Life Extension Mega Green Tea Extract with 98% Polyphenols contains health-promoting polyphenols including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research. One Capsule of Life Extension’s Mega Green Tea Extract provides more polyphenols than you get from drinking three cups of green tea. This 98% green tea extract (lightly caffeinated or decaffeinated) is standardized to provide high potency EGCG, by far the most important polyphenol green tea provides. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is about 25-100 times that of vitamins C and E.175 One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries. And 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.
