Few natural substances equal the powerful combined benefits of green tea and lemon.
Green tea has been shown to boost the body’s metabolism and fight disease. And, when coupled with lemon, green tea’s strength increases dramatically.
Green Tea and Weight Loss in studies, people who drank three to five cups a day for three months lost 4.6 per cent of their body weight.
Other studies show drinking two to four cups daily can burn an extra 50 calories, which equals about five pounds lost every year.
Compounds in green tea known as polyphenols help burn fat even when you are at rest. These polyphenols may even block the conversion of calories into fat.
One study confirmed that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in overweight and moderately obese individuals.
Green tea also attacks fat through an amino acid it contains called L-theanine. L-theanine has a calming effect on the nervous system and can help reduce stress-related surges in cortisol, a hormone linked to fat storage, especially around the belly.
Green Tea Antioxidants Fight Disease. Green tea is unfermented, while black tea is fermented. Because fermenting lowers the polyphenol content and increases the caffeine content, green tea has more polyphenols and less caffeine than black tea.
Green tea’s healthful properties are largely attributed to these polyphenols, which have strong antioxidant properties.
Antioxidants scavenge and neutralize free radicals in the body that damage cells and DNA.
Many scientists believe that free radicals contribute to the ageing process as well. Free radicals occur naturally, but environmental toxins, such as radiation and cigarette smoke, also cause free damaging radicals to occur.
According to studies, antioxidants in green tea may help combat atherosclerosis and heart disease and lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Several studies have shown that both green and black teas help protect against many forms of cancer. And animal studies suggest that green tea may help prevent or slow the development of type 1 diabetes.
