Are you drinking green tea to help boost your energy, boost your metabolism, or to help you burn fat to lose weight?
I drink a combination of red, white, and green energizing tea as a low calorie and lower caffeine, healthy option for energy and maintaining a healthy weight.
Coffee and other higher caffeine drinks, or energy drinks that are also full of sugar, may have an effect on your metabolism but they certainly are not healthy to drink on a regular basis.
Does Green Tea Help With Weight Loss
Researchers are learning more about green tea every day and there are ongoing clinical studies about the connection with weight loss in terms of determining exactly how beneficial green tea may be with your metabolism and your weight loss.
One study that was referenced when the tea I drink was introduced showed that men who were given a combination of caffeine and green tea extract burned more calories than those given only caffeine or a placebo.
It makes sense, without studies, that drinking a low calorie drink such as green tea as part of your daily liquid content would be effective in keeping your calories from liquids on the low end. Together with mostly water that you drink while on a diet, it gives you something enjoyable to drink.
Hidden calories are being blamed for many people becoming overweight or obese.
Of course you shouldn’t be drinking soda if you are trying to lose weight. If you replace that soda or other high calorie or sugary drink with green tea, you will not only be getting more nutrients but also reducing calories and fat.t.
I was searching for a research article to link here for you, but did not find any at this time that I thought worthy. It would be worth a few minutes of your time to do a search since content that shows up for you may be more helpful than what I found today.
What Are the Benefits of Green Tea?
Antioxidant Content – highest concentration of antioxidants
Polyphenols – Catechins – antioxidants that are also anticarcinogenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic, thermogenic and antimicrobial activities
Taurine – for energy AND well-being
Matcha – in its pure form has proven to be the most healthy and health beneficial tea in the world
Natural ‘boost’ of Energy – healthier than high caffeine or high sugar drinks
Low in Calories and Caffeine
Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols. Antioxidants are substances that fight free radicals — damaging compounds in the body that change cells, damage DNA, and even cause cell death.
I have grown to love AND appreciate the Shaklee science that goes into every product, including the green tea (combination of green, white and red teas).
They take natural nutrition to a whole new level in the way that they find complimentary ingredients to make them work better together than individually. This can be found across the whole brand – the science behind the products sets the brand apart.
In the case of green tea, Shaklee made Energizing Tea that I drink with a blend of three exotic teas: red, white and green that combine to give you not only the benefits of green tea but a healthy, natural energy boost any time you need it.
Energizing Tea was especially designed to be part of the healthy weight management program.
Did you know that research shows regular tea drinkers have a lower percentage of body fat than non-tea drinkers?
You can drink green tea hot as many people enjoy drinking tea of any kind, or cold (iced) for a very refreshing drink. Both are natural, healthy, energy boosting choices.
