Decaffeinated A recent clinical study (Am J Clin Nutr 2005; 81: 122-9) investigated the effect of catechins from green tea extract on body fat reduction and the relation between oxidized LDL and body fat variables. The researchers concluded that daily consumption of tea with high catechins (caffeine minimized) for 12 weeks reduced body fat. The findings suggest that high catechin intake may be useful in weight management.
The primary constituents of green tea are the polyphenols, particularly the catechin epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The polyphenols are the major actives responsible for green teaÍs benefits in promoting good health.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that standardized extracts of green tea exhibit potent antioxidant activity.
Decaffeinated green tea extracts are well tolerated.
