While Australians have been guzzling more than 275 million litres of sugary, calorie-laden sports and energy drinks each year, one Australian health company has taken a new approach, developing Green Tea X50 – a healthy, naturally-derived energy drink which packs in the powerful antioxidant benefits of up to 20 cups of green tea into one single serve.
No doubt you’ve heard of “healthier” energy drink options before, but the sugar-free, preservative-free, low GI and most significantly – TGA listed – Green Tea X50 is in a league of its own. Mixed with 600mL of water, one 3g sachet per day will help to boost energy and improve your overall health, while two serves will stimulate your metabolism, assisting with weight loss. Better yet, each serving of Green Tea X50 contains the caffeine equivalent of 1 normal cup of green tea or less than half a cup of coffee, so it won’t leave you bouncing off the walls.
It’s no secret that green tea is good for you – traditional Chinese and Indian doctors have known of its various health benefits it for centuries – from helping to boost the immune system, detoxing the liver and kidneys and improving and regulating cholesterol levels, to reducing visceral and subcutaneous fat, boosting energy, and lowering blood pressure. However, what most people aren’t aware of is that you need to drink more than ten cups of green tea each day to reap these long term health benefits.
Steve Trinder, Green Tea X50’s Australian founder, developed the product after a Chinese doctor recommended he drink at least 20 cups of green tea per day to speed up his metabolism, lose weight and improve his heart health. While the benefits were undeniable, Steve couldn’t stomach the taste or the caffeine that this high level of consumption of green tea required, so he set out to develop his very own alternative sports and energy drink that not only tasted great, but also delivered the full force of antioxidant and metabolic benefits available in green tea.
“When you look at other products on the market, some energy drinks contain up to seven teaspoons of sugar, while sports drinks can contain up to 13 teaspoons of sugar, and close to 200 calories1,” Steve says. “And health benefits – what health benefits? These drinks can take up to 30 minutes on the treadmill or more than an hour pounding the pavement to burn off – which is most people’s daily workout, wasted!”
“While remaining virtually sugar-free and containing only 10 calories per serve – Green Tea X50 can actually help you burn up to 200 extra calories each day thanks to the metabolic benefits of green tea which are concentrated in the product,” he says.
The star ingredients in Green Tea X50 are polyphenols and catechins – powerful antioxidants that naturally occur in green tea. Research shows that these antioxidants stimulate the metabolic function and increase the burning of body fat, promoting thermogenesis and hence increasing energy and promoting weight loss. Green
Tea X50 contains more than 600mg of these fat-burning antioxidants in each serve – more than any other imitation product.
Green Tea X50 also features resveratrol, another powerful antioxidant usually found in berries, the skin of purple and red grapes, and red wine – at an amount equivalent to 25 glasses! This antioxidant helps fight the effects of free radicals and improves insulin resistance, making it effective in not only in aiding weight loss and detoxing but also in managing blood sugar levels. Research also suggests that resveratrol helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels, supports a healthy cardiovascular system and protects blood cells against oxidative damage, which is thought to contribute to the ageing process.
Low GI, sugar free and aspartame free – sweetened with Xylitol, derived from the birch tree – Green Tea X50 is also diabetic-friendly as it increases insulin activity, helps prevent insulin resistance and blocks glucose absorption.
Available in Original, Raspberry, Tropical and Chocolate, Green Tea X50 is the ultimate energy drink with proven health benefits.
