If you’re returning to the gym after some time away, start drinking green tea right now. Epigallocatechin gallate, the active ingredient in green tea and better known as EGCG, provides a slew of health and fitness benefits to those who imbibe it, but a new discovery makes it especially important for those looking to regain lost muscle. A recent study showed that previously conditioned subjects who drank green tea and resumed exercise after a period of inactivity regained their lost strength and muscle mass more quickly than those who did not drink the brew. Just one more reason to have that cup of green tea with your sushi.
