Green Tea
Green tea has become a beverage superstar thanks to headlines trumpeting its health-boosting antioxidant, epigallocatechin- 3-gallate (EGCG). Emerging research suggests EGCG may improve endurance performance, reduce exercise muscle damage and increase fat burning during workouts. 

Chew on this: Gleaned from whole tea leaves that are ground into powder form, matcha green tea may contain the most EGCG.

What to try: After a run, find matcha powder at matchasource.com

Quick dish: Add matcha powder to smoothies, baked goods, yogurt or cottage cheese.
