Looking For Weight Loss Solutions? Try Green Tea Today

For several years now, there has been a lot of attention focused on the weight loss potentials of certain teas. Most famous among the teas that are said to have properties which can help beat obesity is green tea. A lot of people had discovered this ancient Chinese tea for weight loss and other health benefits.

Although the tea has been used for centuries in China and in other parts of Asia, it was only during the recent decades that the Western world have known and believed the health benefits of green tea. It was when supplements containing green tea extract became popular that more discussions were focused on the way it affects the body, and how it is beneficial, especially to the act of losing weight.

The Chinese seldom have obese people in their population, despite the fact that their diets have a high content of fat. As many researches have already proved, the tea that is often a part of the Chinese meal is responsible for the well maintained weight of the Chinese people.

Green tea is rich in catechin polyphenols, specifically the EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which many studies have proved to be the factor responsible for weight loss. These polyphenols are necessary to activate the enzymes that are needed to break down excess triglyceride which is responsible for high cholesterol, hypertension and possible heart risks.

This powerful Chinese tea is also rich in antioxidants, which increases the body' immunity to certain diseases. It has high thermogenetic content, which can assist the body in converting fats into fuel, instead of simply being stored in the body's fat cells.

Green tea has caffeine as well, but only half the percentage of what is often in your coffee. Thus, you can also benefit from the increase in energy which can help you be more active, and thus lose pounds. Your body's excess water is also reduced when drinking green tea. Excess water can easily add another 10-15 pounds to your weight. So with regular intake of this tea, you can count on reduction of water weight even during the first weeks of using it regularly.

Ideally, if you art thinking of taking green tea for weight loss, it is often advised that you should have 2-3 cups of the tea everyday. However, do not think that this is all you need to do in order to have effective weight loss. You would also need to regulate your eating habits, and do physical exercise, or take time to get into sports in order to be physically active.

Drinking green tea may save your life, or the life of any one person who is obese. If the taste is too strong for you, try taking supplements with green tea extracts, instead.
