EGCG: Voodoo Nutrition?
I’m a skeptic. I don’t believe something simply because someone says it’s true. I especially don’t buy into glorious marketing schemes. My motto, prove it. And it seems Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal feels the same way, because he plans to investigate the claims surrounding EGCG. Susan Haigh of the Associated Press explains:
An Enviga Web site claims that the drink's blend of green tea and caffeine burns more calories than it contains and can help drinkers maintain an ideal weight. According to a Nestle study, young people who drank three of the 12-ounce drinks a day burned an average of 106 calories.
Blumenthal demanded copies of all scientific studies, clinical trials, tests and papers that prove the calorie-burning claim by next week.
Unless there are credible scientific studies, claims "may be nothing more than voodoo nutrition," Blumenthal said. "Promise of wondrous weight loss must be supported by science, not magic."
