One capsule of Protocol For Life Balance EGCg contains the equivalent amount of the catechin EGCg as approximately 2-3 cups of green tea. Green tea has been used in ancient China since at least 2700 BC. The traditional Chinese herbal system continues to use green tea to support a number of health concerns.
The active ingredients in green tea are a family of polyphenols. The primary catechin in one polyphenol family is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg). This polyphenol in particular is believed to be responsible for a number of green tea's health benefits. EGCg is known to have strong antioxidant properties, which can help to support the healthy function of vascular tissues and genetic integrity. Health Functions:
