Caffeine and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), two beneficial compounds found in green tea, have been shown to increase metabolic rate and reduce fat tissue.
However, green tea extracts or supplements have been the primary focus of weight reduction research.
One of the healthiest drinks available is green tea. Antioxidants and other plant components found in abundance may contribute to its healthful effects.
Green tea has been linked by some to increased fat burning and subsequent weight loss. In this post, we take a look at the research connecting green tea with reduced body fat.
Caffeine is one of the chemicals found in green tea. A cup of green tea has just 24–40 milligrams of caffeine, compared to 100–200 milligrams in a cup of coffee.
Numerous studies have shown that the stimulant caffeine helps with fat burning and enhances workout performance.
The antioxidant properties, however, are where green tea really shines. Drinking green tea raises antioxidant levels in the blood, according to studies.
Some fat-burning hormones, such norepinephrine (noradrenaline), may be helped by the active chemicals in green tea, according to animal research.
