People have celebrated the health benefits of green tea for millennia. Analyses suggest that ingesting green tea may positively influence skin health, assist in weight loss, and decrease risks of cardiovascular disease. Green tea is developed from unoxidized leaves and is one of the least processed kinds of tea. In traditional Eastern medicine, people use green tea to contain bleeding and heal wounds, aid digestion, enhance heart and mental health, and control body temperature. Studies suggest that green tea could positively impact liver conditions, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, and more.
GREEN TEA - THE ATHLETIC PERSPECTIVE
While working on the Fully Charged formula, we knew it needed something that would provide a quick-acting shot of mental and physical energy, giving that "something's going on here" feeling. Caffeine would do the job, but just adding "X" amount of synthetic caffeine wasn't something we wanted. Way too many products toss lots of caffeine in their composition, and that's not what Fully Charged is meant to be.
That's why we selected green tea extract for our formula. It provides the "wake-up slap" component through a small amount of naturally occurring caffeine (approximately 15 mg per serving), but, more notably, green tea extract delivers benefits far exceeding that. It contains polyphenols such as catechins—including a significant one known as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG)— providing antioxidant and cardiovascular health support.
Fully Charged: pre-exercise booster!
Fully Charged is the "real deal" when it's about pre-workout supplements! Its unique formula boosts athletic performance before starting your race. Results are:
- Higher-quality workouts.
- Better race results.
- New personal bests.
Each serving of Fully Charged incorporates 100 mg of green tea extract, regularised to hold no less than 50% polyphenols. It means you'll get a precise quantity of all of the green tea's beneficial compounds, including EGCG, in each serving.
The magic of Fully Charged comes from its perfect balance of vegetable extracts, fruit extracts and amino acids designed to increase blood flow. Its purpose is to prepare all your body's physiological systems to perform optimally. It also includes nutrients to support mental acuity and a little natural caffeine (from green tea, remember?) to give that extra motivation boost. The whole product is greater than the sum of its parts, which goes for each Hammer Nutrition product.
