Chinese Green Tea & Weight Loss

If the human body had a relationship status, Facebook would tell me “its complicated”. Explaining weight loss can be much the same.

It’s a fact we all want to look and feel amazing, and more often than not weight loss is viewed as the solution.  The recent quick fix phenomenon in diet and detox teas can offer you quick weight loss. However, the weight lost isn’t from burning fat but rather using a laxative to release body fluids for temporary results. Results gained will be lost once you replenish lost fluids or risk severe dehydration.

There isn’t a miracle cure to weight loss just yet. Chinese green tea can assist you in reaching your ideal weight and improve your skin completion like it has assisted Hollywood self-confessed green tea drinkers Gwyneth Paltrow, Courtney Love, Sandra Bullock and Heidi Klum.

This is the science behind how it works:

Tea polyphenols breaks down excessive fats

Fats consumed are converted into a form called triglycerides for the human body to utilise as energy with any over supply stored as body fat. Chinese green tea contains high level of antioxidants, with one type more scientifically known as polyphenol. Polyphenol will activate the enzyme lipase that breaks down excess triglycerides to reduce your body fat composition.

EGCG increases the speed of metabolism

EGCG to scientists stands for epigallocatechin gallate, which is a particular antioxidant in Chinese green tea responsible for increasing your speed of metabolism. As the body burns energy more efficiently it breaks down stored fat cells for energy sooner. This process is known to scientists as thermogenesis and to us as “burning fat”.

Caffeine without the additional calories

Caffeine like EGCG also increases the speed of metabolism. When consumed in beverages like coffee, energy drinks and soft drinks it will also contain milk and/or sugar that will reverse any weight loss properties. Chinese green tea is to be enjoyed on its own and is able to replenish body fluids without the additional calories to support your healthy weight loss campaign. 

To new green tea drinkers, we recommended our Dragon Pearl Jasmine Green Tea for its great health benefits and sweet jasmine taste.
