It has been discovered that green tea doesn’t just have a unique and tasty flavor (although not everyone would agree with that) with its lovely green color. Researchers have shown that the benefits of green tea on the human body are beyond all belief and it can increase fat burning and help you lose weight.

So, if you are a tea lover or like healthy beverage options and want to lose weight naturally it’s supposed to be the easiest way for you to sip up the green tea and slim down!
Now I am going to tell you how it works and why you should drink green tea every now and again for losing weight. Read on to discover more details……
How does green tea promote weight loss naturally?
Green tea actually can promote weight lose in multiple ways….
By fat burning
The main bioactive ingredients present in green tea responsible for promoting weight loss by cutting fat is EGCG (epigallocatechin-3- gallate), a potent antioxidant and caffeine.
In a more sophisticated study about this green tea, scientists found that the EGCG present in green tea increased levels of fat burning hormones that tell fat cells to break down fat. This releases fat into the bloodstream and makes it available as energy.
Although a cup of green tea contains much less caffeine, it is still enough to burn out fat. One study showed that those who consumed green tea and caffeine lost an average of 2.9 pounds during a 12-week period, while sticking to their regular diet.
By boosting up metabolism rate
Some studies found that green tea can help you burn out about 3-4% more calories every day by increasing metabolism rate, even at a resting condition. I am sure this will make you happy if you are weight conscious.
By enhancing fat burning with exercise
It has also been found that green tea's effect on weight loss may be more noticeable if a person exercises. In one study, men who took green tea extract and exercised burned 17% more fat than men who didn’t use green tea extract.
By reducing appetite
Also, another discovery that will make any weight conscious person happy is that your cup of green tea could suppress your appetite. So, it’s obvious, less food means less weight. Woo-hoo!
Now at last allow me to divulge more smile-inducing information with you that, no need to worry if you are not in a “tea mood” because, you can also burn fat by taking weight loss supplements containing green tea leaf extract like, THERMOGEN. Do you know why? Because the scientific studies are usually done by using green tea extract.
