  • About EGCG
    For thousands of years, green tea has been used as a supplement for good health. Recent, exhaustive scientific studies conclude that the EGCG found in green tea leaves is an effective Antioxidant, Antiatherogenic, Antithrombotic, Antimicrobial, and Antiobesity compound. Green tea catechins, especially EGCG, make up approximately thirty percent of the dry weight of green tea leaves.
    Of the catechins, EGCG is the most abundant one in green tea leaves. Green tea has and continues to be a popular beverage in the Orient (especially in Korea, China and Japan). In this region, it is thought to have a number of health-promoting benefits, and it is used in the management of various disorders. Clinical studies suggest that green tea may have cancer chemopreventive, as well as anti-atherogenic properties.
  • Ja kyung's EGCG
    Ja Kyung uses natural EGCG, which is isolated from green tea leaves with a purity of 60-70%. Our patented process produces a fine powder with an EGCG purity of over 95% . Since our EGCG powder is a pure compound, it can be added to the full spectrum of dietary supplements, food products and beverages without noticeably affecting their color and taste.
  • Health Benefits
    • EGCG has protective effects against betaA-induced neuronal apoptosis through scavenging reactive oxygen species, which may be beneficial for the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
    • EGCG has preventive effects on both chronic inflammatory diseases and lifestyle-related diseases (including cardiovascular disease and cancer), resulting in prolongation of life span.
    • EGCG is shown to be a potent natural inhibitor of leukocyte elastase that may be used to reduce elastase-mediated progression to emphysema and tumor invasion.
    • EGCG exhibits protective effects against betaA-induced neuronal apoptosis through scavenging reactive oxygen species, which may be beneficial for the prevention of Alzheimer's disease.
    • EGCG targets multiple MMP-mediated cellular events in cancer cells and provides a new mechanism for the anticancer properties of that molecule.
    • EGCG has been suggested to have antiviral activity. To determine the effects of EGCG on HIV infection, peripheral blood lymphocytes infected with HIV were incubated with increasing concentrations of EGCG. EGCG strongly inhibited the replication of the HIV virus.
    • EGCG may be prophylactic for arthritis and may benefit the arthritis patient by reducing inflammation and slowing cartilage breakdown.
    • EGCG is associated with lower serum concentration of total cholesterol.
    • EGCG promotes oral health
    • Ingestion of EGCG leads to a reduction in body fat .

  • New Research Results
    • EGCG may interfere with a process that helps early bladder cancer to spread throughout the body. The findings, say researchers, bolster ongoing studies into EGCG as a cancer treatment -- and may give green tea drinkers more reason to savor every cup.
    • Investigators found that when they exposed human bladder cells to both a cancer-causing chemical and green tea extract, the extract interfered with a particular process by which early cancer cells become invasive and spread throughout body tissue.
    • This process involves the "remodeling" of actin, a structural protein in cells that is essential for cell movement. Actin remodeling allows cancer cells to move and invade nearby healthy tissue.
    • Based on the new findings, green tea extract may get in the way of this process by activating a protein known as Rho, which helps regulate actin's organization in cells and has been implicated in tumor development and progression. Another finding showed that individuals who consume EGCG are less likely to develop hypertension than people who don셳 use EGCG.
  • Technical Data

  • Case Studies

    Atherosclerosis is a disease that promotes the build-up of cholesterol in arterial cells and causes hardening of the arteries. EGCG aids in the prevention of atherosclerosis by providing substantial antioxidant activity, acting as an anti-inflammatory and inhibiting vascular smooth muscular growth.

    This chart stresses EGCG셲 effectiveness for inhibiting atherosclerosis. Study groups of men 30 years and older who consumed between 2-4 cups of green tea per day ran vastly lower risks of coronary atherosclerosis.


    Green tea extract with a high amount of EGCG provides antiobesity activity in humans.
