Green Tea And Weight Loss

Been on diet pills for long but without any result? Next time you reach out for your diet pills, just check the bottle. Chances are that you will find green tea extract or green tea listed as one of the active ingredients. Though generally diet pills are dangerous and contain many other unhealthy ingredients, diet pills use green tea for a reason. Green tea aids in weight loss efforts by burning fat. Of course, it is not a magic potion that will help you lose 20 pounds in a week. But it has been proven scientifically, that green tea actually blocks fat absorption and burns calories. Here in this article we will take a look at how green tea assists your weight loss efforts.

Green Tea Helps Burn up Fat

Foods including fat and sugar are converted into a substance known as triglycerides in the small intestine and the liver. These triglycerides are then carried by the bloodstream to other tissues where they are used as the fuel source to provide energy for physical activities and life support. The problem arises when triglycerides are present in excess, because they then get transformed into fat which leads to obesity. This is where green tea comes into play; green teas are loaded with polyphenols which stimulate an enzyme, responsible for dissolving excess of triglycerides, thus effectively burning away fat.

Green Tea Accelerates Weight Loss by Stimulating Metabolism

Green tea is loaded with powerful antioxidants known as catechin polyphenols. It is these polyphenols which are responsible for green teas health benefits. One of these polyphenols, known as EGCG stimulates the bodys metabolism rate and thus accelerates weight loss. EGCG in combination with caffeine in the green tea, act like a fat busting pair, by first stimulating the CNS (central nervous system) to release fat in the blood stream. This fat is then used as fuel for the body, providing extra energy and burning body fat in the process.

All this boils down to you shedding a lot more pounds than your diet pill could ever help you achieve.
