Evaluation of Metabolism-Boosting Beverages

2014-08-27 03:17:24 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of Metabolism-boosting Beverages (MBB) containing green tea extract with a standardized amount of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and caffeine.


The study will assess the effect of MBB's on 24 hour energy expenditure by performing indirect calorimetry, and on appetite using visual analogue scales (VAS). The planned sample size is 54 healthy male and female adults, both lean and overweight. We plan to test 6 metabolism-boosting beverages in the following order: 1) Raspberry Tea 2) Banana Shake 3) Chai Latte 4) Strawberry Shake 5) Cappuccino 6) Hot Cocoa. In the order that they are screened, each subject will be assigned to receive 1 of 6 Metabolism-boosting beverages. Each MBB will contain 90 mg EGCG and 100 mg caffeine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Electric power supply devices which convert biological energy, such as chemical energy of metabolism or mechanical energy of periodic movements, into electrical energy.

An imbalanced nutritional status resulted from excessive intake of nutrients. Generally, overnutrition generates an energy imbalance between food consumption and energy expenditure leading to disorders such as OBESITY.

Calculation of the energy expenditure in the form of heat production of the whole body or individual organs based on respiratory gas exchange.

The movement of materials across cell membranes and epithelial layers against an electrochemical gradient, requiring the expenditure of metabolic energy.

The capacity of an organization, institution, or business to produce desired results with a minimum expenditure of energy, time, money, personnel, materiel, etc.
