Reasons to Drink REAL Fresh Green Tea – No 1

For some time now, it seems like the health community is abuzz with talk of green tea – and for good reason! There doesn’t seem to be much that this supercharged beverage can’t do.

Green tea, like its black tea relatives, is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference lies in how the leaves are treated. To make black and oolong teas, the leaves are dried and fermented. For green tea, on the other hand, the leaves are simply dried and withered, leaving many natural antioxidants intact.

One antioxidant group found in green tea – preserved by the gentle process by which the leaves are treated – is known as the catechin group. Six different catechins have been identified in green tea by researchers.These antioxidants have been linked to many health benefits, including being one of your greatest allies in the war against belly rolls.

1. Melt stubborn belly fat!

When you sit down or bend over are there a few extra rolls getting in the way? Belly rolls can be super stubborn and even though you may be exercising and eating well, they may still plague you. Here is some good news….

A 2009 study published in the Journal of Nutrition tested the effects of green tea catechins on a group of overweight and obese adults. The group was placed on an exercise plan in order to help them lose weight, while supplementing with the catechins. On their results, the study authors wrote:

“Percentage changes in total abdominal fat area… subcutaneous abdominal fat area, and fasting serum triglycerides (TG) were greater in the catechin group. These findings suggest that green tea catechin consumption enhances exercise-induced changes in abdominal fat and serum TG.”

These observed benefits may be at least partly due to the presence of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a noteable catechin found in green tea. Along with helping to fight belly fat, EGCG has been linked to increasing metabolism, releasing stored fat in the body, and combating cravings.

Green tea may even help to rid your body of unwanted cellulite.
