The Power of Green Tea
By Jennifer Morganti, ND, Director of Education for NEEDS

An extract from green tea, called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) may help increase fat oxidation and contribute to weight loss, according to European researchers. A small pilot study looked at the effects of low- and high-dose EGCg on fat metabolism in overweight men. The 300 mg low-dose EGCg stimulated fat oxidation more effectively than the 600 mg dose.

Many other studies have concluded that green tea can help with thermogenesis, or fat burning. One scientist concluded that "consumption of tea might promote weight loss, help maintain body weight following weight loss, and prevent the development of some diseases associated with obesity such as diabetes and fatty liver disease."
