GREEN TEA’S EGCG FOCUSES MORE THAN ATTENTION


EGCG Focuses More Than Attention

Epigallocatechin-3 gallate, known by the acronym EGCG, is a key component of green tea. In addition to the compound’s metabolic qualities, it’s said to have memory and brain boosting potential. A study published in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research tested EGCG in the lab and on mice trained to locate hidden objects. Both experiments showed an increase in the production of neural progenitor cells, resulting in improved cognitive function.

True Strength Moment: Neural progenitor cells work like stem cells in the brain, where they can change into different types of cells. This research suggests that increasing their production has a positive impact on learning, memory and object recognition. Those who appreciate an anytimeboost of energy and alertness from green coffee and green tea extract might have more than improved mental focus and calorie burning working in their favor at the gym.
