The Green Tea Weight Loss Guide
Health & Fitness
If you've been trying to lose weight for a while you've probably heard somewhere that green tea is good for you, but what exactly does that mean? How much weight can it help you lose? Why does it help you lose weight? How much should you drink if your main goal is to lose weight?
You can find the answers to all your questions about green tea here:
What exactly is Green Tea anyway?
The term green tea is used to describe teas made specifically from the herb Camellia sinensis. This particular kind of tea has been used as medicine for thousands of years and is one of the most popular drink choices for health conscious people.
How Can Green Tea Improve Your life?
Green tea actually has a huge range of health benefits:
Green tea contains a high concentration of polyphenols and flavonoids, two different types of anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants help keep your blood and your organs clean and healthy. They do this by fighting free radicals, dangerous cells which attach themselves to your regular cells and cause all sorts of damage. Free radicals contribute to many things we associate with aging as well as a number of diseases.
Green tea also has a number of other organic compounds that are good for your health. These are too small to make a big impact unless you're drinking a lot of green tea, but any extra nutrients you can get are good nutrients. Try to stick with the higher quality green teas as these will have somewhat higher mineral ratios and lower quality green teas can contain excessive amounts of fluoride.
The primary active ingredient in green tea is the much loved caffeine. Green tea doesn't contain as much caffeine as coffee, but for most people this is a good thing: it means that green tea can give you the caffeine boost you need without giving you the jitters if you accidentally drink a little bit too much.
Green tea also contains the amino acid L-theanine, which increases the activity of GABA, a regulatory neurotransmitter that produces anti-anxiety effects. L-theanine also increases dopamine, one of the hormones associated with happiness.
Epigallocatechin, another compound found in green tea, is far more effective than vitamin E. Regularly drinking green tea can greatly improve your complexion and dramatically reduce acne. The anti-oxidants also help prevent visible signs of aging such as wrinkles.
The reason green tea has been used for so many years in medicine is because the epigallocatechin it contains is an effective anti-inflammatory that can help reduce most forms of pain, including pain caused by arthritis. It's also been proven to help produce the loss of bone density.
Drinking three glasses of green tea every day—that's just one with every meal—has been shown to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease by up to 16%. The specific amount of caffeine in green tea helps eliminate extra salt in the body and prevents the transformation of low-density lipoprotein into oxidized LDL, the form of cholesterol most likely to cause heart issues.
The epigallocatechin found in green tea prevents the growth of cancerous cells in your body and is particularly effective in preventing stomach cancer, bladder cancer, lung cancer and prostate cancer.
Many people believe drinking it immediately after a cancer surgery will help prevent re-occurrence.
Drinking green tea has been proven to noticeably improve your metabolism. Drinking five 250ML cups of green tea every day can help you burn an extra 90 calories. It might not sound like a lot, but this one change can help you lose ten pounds every single year.
Caffeine is a mild appetite suppressant, so if you drink lots of green tea you'll be far less tempted to over eat.
The catechins in green tea stimulate your muscles to rely on fatty acids. This means your body burns through carbohydrates more slowly so you can get through longer workouts.
Active compounds in green tea help inhibit the movement of glucose in your fat cells, preventing your blood sugar level from spiking and therefore preventing any sharp increases in your insulin level.
The L-Theanine in green tea does more than just give you extra energy. It also reduces stress and prevents anxiety, keeping your emotions steady so you can be at your best.
Types of Green Tea
There are actually several different flavours and types of green tea to choose from. You can purchase either green tea bags or loose leaf tea. Loose leaf tea is often higher quality and provides a more authentic taste and experience, but it can get messy and frustrating to make all the time.
