- Supports Increased Metabolism*
- Contains Health-Promoting Polyphenols*
- Contains EGCG -- 25-100x More than Vitamins C & E*
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. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is about 25–100 times that of vitamins C and E. One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols337 and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.*
How Does Nature's Lab Green Tea Extract Benefit Me?
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 loss.* 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 so you burn more calories.*
Green tea extract is concentrated from the tea plant, Camellia sinensis, a species of evergreen shrubs native to Asia. Regarded as a powerful antioxidant and containing high levels of polyphenols, green tea extract may help increase metabolism.*

Green Tea Extract contains the polyphenol epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research and is considered an important polyphenol in green tea.* The health-promoting antioxidant activity of EGCG is approximately 25–100 times that of vitamins C and E and 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 and may have antioxidative effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.* 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.*
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 burn more calories.*
