Green Tea Extract (EgCG) Shows Promise In Leukemia (CLL)Trials

Wow. This is some good news regarding EgCG Green Tea Extract:

"ScienceDaily (May 27, 2009) — Mayo Clinic researchers are reporting positive results in early leukemia clinical trials using the chemical epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an active ingredient in green tea."

"In the first clinical trial, 33 patients received variations of eight different oral doses of Polyphenon E, a proprietary compound whose primary active ingredient is EGCG. Doses ranged from 400 milligrams (mg) to 2,000 mg administered twice a day. Researchers determined that they had not reached a maximum tolerated dose, even at 2,000 mg twice per day."

I just updated our EgCG high-potency, high-purity green tea extract to offer 393mg EgCG per dose. Capsules are smaller and easier to swallow. Our documented purity product assures no worries from mold/microbial/heavy metal contamination that could be risky with cheap low-quality, low-potency brands.
