Prevent combines nature’s most powerful pigments and antioxidants as well as the strongest form of green tea with cutting-edge nutraceuticals for the ultimate disease-protecting formula.
Prevent and the Power of Green Tea
The green tea in Prevent has a special therapeutic charge of 75% epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)—a powerful polyphenol that helps fight disease.
What Makes Prevent Great
Green Tea, 75% EGCG — The EGCG found in green tea has incredible special properties when it comes to keeping you healthy. It’s been proven to be powerful in treating a wide range of conditions. The polyphenols in green tea are catechin, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin gallate, and proanthocyanidins. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is viewed as the most significant active component.
The leaf bud and first leaves are richest in epigallocatechin gallate. Green-tea polyphenols are potent antioxidant compounds that have demonstrated to be 100 times greater antioxidant protection than vitamin C and 25 times greater than vitamin E at protecting cells and their genetic material, DNA, from damage believed to be linked to disease. EGCG carries twice the antioxidant punch of resveratrol found in red wine. In addition to exerting antioxidant activity on its own, green tea may increase the activity of antioxidant enzymes.
Curcumin, 95% Curcuminoids — Antioxidant properties of turmeric and curcumin are undergoing intense research. Tests in Germany found that “[a]ll fractions of the turmeric extract preparation exhibited pronounced antioxidant activity[…]” Turmeric extract tested more potent than garlic, Devil’s claw, and salmon oil.
Resveratrol 50% is a type of antioxidant polyphenol called a phytoalexin, a class of compounds produced as part of a plant’s defense system against disease. It is produced in the plant in response to an invading fungus, stress, injury, infection, or ultraviolet irradiation. Red wine contains high levels of resveratrol, as do grapes, raspberries, peanuts, and other plants.
Zeaxanthin 20% is an antioxidant that destroys harmful free radicals, generated by exposure to light and which initiate oxidative damage in the eyes and skin. These xanthophylls provide protection against free radicals that can damage cells and DNA and thus cause disease.
Astaxanthin 1.5% kills free radicals in your body.
