Origin Biomedicinals and our partner, Mitsui Norin & Co.Ltd., Tokyo, are now providing an exclusive Green Tea Extract Capsule called Polyphenon 100 to the North American market-place based on clinical trials performed in Japan. Polyphenon is a high quality tea catechin extracted from natural tea leaves, and Mitsui Norin Co. Ltd. is the first company in the world to succeed in developing an efficient extraction method for this marvelous substance. Mitsui Norin has been providing evidence that Polyphenon works to improve human health both inside and outside of the body. Our studies have been recognized and approved worldwide, and the now the National Cancer Institute of the U.S. have launched important clinical studies, along with Mitsui Norin, of Polyphenon with a view to developing preventatives for cancer. Polyphenon 100 capsules are a high-purity, decaffeinated, daily supplement for people requiring the therapeutic or preventative benefits of green tea catechins. Each capsule provides a well measured dose of 100 mg catechins, suitable for professional prescription for a variety of therapy regimes. Polyphenon 100 capsules are used both as a daily anti-oxidant (recommended dosage – 2 capsules per day) and as a therapeutic agent for the prevention or treatment of a range of indications (up to nine capsules per day). One Polyphenon 100 capsule contains catechins approximately equivalent to 1-2 cups of green tea. Catechins exert a multitude of beneficial effects in the body from the time of their oral intake to the time of excretion. In the oral cavity, catechins prevent various viral airway infections including the influenza virus. Catechins also suppress the growth of bacteria that cause dental caries and dental plaque. In the stomach, catechins inhibit the bacteria, Helicobacter pylori,which causes ulcers and increases the incidence of stomach cancers. In the small intestine,catechins inhibit the release of glucose into the blood stream, thereby helping with the control of type II diabetes and hyperinsulinemia. Catechins were also proven to suppress the storage of fat in the body and liver, and thus are an important ingredient in weight management. Still in the intestines, catechins increase levels of friendly, health supporting bacteria such as lactobacilliand bifidobacteria, while suppressing the putrefying bacteria such as Enterobacteriaceae, enterococci, and clostridia, which are associated with poorm bowel regularity, increased odour, and increased risk of colon cancers. Hundreds of animal and human studies confirm the suppression of carcinogenesis by catechin intake. This includes prevention of cancers of the stomach and colon, as well as the esophagus. Once absorbed into the blood stream, catechins have also been shown to prevent cancers of the breast, prostate, pancreas, liver, lung, skin and blood. Catechins in the human bloodstream also improve the ratio of LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol, thus lowering the chances of oxidative degradation of the cardiovascular circulation system. This helps to prevent heart attacks and strokes and to lower blood pressure. Finally, catechins pass out of the body via the urinary tract and bladder, where they have been recently shown to have an anti-cancer effect on urinary bladder tumours In addition to Polyphenon 100, we are providing people with. Can Tea Max Can Tea MAX was developed at the request of a cancer support group representing people suffering from chronic lymphocytic leukemia. This form of cancer is considered incurable. This group approached Origin to develop a very high-stength lozenge designed to deliver as much catechins (and EGCg, the most potent of the catechins) as possible. It is based on two studies: 1.) A Mayo Clinic in vitro study showing that catechins selectively kill these cancer cells, and 2.) a separate study showing that buccal dosage forms (i.e. held in the mouth) is the most effective means of delivering catechins to the bloodstream. For these reasons, we developed CanTea MAX, which contains our regular green tea extract plus a highly purified (and expensive) EGCg extract. The taste reveals the high catechin content, and is much more astringent than the regular lozeng. If you would like to learn more about Polyphenon 100 and Can Tea Max, please send me a reply.

Wayne, I am interested in learning more about how to obtain the Can tea max lozengers. Please respond to me with a link or something of that sort so that I can get my hands on that stuff. I am convinced that EGCG has potent anit cancer effects especially in CLL where the cancer is not so active and the amount of tumor cells in the blood is not so overwhelming. I understand the MOA of this Molecule and have been taking a supplement called Capsol T which is a combination of Capsicum and Green Tea Extract. I am hoping that the Can Tea Max has a little more punch than the Capsol T although I dont base that bias on any known results for me from taking the Capsol T. It just seems to me that takin something that I know others with CLL are taking would ultimately work in our favor if the results are positive. Thanks, Martin

Hello,

 I have been looking everywhere online for the polyphenon 100 and Max Can Tea losenges and cannot find them for sale.  Can you tell me how I can purchase them?

Also, do you know if the tea used for these products is from Japan or China?

Thanks,

Tom

I would like more information about Can Tea Max.  I have CLL, and applied for the Mayo CLL Green Tea Study, but did not meet the protocols. I am trying to follow the regiment myself, monitored monthly by my encologist.  At Mayo I was told the Mayo study was 4000 miligrams of EGCG, through Polyphenon 100. I am taking 12 capsules of Life Extension Mega Green Tea Extract per day to achieve 4000 mg, with each capsule containing 326.25 mg of EGCG (and a bottle of 100 pills costing $20, member price, which is about 8.33 days worth, or about $2.40 per daily dosage).  This was largest dosage per pill I could find. How does Can Tea Max compare?  Is it better for my purposes, and why?  Is it pill or buccal dosage? How much does it cost, and how much would that be per 4000 mg. EGCG dosage?  How can it be ordered?

thanks for any info.
