Are Green Tea Capsules Good

Green tea extract caffeine

How much caffeine is in your Green Tea capsules, and what is the level of active components?

NOW Green Tea Extract capsules contain less than 16 mg of caffeine per capsule, or less than 4% of the capsule’s content. NOW Foods follows AHPA (American Herbal Products Association) rules and we declare caffeine content on our labels.

Studies have identified a number of different components in Green Tea Extract that may be responsible for its benefits. The most prevalent compounds are polyphenols, of which catechins are the most important. Green Tea Extract capsules contain an average of 40% catechins, and 11% is EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), thought to be the most active and effective of the catechins.

What process does NOW use to extract caffeine from Decaffeinated Green Tea?

We use a clean carbon dioxide extraction method that is safe and effective. Some companies utilize a chemical extraction process that uses ethylene acetate, but this process may leave a residue and is not as safe as carbon dioxide extraction. Green Tranquility is our only Green Tea product that is free of caffeine.

What is EGCg?

EGCg is a very concentrated green tea extract containing the bioactive compounds Polyphenols and Catechins, both important free radical scavengers. It is standardized to contain (minimum) 80% Total Catechins and 50% EGCg. This formula contains less than 4 mg of caffeine per capsule.
