Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog ran from 2006 to 2016 and was intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Enviga burns a few extra calories, but will you lose weight?

    According to the manufacturer, this carbonated beverage, which contains green tea extract, calcium, and caffeine, burns about 100 calories for every three 12-ounce cans consumed. agrees that a few small studies suggest that the combination of caffeine and green tea extract might temporarily increase heat production and help burn more calories.

    However, simply drinking Enviga doesn’t guarantee weight loss, and its value in this regard is not supported by clinical study results. The Enviga website avoids any mention of weight loss.

    Enviga is one of several products categorized as calorie-burning and satiety foods.
