Green tea is loaded with health-promoting polyphenols, including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant. This antioxidant has been subjected to extensive scientific research, found to be much more potent than 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 is the equivalent of more than three cups of green tea. This 98% green tea extract is standardised to provide high antioxidant potency, using the most important polyphenol of green tea. Moreover, 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.Green tea has been shown to provide many benefits including:Scavenging reactive oxygen species such as superoxide and the hydroxyl and peroxyl radicalFluid-stabilising propertiesPossibly promoting weight lossBoosting the effectiveness of enzymatic phase II detoxificationHelping maintain healthy cell proliferationHelping maintain healthy blood cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels already within normal rangeEnhancing immune functionDisplaying protective effects on brain tissuesIngredientsAmount per servingGreen tea extract (leaf) [std. to 98% polyphenols by UV (710.5 mg), 45% EGCG by HPLC (326.25 mg)]- 725mgOther ingredients: vegetable cellulose (capsule), stearic acid, rice flour, silica.Directions For UseTake one capsule per day without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.Each serving contains approximately 25 mg of caffeine (the amount found in 2/3 cup brewed green tea).PrecautionsKeep out of reach of children.Do not exceed recommended daily dose.Do not purchase if outer seal is broken or damaged.If you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or lactating, please consult your medical practitioner first.A food supplement should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.
