Katja, what is tigovit and what are its ingredients?
Tigovit is a highly concentrated organically-grown green tea extract with EGCG, Ester C (Vitamin C) and Bioperine. EGCG refers to a catechin Epigallocatechin-3-gallate. Studies show EGCG may be beneficial for many conditions as blood pressure, cholesterol, prostate, or female issues like Uternie fibroids. They also show the addition of Ester C and Bioperine allows the body to absorb the EGCG more effectively. Tigovit is completely vegan and decaffeinated with no fillers, pesticides or heavy metals. One capsule of tigovit is equivalent to about four cups of green tea.
How did you get involved with a German company and what would you like to share about your own experience with uterine fibroids?
I suffered with uterine fibroids for many years and in 2015 I had a procedure called a UFE that actually worked. I was so pleased that I wanted to share my success with women in Germany (my home country) where this procedure was rare. I began a fibroid group on Facebook in Germany. The group quickly grew to well over 1,000. I shared information with the group and learned a lot in return. Women in the German group were raving about tigovit relieving their fibroid symptoms and even shrinking their fibroids. Then, in 2017, I learned I had new fibroids and they were growing. I did some research and discovered a study that indicated the EGCG in Green Tea Extract could shrink fibroids. Through the group, I had become friends with Tanja Hohenester, the founder and owner of tigovit. I had nothing to lose so I ordered tigovit from Tanja. It helped me tremendously with my symptoms and my next ultrasound showed my fibroids had shrunk. Tanja offered me the distributorship of tigovit for the U.S. and North America. After more research, I learned that EGCG was helpful for so many things beyond fibrodis and that tigovit has a unique and superior product. I accepted her offer.
What was it like participating at the world’s largest naturopathic Anti-Aging Conference in Las Vegas in December with Tanja Hohenester, the owner of tigovit?
We were very impressed by the overwhelming feedback from medical practitioners who visited our booth. We have since received orders from all over the country and Canada. Tanja had never traveled to the U.S. before. She was particularly impressed with the view from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
What can you share about your newest product tigosol?
Tigosol is a powerful Probiotic with Vitamin D and ECGC. Each chewable lozenge contains one billion spores of a patented Bacillus subtillis bacterium, 1,000 IU of Vitamin D3, and 30 milligrams of green tea extract (EGCG). All of these ingredients help to create new gut bacteria and strengthen the immune system. Tigosol can also improve digestion. It may even help strengthen the connection between the brain and gut. Many seniors are Vitamin D deficient and that’s true even in the sunshine state. Visit our website to learn more.
Where did you grow up in Germany, and what brought you to Venice?
I grew up in East Germany and moved to London to take a position with a large wholesale travel company. On one of my business trips to Vienna, I met an American man who, two years later, became my husband. Lou and I lived in Colorado for a while and moved to Venice in 2013.
What are some of your other interests and what would you like to share about your yoga classes on the beach?
I grew up loving classical music including early baroque. I love visiting gardens and parks and taking pictures of nature. One of the things that fascinated me most after moving here was beach yoga. As a result, Lou and I became certified yoga teachers and we started teaching yoga on Manasota Beach and North Jetty Beach. The beauty of our classes is they are for anyone regardless of experience. We work on balance, flexibility, awareness, breathing, and strength.
