    EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) from green tea increased fat and protein excretion in the feces of mice fed a high-fat diet according to a study from Germany. Conclusion

    Conclusion: EGCG reduces the amount of food digested, increases the burning of fat, and reduces dietary fat incorporated into tissue

    “Anti-obesity effects of EGCG can be explained by a decreased food digestibility… leading to increased… fat oxidation [following a meal] and reduced incorporation of dietary [fats] into tissues,” the researchers concluded.

     

    Comment: Combine EGCG with caffeine

    Comment: Combine EGCG with caffeine for best results

    Comment: A number of years ago, obesity researcher, Abdul Dulloo, MD, PhD, found that “Green tea extract stimulates brown adipose tissue thermogenesis to an extent which is much greater than can be attributed to its caffeine content per se.”

    The reason for this is that there is an interaction between the caffeine and the catechins such as EGCG found in green tea.

    See the interview with Abdul Dulloo here.

    This interaction was originally posted here.

     

    Some Companies Mistakenly Sell EGCG alone

    Some nutritional companies have missed this point, selling EGCG alone or selling decaffeinated green tea

    Some nutritional companies have missed this important point, selling EGCG alone or selling decaffeinated green tea.

    This is NOT what you want.

    Use regular green tea or oolong tea or even black tea, but avoid the decaffeinated tea or you’ll be missing out on the full benefits.
