- Human studies of green tea’s weight management properties revealed greater calorie burning by individuals who took the extract compared to individuals who did not.
- Although some of the effects of green tea extract are attributed to its caffeine content, one study found increased metabolic rate and greater fat metabolism in subjects taking a green tea extract compared to subjects who took a placebo, even though the green tea extract did not contain caffeine.
