When it comes to losing weight, diet and exercise work synergistically to deliver results. Focusing on just exercise and not your diet, or vice versa, will not give you the results you’re looking for because your body counts on both your physical health and nutrients absorbed to be healthy and beautiful.
However, not everyone’s body is built the same. Even with an exercise routine and diet plan, stubborn fats can be, well, stubborn and refuse to budge, especially around the tummy. That’s when you can look into bringing in a third element to help your weight loss journey – health supplements.
If you don’t already know, green tea is brimming with health benefits. As a powerful source of antioxidants, research has linked green tea consumption with a reduced risk of certain types of cancers. It has also been shown to reduce blood sugar level and improve insulin sensitivity, making it a strong ally against diabetes.
But one of the most discussed benefits of green tea is its weight loss properties. One of the most beneficial phytonutrients in green tea is polyphenol called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). With its anti-obesity effects, it can help you lose weight by boosting your metabolism and breaking down visceral fats that sit within our bodies.
Bringing together the power of nature and science, the Nutrilite Green-T Plus harnesses the weight loss active ingredient of green tea, namely epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), in a convenient tablet form.
Unfortunately, the beneficial polyphenol in green tea is chemically unstable and cannot be easily absorbed by our bodies. Most of the time, EGCG is simply eliminated from the body - so you don’t get to experience the full benefits of this compound.
However, to overcome this limitation, Nutrilite Green-T Plus utilises the Greenselect Phytosome Technology to maximise the health benefits of a polyphenol like EGCG. By binding polyphenols such as EGCG, the phytosomes help stabilise and deliver the compound into our bodies effectively.
Greenselect Phytosome is a green tea extract that is devoid of caffeine and formulated in lecithin to improve the absorption and bioavailability of ECGC so that you get the maximum benefits.
Studies have shown that Greenselect Phytosome Technology, coupled with a low-calorie diet and exercise, helps support waist-size reduction and weight loss.
Every tablet of Nutrilite Green-T Plus contains 50mg of Greenselect Phytosome green tea with the active ingredient of EGCG measuring in at 20mg. Plus, the Greenselect Phytosome green tea extract is caffeine-free, so you won’t be kept up all night while experiencing the weight management benefits.

Commonly known as kelp, brown algae or Laminaria Japonica, is a source of fucoxanthin, a carotenoid that has shown promise as a form of treatment and in the prevention of obesity since it may inhibit the build-up of abdominal fat and reduce fat build-up in the liver.
When combined, both the Greenselect Phytosome green tea extract and fucoxanthin from brown algae helps increase energy expenditure. Thus, improving your body's metabolism and making it possible for you to burn more fats.
So, with all these benefits packed into a single, small tablet, it’s no surprise that Nutrilite Green-T Plus may be just what you need to take your weight loss journey to the next level.
Health advisory: It is recommended to check with your physician on what is the appropriate EGCG dosage you should consume in a day. Adverse effects may occur if an inappropriate amount of EGCG is consumed. This dietary supplement can be a valuable addition to an exercise programme and healthy diet to attain a healthy and sustainable weight loss and/or to achieve optimal health. Results may vary individually depending on lifestyle and health conditions.
