Lose weight with green teaNew York City, N.Y, November 8, 2010 — >A recent study has discovered that daily intake of green tea extract may increase energy and aid with weight loss.
The scientists from the University of Medicine, Berlin, recruited ten healthy overweight and obese men to participate in the randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind crossover trial.
The men were randomly put into one of five supplement groups: Placebo, low-dose EGCG (300mg), high-dose EGCG (600mg), caffeine (200mg), or EGCG plus caffeine (300mg/200mg). They took the supplements for three days, then had seven days of washing out their system before moving to the next group. All had attended each group by the end of the study.
The results showed that a daily dose of 300 mg of EGCG led to a 33% increase in fat oxidation, whilst a dose of 200 mg caffeine was linked to a 34.5% increase. When male subjects were given a combination of EGCG (300 mg) and caffeine (200 mg), fat oxidation increased by almost 50%, added the researchers.
Green tea catechins have been studied extensively for their potential in aiding weight loss, with the compound epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) highlighted as the key element.
James Betz, founder and CEO of world leading bioceutical firm, Biotivia, said: “We have been researching the weight loss potential of green tea extract for a couple of years now and this study highlights research we have been working on with our weight loss formula, Bio Shape.”
Bio Shape represents a new and powerful multi-faceted approach to the complex and difficult challenge of weight loss. By attacking the two root causes of weight gain, appetite and metabolism, Bio Shape is able to help those people who want to lose at least 15 pounds or more.
