The Benefits Of Green Tea Extract

You’ve most likely heard some of the potential benefits of green tea extract. Weight loss, cancer prevention, cardiovascular support, and just a good old caffeine boost.

Just because it’s on the internet, doesn’t mean it’s true. So how can you be sure you’ll get the benefits of green tea extract while avoiding any possible side effects?

There are two ways we can look at this… a historical approach, or a scientific approach.

Green tea has been used as a health remedy for centuries and although studies have not yet verified all of the ancient health claims associated with green tea, there is still plenty of evidence supporting a variety of its health benefits.

The Science Behind Green Tea Extract Benefits

Green tea extract comes from the plant Camellia sinensis, the same species that gives us white, black and green tea.

As far back as 1191 a Zen priest purported green tea to have a positive impact on 5 vital organs. He may have been right, but what he probably didn’t know, was why green tea extract benefits the body.

The benefits can be linked to green tea’s polyphenolic content, which acts as a powerful antioxidant. These compounds, such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epicatechin gallate, epicatechins and flavanols, counteract the harmful effects of free radicals.

For a quick refresher, free radicals are unstable molecules within your body that can cause cell damage that leads to disease and accelerated aging.

Free radicals are a part of life - they can occur via the breakdown of certain foods, and we’re exposed to them through pollution in our surrounding environment.

Fortunately, science has our backs, and numerous studies have linked the high antioxidant, free-radical fighting content in green tea to:

• Cancer prevention
• Improved cardiovascular health
• Weight loss

How To Add Green Tea Extract To Your Diet

The most obvious way to get the benefits of green tea extract is to drink green tea. Instead of downing cup after cup of what many people find to be a bitter beverage, you can opt to take your green tea as a supplement.

While many supplements contain only EGCG, evidence suggests that all four catechins in whole-leaf green tea extract work synergistically.

So if you’re looking to maximize your results, it’s best to aim for a whole-leaf green tea extract, rather than an isolated extract of EGCG.

You can optimize your green tea intake even further by combining it with certain other elements, many of which can be found in a high quality greens product.

The emphasis here is on quality. When looking for the right supplement, it’s essential to ensure each ingredient is in a high quality, bioavailable form. It’s also a good idea to check where the product is manufactured.

Let’s face it, supplement quality is a minefield.

Choosing The Right Green Tea Extract Supplement

Green tea extract works best when combined with other potent antioxidants like cocoa bean polyphenol extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid as an antioxidant “recycler”, vitamin C, vitamin A and co-enzyme Q-10.

Frequently Asked Questions

Well first, there’s the taste. Most tea drinkers in the western world are accustomed to the taste of black tea, which is stronger and sweeter. Even if you do drink green tea, it is typically not organic. By taking green tea extract as part of Athletic Greens, you are optimizing the benefit of the plant whilst reducing the risk of getting some not-so-nice contaminants, such as pesticides and metals.


Yes! Green tea extract works well together with other potent antioxidants like cocoa bean polyphenol extract and vitamin C, which are also found in Athletic Greens.

On top of that, we’ve added Alpha Lipoic Acid as an antioxidant “recycler”, vitamin A (as beta-carotene) and co-enzyme Q-10 to maximize the antioxidant benefits.


The answer is yes, but the content is much lower than that of coffee or black tea. Typically a cup of coffee contains about 100 mg of caffeine and a cup of green tea contains about 20 mg. Black tea sits somewhere between the two. It’s worth bearing in mind this is all brand-dependent.

The Athletic Greens formula contains an outstanding green tea extract; however, it is standardized for antioxidant content, not caffeine. This means that there are only trace amounts of caffeine left in terms of stimulants.

If you are trying to avoid caffeine, you should do just fine. However, if you have any concerns or doubts, we highly suggest checking with your medical professional.


All four catechins found in whole-leaf green tea extract appear to work synergistically. Isolated extracts of EGCG, which can be found elsewhere on the market, do not have this benefit. At Athletic Greens we’re all about synergy and optimizing the benefits, so we’ve included a whole-leaf green tea extract.


The good news is, there are currently no reports of clinical toxicity and no adverse reactions associated with taking green tea extract in reasonable doses (aside from individual sensitivities to caffeine as mentioned above).
