest average lifespan in the world, and research shows that people consuming high amounts of Japanese sencha green tea live longer.
Secondary Uses: Extensive epidemiological evidence shows that people consuming high amounts of Japanese sencha green tea have fewer heart problems and liver disorders, healthier cholesterol levels, and are generally better protected from the most common afflictions today. Many people use green tea extracts for their metabolism-boosting effects.
Who Should Take It?
People who want powerful antioxidant protection, support for healthy cellular growth and differentiation, life-extentionists, and those who want the powerful benefits of green tea without having to consume up to 10 cups per day.
