Benefits of Green Tea Extract
Nature’s Lab Green Tea Extract contains polyphenols, including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research. One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.*
One capsule of Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea. Nature’s Lab Green Tea Extract is standardized to provide high potency EGCG, the most important polyphenol green tea provides. Green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60%-90% better into the bloodstream and to be far more bioavailable than drinking green tea itself.* Scientists have also discovered that the catechins in green tea are a powerful metabolism booster to support weight management.* The reason is that EGCG, which is the most abundant catechin in green tea, inhibits the enzyme that breaks down norepinephrine.* In plain English this means it keeps norepinephrine around in your system longer, keeping your metabolism rate up.* Green tea extract is concentrated from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, a species of evergreen shrubs native to Asia.
Green Tea Extract & EGCG
Green Tea Extract contains the polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant which has been the subject of scientific research and is considered an important polyphenol in green tea.* The health-promoting activity of EGCG may help the body fight oxidative stress.* Nature’s Lab Green Tea Extract is standardized to provide high potency EGCG.
One cup of traditional green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols. One capsule of Nature’s Lab Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea.* Powdered green tea extracts are also considered a more bioavailable source of polyphenols, with absorbency levels ranging from 60%-90% higher than drinking traditional green tea.*
Green Tea Extract & Metabolism
The EGCG found in green tea extract may help inhibit the enzyme that breaks down norepinephrine, a naturally-occurring hormone and neurotransmitter responsible for signaling the fat cells to break down fat.* When this enzyme is inhibited, the amount of norepinephrine in the body increases, breaking down more fat for use as energy by cells that need it.* This increase in energy may correlate to increased metabolic rates, causing the body to have the potential to use energy more efficiently.*
