USC scientists use Pharmanex ingredients to show health benefits of green tea

Pharmanex's green tea extract was the focus of a study conducted at the USC Center for Human Nutrition on the health benefits of green tea. The study, entitled "Green tea extract and (-)-epigallocatechin-3-gallate inhibit hypoxia- and serum-induced HIF-1A protein accumulation and VEGF expression in human cervical carcinoma and hepatoma cells," was published in the May, 2006 edition of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics. The study focuses on the astonishing health implications of green tea extract and its major component epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG).


Scientists at the USC Center use (and have used in the past) Pharmanex products to conduct their research because Pharmanex products maintain the highest standards of quality and purity. Every batch of every Pharmanex product—regardless of the country in which it is sold—undergoes the same rigorous checks by Pharmanex scientists as established in the Pharmanex® 6S Quality Process; our immutable standards that ensure safe, quality products that are scientifically substantiated.


6S® Quality Process—the Measurable Difference
Pharmanex uses proprietary technology in its manufacturing processes to maintain tight quality controls through all stages of product development. The key to consistent quality is the Pharmanex® 6S Quality Process (selection, sourcing, structure, standardization, safety, substantiation), the basis of the company's pharmaceutical approach to product development. The attention to detail, strict scientific testing, and commitment to quality ensures that every Pharmanex® product is absolutely safe and effective. The 6S® Quality Process has enabled Pharmanex to become an industry leader in quality and efficacy.


Tegreen 97®
Tegreen 97 is a proprietary, highly concentrated extract of the catechins found in green tea. Each Tegreen 97 capsule contains the catechin equivalent of approximately seven cups of green tea and is 99.5% caffeine free. Catechins support healthy cell function while providing antioxidant protection to critical cell structures such as DNA. Demonstrated to cause a thermogenic effect, catechins also enhance the body's metabolic rate.
