Dr Oz talked about EGCG supplements for boosting metabolism and burning fat. EGCG is a potent antioxidant found in abundance in green tea. It has been widely studied and proven for it numerous health benefits. I had written extensively about green tea and EGCG in previous my posts below:

Drinking green tea is not to everyone’s liking. For those of you are always on the go, you may not even have time to make the brew.

No worries… you can still benefit from green tea’s potent antioxidant by taking green tea extract pills/capsules. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition shows that absorption of polyphenols were enhanced when they were given as a green tea supplement in capsule form than as a tea beverage. There was also an increase in antioxidant effects from consumption of the green tea capsules.

When choosing high quality green tea extract capsules, look out for the EGCG content (in % or mg). EGCG is the primary catechin and an important marker for green tea. Be sure to follow the recommended dosage for each green tea extract product.
