Product Information Menu
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:
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 took this and lost 120 lbs"

About Me Medical Professional
I take 1 capsule religiously each morning, as I did through out my weight loss journey, and now that I am in the maintenance phase. I drink green tea as well. It really helped me lose weight quicker than I would have without it.
GREEN TEA TONIC

About Me First Time User
I use it every day, one with each meal. I always drink 8 oz of fluid with it. I have noticed that I feel very good since taking it and my immune system is much stronger as I don't have as many health problems as before or to the severity of before taking this product. Iv'e tried lesser brands and cheaper ones but they just don't have the same effect.
Great way to benefit from green tea
About Me First Time User, Health Conscious
I was forced to stop drinking green tea because it caused staining on my teeth. I was very glad to find this product containing NO CORN that I now use daily, once again benefitting from the properties of green tea.
I will buy this product again

I've only been using these capsules about 1-2 months and will be in a better position to evaluate it after more time has passed. Right now, I notice no difference in my health.
Potent Green Tea
About Me Health Conscious, Regular User
I use the lightly caffinated version. The way I use it is to break the capsule open and pour it into my morning herbal tea. It dissolves quickly and the hot water extracts every last ounce of the active chemicals out because it has high amounts of polyphenols 710mgs, and egcg 325mgs. Then I use honey and lemon with it, mix, and I've got a great way to start the day!

This product gives you good energy without jitters or keeping you up at night.
safe without jitters
By Health conscious Diane

About Me Health Conscious
Product was exactly what I was looking for since I couldn't drink excess green tea to reap the benefits I get from this one pill. Before taking anything I use caution and research it and of course, spoke with someone at Life Extension, who spent more than enough time with me explaining everything and answering all my questions. Will continue to order their products.
from Beaverton, OR
Specif use is for rashes of unknown origin but not related to poision oak, etc. When I stopped taking the product the rash(s) would appear again over time. Excellent overall benefits.
