More than just a delightful beverage, green tea has an established reputation for general health enhancement. Abundantly endowed with polyphenols, this major class of health enhancing plant phytochemicals delivers benefits in the antioxidant, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory, and fat weight loss categories. Green tea polyphenols are natural substances that offer weight management support, as well as antioxidant protection. MetaSlim® Green Tea Extract contains a minimum of 80 percent polyphenol content. Green tea polyphenols support weight management in three ways. First, they prolong thermogenesis, the burning of dietary fuels (sugar & fat) beyond basic metabolic energy needs. Thermogenesis is a biological mechanism to help maintain body weight. Second, green tea polyphenols have been shown to increase the percent of fat-fuel within thermogenesis, so that more fat is be burned with green tea polyphenols than if they were not present. Third, green tea polyphenols reduce fat absorption by inhibiting digestive breakdown of fat. Green tea also contains some caffeine, which also helps prolong thermogenesis. Green tea's overall effect is to support weight management in conjunction with sensible dietary modification and modest exercise.
