Green Tea extract useful for weight management

Green Tea extract useful for weight management

A study published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a low dose of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an extract commonly found in green tea, helped overweight and obese men (with an average BMI of 31) increase fat oxidation by 33 per cent.

The study also found that green tea’s natural caffeine must be present for the compound to work its fat usage properties.
