GREEN TEA EGCG capsules offer a convenient way to obtain the active constituents of Green Tea in a concentrated form. Green tea extract (GTE) supplies numerous bioactive compounds such as Polyphenols and Catechins including EGCG, that are known for their many health-supporting properties. These compounds have been found to help protect against oxidative stress and may also help to maintain a healthy inflammatory response – they are also used in weight management. GREEN TEA EGCG is over 3x more concentrated (in terms of EGCG percentage) than green tea powder, and each high potency capsule also provides the equivalent EGCG of up to 10 cups of typical green tea.

According to a 2008 study, green tea extract is the fourth most commonly used dietary supplement in the US; a simple Google search will turn up hundreds of brands that sell Green Tea Extract. Being as popular as it is, millions and millions of doses are enjoyed – with so much usage occurring, it also is an ingredient that carries some controversy as well. Experts recommend that if you decide to take Green Tea Extract that is high in EGCG, it is best to take with food - as with any natural health product or dietary supplement, read and follow the label including all warnings before use – and never exceed suggested dosage.
