In the March issue of Toronto-based Tonic Magazine, Dr. Bryce Wylde mentions the powers of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a form of polyphenol found in green tea, among his many sought-after nutrition tips. Wylde, a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show, writes, “Other studies have suggested that the green tea extract EGCG boosts metabolism and may aid in weight loss.”
Science has been continuously revealing the benefits of tea, and green tea is now touted as one of the healthiest drinks in the world. Tea catechins prevent the oxidation of fat in foods, and are thus natural antioxidant agents. Among them, EGCG has about twenty times the antioxidant power of vitamin E.
But while green tea’s popularity continues to skyrocket, a number of companies have come under regulatory scrutiny due to the quality and/or safety of their tea extracts. Most of this concern has been traced back to questionable extraction methods and a general lack of adherence to solvent and pesticide regulations.
Products containing Sunphenon are a good alternative for people who don’t have time to brew and drink several cups of green tea each day. With Sunphenon, you get green tea’s health benefits with the reassurance that Sunphenon is produced from pesticide-compliant green tea. No chloroform or other illegal solvents are used in the processing of any Sunphenon extracts.
