How does Green Tea work?
Green tea is known to contain a high concentration of polyphenols, like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants in the body.
These powerful antioxidants protect and nourish the body as they work to get rid of harmful substances and promote healthy body functions. They also help to reduce inflammation in the body and work to prevent the development of some degenerative diseases such as certain types of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases.
It contains caffeine, a powerful supplement that promotes focus, concentration and wakefulness.
Alongside caffeine, green tea also contains L-Theanine a powerful nootropic that is highly synergistic with caffeine, increasing the effectiveness of caffeine while at the same time reducing negative symptoms that caffeine can produce such as jitters and overstimulation.
It can help burn fat through boosting metabolic rates and increasing the amount of fat oxidation that occurs within the body.
