What is it used for?
Green tea has been used in traditional oriental medicine for many centuries in different presentations.
However, current scientific research has determined that despite its effectiveness in presentations such as tea or direct consumption, the most appropriate and efficient intake is that in which it is in the form of extract and therefore, in encapsulated form, since its dose is easily adjustable for our objectives.
On the other hand, caffeine is a powerful stimulator of the nervous system since it blocks the adenosine receptors, a compound responsible for generating fatigue and drowsiness that appears after a long time of intense exercise or after the generation of a continuous fatigue. At the same time, the stimulant effect of caffeine is powerful, helping also to lose weight and to improve physical and cognitive performance thanks to the release of catecholamines such as adrenaline that keeps us connected and helps the development of attentional focus and intense activity.
On the other hand, the consumption of caffeine together with EGCG in effective doses seems to have a synergistic effect, that is to say, that its consumption together has better positive effects than its isolated consumption, helping in this way that the stimulation achieved by these products is greater, obtaining a more efficient weight and fat loss.
This phenomenon is due to the fact that egcg, in addition to having a stimulating effect, is capable of helping caffeine to be more bioavailable by blocking the enzyme in charge of its metabolism, so that we will thus have caffeine with an amplified effect, which we will be able to take advantage of as it is more powerful.
Finally, it is important to note that the optimal doses of egcg should be considered according to this and the amount of catechins, normally the egcg should be at 50% of the green tea extract, so that 800 mg of green tea extract will contain 400 mg of egcg or what is the same, we will find the extract standardized to 50% of the main active ingredient.
In turn doses of 400 mg of egcg and 300 mg of caffeine are considered effective and synergistic, therefore, within the requirements established for a good egcg, this product has the appropriate characteristics in dosage and composition.
