New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with 7 Proven Ways Green Tea Burns Fat (more than coffee?)?
I love my coffee but when it comes down to fat-burning undeniably green tea is epic and it’s because it has properties outside of just caffeine and polyphenols it has unique properties unique catechins that actually do really cool things we’re gonna break down the seven ways that green tea truly helps you burn fat and this is all scientific stuff this isn’t just weird random science out there this is good legitimate scientific literature broken down into an easy digestible form for you hey I want to make sure you hit that red subscribe button then hit that little bell icon so you can turn on notifications so we’ve got videos coming up just about every single day nowadays so you never want to miss a beat never want to miss a fat-burning opportunity so let’s go ahead and let’s dive into number one so that I can be cognizant of your time all right caffeine obviously this is in coffee too but in green tea we still have to mention it because it does play a big role in fat burning okay it promotes nor epinephrine norepinephrine is a very big when it comes down to fat burning a little bit more on that later but it’s a phosphodiesterases inhibitor now again big fancy words that I always throw around it sounds smart right the reality is I just don’t know how to summarize that phosphodiesterases hitter’s basically prevent the inactivation of something known as CA MP long story short it blocks your body’s enzyme that would normally block it from burning fat okay so we have the ability to burn fat but there’s always going to be activity that stops that from occurring caffeine basically breaks down the blockade so fat burning can turn on okay this is called a phosphodiesterase inhibitor so even though it’s a fancy word it’s actually a pretty simple thing alright now let’s go ahead and let’s jump into number two which is e G C G’s effect on norepinephrine when it comes down to fat burning okay so now we know that norepinephrine helps us burn fat right okay it’s the catecholamine it’s it’s what is elevated when you workout when your heart rate goes up right when you’re nervous when your heart rate goes up or when you’re fasting your heart rate goes up and you’re a little bit stress you have norepinephrine and adrenaline this burns fat we only want it in small surges that we don’t want it chronically elevate well the interesting thing is EGCG also known as epic ala catechin 3 Gailey which is the main catechin that’s in green he actually stops the breakdown of norepinephrine okay so we have a surge of norepinephrine that occurs because we have the caffeine or just because we worked out or whatever but EGCG actually stops the breakdown of it so it has a longer effect within our body so that means rather than just having a quick surge of it we get a little surge of it that lasts for a little bit longer allowing fat to get mobilized that much better you’re not gonna get that with coffee you’re only getting that with green tea that has the EGCG in it so inhibits a specific enzyme known as catechol all methyl transferase again this enzyme would normally encourage the breakdown of norepinephrine so right whenever we produce norepinephrine we have enzymatic activity that breaks it down so it dissolves it once it’s released released and then it breaks down well basically we’re inhibiting this methyl transferase so it’s basically making it so that that enzyme doesn’t break it down as fast so it’s active in our body longer which means we burn fat longer the next thing we have to talk about is EGC G’s effect on cholecystokinin CCK okay C CK is a satiety thing it’s all about making you feel satiated so we have an increase in C CK we have a subsequent decrease in hunger it slows down our gut motility so that’s why I like green tea between meals is great because it make us so you don’t get hungry okay so not only you’re getting the fat burning effects but you’re also getting the appetite suppressant effects which is super super powerful in addition to doing that has a big effect on dopaminergic activity within the brain which means that you have bigger surges of dopamine that are more control when you have caffeine from coffee you know a big spike in dopamine you feel really good and then you come crashing down and you don’t feel as good with green tea it’s a little bit more controlled you have a nice gentle bell curve of an increase of dopamine activity which makes you feel quite a bit better okay now we have to talk about what I think is the coolest one number four it legitimately increases your overall resting metabolism meaning green tea makes it so that your metabolism is just higher at rest okay so the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published an interesting study I took a look at ten individuals and these ten individuals they divided into two groups they divided them into a caffeine plus EGCG group and then they divided them into a caffeine plus placebo group what they wanted to measure was okay or all these fat burning effects green tea actually coming from just the caffeine or are we getting something else in addition to the caffeine so that’s why they took basically just straight caffeine placebo and caffeine plus EGCG well guess what they measured their resting energy expenditure and the group that ended up consuming the EGCG along with the caffeine had a 4% higher resting energy expenditure than the other group it doesn’t sound like much but 4% of your overall metabolism just increased doing nothing okay simply because you had some green tea you had EGCG plus caffeine so how does this work well it works simply because it is a synergistic system between the two norepinephrine pathways that I talked about so basically the caffeine is increasing the amount of epinephrine and the EGCG is making it so it doesn’t break down as fast so you have kind of a compound effect there but it sort of magically creates a third Avenue by the interaction in between so think of it like this it’s like a freeway that’s on two lanes and you have norepinephrine activity and you have these two lanes that are allowing you to burn fat but then all of a sudden it opens up into a third Lane and all of a sudden boom everything can go faster and move freely I got to give credit to someone in my office Matt who actually came up with that analogy it’s perfect okay so now you just opened up the floodgates and it works well right now additionally with this study they found that there was a 40% increase in norepinephrine that was excreted through the urine now what that means is that they were producing 40% more so even though the metabolism only went up 4% they had an increase of norepinephrine by 40% which indicates they were probably burning a lot more fat within that increase in their metabolism so now you’re getting the point that green tea is epic stuff compared to just coffee again I love my coffee don’t throw away your coffee but sip on green tea and by the way if you’re wondering which green tea to get matcha is gonna be my go to so if you check out you see no matcha down below in the description they have some really cool things they have like these little single serve packets that taste really good so they’re sweet matcha or they have all kinds of different ceremonial grade little jars and stuff like that that you can have around the house or bring with you this is a 180 year old matcha company so these people have it down okay they know exactly what to do they know how to harvest this stuff so that it’s clean and clear and doesn’t have the oxidation that you’re going to get a lot of inexpensive watch us around so I highly highly recommend it if you’re someone that does intermittent fasting you do keto or you’re just trying to get the benefits of green tea but you don’t want to swing through Starbucks and get low quality green tea so check them out down below in the description special pricing for anybody that’s watching this video and you can check them out but make sure you finish up this video first so you put your knowledge hat on before you just go willy-nilly spending money right okay the next thing I want to talk about is l-theanine theanine is great when it comes to serotonin and dopamine that is why you feel good when you drink a green tea point-blank you feel calm you feel like you can take on the world and everything that comes at you just doesn’t bother you that’s the theni and doing its thing okay it affects your dopamine and affects your serotonin so you feel nice and calm which has an effect on fat-burning believe it or not because when dopamine is elevated you don’t feel desire to go snack and munch the other thing that’s really cool about l-theanine and its effect on the brain is it increases our alpha waves which makes us feel really calm and not have an appetite now I say this with a grain of salt the reason that nicotine actually makes it so that people don’t have an appetite is because studies have shown that it increases the amount of alpha waves you’re basically just in a cool state you don’t feel like you really just need to eat that’s what people are talking about with kind of that nicotine right well you’re getting the same alpha wave correlation but you’re getting an Athenian obviously a much safer way and much healthier for you long term but it’s also going to make it so you’re not hungry but you’re feeling kind of cool in the mean time so I don’t know I think but you needs pretty awesome stuff now number six is also to do with theanine and that’s the– neens effect on nitric oxide you’re not going to get this with coffee right okay so what theanine does in this case is it makes it so that our endothelial layer of our arteries of our cells they’re actually produce more nitric oxide nitric oxide sounds like something you just want to take before a workout because it gives you a bigger pump but no that’s like it’s totally secondary if not third or fourth right the major effect is it increases blood flow to increase nutrient delivery but also increase fat burning so now we’ve got this superhighway of fat that’s burning and we just basically made it the Autobahn instead like everything is just going really fast there’s more blood flow more fat burning more norepinephrine doing its thing lastly the polyphenols in green tea are very powerful now Coffee has polyphenols too but green tea is usually a cleaner in the way of polyphenols this has an effect on the liver okay it increases Bluetooth ion peroxidase which means that the liver is able to detoxify if you are in ketosis for instance your liver cannot be backed up your liver needs to be free and clear so it can package up fats into ketones and send them over the cells for energy so if your livers clogged up it’s not gonna do eating good so how about getting the fat burning effect from the norepinephrine and all that getting everything mobilized but then also clearing the path so that it can get manufactured into energy and you actually burn that fat and use it for energy rather than just feel sluggish all the time so this breaks it down again I love my coffee do not stop drinking coffee if you drink it but have some green tea every now and then because honestly it’s gonna make a big difference I promise you that as always keep it locked in here in my channel I’ll see you in the next video

7 Proven Ways Green Tea Burns Fat (more than coffee?) – Thomas DeLauer
Caffeine is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor – phosphodiesterase inhibitor prevents the inactivation of the intracellular second messengers cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)
cAMP activates hormone sensitive lipase, promoting lipolysis and increasing FFA’s
EGCG & Norepinephrine
Green tea contains a phytonutrient called EGCG can help inhibit an enzyme that breaks down the hormone norepinephrine
When this enzyme is inhibited, the amount of norepinephrine increases, promoting fat breakdown
Specifically, it inhibits catechol-O-methyltransferase, which is an enzyme that degrades catecholamines (such as dopamine, epinephrine, and norepinephrine) – inhibition of this enzyme prevents the degradation of catecholamines
CCK – Satiation
EGCG increases the hormone CCK (cholecystokinin), which is responsible for creating the feeling of satiation
CCK slows down intestinal motility as it causes food to move more slowly through the intestines – feel full for a longer period of time
Increased Metabolic Rate
Study – American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
Investigated whether green tea extract, by virtue of its high content of caffeine and catechin polyphenols, could increase 24-h energy expenditure (EE) and fat oxidation in humans.
Twenty-four-hour EE, the respiratory quotient (RQ), and the urinary excretion of nitrogen and catecholamines were measured in a respiratory chamber in 10 healthy men
On 3 separate occasions, subjects were randomly assigned among 3 treatments: green tea extract (50 mg caffeine and 90 mg epigallocatechin gallate), caffeine (50 mg), and placebo, which they ingested at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Relative to placebo, treatment with the green tea extract resulted in a significant increase in 24-h EE (4%)
Twenty-four-hour urinary norepinephrine excretion was higher during treatment with the green tea extract than with the placebo (40%)
Treatment with caffeine in amounts equivalent to those found in the green tea extract had no effect on EE and RQ nor on urinary nitrogen or catecholamines
L – Theanine: Serotonin & Satiation
L-theanine increases brain levels of serotonin, dopamine, GABA levels – serotonin acts to increase cholecystokinin and leptin, giving you a “full” feeling
This is a weaker link, but theanine increases levels of alpha waves, putting you in a focused state of mind – you’d likely be less inclined to eat during this, although there isn’t a published study looking directly at this
Although there are some studies show that the appetite reducing effects of nicotine are because it increases alpha waves
L-Theanine: Nitric Oxide
Theanine increases blood flow as it increases the production of nitric oxide in endothelium cells (cells that line the interior surface of blood vessels and lymphatic vessels), which is a gas that widens blood vessels and improves blood flow
It does this by activating the phosphorylation of eNOS which regulates NO generation
A wider, more dilated blood vessel allows for greater blood to flow through it, which means more nutrient rich blood is transported to your muscles, delivering the essentials it needs to repair and grow.
Theanine increases blood flow, which may increase the delivery of fat burning hormones like epinephrine and norepinephrine
Polyphenols in green tea can help improve liver health – it lowers lipid levels in the body and reduces the risk of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
Polyphenols enhance the liver’s ability to produce glutathione – Phase II liver detoxification neutralizes the byproducts of phase I liver detoxification and other remaining toxins
Under normal conditions, phase 2 liver detoxification enzymes produce low levels of glutathione – under times of high toxic stress the body needs a higher production of glutathione
