Epigallocatechin Gallate

Also-called-like-this: EGCG
What-it-does: antioxidant, soothing

So now you know that EGCG is the magic ingredient in green tea. It's the most active polyphenol that green tea owes most of its magic properties to. It's a fantastic antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic agent. Be happy, if you spot it on the ingredient list.
