Green Tea Contains The Following:

Tannins - A group of simple and complex phenol, polyphenol, and flavonoid compounds. Produced by plants, all of the tannins are relatively resistant to digestion or fermentation. All tannins act as astringents, shrinking tissues and contracting structural Proteins in the skin and mucosa.

What Does This Do For You?

Having a cup of Green Tea after a meal can aid in digestion. Green Tea has been used for thousand of years in Asia as a digestive.

Catechins - Catechins are a category of polyphenols. In Green Tea, catechins are present in significant quantities, more specifically; epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG makes up about 10-50% of the total catechin content and appears to be the most powerful of the catechins - with Antioxidant activity about 25-100 times more potent than Vitamins C and E.

A cup of Green Tea may provide 10-40mg of polyphenols and has Antioxidant activity greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots or strawberries.

What Else Does This Do For You?

Well having a powerful anti-oxidant coursing through your system after a heavy workout is just what you need to curb Free Radical damage.

Flavonoids - Flavonoids are plant pigments, and are the brightly colored chemical constituents found in most fresh fruits and vegetables.

Obviously your workouts will suffer if you are sick.

Theanine - An Amino Acid that produces tranquilizing effects in the brain, theanine is a unique Amino Acid found in the leaves seneca. Theanine is quite different from the polyphenol and catechin Antioxidants for which green tea is typically consumed.

I can personally attest to the good feelings you get after a couple cups of green tea. It leaves you with a peaceful feeling without compromising motivation and mental activity.

Bodybuilding & Fitness Uses

Pre-workout - Green tea is a great alternative to the ECA stack. Yeah I know nothing beats the ECA stack but hear me out. A number of people, including myself do not like how the ECA stack makes us feel.

I get jittery and easily angered for some reason. The green tea is great because it does have some caffeine and the Theanine really relaxes you mentally but lets you perform physically.

Cutting - Research suggests that supplementing with green tea can raise your resting metabolic rate by 3%. In order to get this benefit you must have about 3 glasses a day. If you have a bmi of 2000 or so that means 60 extra calories a day. Why do you see so few obese Asians. Its not the kung-fu. It’s the green tea!

All About Tea

All teas come from the same source. The tea plant is a member of the Camellia family (Camellia sinensis). Black tea, oolong tea, and green tea are all derivatives of this one plant.

It is the way the tea is prepared that determines its color. After the tea plant is picked, it is fermented, and then heated to stop the fermentation process. This fermentation process is responsible for the caffeine content of the tea. The longer it is fermented the more caffeine the tea will have.

Green tea has the least amount of caffeine of all the teas because it is the least fermented. The reason why green tea has the most health benefits is because a longer fermentation process destroys many of the beneficial substances in the tea plant. That is why chugging your Lipton tea is not even remotely comparable to having a cup of green tea (Lipton is made from black tea).
