Is it time to put down the weight loss pills that are full of junk? Green tea has been scientifically proven to boost your metabolism and aid with weight loss. It could be time to incorporate green tea into your diet.
How does green tea help with weight loss?
A special combination found in green tea……Caffeine and EGCG (beneficial polyphenols) each cause thermogenesis (boost your metabolism) on their own, but they have an enhanced effect when combined. This combination working in harmony is what makes green tea fantastic for weight loss.
How much should I drink?
To get all the amazing benefits of green tea it’s recommended that you drink 5 or more cups a day. Sounds like hard work right or your too busy to drink this much green tea.
This is where matcha green tea can be your secret weapon. What is matcha? Matcha is specially grown green tea leaves that have been grounded into a fine powder, so you can consume all the nutrients & goodness found in the leaves.
1 serving of matcha green tea is the equivalent to drinking 10 cups of regular green tea. That should be enough to boost your metabolism!
In fact a US study found that consuming matcha green tea can increase thermogenesis from a normal 8%-10% of daily energy expenditure, to between 35% and 43% of daily energy.
Hot or cold?
Green tea & matcha green tea can both be consumed hot or cold. We recommend drinking green tea hot only, as lots of the cold green tea drinks you find in shops are loaded with sugar & artificial ingredients (check the label).
Matcha green tea hot has a bitter tastes so we recommend adding a bit of honey to take away the bitterness. It also needs a good stir with an electric or bamboo whisk.
Matcha green tea cold is perfect if you have a busy lifestyle. Simply mix with 100ml of your favourite juice or add to that juicy smoothie you enjoy making.
Green tea is a fantastic way to boost your metabolism & help with weight loss. This is why it’s becoming a common ingredient in weight loss supplements. It’s scientifically proven to help with weight loss, so grab yourself the purest green tea or matcha green tea you can find and drink away.
