Research shows Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the polyphenol antioxidant with the broadest and most potent ability to protect your body’s cells from disease.
A University of Kansas study found EGCG to be 100x more effective than Vitamin C and 25x more effective than Vitamin E at strengthening our immune system and protecting cells from free radical damage and disease.
Green tea is considered the most predominant source of catechins among all dietary sources. And tea is known for its ability to stimulate the central nervous system and cardiac function in humans.
By keeping tea leaves in their most natural state (i.e. flash-freezing within hours of harvest) we’re able to preserve the maximum amount of EGCG antioxidants and associated health benefits.
Our patent-pending method delivers 5x EGCG antioxidants vs. a dried green tea made from the same leaves.
TEA is also an excellent source of the amino acid / caffeine regulator L-theanine. Not only is it effective at easing stress, promoting clarity and supporting a restful night’s sleep... Researchers say L-theanine aids in the production of germ-fighting compounds in your T-cells.
Tea leaves are rich in flavonoids, which increase antioxidant capacity in the blood. Free radicals, if not neutralized by antioxidants, can lead to disease.
There are hundreds of published studies in leading medical journals to support the importance of EGCG’s positive effect in the following areas:
There are researchers who call TEA “the fountain of youth” for skin cells. EGCG is show to reactivate dying skin cells, and shows potential benefits for skin conditions as diverse as, psoriasis, rosacea, wrinkles and wounds.
And while wellness professionals across the board agree there is no silver bullet when it comes to maintaining a healthy weight – it is a combination of diet, activity and mindset – studies suggest EGCG may be a powerful ally in boosting metabolism, energy levels, and shedding fat.
Scientists at the University of Chicago’s Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research found EGCG caused rats to lose up to 21 percent of their body weight. Rats injected with EGCG derived from green tea leaves lost their appetites and consumed up to 60 percent less food after seven days of daily injections.
