Uses For Teavigo™
Healthy Cellular Function: Numerous studies have reported that EGCG provides optimal cellular function and antioxidant protection. Multiple recent studies have suggested that this polyphenolic compound supports prostate, colon, lung, and bladder health. Additionally, a clinical study reported that EGCG promoted healthy cervical tissue. An in-vitro study conducted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN, reported that EGCG helped promote blood cell health. Research has indicated that EGCG may promote cellular health through a number of pathways, including moderating hydroxyl radical formation as well as gene expression. Furthermore, EGCG may promote healthy lipid metabolism. Investigators in one study reported that the gallate moiety on the EGCG played a particularly important role in supporting healthy apolipoprotein metabolism.*
