Enjoy a cup of green tea and lose fat!
In 2005, a research article was published in the American Society for Clinical Nutrition that reported the results of a study focusing on the effects of green tea catechins on human body fat levels. Catechins are a type of flavonoid, which is a group of biologically active compounds also known as phytochemicals. Previous studies on green tea catechins had uncovered their strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, but this study was the first to report the benefit of fat loss from green tea extracts. Participants in that study drank 690 mg of catechins daily in the form of green tea extract for three months. At the end of this 12-week double-blind study, the researchers came to the conclusion that catechins might be useful to prevent and improve lifestyle-related diseases and obesity. They discovered that by stimulating the calorie burning mechanism in the body, catechins may trigger weight and fat loss.
