Green Tea Extract:
Green tea extract is an active ingredient extracted from green tea leaves, mainly including tea polyphenols (catechins), caffeine, aromatic oil, water, minerals, pigments, carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, vitamins, etc. Tea polyphenols have the effects of anti-oxidation and scavenging free radicals, significantly reducing the contents of serum total cholesterol, triglycerides and low density lipoprotein cholesterol in hyperlipidemia, and restoring and protecting vascular endothelial function. EGCG is a catechin monomer isolated from tea and is the main component of tea polyphenol bioactivity.

EGCG is the most effective antioxidant polyphenol in green tea, which has antioxidant, anticancer and anti-mutation activities. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is at least 100 times that of vitamin C and 25 times that of vitamin E, which can protect against cell and DNA damage, which is believed to be linked to cancer, heart disease and other major diseases. These effects of EGCG are attributed to their ability to scavenge oxygen free radicals (antioxidant).
EGCG accounts for 10-15% of the total catechins in green tea, including EGCG, EGC, ECG, EC, ECG, etc., among which EGCG has the strongest antioxidant activity.
Many studies have shown that EGCG has anti-free radical DNA damage, anti-radiation and UV, prevent oil peroxidation, reduce the content of low density cholesterol, ultra-low density cholesterol and triglyceride in serum, interfere with the signal transmission required for cancer cell survival, inhibit carcinogens in the diet, and reduce the risk of cancer. Work with other enzymes and antioxidants in the intestines, liver, and lungs to block the activity of certain carcinogens, remove free radicals, combat the effects of pollution, sun exposure, and smoking, and prevent skin aging and wrinkling.
On the finished supplements market, Green Tea Extract EGCG can be purchased in tablet form, tincture, soft-gel, liquid, capsule and powdered form.
