Product details

GREENSELECT® is a complex formulation using patented Phytosome® technology to combine green tea extract with Soy Phospholids for improved bioavailability.

GREENSELECT® PHYTOSOME® is supported by 2 independent human studies showing its beneficial effects on weight management and on general health when associated with diet.

The effectiveness of a moderate intake of Greenselect® on the antioxidative status, on healthy blood profiles, addressing to oxidative stress as well as the activity of antioxidant enzymes on lymphocytes have been investigated. The importance of demonstrating the antioxidant effects of tea in human beings is emphasized by the evidence that catechins are extensively metabolized in vivo and that the antioxidant and biological activities of their metabolites may differ from those of their original compound.

The weight loss promotion appears to be sustained by the thermogenic effect exerted by galloyl catechinic derivatives. GREENSELECT®
PHYTOSOME® has been tested on a multicentric trial against a low calorie diet alone to assess its capability to promote weight loss.

Clinical studies on Greenselect® Phytosome®

Weight loss promotion of Greenselect® Phytosome® on overweight patients

One hundred overweight patients were treated with 150 mg of Greenselect® Phytosome® twice daily (300 mg/day). Along the study all patients (treated and placebo) were put onto a low calories diet (1250-1350 Kcal for women and 1650-1750 Kcal for men) distributed in at least 4 meals per day. Parameters such as body weight, body mass index, waistline, total cholesterol, basal glycemia and total triglycerides have been measured at the beginning, after 45 days and after 90 days (end of the study). The average weight loss was of 6 kg in the diet only group and 14 kg in the treated group. Accordingly, relevant results have been reported in terms of body mass index, waistline and blood parameters. Greenselect®Phytosome® provides clinically demonstrated support in weight management.

Clinical studies on Greenselect®

Effectiveness of Greenselect® on improvement of antioxidant defenses in plasma

Greenselect® was administered at a dosage of 160 mg/b.i.d. (320 mg/day) to 24 healthy female volunteers held on a controlled diet, for six weeks’ treatment.

At the end of the treatment, the subjects treated with Greenselect® had a significantly lower LDL cholesterol level, while the Total Antioxidant Activity (TAA) was significantly increased compared to control subjects.
It is noticeable that blood samples were obtained 12 hours after the last consumption, indicating that the effect on the antioxidative status of plasma persists at least for that period of time. When tea consumption is regular, in fact, the mean plasma concentration of catechins reaches a steady state significantly higher than the baseline levels, and remains for at least 12 hours after the last ingestion.
The results of this study suggest that a moderate intake of Greenselect® in healthy subjects improves antioxidant defenses in plasma and protects lymphocytes from DNA oxidative damage.

Health Benefits

Greenselect Phytosome contains all the vitamins, minerals and essential nutrients of green tea, in a more bioavailable and concentrated form. This gives it all the health benefits, plus some of its own:

- Increases calorie expenditure by inhibiting the hormone that prevents your body burning surplus fat. In other words – it helps you lose weight!

- Speeds up your metabolism, giving you a welcome boost of energy during exercise. Regular green tea extract supplementation can help improve your performance at sports, while running and at the gym.

- Reduces anxiety and stress, making you feel more relaxed and lowering your adrenal response. (by means of the amino acid L-Theanine)

- Supports healthy cognitive functions, helping with memory retention. Long-term, green tea use may help shield your brain against developing Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s disease.

- The strong antioxidants in green tea disrupt the actions of free radicals, preserving cell structure and giving an anti-ageing effect. They also reduce the risk of certain cancers, including breast cancer, colon cancer and prostate cancer.

- Lowers blood pressure and reduces cholesterol, reducing the risk of heart disease and heart attack.

- As an anti-inflammatory, green tea supplements can aid recovery after exercise, speed up healing and mitigate the effects of arthritis.

- Protects vision and can help prevent the onset of certain eye diseases, such as glaucoma.

- Improves bone density and recovery of healthy bone growth after injury.

 

Greenselect Phytosome Vs Green Tea Extract

If you already drink green tea or supplement with green tea extract, you may be wondering why you should try Greenselect Phytosome? While there are benefits to both types of supplement, there are some important differences, which you will see below:

 

  • Greenselect Phytosome contains double the concentration of EGCG and other beneficial tea catechins compared to green tea extract – between 19% and 25% polyphenol content, with 13% EGCG!
  • The EGCG is twice as bioavailable as in a standard green tea extract, meaning your body can absorb the nutrients quicker and in greater quantities.
  • Greenselect Phytosome is effectively caffeine free (< 0.1% caffeine): an important difference to green tea extract, which does contain caffeine. It is therefore suitable for use at any time of day, and for people following a caffeine free detox programme.

 

Use & Dosage

The enhanced weight control characteristics of Greenselect Phytosome make it a great choice for people who want to lose weight in a hurry, or for obese individuals that want to control their weight and have been disappointed with the results of other supplements.
