Green Tea Extract 500 mg

Natural source of antioxidants. Proven aid for weight reduction.

Green tea is a natural source of antioxidants, which neutralize harmful molecules in the body known as free radicals. Researchers have found that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant-like compound found in green tea, is over 200 times more powerful than vitamin E in neutralizing pro-oxidants and free radicals.

Studies have already shown that green tea may lead to a lower risk of skin, lung and prostate cancer, but now, it appears that the nutrient's EGCG may be effective at lowering the risk of esophageal cancer. Researchers at Harvard Medical School and VA Boston Healthcare System found that EGCG effectively inhibited the growth and reproduction of esophageal cancer cells. It was found that EGCG induced "cell suicide," preventing the cancerous cells from replicating. In addition, increased EGCG concentration led to a higher rate of cell suicide, with no harm to healthy cells.

In recent studies, green tea extract (standardized to 90 mg of EGCG) increased the 24-hour energy expenditure in human subjects, thus aiding in weight reduction. Plus, the antioxidants of green tea are also beneficial for the heart, as they help decrease levels of LDL ("bad") cholesterol. In addition, green tea contains a small amount of caffeine (1% or 5 mg), so it serves as a mild appetite suppressant.

No More Icky Tea
by Stacy

I hate the taste of tea so I was thrilled to find these Green Tea Extract capsules. I truly believe in the health benefits of green tea and this way I can get them without having to choke down the liquid tea. The only bad thing is that these pills are a little on the pricey side.

Works in many good ways
by christiana

I was taking the Solaray brand of green tea for sometime but I noticed that it makes me feel dizzy and not focused, so I decided to try another brand. I bought this green tea and liked it, not just because of the health benefits, but because it helped me lose weight and I had better concentration and feel focused with it. Overall, it's a good product for the price.

Tasteful and healthful
by Linda

I love the idea of taking capsules. I used to drink a few cups of green tea, I never really did like the taste. I take 2 capsules daily and I am done. I don't have to mess with boiling the water anymore. It so easy and efficient, I don't know how it could get easier. It is a bargain for how many capsules you get. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to have better health.

Easy Tea
by Denise

I love Green Tea, but it's not always the most convenient to brew. This product gives me the benefits of green tea without the necessity of heating elements, water, cups, and tea. I take half dose every day because I usually have a cup with dinner. My skin has never looked so good.

Great Price-Great Benefit
by Angee705

I love the convenience of this product. I always make sure that I drink as much green tea as possible because of the health benefits. Now I don't have to try and heat up a cup of hot tea. Instead, I can just take my 2 daily capsules and I am done. The price and quantity is awesome.
