EGCg is extracted from Green Tea and is loaded with catechins and poly phenols. EGCg contains the most powerful parts of green tea.

1. "Many studies on health benefits have been linked to the catechin content. According to Norman Hollenberg, professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, epicatechin can reduce the risk of four of the major health problems: stroke, heart failure, cancer and diabetes."

2. (EGCg) "to reduce obesity in Type 2 Diabetics and reduce Cardiovascular risk factors." pubmed-19147161

3. "A higher intake of catechin-rich food may provide some protection against age-dependent diseases." pubmed-23240554

4. "EGCG significantly decreased AGE-stimulated gene expression.." pubmed-19445683

5. "EGCG induces the expression of UGT1A, UGT1A8 and UGT1A10 genes (Suppresses Cancer) via a Nrf2-dependent mechanism."  pubmed-16620709 

6. "Human plasma proteins...fibronectin, fibrinogen, and a 75-kDa...Dot binding assays demonstrated the interaction of EGCg with these proteins... These data suggest that when EGCg is absorbed in the body through the digestive system, it may interact with these proteins in blood plasma." pubmed-8987550

These are just a fraction of scientific studies about the benifits of Green Tea and EGCg are its potent extracts.
