Shaklee Cinch Tea
Shaklee Cinch Tea is a powdered, tea beverage designed to provide a natural energy boost during the day for individuals who are actively cutting back on their caloric intake to facilitate weight loss. It is composed of blend of teas: Matcha Green Tea Powder, Green Tea Extract, Rooibos Red Tea Extract and White Tea Extract and intended for use as part of the Shaklee Cinch™ Inch Loss Plan. Matcha Green Tea Powder is highly valued for its therapeutic health-promoting effects in Japan.*
Rooibos red tea is rich in polyphenolic compounds, including flavonoids such as quercetin and rutin and phenolic acids such as caffeic and ferrulic acids. White tea leaves provide higher amounts of antioxidants than mature green tea. The Green Tea Extract is a good source of catechins, potent antioxidant compounds and a source of naturally present caffeine. The blend of teas has been combined with the non essential amino acid taurine, studied for its role in mental and physical performance.* One serving of Shaklee Cinch™ Energy Tea provides only 5 calories.
For best results, this product should be use as part of the Shaklee Cinch Inch Loss Plan, which also includes the Shaklee Cinch™ Shake Mix, Shaklee Cinch™ Bars, Shaklee Cinch™ 3-in-1 Boost Dietary Supplement, a calorie controlled healthy meal plan, daily physical activity recommendations and other support tools.

Scientific Rationale Cinch Tea
In order to promote a safe and effective rate of weight loss, caloric restriction in combination with increasing energy expenditure (through physical activity) is recommended. However, for many people this can lead to feelings of low energy making weight loss even more difficult. Dips in energy level often result in the selection of unhealthy, high calorie, sugar laden snacks for a boost in energy which in turn, defeats a person’s weight loss efforts. The Shaklee Cinch™ Energy Tea is a healthy, low calorie alternative to help naturally boost energy levels.* It not only provides a healthier alternative to other quick pick-me-ups, but delivers tea catechins and polyphenols that have potent antioxidant effects that protect cells from free radicals.*
In addition, green tea and its polyphenolic compounds such as epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) show promise in supporting weight loss through increased energy expenditure.* The contribution of naturally present caffeine in tea can also provide a gentle stimulatory effect to the central nervous system resulting in beneficial effects such as enhanced mood, memory, alertness and physical and cognitive performance.* In addition, a number of studies examining the effects of taurine combined with caffeine indicating that the addition of taurine may enhance the mental and physical effects of caffeine.*
