Independent daily use of EGCG SAP supplies the body with potent antioxidants to improve whole body antioxidant status and contribute to amelioration of chronic disease processes such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Green tea EGCG is also expected to contribute to increased thermogenesis.
Green tea (70% EGCG) (Camellia Sinensis)-500mg
Multi-anthocyanidins 20% (whole berry and fruit extracts)-150mg
Lycopene 10% (whole tomato oleoresin extract)-50mg
Consuming green tea has been associated with lowered risk of several types of human cancers and cardiovascular disease risk. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a potent natural antioxidant, is the major chemopreventive agent in green tea. Evidence also suggests green tea extract and EGCG contribute to weight loss through increased fat oxidation and caloric expenditure. Anthocyanidins are colourful antioxidant compounds in high concentrations in fruits and berries that protect against oxidative stress and maintain DNA integrity. Anthocyanidins also act as anti-inflammatory and anti-mutagenic agents, and by helping maintain vascular permeability offer cardioprotection. In humans trials, supplementation with lycopene, a potent carotenoid antioxidant, has improved blood pressure, lipid peroxidation, LDL cholesterol oxidation, protein oxidation and symptoms of prostate cancer.
30 capsules, 60 capsules
1 capsule daily.
1 capsule provides 350mg of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), 30mg of multi-anthocyanidins, 5mg of lycopene and <2.5mg of caffeine.
Worning: Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing
Green tea and green tea extract have not been associated with having adverse effects in multiple toxicological tests. However, tannins and polyphenols in green and/or black tea may interfere with absorption of calcium, iron and zinc but increase that of manganese and copper. It is not recommended that green tea extract be consumed by pregnant or nursing mothers. Anthocyanidins from berries and fruits are widely consumed and considered non-toxic and safe for human consumption. Lycopene from natural tomato oleoresin extract has generally recognized as safe (GRAS) status with the US FDA.
