Green Tea 

Green tea is the dried leaves of the same tea plant that gives us the popular black tea.  The difference is that black tea is fermented to produce the characteristic flavour and this process destroys most of its medicinal benefits.  Green tea is a medicinal food because the active ingredients are present in a cup of tea in sufficient quantities to have some medicinal effects.  However, by adding milk to green tea the antioxidant status of the tea can be significantly lowered.  There are many types of green tea beverages, bagged or loose leaves, organic and non-organic, caffeinated and decaffeinated products.  Green tea may also be combined with other herbs or flavours (i.e. lemon, peach, jasmine).   Green tea supplements are found as encapsulated herb or tablets.  Green tea supplements should be standardized as an assurance of the amount of polyphenols they contain.  It can be found in combination products for cholesterol control, heart health and anti-aging.
 
Green tea’s antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals and therefore reduce damage to tissue.  Green tea’s epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has been shown to inhibit the growth of cancer cells and prevent the spread of tumours to other areas of the body.  It may also increase the effectiveness of some anti-cancer medication while protecting the body’s normal cells from cancer therapies like radiation and chemotherapy.  Natural health practitioners for low immune functioning, age-related diseases, cardiovascular disease and cancer may recommend green tea.

Green Tea & Heart Health

Green tea’s polyphenols have been well studied for their pharmacological activity and have proven to have many benefits for cardiovascular health.
 
Green tea intake is shown to decrease levels of LDL cholesterol, the cholesterol responsible for cholesterol plaques and the storage of fat, and triglycerides.  Green tea also increases levels of HDL cholesterol, which is responsible for moving stored fat to the liver for processing and excretion from the body.  HDL cholesterol protects against plaque formation. It also improves blood circulation and decreases inflammation in vessels.  Thus green tea can be used to prevent stroke and heart attack.  The polyphenols are also antioxidants, protecting cells from oxidative damage.  Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage.

Green Tea & Weight Loss 

Studies have shown Green Tea to have a significant effect on the body's ability to burn fat for energy.  In particular a catechin called epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG has proven to safely enhance thermogenesis, resulting in weight loss. 

Raspberry Ketones

In recent months Dr. Oz has touted raspberry ketones as a miracle fat-burner on his self-titled show. He explains it as a substance that "tricks your body into acting like it's thin" by increasing the levels of a hormone called adiponectin. Since this hormone is naturally expressed in higher levels in people who are naturally thin, Dr. Oz says that raspberry ketones can "help your body think it's thin".

What are they?

Ketone is the term used to refer to a particular chemical bond, and any molecule that contains that bond. A ketone bond is very reactive, which can allow the aromatization of a molecule containing it.
 
Aromatization means that we can sense the molecule as a smell. Raspberry ketones are a major aromatic compound in red raspberries, and thus they are responsible for the smell of raspberries. Because of this function, raspberry ketones have been used in cosmetics and perfumes as a scent since the 1960's. Naturally extracted raspberry ketones exist at about 1-4mg per kilogram of red raspberries. It would not be possible to eat enough raspberries to get a physiologically active dose. Because of this, naturally extracted raspberry ketones are extremely expensive, and so commercially available varieties are often synthesized in a lab.
