More facts about Green T-Max
The tea plant (Camellia sinensis) naturally creates healthy compounds called catechins. The one you may have heard of is EGCG, or epigallocatechin-3-gallate. Most industry-standard green tea extracts are standardized primarily to this catechin—but not the others. Green T-Max uses a special, environmentally friendly extraction process that preserves 8 health-promoting catechins.
Origine 8™ Green Tea Extract
To maintain potency, Origine 8™ is extracted within six hours of being harvested. The unique extraction process preserves a broad-spectrum of green tea catechins—so much so that Origine 8™ is standardized to contain eightof these healthy green tea catechins.
- Catechin (C)
- Catechin gallate (CG)
- Epicatechin gallate (ECG)
- Epicatechin (EC)
- Gallocatechin (GC)
- Gallocatechin gallate (GCG)
- Epigallocatechin (EGC)
- Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)
This extraction process also renders these catechin compounds 12 times more bioavailable than those found in standard green tea extract. Bioavailability refers to how much of a particular nutrient actually enters your bloodstream and can be utilized by your body.
Liposome encapsulation— this green tea extract is then wrapped in a liposome made of non-GMO sunflower oil and oleic acid to ensure freshness and stability.
Catechin health benefits
Green tea catechins inhibit oxidizing free radicals and boost defenses against oxidative stress. They also help inhibit inflammation. The most famous green tea catechin is epigallocatechin-3-gallate, or EGCG. But it's not the only catechin that provides health benefits.
Cellular health: While EGCG has potent benefits for healthy cell proliferation, other catechins may be even more powerful. In fact, one study found that epicatechin gallate (ECG) and catechin gallate (CG) were more effective than EGCG at promoting healthy cell proliferation and inhibiting inflammation in vitro.1
Cholesterol support: Consuming catechins such as EGC, EC, ECG, GCG, and EGCG helps to maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels. Plus, a pre-clinical study indicates that these catechins can inhibit the oxidation of LDL cholesterol in mice,2 which promotes circulatory health.
Vascular health: A pre-clinical study indicates that epicatechin (EC) and catechin (C) encourage healthy vascular function by supporting healthy homocysteine levels, while catechin (C) also helped inhibit inflammatory markers.3Other evidence suggests that these two catechins promote healthy endothelial and mitochondrial function in vitro.4,5
Blood pressure: Catechins can also help maintain already-healthy blood pressure levels: during a 12 week double-blind trial, catechin (C) produced a greater effect on systolic blood pressure compared to control.6
Sugar free, low caffeine, non-GMO: Each capsule of Green T-Max is made with no synthetic components, is sugar- and gluten-free, and has only 5.5 mg of caffeine (compared with the 20 mg average of a standard cup of green tea). Get your healthy green-tea fix. Try Green T-Max today!
