    * Investigators measured the 24-hour energy expenditure of 10 healthy men receiving three doses of caffeine (50 mg), green tea extract (containing 50 mg caffeine and 90 mg epigallocatechin), or a 'dummy' placebo per day. The study authors report that, compared with placebo, subject taking green tea extract had a "significant increase" (+4%) in daily energy expenditure.Dr Abdul Dulloo, "Stimulation of thermogenesis and fat oxidation by the green tea extract did not raise subjects' heart rates. This may render green tea superior to stimulant diet drugs, which can have adverse cardiac effects, especially in obese individuals with hypertension and other cardiovascular complications."
