Sunphenon® EGCg Supplement - Green Tea Extract with Antioxidant Power

Sunphenon® EGCg is a new green tea extract in vegetarian capsules, with a very high catechin content, particularly epigallocatechin-gallate (EGCg), which significantly increases its efficacy and explains its multiple benefits for maintaining optimal health.

What are the properties of green tea?

Although there are over 3,000 types of tea, they all originate from the same plant species, Camellia sinensis. Unlike fermented teas (such as oolong and black tea), green tea undergoes rapid steam-drying. This inactivates enzymes and allows its natural ‘chlorophyll' colour to be retained, as well as its polyphenol content, largely made up of catechins which represent 20% of the leaf and which are responsible for the majority of green tea's health benefits.

Studies conducted on green tea over the last few years have provided mounting evidence of the health benefits of its polyphenols, such as:

  • Potent antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-cariogenic effects.
  • Protection of the kidneys.
  • Thermogenic properties, promoting effective weight control.
  • Regulating blood sugar and lipid levels.
  • Important role in longevity.

Green tea is becoming increasingly popular as scientific evidence continues to confirm its health benefits. However, doubts have been raised over the quality and safety of green tea extracts because of the questionable extraction methods used by some laboratories and a general lack of regard for regulations governing authorized solvents and pesticides. You can now buy Sunphenon® EGCg, which is guaranteed to be non-toxic. It is obtained from green tea leaves that have not been treated with prohibited pesticides and it is extracted via a simple water infusion process. It is decaffeinated using food grade solvents, without the use of chloroform or other non-regulation-compliant solvents. It is also guaranteed to be free from heavy metal residues (mercury or lead).

What are the benefits associated with Sunphenon® EGCg capsules?

Sunphenon® EGCg® EGCg has significant antioxidant capacity because of its high content in the most powerful of the catechins, EGCg - it is 20 times more potent than vitamin E. EGCg neutralizes reactive oxygen species and free radicals and as it easily crosses the blood-brain barrier, it helps protect the brain from oxidative stress. Taking a green tea extract standardized in EGCg produces a faster increase in antioxidant levels in the blood than drinking green tea, with none of the side-effects of theine. This ability to neutralize age-related free radicals makes Sunphenon® EGCg a key anti-ageing supplement for ensuring antioxidant protection, now available to buy at Supersmart.

  • Green tea extracts standardized in polyphenols, particularly EGCg, are now also recognized for their ability to lengthen telomeres. According to a large-scale Chinese study conducted by the University of Hong Kong involving over 2000 participants aged 65 or over, consuming at least 700ml of green tea a day was associated with an average increase in telomere length of over 46%, corresponding to a five-year extension in lifespan, particularly in men.
  • Today, green tea polyphenols are increasingly recognized and recommended for fighting fat and achieving controlled, safe weight loss as a result both of their ability to regulate genes, and the antioxidant properties of EGCg.
  • Its role in improving the control of lipid metabolism and reducing lipoprotein oxidation makes Sunphenon® EGCg an excellent protector of the cardiovascular system. It also supports optimal circulatory function by inhibiting the angiotensin-converting enzyme which is partly responsible for high blood pressure.
  • Green tea polyphenols are recognized for relieving digestive problems and increasing intestinal peristalsis. Sunphenon® EGCg has thus been shown to be particularly beneficial for those with a tendency towards constipation.
  • Its most important characteristic, however, was highlighted recently in a series of studies conducted at the Charité University of Berlin. This cell-experimental and animal research showed that EGCg has a neuro-protective effect over and above its antioxidant effects, related to the expression of genes regulating cell survival or programmed cell death (apoptosis) as well as modulation of mitochondrial function. It seems EGCg causes an induction of alpha-secretase as well as other enzymatic mechanisms and prevents the aggregation of beta-amyloid to toxic oligomers. Study author Dr Paul Friedemann and his fellow researchers thus consider EGCg to be a promising substance in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease and its development.

EGCg ist sonst leider kaum zu bekommen. Ich bin froh, dass ich hier eine zuverlässige Quelle habe.
Sehr gute Qualität. Gute Resultate. Muss aber über längere Zeit eingenommen werden.
