Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCP) has the antioxiant activity about 25–100 times that of vitamins C and E. One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.
One capsule of Life Extension's Mega Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea. This 98% green tea extract (lightly caffeinated) is standardized to provide high potency EGCG, by far the most important polyphenol green tea provides. And green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60%-90% better into the bloodstream and to be far more bioavailable than drinking green tea itself.
Mega Green Tea Extract has been concentrated and dual standardized to ensure the highest quality, consistency and biological activity. This advanced extract contains 98% total polyphenols and 45% epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).
Life Extension's advanced green tea extract is now enhanced with the polyphenol chlorogenic acid from CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract. CoffeeGenic Green Coffee Extract is produced through a patented extraction process to deliver an extraordinarily high proportion of chlorogenic acid for maximum potency.
- Take one capsule twice daily before the two heaviest meals, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
- Each serving contains approximately 15 mg of caffeine (the amount found in 1/3 cup brewed green tea).
