It arms patients with the tools and knowledge they need to communicate better with physicians about using the best high-tech and alternative treatments. At the same time, it helps doctors balance their skepticism of complementary and alternative approaches with open-mindedness.

EGCG Ultra (70%) is the most potent extract of green tea currently available. Research shows that the potent antioxidant EGCG may be beneficial for heart and circulatory health and support of the body's natural resistance to cancer of the bladder, breast, colon, esophagus, lung, pancreas, prostate, skin and stomach.
Other research indicates that EGCG may benefit joint health and bowel resistance to inflammation due to its anti-inflammatory characteristics, and may assist in weight loss since studies indicate that it may increase metabolic rate without side effects.
