EGCG Green Tea Extract EGCG Green Tea Extract

Now Foods EGCg Green Tea Extract is a dietary supplement containing an extremely powerful extract from green tea leaves standardized on the content of minimum 98% of bioactive polyphenols, 80%of  catechins and up to 50% of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The product contains a negligible amount of caffeine. One capsule of this product is an equivalent of three cups of green tea in terms of active ingredients.

Green tea is widely known in the world as a beverage with antioxidant and anti-tumor properties, which is attributed to one of its polyphenolic constituents, which is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Green tea extract (Green Tea extract) – it is derived from the leaves of Chinese tea (camellia sinensis); has a wide range of pro-health and weight loss properties, reduces the risk of heart disease and some types of cancer, helps to control body weight. Moreover, it demonstrates anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, antihypertensive and antiatherosclerotic properties.

Green tea leaves contain almost 4 000 biologically active compounds, of which 1/3 are polyphenols. One of the most valuable components is bioactive catechin with a predominant – epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Catechins are valuable substances belonging to the group of polyphenols; They are one of the most powerful antioxidants, accelerate metabolic rate at rest, slow down the aging process, and energize cells. The green tea was found four main catechins: epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is a powerful antioxidant 100 times stronger than vitamin C, and 25 times stronger than vitamin E, and a powerful inhibitor of topoisomerase – some  chemotherapeutic drugs work similar – thanks to that it has anti-tumor properties.

Antiatherogenic properties
Epigallocatechin gallate exhibits its antiatherogenic action different ways, by acting directly on the causes of atherosclerotic changes in the walls of blood vessels. It neutralizes reactive oxygen, superoxide, hydroxyl, nitrogen and other radicals, chelates active iron ions, inhibits smooth muscle cell proliferation, suppress the activity of pro-oxidation enzymes, thereby it protects various cholesterol fractions (especially LDL) against oxidation, which underlies the development of atherosclerosis.

It also reduces blood pressure, eliminates endothelial dysfunctions, inhibits thromboxane (TXA2), thereby prevents the aggregation (sticking together) of platelets, as well as exhibits anti-inflammatory action by inhibiting NF-κB and AP-1 activating protein. It also acts as anticoagulants in lowering the level of soluble P-selectin in the plasma, which plays an important role in thrombosis of blood vessels.

The results of clinical trials confirm the protective effect of green tea catechins in atherosclerosis, hypertension and coronary heart disease. To prevent ischemic heart disease it is recommended to take ten cups of green tea, or the equivalent of one gram of polyphenols (including 360-540 mg EGCG), ie. 2-3 capsules of Now Foods EGCG Green Tea Extract (!).

Slimming properties
EGCG clearly and multidirectional affects the reduction of body fat. It reduces the level of triglycerides, cholesterol and fat accumulation in the liver. It inhibits the activity of enzymes that  decompose polysaccharides and emulsifying bile, thus reducing the absorption of carbohydrates and fats from food. By inhibiting glucose uptake in the intestine, it increases lipolysis through hormone lipase.

It also reduces the intracellular absorption of lipids, which reduces deposition of fat in the bowels and the liver. It decreases lipogenesis, increases the intensity of fat oxidation, as well as metabolism and postprandial thermogenesis. Scientific evidence points to the significant effect of EGCG on reducing the number and volume of fat cells.

EGCG stimulates human hair growth
Recent reports indicate the possibility of using EGCG in the prevention of hair loss in men, by specific inhibition of activity of the 5 α-reductase enzyme, which is responsible for the conversion of testosterone to one of its metabolites – DHT (dihydrotestosterone), which has a strong (undesired) activity in the prostate and the scalp.

There was also noted double acceleration of proliferation hair warts cells, as well as a 250% increase in the activity of kinases responsible for the transmission of signals to these cells, and thus blocking their natural death, and prolonging the period of hair growth.

In summary, Now Foods EGCG Green Tea Extract is a dietary supplement designed for people who want to lose weight due to its properties of increasing thermogenesis and fat distribution. It is prophylactically recommended to anyone considering its valuable health-promoting and anti-cancer properties. Its therapeutic use is manifested by preventing atherosclerosis, while aesthetically use – by stimulating hair growth.

One capsule of NOW Green Tea Extract with 200 mg EGCG has the phytonutrient content equal to about 2-3 cups of green tea. Green Tea Extract contains numerous compounds, including polyphenols and catechins, that provide powerful antioxidant benefits.

Green tea extract

Information

Green tea extract is a concentrate that contains biologically active compounds: polyphenols (e.g. catechin, in the form of EGCG - epigallocatechin gallate), having antioxidant properties and a small thermogenic potential, modifies the action of testosterone metabolites, DTH. Green tea extract is an ingredient of many sports supplements containing fat burners, having pro-health and vitaminizing effect; also for those with low physical activity as an antioxidant and slimming supplement. Available either as mono-preparations, ready drinks, and above all as an extract.
Dosage: 200-500 mg per day (depending of the content of other active bio-components).


 

Caffeine

Information

Caffeine (1,3,7-trimethylxanthine, 1-methylotheobromine) is a purine alkaloid occurring in the natural state in plants (Coffea arabica, Camelia sinensis, Paulinia cupana, Ilex paraguariensis), which acts as a natural pesticide, acting toxic to insects. Peculiar smell and taste also deters herbivores. Caffeine in the body inhibits the adenosine receptors in the brain, fighting fatigue and allowing for action activation. It has a beneficial effect on the metabolism of oxygen, which increases the exercise capacity (strength and endurance) and rapid post-workout recovery. In the sports supplementation, caffeine is used as a stimulant nervous system. It has the thermogenic potential and in combination with other substances (e.g. Polyphenols, both occurring in coffee beans, such as cocoa beans, tea leaves and mate) can effectively participate in the reduction of body fat. It is included in many dietary stimulants (creatine stacks, no-boosters, beverages). It is a component of fat burners. It is also in the form of mono-preparation supplements.
Dosage: 100-600 mg per day. Due to the long release of activity should not be used in the evening, before
sleep.


 

EGCG

Information


EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) - a compound occurring naturally in the leaves of green tea and sage nutmeg. Powerful antioxidant resulting in removing free radicals out of your body. It has the thermogenic potential (enhanced when combined with other substances including caffeine, capsaicin, etc.), allowing a faster fat reduction. Affects preventively in the side effects of the glandular hypertrophy (prostate) and male pattern baldness. Recommended for those who are active physically and professionally, for the maintenance of body composition and body aesthetics. It is a component of fat burners, allowing for faster slimming.
Dosage: 50-500 mg per day.
