Reaping the Benefits of Green Tea Extract

Tea may just be the most versatile beverage, on a cold winter's day just the thought of a cup of hot tea is enough to warm you. On a hot summer day spent working in the garden a glass of iced tea is a true thirst quencher. Even if you love the gentle lift and aromatic appeal of green tea, you probably enjoy knowing that it’s packed full of antioxidants too.

Green tea has been recognized for all kinds of healthy benefits†; the polyphenols—natural compounds in green tea—have been the subject of many scientific studies showing their antioxidant and immune support activity. Among these compounds, one specifically, EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), has been shown to support colon, breast, and prostate health.

As if that weren’t good news enough, green tea consumption is also associated with healthy heart support, and keeping the mitochondria—the “engines” of our cells—tuned up as well.

Of course, there are days when you can’t sit down to “tea time”. The next best (in some ways, better) thing is green tea extract, specifically Green Tea Elite with EGCG.

Green Tea Elite with EGCG takes green tea to the next level. It provides a strong, decaffeinated green tea extract that’s standardized for its EGCG content, and pairs it with phosphatidylcholine in a special process. Binding green tea extract to this special molecule increases it’s absorbability—it gets to the cells it needs to protect.

If you’re schedule or circumstance doesn’t allow for tea time, don’t sweat it—Green Tea Elite with EGCG can help you make sure you get the goodness of green tea in a convenient capsule any time of day.
