Tegreen 97
  • Second most popular beverage
  • Tremendous positive press
  • Top 20 in health food sales
  • Thousands of studies worldwide
    • Including National Cancer Institute
  • Dose: 250 mg capsule; 1 capsule/day with food

Tea is HOT!

proprietary processing
Proprietary processing
  • Only finest leaf buds and young leaves used
  • Cultivated in Zhejiang province (number one tea-producing region in China)
  • Proprietary extraction process
    • Achieves 97% polyphenols
      • 65% Catechins
        • 38% EGCg
green tea vs black tea
Green tea

Camellia sinensis

Non-fermented

Lightly steamed and dried

Benefit of process

Preservation polyphenols (similar to fresh leaves)

Black tea

Camellia sinensis

Fermented and dried.

Benefit of process

Flavor enhancing

Disadvantage

Destroys polyphenols

Green tea vs. Black tea
green tea research
Green tea research
  • Epidemiological studies on green tea drinkers
  • Polyphenol Research
    • Proven antioxidants
    • Cell protection
    • Inhibition of abnormal cell proliferation
what are polyphenols
What are Polyphenols?
  • Powerful antioxidants
  • High concentrations in green tea
  • Tegreen enriched for polyphenol anti-oxidants, particularly Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg)

New Research by Pharmanex collaborators
  • Abnormal cells proliferate and live longer than normal cells
  • The life of a normal cell is regulated by a natural regulatory mechanism called programmed cell death (apoptosis)
  • Apoptosis is severely limited in abnormal cells
  • Pharmanex collaborators discovered unique enzyme (tNOX) in abnormal cells associated with this defect
inhibition of enzyme tnox activity in cancer cells
