TEGREEN 97- polyphenol tea extract capsule NSE Products Inc., (Pharmanex)
Tegreen® is a standardized, decaffeinated polyphenol extract of fresh green tea leaves, with proven free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties.*
Studies have demonstrated that the polyphenols in green tea, particularly the catechin component, offer potent antioxidant activity through the scavenging of free radicals. More specifically, numerous experiments and studies indicate that green tea polyphenols, especially EGCg, may help block the formation of some potentially toxic compounds such as nitrosamines, suppress the activation of free radicals, detoxify or trap free radicals, inhibit spontaneous and photo-enhanced lipid peroxidation, and increase the activity of natural antioxidants and detoxifying enzymes (e.g., glutathione peroxidase and catalase).*
Antioxidant supplementation may also offer some protective benefits to the skin from free radical damage and the effects of ultraviolet rays. Among the polyphenols that are antioxidants in green tea, EGCg and ECG show the strongest effect in reducing collagenase activity—an enzyme that breaks down collagen.*
Additional third party research shows that green tea supplementation may help improve lipid and glucose metabolism, maintain normal insulin sensitivity, and support a healthy metabolic rate.*
Each capsule contains 250 mg of extract of green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) standardized to a minimum 97% pure polyphenols including 162 mg catechins, of which 95 mg is EGCg.
Take 1-2 capsules bid with water and food. Maximum recommended dose of 4 capsules daily (1,000 mg). Do not exceed 1,200 mg green tea extract in combination with other green tea-containing supplements.
