When it comes to weight loss, what most people think about is cutting calories and exercise. However, they overlook the myriad of beneficial substances that can aid them in the process.
Enter green tea.
The potential of this miracle drink to aid in your weight loss program should not be overlooked.
Researchers have found that the caffeine and flavonoids in green tea can help to spike up the body’s metabolic rate. The most important of these flavonoids is a substance called EGCG (Epigallocatechin Gallate), which works to up your calorie and fat burn. This means you’ll burn more calories, even at rest! The compounds found in green tea have also been found to increase fat oxidation and even improve insulin activity.
Roleaf Tip 1: How many cups should you drink per day? Overall weight loss depends on individual body dynamics but as little as 2 - 3 cups a day can help you in your weight loss mission. You can never have too much of course!
Roleaf Tip 2: If you are going to include green tea as a weapon in your weight loss arsenal, it is important to consider different sources and their quality. Packeted and processed green tea sold in commercial stores are often laden with sugar – which will encourage weight gain instead of the other way around. Opt for the natural route instead. Here at Roleaf, we source our green tea only from top-notch suppliers, so you can be sure you are drinking the best available.
Roleaf Tip 3: If it is to your liking, matcha powder is arguably the best form of green tea when it comes to weight loss. This is because the whole leaf is grounded into powder form and consumed as a beverage.
Why not add this extra boost to help you achieve your weight loss goals? A little green tea goes a long, long way.
All the best,
