Most powerful catechin - EGCG
Green tea is made from the leaves of Camellia sinensis, and is also commonly referred to as green tea extract or the green tea catechins (GTCs) of which there are 4 main categories:
Of these, EGCG has been shown to be the most biologically active and contains the highest polyphenolic content accounting for 50-80% of the antioxidant properties.
Consequently, millions of people consume green tea (beverage and/or supplement) due to its research-proven ability to act as an anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic, antioxidant, anti-bacterial, neuro-protectant, and cholesterol-lowering compound. In fact, green tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world next to water.
Research has shown that Green Tea may be beneficial for:
- improving blood pressure
- reducing LDL (bad cholesterol) and increasing HDL (good cholesterol) levels
- decreasing the risk of developing atherosclerosis through its anti-inflammatory properties
- regulating healthy glucose levels as well as carbohydrate metabolism (weight loss and anti-diabetic effects)
- anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties
- proper immune function
- reducing the risk of neurodegenerative diseases (i.e. Alzheimer’s)
- maintaining a healthy cardiovascular system
- preventing certain types of cancer through its free radical scavenging ability
Zetpil™ EGCG suppository is unique because it represents the marriage of science and reality. By embracing the physical properties of green tea, the researchers and scientists at Zetpil™ conceived that an alternative delivery method may increase the levels of EGCG one could achieve over a longer period of time. Based on research-proven concepts of absorption-enhancing natural compounds, excipients, therapeutically effective dosages and state-of-the-art production methods, Zetpil™ has formulated an EGCG product which is cost-effective, safe, non-competitive, avoids enzymatic breakdown in the stomach and liver and is patient-friendly. The science indicates one must absorb approximately 50mg/kg/day of body weight to achieve the predictable therapeutic benefits of green tea’s most powerful catechin- EGCG. The Zetpil™ Green Tea Extract suppository offers the health-conscious consumer the opportunity to potentially meet those levels.
