Green tea (Camillia sinensis) contains health-promoting polyphenol compounds like epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful anti-aging phytonutrient that has been the subject of extensive scientific research. Our Mega Green Tea Extract provides more of these potent compounds than several cups of green tea in a once-daily, lightly caffeinated supplement.
Benefits at a Glance:
More facts about Mega Green Tea Extract
Green tea is packed with plant compounds called polyphenols, the most important of which is EGCG. EGCG possesses abundant health-promoting properties. It supports healthy cell reproduction, metabolic function, and cardiovascular health.1 EGCG also helps protect your liver, cognitive health, benefits your immune system, and helps promote a healthy body weight as well.1
Rich in polyphenols and other phytonutrients
An average cup of green tea contains about 150 mg to 300 mg of polyphenols. Each capsule of this supplement provides 725 mg of green tea extract, standardized to 98% polyphenols. That means you’d have to drink about 3 cups of green tea (if not more) to get the same amount of polyphenols as a single capsule of our Mega Green Tea extract.

Green tea polyphenols are capable of directly neutralizing destructive free radicals, and are also thought to boost the body’s own internal defenses against destructive free radicals. They’ve also been shown to inhibit the oxidative stress associated with inflammation.3,4
Cellular health support: Green tea supports healthy cellular proliferation.1 In fact, the green tea polyphenol EGCG has a remarkably broad array of cellular health benefits, exerting a positive influence on mitochondrial health, intracellular signaling pathways, intracellular messengers, transcription factors, healthy gene expression, and more.5
Cholesterol management: Green tea, green tea extracts, and EGCG can help maintain healthy blood cholesterol, LDL, and triglyceride levels already within the normal range.6-10
