Weight loss

Green tea naturally contains two well-known fat blasting ingredients, caffeine, a stimulant and ECGE, an antioxidant. The antioxidant ECGC helps to inhibit the hormone that breaks down norepinephrine, when this happens norepinephrine increases in our body. Why is that important? Well norepinephrine is the hormone that signals our cells to break down fat so the more norepinephrine released into our bodies the higher and stronger the signal. Caffeine works in excellent synergy with ECGC, it is a natural stimulant that will improve exercise performance, increase our metabolisms and help aid in the breakdown of fat. With these two ingredients the results are phenomenal.

Green tea will also reduce our appetites which mean we eat fewer calories without even trying!

Health Benefits

Not only does Green Tea X50 help us to lose weight, which is a major health benefit alone, it also provides us with many other health benefits. The major of these benefits is the high amounts of antioxidants. Antioxidants fight against free radicals that enter our bodies; these nasty molecules are everywhere, in our air, in our food and even in our sunshine. Free radicals can cause rapid ageing, damage to cells and our DNA, heart disease, stroke and cancer. Antioxidants quickly sweep through our bodies and neutralise free radicals which will prevent any further damage. This is why antioxidants are so important for our health and well being. Green Tea X50 will also remove stubborn fat from around our organs which greatly reduces our risk of heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes and other obesity related illnesses.
