Green tea is associated with health benefits. Some studies showed enhanced exercise-induced fat oxidation with intake of capsulated green tea components, primarily with epigallocatechin-3-O-gallate, but that effect was never observed with drinking brewed green tea from unpowdered leaves. In 2013, Hodgson et al. published a review article on green tea intake and exercise-induced fat oxidation. This review will cover some of the green tea studies since 2013 with only one study on the effects of drinking green tea. A study in 2018 showed that drinking a few cups with normal amounts of powdered green tea leaves (i.e. Matcha) enhanced fat oxidation during brisk walking in females. Capsulated intake of green tea components but also regular drinking of normal amounts of Matcha have the potential to provide benefits for health and exercise.
