Antioxidants are something that all health-conscious individuals seek from such foods as raw fruits, green veggies, and dark chocolate.

Out of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognized for its cancer fighting properties. Scientists have found that Matcha Green Tea contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market.
