About Green Tea Supplements

Green Tea is derived from the plant Camellia sinensis, which is also where black, oolong and white tea are derived. The difference between these types of teas are the part of the plant used and the processing method. Green Tea has been steadily growing in popularity due to the immense amount of scientific research that has been put into this interesting plant. And the more scientists research and conduct clinical trials, the more that is discovered about the biological effects. And you do not have to like the taste of a hot cup of green tea in order to take it, as it is comes in a wide range of forms, including tablets, capsules and flavoured powders.

 

 

Green Tea contains powerful antioxidants, which help to neutralise free-radicals. It also a useful anti-viral compound that can be taken to help fight off viruses, such as the common cold. In addition, Green Tea contains a group of natural plant-chemicals called catechins, one of which is epigallocatechin-3-0-gallate (EGCG). This compound has been demonstrated in clinical trials to increase the basal metabolic rate over a 24hr period, which means that it naturally increases the rate at which we burn calories, making it a helpful natural way to maintain body weight, or also useful for weight-loss programs. This was reported in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 1999. 


 

Another fascinating feature of Green Tea is a rare and specialised amino acid called L-Theanine. This amino acid has been scientifically researched and found to stimulate alpha brain wave activity. These types of brain waves are useful for promoting calm and reducing anxiety. It has been demonstrated that this occurs by reductions in the binding of L-Glutamic acid to the glutamate receptors in the brain, as reported in Biological Psychiatry in 2007.


 

Green Tea supplements have a wide range of applications, both for sports nutrition, wellness and body composition management.
