Green Tea Extract, by Seeking Health, contains significantly higher amounts of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the most active catechin, compared to most green tea extracts.
Green tea polyphenols are potent antioxidants that support healthy inflammatory processes.* At 95% polyphenols, Green Tea Extract by Seeking Health has almost twice the typical catechin content per capsule of products listing 50% total catechin (polyphenols) and specifies the amount of EGCG.
Green Tea Extract capsules provide a reliable, concentrated source of specific beneficial, active compounds that occur naturally in the green tea plant. Green, black, and oolong tea are all derived from the same plant, Camellia sinensis. Each has somewhat different characteristics depending on how the leaves are prepared. Green tea, unlike black and oolong tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. Green Tea Extract supplies significant amounts of catechin polyphenols, natural compounds in tea that provide antioxidant protection, healthy energy expenditure, and promote fat oxidation. Green Tea Extract may assist with weight maintenance as part of a healthy diet and exercise plan.*
- Extra Potent Extract: Green tea contains several natural, bioactive substances well recognized for their potential health benefits, including important polyphenol compounds. Catechins are the most abundant class of polyphenols in tea. The principle and most active catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Other constituents of green tea include L-theanine, caffeine, tannins, and theaflavins. Green Tea Extract contains significantly higher amounts of EGCG compared to most green tea extracts. It provides 95% polyphenol content supplying 40% catechins as EGCG.
- Weight Management Support: Several studies have suggested a role for green tea extract in supporting normal weight control. Studies using green tea extract have found it can help maintain healthy calorie intake, weight, and fat ratio.* Green tea extract has been shown to support healthy energy expenditure and fat oxidation to an extent that is much greater than can be attributed to its individual components, indicating its effects may be due to a synergistic interaction of catechin polyphenols, caffeine, and L-theanine.*
- Antioxidant Benefit: Green tea polyphenols are potent antioxidants that support healthy inflammatory processes.* They enhance antioxidant enzyme activities as well as inhibit membrane lipid peroxidation. Their antioxidant potential is related to their ability of the hydroxyl groups to bind and neutralize free radicals.
Green tea polyphenols also inhibit the production of arachidonic acid metabolites such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes, resulting in a positive inflammatory response.*
