Green Tea Extract
60 Capsules • 450 mg
This product is a combination of green tea extract and chromium nicotinate glycinate chelate to promote weight loss.

Green tea, unlike black tea, is not fermented, so the active constituents remain unaltered in the herb. The leaves of the tea plant are used for social drinking as well as for therapeutic reasons.

Based on historical Chinese writings, tea was discovered accidentally by an emperor 4,000 years ago. Since then, its intake has been part of the Traditional Chinese Medicine protocol for several physical and mental conditions.

Green tea contains volatile oils, vitamins, minerals, and caffeine, but the main constituents of interest are the polyphenols, particularly the catechin called apigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The polyphenols are believed to be res-
ponsible for most of green tea’s roles in promoting good health.

Several studies have been published demonstrating that the consumption of green tea extract may influence energy metabolism, body weight, and body fat content.

Clinical studies in the USA of catechins (EGCG) have demonstrated an effect on weight loss and fat distribution. These studies were conducted in vitro (test tubes), using mice and later humans. Results of all these studies concluded that constant and high doses of catechins can be effective for promoting weight loss, increasing energy metabolism, and helping in the maintenance of lost weight.

In 2009, researchers in the Netherlands found that catechins significantly decreased body weight and maintained body weight after a period of weight loss.

A randomized placebo-controlled trial in China studied the effects of catechins on weight and body composition. The investigation showed that regular consumption of a very-high catechin supplementation of 500 mg to 900 mg daily over 90 days lead to significant reduction in measures such as body weight, waist circumference, and abdominal fat.

Data from human studies performed in Germany indicated that EGCG has the potential to increase fat oxidation in men and therefore contributing to the anti-obesity effects of green tea.

This product also contains chromium chelate. Chromium Chelate is an essential trace mineral that helps the body maintain normal blood sugar levels. It has been studied for its potential role in altering body composition. Preliminary research on animals as well as humans suggests that chromium increases fat loss and promotes a gain in lean muscle tissue. Double-blind research has also reported a reduction in body fat and body weight in people who took 400 mcg of chromium per day for three months.
