Mega Green Tea Extract (Lightly Caffeinated) 100 vegetarian capsules
Green tea contains health-promoting 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.298 One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols299 and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.
One capsule of Life Extension’s Mega Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea. And green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60%-90% better into the bloodstream300 and to be far more bioavailable than drinking green tea itself.
