Green tea extract has been the focus of several weight loss studies recently. In addition to its healthful benefit of strong antioxidant activity and its ability to burn more calories, green tea is now being studied for another weight loss benefit, reducing appetite.
One new product containing green tea is called WARP 9, manufactured by DynaPure Nutrition (http://www.dynapurenutrition.com), which has been the focus of weight loss headlines recently. Green tea extract is one of the nine main ingredients in the patent pending WARP 9 formula which contains derivatives that have been shown to reduce appetite by decreasing a hormone called leptin and increasing a chemical neurotransmitter called noradrenaline.
Leptin is a protein produced by fats that appear to play an important role in how the body manages fat storage through brain signals. DynaPure Nutrition's formulator of WARP 9 Pete Maletto explained, "Years ago it was thought by scientists that lower leptin levels would increase appetite. Current research has now found that it does just the opposite and decreases appetite. There is clear evidence that green tea's polyphenols (EGCG) are a factor in depressing leptin as well as affecting other hormone levels important in regulating appetite. This complements the many ingredients in WARP 9 that decrease appetite through other important biochemical signals such as noradrenaline which can also facilitate healthy weight loss."
Green tea is now holding promise in many areas of weight loss. Besides affecting leptin levels, green tea also increases noradrenaline levels. Noradrenaline is a chemical neurotransmitter in the nervous system that plays a major role in activation of brown fat tissue (BAT), which is the only metabolically active fat in the human body. Activation of brown fat by increased noradrenaline levels is significant because it burns calories from the white fat located around our waistline, hips and thighs.
"Increasing noradrenaline is just another one of the important weight loss advancements in WARP 9. We can expect green tea to make an impact, but it's important to include other natural ingredients that also increase noradrenaline so that WARP 9 can provide even greater weight loss benefits for the consumer" Maletto said.
