What is Green Tea Extract?

Green tea extract comes from the plant Camellia sinensis. The majority of its benefits are derived from its polyphenol (catechins) content. This extract has positive implications for almost all areas of health including cognition, body composition, and more.*

What is EGCG?

EGCG is the most active polyphenol in this extract—it is also the most studied. [1] The polyphenols found in in this plant are powerful aids to cellular health, potentially even more so than Vitamin C. [1] The polyphenols are able to neutralize free radicals which can supplement cellular health and promote longevity.* [1] The polyphenol content is what gives this powder its bitter taste.

Green Tea Extract Benefits

Body Composition

When combined with caffeine, green tea promotes natural thermogenesis. This combination works as caffeine increases noradrenaline levels while the green tea inhibits enzymes that break down noradrenaline.* [2,3] This combination is much more effective in caffeine-naïve individuals.

Human studies show that this supplement is able to help you manage your body composition whether you exercise or not. [4,5] However, results are much greater when it is paired with a fitness regimen. This product can also promote your endurance, allowing you to exercise longer.* [6]

Nootropic Benefits

In one animal study, green tea extract was able to supplement learning and memory. [7] Green tea can also benefit cognition via its relaxation promoting benefits.* [8]

Synergy

There are ways to improve the benefits of green tea extract. One such way is to combine it with fish oil. Fish oil increases green tea extracts bioavailability. [9] Quercetin can enhance its bioavailability as well. [10]

Caffeine Content

A 350mg serving of this powder contains up to 30mg of caffeine.

Green Tea Extract Dosage

The recommended dosage is 350mg per day. This is equal to a 1/8 tsp scoop.
