Green tea is a type of tea that is made from Camellia Sinensis leaves and buds that have not undergone the same withering and oxidation process used to make oolong teas and black teas.
Green tea extract can promote weight loss, blood sugar regulation, disease prevention, and exercise recovery. It can also help keep skin and the liver healthy, reduce blood fat levels, regulate blood pressure, and improve brain health.
Green tea is loaded with polyphenol antioxidants, including a catechin called EGCG. These antioxidants can have various beneficial effects on health.
Green tea contains less caffeine than coffee but enough to produce an effect. It also contains the amino acid L-Theanine which can work synergistically with caffeine to improve brain function.
Green tea may boost metabolic rate and increase fat burning.
How to consume
To benefit from the athletic performance and anti-fatigue properties of green tea, it is best taken first thing in the morning or 15 - 30 minutes before exercise.
Pre-workouts and fat loss supplements containing green tea should be taken with water before exercise. We recommend a dose of 100 – 150mg of green tea per serve.
Green Tea starts working as soon as it enters the bloodstream, which is typically 15 - 30 minutes after consumption. Users can expect to experience an increase in mental alertness, concentration, and mental focus within this timeframe.
