    EGCG

    A caffeine-free EGCG supplement does NOT increase resting metabolism

    A caffeine-free supplement of EGCG (Epigallocatechin-3-gallate) does NOT increase resting metabolism, nor does it increase thermogenesis following a meal according to a new study from researchers at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, USA.

    These results were the opposite of what these researchers expected.

    "Contrary to our hypothesis, we found no stimulatory effect of short-term administration on either [ resting metabolic rate ] or [the thermic effect of food ], the researchers concluded. Read the entire article | Email this article
