Green tea extract
Green tea and its extract are derived from the plant Camellia sinensis. The active components in green tea belong to the family of polyphenols (catechins and flavonoids), known for their powerful antioxidant action and their anti-inflammatory properties. Green tea extract has become a quite popular ingredient in weight loss and fat burning supplements. The combination of catechins, flavonoids and caffeine leads to an increase in thermogenesis, a process that assists in the burning of calories and fat.
