The method is comprised of providing a composition consisting of caffeine, saw palmetto berry derivative, epigallocatechin-3-gallate
(EGCG) derivative, D1 water, sodium C14-16 olefin sulfonate; cocamidopropyl betaine; cocamide DEA; dimethiconol dodecylbenzensulfonate; TEA dodecylbenzensulfonate; glycol distearate; sodium chloride; fragrance; hydrolyzed wheat protein; guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride; panthenol; methylchloroisothiazolinone; methylisothiazolinone and citric acid.
(EGCG) is the most abundant and potent catechin found in green tea responsible for these cancer prevention effects.
The purpose of this study was to examine whether epigallocatechin-3-gallate
(EGCG) prevents TNF-[alpha]-dependent endothelial dysfunction.
Activity of Green Tea Polyphenol Epigallocatechin-3-gallate
Against Ovarian Carcinoma Cell Lines.
Now we are finding that a molecule in green tea, Epigallocatechin-3-gallate
, or EGCG, interferes with the formation of these unwanted and dangerous amyloid plaques.
The specific molecule in green tea, epigallocatechin-3-gallate
, also known as EGCG, prevented aggregate formation and broke down existing aggregate structures in the proteins that contained metals-specifically copper, iron and zinc.
Researchers who fed a chemical - called Epigallocatechin-3-gallate
, or EGCG - in the tea to mice on a fatty diet found they got heavier 45% more slowly.
functions as an inhibitor of certain nuclear proteins important to the control (rate) of mitochondriogenesis and apoptosis.
Green tea constituent epigallocatechin-3-gallate
and induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in human carcinoma cells.
Green tea contains a potent mix of phytochemicals, of which the catechins, epigallocatechin-3-gallate
(EGCG) and epigallocatechin, have been well studied.
The researchers said they determined that the green tea polyphenol, or vegetable tannin, called epigallocatechin-3-gallate
(EGCG) is capable of neutralizing a protein in sperm which serves as a vector for viral transmission during sex.
