    From CNW:



    Two researchers, Chantre and Lairon reported that supplementation of a green tea extract standardized at 25% EGCG for three months promoted a 4.6% decrease in body weight and a 4.5% decrease in waist circumference with no changes in diet or exercise. The weight loss was attributed to a direct inhibition of gastric and pancreatic lipases (fat enzymes) and a stimulation of thermogenesis.



    Recent clinical research has documented the weight-loss and antioxidant powers of this natural compound. In a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was discovered that taking a high-potency green tea extract before breakfast, lunch, and dinner increased total 24-hour energy expenditure by 4% and also caused a significant increase in norepinephrine levels.



    The major polyphenols (active compounds) in green tea are catechins, namely, epicatechin, epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin, epicgallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The most effective are EGCG. Be careful when comparing Green Tea supplements, as many have a very low amount of EGCG’s.
