Tegreen 97 is a standardized, caffeine-free polyphenol extract of the fresh leaves of the tea plant Camellia sinensis . The major components of Tegreen are polyphenols, which have proven free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties. The polyphenols with the most active antioxidant activity are the catechins, specifically epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) and epigallocatechin (EGC).*
Each 250 mg capsule of proprietary Tegreen contains a 20:1 extract of green tea leaves ( Camellia sinensis ) standardized to a minimum 97% pure polyphenols including 162 mg catechins, of which 95 mg is EGCg, 37 mg is ECG, and 15 mg is EGC. Tegreen 97 is decaffeinated (<0.5 mg).
As a dietary supplement, take one to four 250 mg capsules qd; preferably one to two each morning and evening with food. Each capsule provides the green tea polyphenols typically found in approximately 7 cups of high-quality brewed green tea.
Not known to be associated with any significant side effects or toxicity. Since Tegreen contains only trace amounts of caffeine (approximately 1-1.3 mg/capsule), it should not produce the stimulant caused by the consumption of caffeine-containing beverages.
Tegreen has not been evaluated in children and should only be used by adults. Pregnant or breastfeeding mothers should consult a physician prior to use. Consult a physician prior to use if taking anticoagulants, or other prescription medications. Discontinue use of this product 2 weeks prior to and after surgery.
Tegreen capsules of 250 mg each are supplied in 30 and 120 count bottles, and can be purchased from independent distributors and select pharmacies.
