Would you like to add something delicious and invigorating for weight loss? Japanese green tea not only helps- it tastes great and gives you an excellent energy boost!
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. Drinking Japanese green tea regularly can increase your metabolism and help burn fat safely and naturally.
Japanese green tea lowers cholesterol and increases energy expenditure.
Green tea also causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing sharp increases in blood-insulin levels. This promotes the burning of fat.
The thermogenic effect was originally attributed to its caffeine content. However, green tea stimulates fat thermogenesis far greater than a comparable amount of pure caffeine. Catechin-polyphenols, in particular epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and caffeine work synergistically. It has been shown to increase 24-hour energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
Weight is gained as excess sugars and fats are stored in the body as fat cells. Green tea catechins can help with weight loss by inhibiting the movement of glucose in fat cells. EGCG is very effective. There is now good evidence that green tea catechins are related to reductions in body fat.
Japanese green tea is delicious and has weight loss benefits.
