You now know green tea is rich in Epigallocatechin 3-gallate or commonly called EGCG. It is a potent antioxidant that provides protection against cell damage and prevents cancer, heart disease, inflammation, and several other diseases. But it is best known for its ability to burn fat. Research collaboration between Japan and the U.S. found that a group of obese people treated with EGCG lost more belly fat than a control group that did not get EGCG within a 12 week period. Research by a German group found that even a low dose of green tea consumed after a meal resulted in burning fat. Many other similar studies can be found on the Internet.
Researchers believe that EGCG helps to increase metabolism that takes away energy and burn more fat. Some believe that caffeine content in green tea result in fat oxidation but others believe that it is a result of other properties contained in green tea. This is why Cellan Diet Pills contain 100 percent green tea extract to provide your body with maximum fat oxidation.
