EGCG-50+ decaffeinated green tea extract with complex of catechins
Green tea contains the highest percentage of polyphenols of all teas. These polyphenols consist of 6 different catechins. The most important are; epicatechin, epicatechin-3-gallate, epigallocatechin and mainly epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). EGCG is the most active polyphenol in green tea and the most studied.
Green tea helps protect cells and tissues from oxidative damage1.
The combination of EGCG with other catechins enhances the protective effect1 of green tea.
EGCG-50+ is almost fully decaffinated (one capsule contains ≤ 1 mg of caffein).
