Green Tea Best Benefits for Weight Loss 2015

Best Benefits Of Green Tea
1. Weight Loss:
Obesity is one of the biggest problems challenging the world today. A sedentary lifestyle, combined with the craving for junk food and drinks is leading to several obesity-related complications like heart disease, sleep apnea, diabetes, hypertension etc worldwide. To combat this monster, we surely need to incorporate green tea in our daily diet.
As mentioned before, green tea has a natural anti-oxidant present in it, known as catechin polyphenols. In fact, green tea contains ten times the amount of antioxidants that we can find in fruits and vegetables.

 Why are antioxidants good for us?
Certain molecules known as free radicals are produced when our body breaks down food or even due to smoking or drinking. These free radicals attack the healthy cells in our body and lead to several problems including ageing. Antioxidants are certain substances that protect our cells from the damage inflicted by the action of these free radicals.
Scientists have identified six different catechins in green tea, one of them being epigallocatechingallate (EGCG). EGCG in green tea increases the metabolic rate of the human body, which means that it intensifies levels of fat oxidation and the rate at which your body turns food into calories, which in turn aids weight loss. Green tea reduces body fat and bloating, while detoxifying the body and suppressing untimely food cravings. Enabled with diuretic properties, it also eliminates excess water and thereby reduces excess weight. Hence, drinking green tea daily can really help you in your weight loss journey.
