Green Tea is the most famous on our list today, and a lot of us already consumed it on many occasion. The benefits of green tea are numerous but we will focus on the one that interest us for this article: Fat burning and antioxident activity.
Green tea main active ingredients is called EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), and it’s responsible for the Fat burning activity along with the small amount of caffeine in the green tea.
So these powerful components in green tea will increase you metabolism and stimulate your body to burn more fat leading to significant weight loss in some cases. And that’s how it works.
On the other hand, Green tea is known for its antioxidant activity. So what’s that all about and why it’s important. Well “oxidation” is a process that happens inside our cells and is the main cause for most harm in our body and may lead to in some cases to cancer. Fortunately for us Green tea is known to have anti-oxidant properties, which will stop this harmful process. So if you drink green tea on a regular basis you will have a more healthy life.
What we think: We all heard about it somehow, some people say it’s a miraculous ingredient for everything. It’s used in Detox Teas, weight loss pills and even in skincare and facial creams. So obviously we are expecting a lot from this “magical” Ingredient. Unfortunately not all the product using Green tea meet the expectation of the consumer in giving really visible results.
A lot of companies will use low concentration or low quality of this ingredient just to be able to market their products as containing “green tea” but in term of effectiveness we see no miracle. So be more careful next time you buy a Green tea detox or a weight loss product and make sure this product has good customer feedback before you spend your money. Finally Green tea is a major contributor to weight loss and a healthy life.
