Green Tea Polyphenols Build Mass?

Green Tea Polyphenols Build Mass? The important polyphenols in green tea are epigallocatechin gallate better known as EGCG, along with epigallocatechin, epicatechin gallate and epicatechin. Research presented at Experimental Biology 2011 suggests that green tea might play roles in bone density and muscle building in addition to its well-documented fat loss support.

Scientists had 171 middle aged women consume 4 to 6 cups of green tea or a placebo, and engage in tai chi training or no exercise at all. After 6 months, even the subjects who didn't engage in exercise exhibited enhanced bone health and muscle strength. In all, 500mg of green tea was consumed every day.

True Strength Moment: That amount of green tea is best consumed throughout the day. Of course, it's reasonable to assume that some people are going to get tired of the flavor after a while. An alternative would be to substitute Essential Amino Energy with its green energy matrix of EGCG, Green Tea and Green Coffee extracts. Each serving provides 160mg of natural energizers with 100mg of caffeine and there are three flavors to choose from.
