Natural Caffeine and Weight Loss
While the effects of caffeine on weight loss and energy have been well understood for decades, recent studies have shown that the addition of EGCG (the antioxidant in green tea) along with moderate doses of caffeine have a profound effect on fat loss and energy expenditure when compared to caffeine alone or a placebo. This means that not only do those who supplement with green tea get the powerful protection of some of the most potent antioxidants in nature, but even more fat blasting power from the caffeine buzz that so many of us enjoy.
In fact, the antioxidants (catechins) in green tea have been shown to inhibit the breakdown of norepinephrine, which potentially makes the benefits and effects from traditional stimulants remain active for longer periods of time (i.e. increased metabolic rate, fat utilization). Studies have also suggested that green tea may even directly inhibit the main enzymes involved in fat storage.
While nearly 4-5 cups of strongly brewed green tea are needed to receive the ideal dose of caffeine and EGCG, the same effect can be felt with a single serving of NutraKey’s micronized, ultra concentrated green tea formula.
