Product Description

Inflammation is a natural process that affects every cell  and organ in the body. As we age, maintaining a balanced inflammatory response becomes increasingly critical to  guarding our whole-body health.1-3 Fortunately, there’s something we  can do every day to support this process at a deep molecular level.

Cytokine Suppress™  with EGCG provides two natural  food ingredients long used in traditional Asian cuisine and medicine that have  the ability to promote a healthy inflammatory immune response.4-6 Key constituents found in mung beans and  green tea support the natural  process of the immune system’s inflammatory activity. This potent benefit is  delivered by the novel flavonoids and other molecules found primarily in the  seed coat of the mung bean,4,7 and the compound EGCG  (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), the major beneficial component in green tea.5

Acting together, these mung bean and green tea compounds  help regulate levels, among those within the normal range, of a protein molecule  known as HMGB1.4-6 This molecule is responsible for controlling the signaling compounds known as cytokines that  generate inflammation.8,9 Also, mung bean seed coat extract has been  shown to support the body’s natural antioxidant defense system.7

The result of this beneficial modulatory support is a healthy and  balanced inflammatory response—which is particularly important as we  age. Life Extension® Cytokine Suppress™ with  EGCG supports healthy inflammatory levels.4-6,8,9
