If you’re on social media, you’ve probably seen the “tummy tea” craze. It seems like every time I log on, I see an ad or someone promoting it. It wasn’t until I saw a fitness model that I really admire mention it that I decided to do a little more research. Now, she wasn’t necessarily promoting the tummy tea, but she did mention the benefits of green tea and how drinking it can help you lose weight naturally.
About Green Tea:
When you drink a cup of quality tea, you’re actually getting a large amount of beneficial substances with potent biological effects.
The best known of these is caffeine. A cup of green tea contains much less caffeine (24-40 mg) than a cup of coffee (100-200 mg), but still enough to have a mild effect.
Caffeine is a well known stimulant that has been shown to aid fat burning and improve exercise performance in numerous studies.
Green Tea has a massive range of antioxidants… being loaded with potent antioxidants called catechins. The most important of these is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism.
