  • Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)
  • Epicatechin gallate (ECG)


Green Tea Polyphenol

Gene Expression Regulations
DNA methylation – Decreased DNA methylation may initiate oncogenesis. Studies indicate DNA methylation can be reversed by intake of multiple food component, including tea polyphenol

Growth Signals Regulations
Growth factor – Unregulated expression of growth factors signaling may lead to cancerous growth. Tea polyphenol modulate the activity of cell growth signaling pathway to regulate & control growth.

greentea9Green Tea Polyphenol was shown to be effective in the following areas:


  • Prevent LDL oxidation
  • Increase anti-oxidant enzymes like glutathione peroxide, superoxide dismutase
  • Scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS)


  • In vitro studies has demonstrated Green tea polyphenol to arrest inflammatory cytokines.


  • In vivo & In Vitro studies suggest green tea polyphenol effect on antithrombotic is mainly via antiplatelet activity.

Cholesterol Lowering Effects

  • Green Tea Polyphenols are reported to reduce serum cholesterol levels and prevent accumulation of cholesterol in liver & heart tissues.


Health Benefits of Fermented Rice Germ
Immune Booster


Rice has been a staple diet since 2500 B.C and was believed to be originated from China and later spread to other parts of Asia like Sri Lanka and India.

Today, China remains the largest rice producing country follow by India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and other parts of Indo-China such as Thailand & Vietnam.

After harvesting, rice are processed in the mill to remove its bran & germ. Recent discovery found rice bran & germ have many functional substances that has potential medicinal, health, cosmetic applications.

Enhance Immunostimulatory Activity
In vitro study found fermented rice germ markedly enhances phagocytotic capacity of rat hepatic macrophages compared to other plants.
