Mechanism of Action
The major catechin in green tea – known as Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate, or EGCg – is the main contributor to green teas many health benefits. EGCg is the ester of epigallocatechin and galic acid. Scientists believe antioxidants, such as EGCg, protect and repair cells from damage and may provide natural benefits for heart health, weight control and oral care (teeth and breath).
The powerful antioxidant properties of catechins, primarily EGCg, are widely demonstrated in animal and human research studies. In addition, studies show that the EGCg in green tea also enhances metabolism, increases fat oxidation and aids weight management. Some results have indicated that body weight and BMI were significantly decreased by consumption of EGCg.
