Further research on green tea has revealed the occurrence of strong antioxidants, known as polyphenols; particularly flavonoid and catechins. These two components are among the most researched elements in green tea following the drink’s effectiveness in promoting weight loss and preventing free radical damage.
Catechins, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) works by reducing weight and body fat as well as boosting metabolism and oxidising fat.
However, you can’t fully enjoy the benefits of EGCG by drinking it. This is because research has also shown that our bodies have difficulty absorbing polyphenols such as EGCG.
The Nutrilite Green-T Plus Tablet optimises the benefits of green tea in a tablet form that is easy to be consumed anytime, anywhere. It uses the Green Select® Phytosome® technology that generates better EGCG absorption, which is an important element in also boosting body metabolism.
Clinical studies have shown that Green Select® Phytosome® increases metabolic rate by boosting the effects of Norepinephrine, the hormone that helps break down fat and release energy into our bloodstream. EGCG coupled with Green Select® Phytosome® technology has proven to be the most effective combination to attain an ideal body weight.
Overall, scientific research has shown that EGCG induces good cholesterol (HDL), efficiently manages lipid (triglyceride) levels in the blood, manages fasting glucose levels better and reduces Body Mass Index (BMI).
Apart from the 20mg EGCG per tablet, the supplement also contains brown algae or laminaria japonica that is rich in fucoxanthin, a type of carotenoid that increases your body’s ability to break down fat and prevent the accumulation of fat around the stomach and liver.

Health advisory: It is recommended to check with your physician on what is the appropriate EGCG dosage you should consume in a day. Adverse effects may occur if an inappropriate amount of EGCG is consumed.
