Green tea

Green tea is produced by lightly steaming the freshly picked leaves, whereas black tea leaves are roasted, and so come to be completely oxidised. During this oxidation process the polyphenols in the tea are lost. This is why green tea contains approximately 30-40% polyphenols, and black tea only a maximum of 10%. It is precisely these polyphenols – vegetable substances with powerful antioxidant and antiviral properties – that cause green tea to have so many more health benefits than black tea. Of all the polyphenols in green tea it is the catechins in particular that make it such an exceptional health product, as catechins are found in very few other nutrients. Catechins (also called tea flavonoids) have been proven to have strong anti-inflammatory properties. They protect against heart and circulatory diseases, but recent research has also shown that these polyphenols play an important role in the way the body burns energy and accumulates fat.

Green tea gives your metabolism a boost

Of all the polyphenols in green tea it is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) that is particularly powerful. A number of studies have shown that this substance helps weight loss in different ways. For example, EGCG stimulates the process of thermogenesis (the speed at which your body burns calories). Research shows that green tea gives your metabolism quite a boost.

The catechins in green tea stimulate not only the burning of calories and the lowering of LDL-cholesterol, but they can also assist in the reduction of body fat. Various additional studies show that the catechins in green tea block certain enzymes that are needed for the accumulation of fat.

Green tea keeps your insulin and blood sugar levels under control

Green tea helps to keep your blood sugar levels under control. It stops blood sugar from rising too sharply after a meal, and so avoids high insulin peaks. Insulin peaks result in more fat being stored in the body. Because it helps stabilise the blood sugar, green tea can ensure you won’t have any blood sugar dips, and so you won’t be suffering from extreme feelings of hunger, or have any binges. Furthermore, green tea helps waste products to be eliminated more easily.

Reduced appetite

For people who want to lose weight green tea has another advantage: it can supress your appetite. Green tea extract really is an excellent tool to help you lose weight: it stimulates the metabolism, helps regulate blood sugar levels, helps curb the appetite and prevents the storage of fat. Green tea is also an antioxidant that is 25 to 100 times stronger than vitamin C and E. It can also help lower blood pressure and improve circulation.
