It’s been widely reported that people who are obese are more susceptible to serious health complications associated with contracting Covid-19. According to a new article in the NY Times1,
“People with extra weight may struggle to mount a robust immune response to the coronavirus — and may respond poorly to a vaccine.”
And more specifically,
“The correlations between Covid-19 and obesity are worrisome. In one report published last month, researchers found that people with obesity who caught the coronavirus were more than twice as likely to end up in the hospital and nearly 50 percent more likely to die of Covid-19.”
It doesn’t require too much reading between the lines to understand that this is the time to seriously consider weight loss for the over forty percent of Americans who are obese.
That’s where green tea comes into the picture. According to a report in Medical News Today2
“The processes that allow the body to convert food and drink into usable energy are collectively known as the metabolism. Green tea may be beneficial for weight loss by helping the body’s metabolism to be more efficient.”
“Green tea contains a type of flavonoid called catechin, which is an antioxidant. Research suggests that both of these compounds can speed up metabolism. Catechin can help to break down excess fat, while catechins can increase the amount of energy the body uses.”
Of all catechins, EGCG is the most prized of this particular class of antioxidant. A report from Healthline3
“Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is a unique plant compound that gets a lot of attention for its potential positive impact on health. It’s thought to reduce inflammation, aid weight loss, and help prevent heart and brain disease.”
The good news here is that our Chi Tea line of green tea extracts provide the highest concentration of EGCG available.
