Green Tea Weight Loss Advantages - Real Or Fake?
People are drinking green tea to lose weight. Don't be fooled by green tea claims. Studies suggest the green tea and caffeine combination in weight loss products is potentially harmful.
Green Tea And Your Metabolism
Medical studies agree that green tea is a healthy low calories drink. In fact, green tea is a very nutritious substitute for some sugary drinks on supermarket shelves. Some medical research studies suggest that green tea affects the fatty tissue and metabolism in a very interesting way.
Green Tea Promotes Weight Loss
A weight loss study discovered that green tea might promote weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate in the body. It is important to note that a highly concentrated form of green tea, in liquid and extract form, was used in the study. You'd probably have to consume several cups of green tea daily, to receive the same benefits.
The weight loss study also concluded that green tea combined with caffeine increased the weight loss amount. Green tea and caffeine are a common combination in numerous highly concentrated green tea weight loss products. However, don't rush out to buy green tea products just yet. Studies suggest the green tea and caffeine combination is possibly harmful. It appears that combining green tea with caffeine reduces the green teas positive health potential.
Green Tea/Caffeine/Limited Weight Loss
Here is something important to consider; caffeine increases the heart rate and blood pressure. This is more than likely dangerous for anyone with high blood pressure or heart conditions. Furthermore, green tea's weight loss benefits are exaggerated. Health professionals suggest the best way to reduce weight begins with a good exercise plan that burns calories. Combine that exercise plan with a nutritional, low calorie diet plan. However, green tea without harmful additives, is still a very soothing and flavorful herbal drink. Try freshly brewed green tea with a bit of lemon and honey for taste.
