You may have heard of people using green tea for weight loss. But the question is, does it really work?
In this article, we shall take a look at how green tea can help you lose weight and keep you healthy at the same time.
Obesity Is A Problem
In India, obesity is a well recognized medical problem. Its prevalence is drastically increasing in the last decade. Recent studies show that over 135 million people in India are currently obese.
Being obese brings with it a number of health problems including diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, lung disease, and even gallbladder disease.
The primary reason for developing obesity in India is high-calorie intake. Many others consume a lot more food than what is required. With the rising number of restaurants and an increasing number of home deliveries, most of us have stopped consuming good quality home-cooked food and now eat food that is prepared outside a lot more.
It has been clinically proven that reducing body weight to the tune of 5 to 10% can lead to marked health improvement. However, maintaining a low body weight can be difficult.
This is where the benefits of green tea for weight loss stem from.
Green Tea For Weight Loss - How It Works
The primary components of green tea include compounds called catechin polyphenols. This primarily includes epigallocatechin gallate and caffeine, both of which increase energy expenditure and oxidization of fat, hence helping burn fat.
Green tea also has the property of moving fat out of your cells. This is called the ‘mobilization of fat’. It does so by preventing the breakdown of norepinephrine, thus increasing its levels. This is a hormone that helps promote fat breakdown.
The fat breakdown is particularly higher when you exercise, so make sure you consume green tea after a workout or even after your meal.
The overall effect is clear and sustained weight loss.

When choosing your green tea, make sure it is an organic brew that is harvested from the best tea leaves.
