Green tea has been recommended by countless dietitians for both its weight loss and antioxidant properties. This is because of its composition of polyphenols (antioxidants found in plants), the primary one being Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). EGCG specifically reduces inflammation caused by UV rays and improves liver health, which is great for long days on the trail/road.
On another note, if you’re trying to maintain a low race weight during competition season or drop a few winter pounds, Green tea phytosome can help. It will increase metabolism for fat burning and suppress appetite. These polyphenols have also been proven to fight off cancer growth at a molecular level, so if you don’t like the drink this is a great way to reap the benefits without having to plug your nose.
Take 1 capsule daily or as recommended by your performance professional.
