EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate) is a powerful anti-oxidant content of green tea. Green tea components are known to help against viral infections and with no harmful effects. According to an article published in US National Library of Medicine National institute of Health: “Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG) Is the Most Effective Cancer Chemopreventive Polyphenol in Green Tea.”* According to Dr. Lee, our high antioxidant green tea should help to maintain immunity in general and that has become increasingly important given the current world circumstances. Currently, we do not have similar drugs to do the same thing.
Our TeaForHealth organic green tea has as much as 500% more EGCG (anti-oxidants) than other green teas and we believe that to be the highest standard of any green tea. Our tea is tested at harvest and again by an independent laboratory during packaging to verify EGCG levels and to be sure the tea is pesticide and contaminant free. We know of no other producer that does such complete testing.
