EGCG and How It Helps You Lose Weight

Wondering what EGCG might be? If you have never heard the term before then this is the perfect article for you as it will explain what it means and how it can help you lose weight. So read on to find out everything that you need to know about this miracle worker.

Understanding EGCG

Epigallocatechin gallate, also known as EGCG, is a polyphenol that is found in green tea. It is a form of catechin that work to reduce free radicals in the body. Since it’s such a powerful antioxidant, there are plenty of health benefits attached to it. Research suggests that EGCG is the most important component of green tea as it increases the oxidation of fat by about 33%. There are many other benefits of EGCG consumption.

EGCG and Weight Loss

Many studies have been conducted on the effectiveness of EGCG for weight loss. When it comes down to it, the right dose of EGCG results in weight loss. So you might be asking yourself, “So I can just drink a lot of green tea to lose weight?” Unfortunately, the answer is no.

Green tea contains only a small dose of EGCG as there are many other antioxidants present in the tea. Since this dosage effective for weight loss cannot be obtained from the tea alone, you will need to take EGCG in the form of concentrated form, such as the EGCG in ProbioSlim’s LS3664 Whole Health Superblend.

How It Helps

So how does EGCG help you lose weight? The first thing that EGCG does is help burn the fats in the body. It does this by increasing your metabolic rate (essentially this means you burn more calories just by sitting around). All the fat that is stored in the body is eaten up by your metabolic system and hence you end up losing weight.

EGCG can do miraculous things for your weight loss. However, you need to make sure you’re taking high quality EGCG in the right dose. With ProbioSlim, you know you’re getting exactly what you need to lose weight.
