Consider green tea extract to improve your health

Green tea has been a popular ingredient used primarily as a drink, but research into its benefits made green tea part of healthy diet to promote a wide array of benefits.

It’s a great alternative to coffee for that caffeine buzz, since each cup contains anywhere between 35-100 milligrams of caffeine, depending on how long it’s been steeped. Green tea is also a great source of antioxidants, called catechins, that help support immune function, cardiovascular health, and fat loss.

Numerous epidemiological studies show that regular consumption of green tea has a net positive effect on overall health. Even as a supplement, green tea can be a worthwhile addition to your dietary habits, especially if your goal is fat loss. The primary difference between drinking tea and taking it in pill form is dosage. In supplement form the dosage is typically much higher.

In most cases, green tea extract (GTE) is effective as a fat-burner via a complex cellular mechanism involving catechins and caffeine. The addition of caffeine to the potent mix of catechins improves the production of noradrenaline, giving you enough confidence to think take almost any obstacle.

The simple mentioning of “fat loss” is a clear hint about you might waste your money, but there are actually aspects to consider. The fat-burning potential of GTE is found in those 400-500 milligrams of ECGC—the most active catechin—per day. That’s about 4-5 cups of strongly brewed tea.

The extra effect is that green tea’s fat-burning effectiveness relies on the user not being heavily resistant to caffeine. In other words, if you drink at least 3 cups of caffeinated drinks daily, green tea’s fat-burning effects would be less significant. With these things in mind, keep realistic expectations of weight loss with GTE supplements.
