Prevent and the Power of Green Tea
The green tea in Prevent has a special therapeutic charge of 75% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)—a powerful polyphenol that helps fight disease. This isolate in green tea has been proven to be effective in preventing breast, lung, mouth, stomach, and prostate diseases by preventing cells from becoming sick, inhibiting growth of damaged cells, and attacking or inducing death in diseased cells.
Studies suggest that EGCG may boost metabolism and help burn fat. In a French study, resting metabolic rate increased by 4% after 90 mg of EGCG was consumed three times per day. Scientists at the University of Chicago’s Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research have found that EGCG caused rats to lose up to 21% of their body weight. Rats injected with EGCG derived from green tea leaves lost their appetites and consumed up to 60% less food after seven days of daily injections. EGCG seems to desensitize leptin receptors (leptin may play a role in appetite) in the study of animals. Most green tea products on the market reach a maximum of 55% EGCG. New Roots Herbal’s green tea extract contains the highest quantity of EGCG available in supplement form. Each 500 mg capsule contains 75% EGCG.
