A great deal has been written about weight loss and green tea. Research tends to indicate that some of the natural chemicals in green tea can help with weight loss.
Weight loss can sometimes seem bewildering and unpredictable. But there are ways to obtain weight loss so don’t get discouraged.
Green tea contains poyphenols and antioxidants. So even if there were no weight loss benefit, green tea is still a fairly ‘healthy’ bet.
Here are some interesting statements found on the above website:
1. A University of Geneva medical study showed that over a 24-hour period, green tea extract increases the metabolic rate by 4%. This increase in fat oxidation was higher than in subjects who used a placebo or caffeine. In addition, this stimulation of thermogenesis and fat oxidation by the green tea extract was not accompanied by an increase in heart rate. Thus, green tea extract has a distinct advantage over stimulant diet drugs, which can have adverse cardiovascular effects, especially for obese individuals with hypertension and other cardiovascular complications. The Green Tea Weight Loss System provides a safe way to burn fat for healthy weight loss.
2. Scientists at the University of Chicago have found that green tea
caused rats to lose up to 21 percent of their body weight. Rats
injected with a green tea extract lost their appetites and
consumed up to 60 percent less food after seven days of daily
injections. The lead scientist on the study explained that a person
would have to drink green tea almost constantly to obtain these
results. Thus, the Green Tea Patch was designed to provide the
constant supply of high potency green tea needed to achieve
these weight loss results.
