More than just a popular drink
EGCG Max
is a potent, standardized extract of green tea with high levels of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Green tea is consumed in high quantities in Japan, whose citizens boast the longest average lifespan in the world. Studies have found that those who consume high amounts of green tea live longer, develop less cancer, and have better cardiovascular health.

The power of catechins
The beneficial components of green tea, known as catechins, have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Green tea has been found to reduce the risk of coronary artery disease and heart attack, and catechins have been shown to decrease blood levels of oxidized LDL (bad cholesterol), which contributes to the development of atherosclerosis. Catechins support normal cell growth and have protective effects against several kinds of cancer. Animal studies suggest that catechins help to improve learning and memory, and to reduce fatigue.

Effective dose, convenient capsules
Studies have found that to fully reap the health benefits of green tea, ten or more cups must be consumed per day! AOR's EGCG Max provides this dose in a convenient capsule form.

True tea - both green and black - comes from the leaves of Camellia sinensis. Green tea was brought to Japan by Buddhist monks from China, and the Japanese people quickly embraced the soothing, grassy brew. Today, the citizens of Japan boast the longest average lifespan in the world, and there are reams of research to suggest that green tea is a major factor in their robust health.

Research in experimental animals has found green tea or its extracts to be effective against cancers of the lung, breast, colon, liver, and skin, as well as a variety of gastrointestinal organs, cancers induced by chemical carcinogens; more excitingly, green tea extracts have been found to protect animals from existing, spontaneous prostate cancer. More importantly, extensive epidemiological evidence shows that people consuming high amounts of Japanese sencha green tea live longer develop less cancer, have healthier cholesterol levels, suffer less cardiovascular and liver disease, and may be less susceptible to heart attacks.

How Much Tea?
The most consistent epidemiological evidence for a protective effect of green tea comes from the consumption of ten cups or more of Japanese sencha per day. Few Westerners drink this much green tea. So to get green tea's benefits, many health-conscious people have turned to standardized extracts of the green tea leaf itself.

If you're looking to use green tea for longevity and to guard against age-related disease, it only makes sense to get the best-backed dose of the best-backed molecule. 800 to 1600 milligrams of EgCG per day are the doses that are being used in the human clinical trials that have begun in the last few years.

The Caffeine Conundrum
Green tea contains very little caffeine compared to coffee - but of course, it can still add up if you start drinking ten cups of the steaming brew a day. Indeed, one clinical trial which has been using ground tea solids as its 'drug' has reported significant side-effects - including insomnia, fatigue, confusion, nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain, and even vomiting - linked to the caffeine content.

Some green tea supplements are fully decaffeinated to avoid any such problems. While this approach is better than adding as much as 500 milligrams of extra caffeine to your day, these supplements are inherently less effective than real tea, because several studies have found that caffeine itself plays a significant role in the cancer-fighting powers of green tea.

There are other benefits to a moderate intake of caffeine. For instance, a large body of research now suggests that modest caffeine consumption reduces your risk of developing Parkinson's disease. Green tea polyphenols and caffeine also synergize to increase the body's thermogenic fat-burning activity - effects with important implications for the Battle of the Bulge, which is an engagement important for health and vanity alike.

Lightly-caffeinated green tea extracts provide a happy medium between caffeine-induced side effects and the loss of significant health benefits.

Putting it All in a Capsule
Green tea extracts should be standardized to their content of EgCG. They should make it convenient to get 1500 milligrams of EgCG a day, to match the strong epidemiological evidence of health benefits in Japanese sencha drinkers. And they should contain at least a little caffeine, so that the often-synergistic interactions between EgCG and caffeine can be unleashed. Put it all together, and you'll have squeezed a remarkable amount of health benefit into a few small capsules.
