EGCg Green Tea Extract (400mg) Overview
Green Tea Extract has been the subject of hundreds of studies, yet new benefits continue to be found for this powerful and affordable nutrient. Green tea benefits your metabolism (it's in almost every diet formula), cardiovascular health, immune function and more. The key to green tea's protective benefits, it's chief active ingredient, is the compound EGCG. But the EGCG content of brewed green tea is variable, so green tea extract supplements like this one from NOW Foods are a better way to go if you're looking to use green tea nutritionally. Each capsule of NOW EGCG Green Tea Extract supplies 200 mg of EGCG, or about 3 cups worth. Because you take green tea extract in capsule form, it's a lot more convenient than brewed green tea, and easier to use on a day to day basis.
Nutritionally-minded users appreciate that green tea extracts are among the most natural and least processed of all dietary supplements, as well as being affordable, too, even the premium brands like NOW's EGCG Green Tea Extract. So by now most national brands, even drugstores and supermarkets, have capitalized on green tea's popularity by marketing a green tea supplement of their own. But the quality of green tea raw materials and supplements varies widely and can be hard for customers to evaluate. So choose a top brand like NOW Foods' EGCG Green Tea Extract, backed by NOW's unsurpassed reputation for ingredient purity and potency, and start capitalizing on green tea's benefits for yourself.
