Mega Green Tea Extract (Lightly Caffeinated)
100 vegetarian capsules
Item Catalog Number: 00953

Green tea contains health-promoting polyphenols including epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a powerful antioxidant which has been the subject of extensive scientific research. The antioxidant activity of EGCG is about 25–100 times that of vitamins C and E.336 One cup of green tea provides roughly 200 mg of polyphenols337 and has antioxidant effects that are greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.

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 is standardized to provide high potency EGCG, by far the most important polyphenol green tea provides. And green tea powdered extracts have been shown to absorb 60%-90% better into the bloodstream338 and to be far more bioavailable than drinking green tea itself.

Green tea has been shown to provide many benefits including:

  • Scavenging reactive oxygen species such as superoxide and the hydroxyl and peroxyl radical339-343
  • Fluid-stabilizing properties344-347
  • Possibly promoting weight loss348-353
  • Boosting the effectiveness of enzymatic phase II detoxification354-360
  • Helping maintain healthy cell proliferation361-375
  • Helping maintain healthy blood cholesterol, LDL and triglyceride levels already within normal range376-384
  • Enhancing immune function385-400
  • Displaying protective effects on brain tissues401-411

Mega Green Tea Extract has been concentrated and dual standardized to ensure the highest quality, consistency and biological activity. This advanced extract contains 98% total polyphenols and 45% epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).

    I have tried other green tea extract products in the past but this product is the best by far. For one, I trust the quality of Life Extension products. But in addition, the performance of this product is by far the best. I take it for all the known benefits of green tea extract but really like the slight caffeine boost, which is calm and steady (i.e., no jolt) and does not drop off (i.e., no rebound drowsiness). I take one capsule in the morning and then another around lunch time.

      Comments about Life Extension Mega Green Tea Extract (lightly caffeinated), 100 vegetarian capsules:

      I started buying LEF products when their catalog was a one page mimeographed sheet back in the early 80s. This product is truly one of the real bargains, both price and quality wise. Each bottle contains 100 capsules of GT at 725 milligrams/ capsule. That's more than twice the amount per capsule, and 40 capsules more per bottle than other brands, for the same price! You can't beat it!

          I am taking this product on the recommendation of my Chinese Medicine Man. Prior to taking this product I was drinking approximately 3 quarts of green tea daily to get the benefits of green tea. Now I just drink a couple cups and take this product twice daily. Nice to not have so much fluid in me. I do have to be careful as taking this product without food can make me jittery.

                Part of my wake-up routine every morning. Within minutes I feel alert without feeling buzzed. Liquid green tea has me racing for the bathroom 1/2 hour later, but this capsule form is a great way to get the health benefits without worrying about finding a facility during a morning commute.
