Does Vanilla Green Tea Have Caffeine?
The base ingredient of our Green Tea with vanilla is Gunpowder Tea. Originating from the Chinese Zhejiang Province, the leaves - having been rolled into round pellets - contain a moderate amount of caffeine.
This stimulating constituent most famously provides an often much-needed energy boost upon consumption. You can expect about 30-mg of caffeine per 8-oz cup of Vanilla Green Tea.
Vanilla Green Tea Benefits
While Vanilla in Green Tea is unlikely to influence your health and well-being, the Tea leaves themselves will. According to the latest scientific evidence, the infusion has high quantities of a catechin called epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), a natural antioxidant with extraordinary potential.
As a result, Vanilla Green Tea’s health benefits extend to your skin, heart, hair and even your waistline.
Green Tea and Vanilla for Weight Loss
According to a 2003 study published in the Journal of Drug Metabolism and Disposition, drinking Loose Vanilla Green Tea could lead to weight loss. The research demonstrated that its EGCG content helps inhibit an enzyme that breaks down the hormone known as norepinephrine.
Doing so enabled norepinephrine to assist in promoting the breakdown of fat. Just don’t expect it to do all of the hard work.
Other Abilities Associated with the Tea
According to a 2006 study published in the Journal of Herbal Pharmacology, the Tea has L-theanine capable of increasing Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid (GABA), which alleviates mild anxiety.
Meanwhile, according to a 2004 clinical trial published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry, it might prevent the cognitive decline experienced by those with Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease.
