Green Tea and Fat Loss

Green Tea has long been celebrated for its weight loss and antioxidant abilities when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Research has continually shown that, when regularly drunk, it\'s effect is to raise the body\\\\\\\'s metabolism and hence burn more calories. We all know what burning more calories means now don\'t we!

We can divide the effects of Green Tea into three main sections.

1. It increases thermogenesis
Green tea contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work with other chemicals to intensify levels of fat oxidation and thermogenesis, where heat is created in the body by burning fuels such as fat

2. It Lowers cholesterol
Green tea can lower cholesterol and increase energy expenditure- it also causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing sharp increases in blood-insulin levels. This promotes the burning of fat

3. It enhances Fat oxidation
Drinking Green Tea Can Limit Weight Gain - Weight is gained as excess sugars and fats are stored in the body as fat cells. Green tea catechins can help prevent obesity by inhibiting the movement of glucose in fat cells. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has been found to be especially effective. There is now good evidence that green tea catechins are related to reductions in body fat

In addition, green tea contains a small amount of caffeine (1% or 5 mg), so it serves as a mild appetite suppressant

But how much is enough and what if I can\'t handle the taste?
The taste of green tea is much the same as regular tea but it may take some getting used to. Many companies do manufacture a variety of flavoured green tea such as Lavender, Lemon, Blackberry and many more so it\'s certainly worth exploring your local super-market. Drinking 5-6 cups a day should show some benefits.
But it is also possible to take green tea in capsule form. These doses range from 100mg to 500mg - 500mg is an ideal dose to take daily, but you may wish to experiment with it.
