Green Tea Extract

I'm sure that you’re already aware that green tea is recognized by many as one of the healthiest drinks to consume due to its antioxidants and phytochemicals, which serve several purposes for improving general health. It’s such a potent elixir that it has even found its way into the cabinets of hardcore bodybuilders. They use green tea to help them get lean during their cutting cycle.

Of course, you steroid users out there probably need a gallon of green tea per day to get noticeable bodybuilding benefits, and some guys do drink that much. But if you can’t drink that much in a day, then there’s still good news for you, because the extract from green tea can be isolated. So, you don’t need to drink all the liquid, since you can now use an extracted, dried version that can be loaded into a capsule and taken easily. Green tea extract is a potent fat burner as a supplement, which is why smart bodybuilders are using it to get lean and stay that way year-round, during their steroid cycles, or when they are off.

The EGCG in Green Tea Extract

The active ingredient in green tea extract that steroid-using bodybuilders are looking for specifically is a catechin (type of antioxidant) called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG). Yes, you can just drink green tea and get this active ingredient. But while drinking green tea will give you some of this substance, it’s a meager amount compared to the actual green tea extract.

The EGCG, combined with small amounts of caffeine present, create a potent metabolism booster. We all know how important metabolism is when it comes to losing fat and staying lean. A turbocharged metabolism is something a bodybuilder must have to stay competitive against their peers. So, the EGCG in green tea extract will raise metabolism and help burn away those stubborn fat deposits around the waist in males, and in the thighs in females.

Metabolic rate

We can point to green tea extract as being fantastic for raising the metabolic rate. Studies have shown when this supplement is taken, you will burn more calories while resting or exercising. The more calories burned, the more fat you can burn, which is going to make a huge difference in how easy it is for you to stay lean.

Unlike fat-burner stimulants that only work in the short term and temporarily before wearing off, green tea extract will not harm your metabolic rate long term and keeps your metabolism buzzing hard. A human study took a look at obese people and found that 7 more pounds were burned along with 200 extra calories per day after 3 months of use. Bodybuilders have been quick to add green tea extract to their regimens, alongside other fat burners and cutting agents.

Appetite control

In bodybuilding circles, we tend to search for ironclad evidence that something is working, and there’s no better way than noticing a change in appetite. Specifically, appetite suppression is a major reason why stimulants are considered such good fat burners. It’s no secret that eating less food will result in more fat loss, especially when we are getting ready for a show. A typical contest prep coach will want their competitor to cut carbs to almost nothing so the bodybuilder can be as dry and ripped as possible for the stage.

The problem, though, is that we love to eat food! It isn't so easy to cut back, especially on yummy carbohydrates. Green tea extract taken before your meals will make you feel more satiated, so you will eat less food and consume fewer calories and carbs in the process. It works to help you cut your caloric intake drastically without suffering any hunger pains or cravings, thus helping you reach your target weight loss by the day of the show.

Belly fat

Visceral fat, which is concentrated around the belly, is a common occurrence in males. The reason why so many middle-aged men have guts is a combination of too much inflammation and insulin resistance built up over the years from poor diet habits. Internal fat in between your intestines will give you a barrel shape that is just not very appealing at all. Green tea extract specializes in burning this stubborn bell fat. This is another reason why it has been adopted by bodybuilders, because it allows them to specifically target fat loss in the mid-section, helping to provide that V taper symmetry the judges favor so much. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19074207

Steroid users

Bodybuilders take performance-enhancing drugs, including anabolic steroids, to reach their fitness goals. Some of these drugs include things like Clenbuterol or massive amounts of fat-burner stimulants. These compounds are destructive towards your cardiovascular system, as evidenced by the sharp rise in cholesterol, blood pressure, and overall lipid health — on top of the health risks of anabolics. Green tea
extract is a great fat burner and doesn’t come with additional side effects, so it is completely safe to use while on a steroid cycle and even during post-cycle therapy. It’s not only safe to use, but also has antioxidant properties that help to improve your health.

Dosage and why you should be stacking it

Green Tea extract can be dosed periodically throughout the day and/or before meals to give you the most benefits. Although on its own it is very effective, it will stack very well with other fat-burning compounds. So, you will find most serious bodybuilders using it as part of an overall fat-burning formula.

We recommend you use green tea extract in conjunction with other supplements that help block fat storage and also boost nutrition partitioning, such as Bergenin, Gymnema Sylvestre, crepe myrtle tannin, etc. Doing so offers maximum results to help you better reach your goals.

You can always buy any brand of products you like, but we recommend N2Slin. N2slin contains 100mg of Green Tea extract per serving, along with those ingredients mentioned above and more. N2slin is taken at 1-3 capsules, 30 minutes before a large meal. Or, you can take 1 capsule several times per day(every two hours) or ahead of smaller meals.

With N2Slin, you want to make sure to have the product in your system as calories are being released from your small intestine into the bloodstream. In other words, you have to take it before meals. The formula is meant to help you block those calories out of the fat cells and, instead, promote a chemical environment where your muscle cells will take in most of those newly introduced nutrients. Consistent usage of N2Slin daily should help you tip balances in your metabolism, so that you are building more lean mass and accumulating less fat.

N2slin is sold at N2bm.com.
