Our liposomal EGCG supplements are available as capsules, liquids and a water-soluble powder. Moreover, we are open to discuss other tailored solutions. The quality of our high-end liposomal EGCG supplements is guaranteed by our professionally trained team and their commitment to scientific excellence.
Health benefits of EGCG
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is a natural health ingredient present in green tea and other natural sources such as fruits and cacao. Catechins including EGCG are thought to be responsible for the beneficial health effects that are suggested for green tea in literature* [1,2]. For example, EGCG has been associated with managing weight* [3,4] and blood glucose levels* . Furthermore, evidence in both human and animal studies suggests that EGCG plays a role in cardiovascular health* [6-8]. Finally, EGCG is suggested to have an antioxidant function*, because it scavenges free radicals and oxidants . This helps protect body tissues and cells from oxidative damage*.
*These claims are currently on hold for revision by EFSA and not yet approved.
Why take liposomal EGCG?
After oral administration, EGCG needs to be taken up in the gut in order to execute its suggested health functions. At LIPOSOMA, we design and produce liposomal supplements, which maximize the chance of uptake of delicate natural health ingredients, including EGCG, after oral intake. Being a substance vulnerable for degradation, EGCG benefits from protection by the liposomes in the gastrointestinal tract, making sure the active form remains preserved before it is absorbed by the body [10-13].
