Health Benefits at a Glance:
Green T-Max uses a special, environmentally friendly extraction process that preserves eight health-promoting catechins which inhibit free radicals and inflammation throughout the body. The extract in Green T-Max also supports a healthy metabolism, heart health and the healthy proliferation of cells throughout the body.
Why it Works:
The tea plant (Camellia sinensis) naturally creates a wealth of healthy compounds called catechins. The most well-known catechin is probably EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate). Most industry-standard green tea extracts are standardized primarily to this catechin.
However, many fail to acknowledge the health benefits that other catechins in the green tea plant also have.
These compounds inhibit oxidizing free radicals and boost defenses against oxidative stress. They also help inhibit inflammation, thereby promoting healthy cells throughout the body. They also support a healthy metabolism, heart health and proliferation of healthy cells.
Moreover, due to its liposomal formulation, the catechins can be delivered readily into the body, giving the catechins in the Green T-Max formula up to twelve times higher availability than standard green tea catechins.
Green Tea Max is sugar- and gluten-free, non-GMO, and only has 5,5 mg of caffeine per serving.
The Science Behind the Product:
To maintain the potency of the catechins in the Origine 8™ formula the catechins are extracted from the green tea plant within six hours of being harvested. This unique extraction process preserves a broad-spectrum of no less than eight different catechins to be used in The Origine 8™ formula. These catechins are (Catechin (C), Catechin gallate (CG), Epicatechin gallate (ECG), Epicatechin (EC), Gallocatechin (GC), Gallocatechin gallate (GCG), Epigallocatechin (EGC) and Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG)).
Several different catechins from the green tea plant have been shown to have a positive impact on certain aspects of health:
While EGCG has potent benefits for healthy cell proliferation. However, one study also found that epicatechin gallate (ECG) and catechin gallate (CG) were more effective than EGCG at promoting healthy cell proliferation and inhibiting inflammation in vitro .
Consuming catechins such as EGC, EC, ECG, GCG, and EGCG helps to maintain already-healthy cholesterol levels.
A pre-clinical study indicates that epicatechin (EC) and catechin (C) encourage healthy vascular function by supporting healthy homocysteine levels, while catechin (C) also helped inhibit inflammatory markers . Other evidence suggests that these two catechins promote healthy endothelial and mitochondrial function in vitro [3, 4].
Catechins can also help maintain blood pressure levels, which are already healthy. During a 12 week double-blind trial, catechin (C) produced a greater effect on systolic blood pressure compared to control .
Finally, the ingredients in Green T-Max are delivered in a liposomal delivery form, which ensures that ingredients can readily enter the body. This means that the ingredients have 12 times higher bioavailability compared to standard green tea extracts.
