EGCG – a catechin derived
from green tea
Green tea contains many beneficial ingredients, including catechins. They belong to the group of polyphenols and give the green tea its bitter taste. One of the most interesting catechins is Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).
EGCG is highly concentrated in the leaves of green tea.
Many experts are excited by the profile of EGCG as a substance well tolerated by humans.
Currently, more than 80 clinical studies with EGCG are listed on clinicaltrials.gov

tigovit is the natural EGCG
source in a capsule
tigovit consists of selected, high-quality green tea extracts with a naturally high content of EGCG. tigovit was developed specifically to protect the valuable contents of the green tea including EGCG and other catechins and making them more available to the human body.
tigovit contains carefully selected ingredients, all of which are subject to constant residue analyses. tigovit is produced in Germany with respect to highest hygiene standards.
When green tea is consumed as a drink, the human body absorbs very few catechins such as EGCG.
Of e.g. 300mg EGCG in tea infusions, only a small fraction is absorbed by the human body.
This means that only by drinking green tea is hardly any EGCG available.
For the first time tigovit offers the possibility to take green tea as an extract combined with other natural substances.
The valuable ingredients of green tea are protected and thus preserved.
