Muscle and Fitness Magazine - "S#!t You Can Add to Shakes"

Blend #4 If you want to: Shed fat

Dec 2010 - Traditionally served to Japanese emperors, matcha is made by grinding lightly steamed young green tea leaves into a fine powder. Scientists at the University of Colorado (Colorado Springs) reported that the matcha they tested contained 137 times more epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) than regular green tea. Why the monster dose of EGCG? When you take matcha, you consume the whole leaf rather than just an infusion brewed from the leaves. Besides helping fight against a laundry list of maladies, EGCG can stimulate metabolism and fat oxidation to help torch bodyfat, a number of studies have discovered. Find matcha at health-food stores, tea stores or online at matchasource.com. Dose: Add 1 teaspoon to any shake.
