Green Tea and Resistance Exercise

So much has been studied and so much misinformation is out on green tea itself. Scientists do definitively know a few things for example: A person that is most likely to include tea drinking into their daily regime is most aptly already living a healthy lifestyle.
 Therefore, this inclusion is better for their health than possibly those who do not include tea as part of their daily drink choice.
Scientists continue to test and try to clarify the questions that the tea drinking and the exercise/diet community have.Until as late as last year, debate still remains around the idea that tea (preferably green tea) “spikes” the metabolism and that will cause weight loss.As reported through the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition that tea is helpful in health and they go on to include that researchers from the United States Dept. of AG, National Institute of Health, UCLA and University of Glasgowhave found that the polyphenols along with caffeine content …
