Green tea has played a role in health for a great part of human history. Its healthful benefits were recognized by the Chinese over 4000 years ago, when it was used for lack of energy, digestive problems, headache, and immune support, to name a few. One of the main reasons is the antioxidant properties of polyphenols, one of the constituents of green tea that give it its health benefits. Current research has shown green tea to be beneficial in assisting in weight loss. The only drawback to green tea is that to get any sort of therapeutic benefit, one would have to drink nearly ten cups of tea a day. This is why I’m proud to offer Primal Power Method Green Tea Extract, 250 mg, providing all the benefits of the beverage in an easy to swallow vegetarian capsule.
In addition, green tea could raise your energy expenditure, and possibly even help battle obesity, according to a new study.
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), is a compound found in green tea, which was shown to increase fat oxidation (burn fat for energy) by 33 percent!
In numerous studies EGCG has been shown to be a key component in green teas ability to assist in weight loss.
There are a number of ways the EGCG can assist you in your weight loss goals:
- It could increase metabolism and fat oxidation
- It could increase fat excretion
- It could inhibit fat cell development
Previous studies indicate that epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) may also be helpful in preventing and/or treating:
- Prostate cancer
- High blood lipids
- Cerebral thrombus
- Pain and inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis
Green Tea Boosts Brain Health
In a new study of 12 healthy volunteers, who consumed a beverage containing 27.5 grams of green tea extract showed increased connectivity between the parietal and frontal cortex of the brain compared to those who drank a non-green tea beverage.
The increased activity improved performance on working memory tasks, and the researchers believe the results suggest green tea may be useful for treating cognitive impairments, to including dementia. The study authors go on to say:
“Our findings provide first evidence for the putative beneficial effect of green tea on cognitive functioning, in particular, on working memory processing at the neural system level by suggesting changes in short-term plasticity of parieto-frontal brain connections.
Modeling effective connectivity among frontal and parietal brain regions during working memory processing might help to assess the efficacy of green tea for the treatment of cognitive impairments in psychiatric disorders such as dementia.”
The researchers also indicate the effects could have been strengthened if the volunteers had consumed a pure green tea extract, as opposed to a green tea-fortified beverage. And that is one of the great things about tea – if you don’t enjoy it as a beverage (or if you only drink it on occasion), you can still get the health benefits by taking it as a daily supplement.
