Green tea is called 'green' because, unlike black tea, it is not fermented. Green tea contains less theine (caffeine): 2.5% compared to 3.5% for black tea. What's special about green tea in its richness in catechins (12% compared to 2% for black tea). Catechins are the molecules that, together with caffeine, contribute to the thermogenic and anti-fat effects of green tea.
Anti-cancer properties of green tea
The regular intake of green tea reduces the risk of many cancers, especially prostate cancer for men and breast cancer for women.
Rich in antioxidants
The antioxidants in green tea play three roles: they have an effect on your health, provide an improvement in physical performance, and assist fat loss.
Fat loss effects
Green tea inhibits the caloric absorption of dietary fats and sugars, reduces the secretion of insulin (a hormone that promotes weight gain), and works directly on fat cells to prevent them from growing, or even destroying them.
Green tea and physical activity
Green tea improves the body's ability to use its own fats as fuel.

The leaves of this special variety of green tea (Ceylon: Ceylon Cha) are organically grown and selected from small gardens in Sri Lanka.
It is important to use organic raw materials especially when consuming the leaves. Indeed, if, during cultivation, we spray pesticides on these leaves, you will mechanically find traces of them in your supplement (1).
What makes the difference between the various forms of green tea is not the caffeine content but the polyphenols (catechins, epicatechins) and tannins. The secret to preserving polyphenols lies essentially in the drying method (2). By avoiding high temperatures or roasting, all the active molecules are better preserved.In addition, the leaves of Nutrimuscle Organic Ceylon Green Tea are not fermented, they are just steamed and rolled on mats.

Nutrimuscle's Organic Ceylon Green Tea is for:
- Athletes who wish to improve their endurance levels before a training session
- Inactive people, in order to improve their daily life and health
3 capsules per day on average
It's best to take Organic Ceylon green Tea first thing in the morning, before breakfast.
If your goal is fat loss, take 3 to 4 capsules of Nutrimuscle Organic Ceylon green Tea in the morning when you wake up and the same amount at lunchtime.
As with all fat burners, it is best to start moderately, starting with 2 to 3 capsules to see how your body reacts. If all goes well, up your dose by one capsule the following day and repeat as necessary.
Taking very high doses isn't beneficial. Simply stick to a moderate dose that you feel is effective.
Synergies between supplements:
Nutrimuscle Organic Ceylon green Tea reinforces the stimulating and anti-fat effects of Organic Guarana and Organic Yerba Mate.
Adverse reactions between supplements:
Nutrimuscle Organic Ceylon green Tea is not to be taken at the same time as the Omega 3 in order to avoid preventing proper assimilation.

It's rare for consumers to have access to the names of the suppliers of the raw materials that go into the supplements they consume. However, this is essential to ensuring product traceability.
At Nutrimuscle, we use only the highest quality guarana.
Guayapi specialises in wild plants picked by local tribes according to traditions. This organic and certified pesticide-free farming safeguards the environment.
Guayapi respects the quality regulations of many organic and fair-trade certification bodies. It's a far cry from industrial farming, chemical extraction, and GMOs. What matters most to us is the quality of the raw materials, your health, and the results you achieve using our nutritional supplements.
If green tea is said to be "green" it is because, unlike black tea, it is not fermented. Green tea is less rich in theine (caffeine): 2.5% against 3.5% for black tea. Its particularity is based on its richness in catechins (12% against 2% for black tea).
Catechins are molecules which, along with caffeine, contribute to the thermogenic and anti-fat action of green tea.
Green tea shares some of the slimming effects of caffeine by:
- Stimulating thermogenesis (wasting fatty calories in the form of heat);
- Activating the mobilization and oxidation of fats.
But green tea also has its own effects, independent of those of caffeine in:
- Inhibiting the caloric absorption of dietary lipids and sugars;
- Reducing the secretion of insulin (a hormone that promotes weight gain);
- Acting directly on fat cells to prevent them from growing, even destroying them (1 - 2).
These are the catechins that provide its original effects to green tea. The latter therefore does not depend on its caffeine content to be effective, as the following studies demonstrate. Morning, noon and night, men took green tea. The level of their calorie expenditure increased by 4% over 24 hours. This action occurs even with decaffeinated green tea, which proves that it is not caffeine that gives tea this anti-fat property (3).
Ultimately, these effects result in fat loss. For 60 days, overweight people followed a light diet. In addition, they were given decheinated green tea or a placebo. With the latter, the weight loss amounts to 2kg against 5kg with tea (4).
For 12 weeks, overweight men and women took green tea every night (providing 583mg of catechins). No diet was prescribed. This regular intake of green tea induces an average fat loss of 2.3 kg against 500g for the placebo. Fat loss is preferentially located around the waist, which decreases by 4.5% (4).
Anti-cancer action of green tea
Regular intake of green tea decreases the risk of many cancers, especially prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women (6 to 12, to name just a few of the most recent studies). The action of polyphenols is very specific. They only attack cancer cells, not healthy cells (13).
In cancer cells, polyphenols produce an oxidative action in the mitochondria (the powerhouse of cells) which causes the death of the malignant cell. In healthy cells, on the contrary, polyphenols induce the opposite effect by protecting against attacks by free radicals.
Polyphenols also reduce the proliferation of blood vessels that supply cancer cells. By blocking their development, polyphenols starve cancer cells that die for lack of nutrients (13).
Thus, green tea works at all stages by preventing the onset of cancer and reducing the proliferation of malignant cells once it starts (14 to 20).
Warning: Reducing cancer risk does not mean zero risk! You have to adapt your lifestyle by eating healthy and without excess, by practicing regular physical activity and by eliminating the risk factors (tobacco, alcohol, overweight, ...).
Another green benefit is that it helps prevent joint pain (5).
Synergy Green tea and physical activity
For 10 weeks, men with regular physical activity received daily green tea (584mg of catechins). Compared to a placebo, the energy contribution of fats increased by 6% thanks to tea during endurance effort.
Green tea thus improves the body's ability to use its own fats for fuel.
Green tea is particularly rich in anti-oxidants, primarily epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) (21). EGCG not only protects our cells from excess oxidation induced by free radicals, but it is also what explains the slimming effects of green tea (22).
The antioxidants of green tea thus produce a triple role: a health function, an improvement of the physical performances and an anti-fat action (23).
However, for better absorption of EGCGs, medical research suggests using green tea on an empty stomach. In fact, the more food you eat with your green tea, the more the assimilation of EGCGs will be reduced (24 - 25).
