To burn fat, daily consumption of green tea is not harmful

To burn fat, daily consumption of green tea is not harmful.

Its effect antioxidant is 100 times more effective than vitamin C and helps to burn up 70 calories a day

Last week I was in Lima Camilla Passarella, market development manager of the company DSM, but it is also food engineer. Gave a talk about the benefits of green tea and how the industry has managed to concentrate epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the active compound most powerful antioxidant .

During his visit, presented the green tea extract, called Teavigo. What is it?
Studies report the benefits of green tea. This happens because it has polyphenols [plant chemicals], and within the catechin [a type of plant pigments with antioxidant properties], and within that EGCG, which is the most active compound with antioxidant in tea green. The company DSM has managed to refine, purify and concentrate the EGCG.


But the benefit is also achieved by consuming green tea the traditional way?
Yes, but a green tea leaf has 5% of EGCG. The extract is 32%. But both have caffeine . However, Teavigo EGCG has 90% and has no caffeine or other polyphenols that could harm the body.

Why is it important to consume antioxidants?
Because they reduce the risk of degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular , cognitive impairment, and so on.

What's true you should not consume the same product for a long time because it can be harmful?
In the case of green tea, it can be consumed daily and one example is the Japanese, who consume more than 10 cups a day. And with daily consumption that will be the benefits. Although everything in excess is not good and you need a balanced diet, there are no problems in consuming green tea daily.

Moreover, one of its benefits is that it helps you lose weight ...
As a powerful antioxidant, helps reduce oxidation of fat measurements. But it is only an additional aid to lose weight.

Why black tea does not have the same benefits as green if the two come from the same plant?
Black tea green tea is fermented and oxidized. As this process goes through, he loses the EGCG and therefore is less effective when we think of the benefits we can offer.

The antioxidant in green tea is 100 times more effective than vitamin C and 25 times better than vitamin E in protecting cells from damage associated with cancer. Helps to burn up to 70 calories a day.
