Health professionals recommend green tea to clients for its long list of health benefits including fighting heart disease and cancer, but it can also help stimulate fat loss. Studies have shown that people that combine green tea with exercise and healthy eating habits actually lose more weight than people who just exercise and eat healthier alone.
These studies have shown that substances found in green tea called catechins actually stimulate the body to burn more calories and reduce body fat. These catechins not only showed a decrease in BMI (body mass index), waist size and total body fat but can also help reduce LDL levels (“bad” cholesterol).
Yogi green tea is an organic tea that provides a variety of flavors so you should be able to find one that suits your taste. If you aren’t a fan of drinking hot tea then you can try to put it over ice for a cool refreshing beverage. Try drinking 2-3 cups a day so that you can obtain all the benefits that the green tea has to offer.
While health professionals recommend people drink more green tea, they do warn against purchasing beverages that may claim to contain green tea yet doesn’t truly have the benefits of it. Instead these beverages can contain high amounts of sugar or high fructose corn syrup and contain more calories than an all natural green tea beverage. So be wary of exactly what you buy because it contains “green tea” and stick to teas that you can brew on your own for your green tea benefits.
