My thick and muscular arms, built up from years of lifting heavy, pick up a porcelain teacup. I sip the green tea. It tastes good.
Steroids: Tea has been found to cause chemical changes similar to those of anabolic steroids.Fat: Tea reduces body fat. Scientific research says that green tea is more effective than black tea.Muscle: Tea increases muscle gain. Tea does not only reduce fat mass. It also increases muscle bulk.
And: This leads to an increase in available testosterone. It increases athletic performance and muscle growth.
The anabolic steroid testosterone can be used by athletes to enhance athletic performance and muscle growth.... Inhibitors of testosterone glucuronidation could have an impact on circulating testosterone levels, thus aiding performance, as well as... masking testosterone abuse.Dietary green and white teas
And: This means tea is a performance-enhancing substance similar to anabolic steroids. It increases circulating testosterone.
The results from this study showed that testosterone glucuronidation was inhibited by the green and white tea extracts... they inhibit testosterone glucuronidation.... Dietary green and white teas
Info: The study tried to determine if tea, both green and black, helps increase muscle mass. Were these rats built?
Rats: These rats were fed a high-fat diet—15% of calories from fat. I am not a rat. But this study can help us understand.
Rats were fed a 15% fat diet for 6 months from 4 weeks of age and were supplied GT, BT, EGCG or water. GT and BT reduced body fat.... GT and EGCG increased lean mass.Green tea, black tea: body composition
Catechin: EGCG means epigallocatechin-3-gallate, which is a catechin in green tea—it prevents disease.
So: We see that black tea contains less of the healthy catechins than does green tea. So black tea is still good for you, but less so.
And: Black tea has similar, but lesser, effects as green tea. It is still a healthy drink.
However: Both black and green tea have an effect. Yet the benefits of green tea tend to be bigger.
Thus: Bodybuilders should consume tea on a regular basis. It has many positive effects.
Note: Animal studies involving muscle mass often apply to humans too. Obviously rats are not the same as humans so caution must be used.
1. Heat water. I use an electric hot water heater. This heats the water—about 8 cups—to boiling.2. Add loose leaf tea. I then put about 5 spoonfuls of high-quality gunpowder green tea in a pot.3. Pour hot water. I pour the hot water onto the loose leaf tea. I sometimes like to briefly stir it, but I am not sure if this helps.4. Wait three minutes. It is important not to wait too long—if you do, your tea will be very bitter.5. Pour tea into four large mugs. I have four large-size mugs. I use a single-cup tea strainer to strain out the tea leaves.6. Let it cool. Some prefer to drink hot tea, but this can scald your throat. Instead you can wait for it to cool and quickly drink it.
Hot water: If you make tea every day, having a good way to heat water is important. I prefer an electric hot water heater.Loose-leaf green tea: I recommend going for price and quality. High quality tea has more catechins, which improve body composition.Tea strainer: This is a little insert you can place into a mug or cup. When you pour tea with leaves over it, its strains out the leaves.Mugs: Having several large mugs makes this approach easier as well. Sometimes I just strain the tea into another pot.
Note: In one study, rats with type 2 diabetes were given matcha powder for four months. Their health improved.
Heart: Fat and cholesterol levels went down. In humans this could result in a decreased rate of heart attack and stroke.
These results suggest that matcha protects against hepatic and renal damage through the suppression of renal AGE accumulation, by decreases in hepatic glucose, triglyceride, and total cholesterol levels, and by its antioxidant activities.Matcha, a powdered green tea
Tip: This means that a bodybuilder who drinks green tea will have improved dental health.
And: His overall health will also be improved. In older people, this has even been measured to increase muscle mass.
The effects of green tea extract on caries inhibition of hamsters and on acid resistance of human tooth enamel have been suggested....Green tea: periodontal and general health
Tip: Polyphenols are one part of tea. Green tea (in moderation) may help build stronger bones.
Animal studies reveal that intake of tea polyphenols have pronounced positive effects on bone as shown by higher bone mass and trabecular bone volume, number, and thickness... resulting in greater bone strength.Tea and bone health
Result: Positive effects were detected in six weeks. Thus we find that drinking tea may help with male health issues.
Oral administration of [tea extract] improved LUTS and quality of life in as little as 6 weeks.Tea benefits urological health
In summary, these data suggest that nutritional support with antioxidants may be useful in preventing oxidative damage and the progression of NASH.Black tea, non-alcoholic steatohepatitis
And: Tea helped me. I transformed from a pathetic weakling to the man I am today. If you are not happy with your body, I recommend tea.
