Green Tea has numerous beneficial effects on the body. As compared to black tea, green tea contains a high level of catechins, a type of polyphenol, an antioxidant. The catechins in black tea are lost during processing.1
Green Tea Extract (GTE) contains the concentrated beneficial agents of green tea. Green Tea Extract contains ECGC (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), a powerful antioxidant with neuroprotective activity, and contains other protective polyphenol catechins.2
Green tea supports a strong healthy immune system.9 T cells are critical for healthy immunity. EGCG has been shown to increase T cell activity in the spleen and lymph nodes.10
