Green tea is a very popular supplement in America and Asian countries have used it for centuries for its health benefits. It has been especially studied for weight loss and cardiovascular benefits. Green tea is an excellent source of catechin polyphenols (especially EGCG, a potent antioxidant). All green tea extracts are not the same. Vitabase Green Tea Extract is produced by a European company under strict quality control standards without using harsh solvents. This extract contains 50% catechins.
Green Tea has been studied extensively. Some key points are:
1) It contains powerful antioxidants and also works as an anti-inflammatory.
2) Pairing it with other supplements will increase its effectiveness. These are: a) Quercetin which increases it's absorption by the body (bioavailabilty) and show some preventative properties in lung and kidney cancer. (Examine.com) b) Fish Oil which increases brain cell protection and increases bioavailability. c) Curcumin aka Turmeric which show some protection against developing colon tumors. d) Vitamin C to boost antioxidant properties. e) Caffeine and Ephedrine to increase fat burning potential. And others! (check out Examine.com!) Avoid taking it with carbohydrates as this decreases its absorption.
