Weight management

Forms: Extract

Actives: EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), L-theanine, caffeine and total catechins

About: Green tea extract is produced from steaming fresh leaves at high temperatures, thereby inactivating the oxidizing enzymes and leaving the polyphenol content intact. The extracts from dried green tea leaves are polyphenols, commonly known as flavanols or catechins. A powerful antioxidant, green tea has been shown to have a multitude of health benefits, including thermogenic and weight management properties.

 

Health benefit categories:

  • Weight management

 

MOA:  Benefits of catechins, mainly EGCG, are likely due to the antioxidant properties as well as the ability to interact with plasma membrane proteins, activate secondary messengers and signal transduction pathways, modulation of metabolic enzymes, and autophagy.
