it is hard to deny the positive health benefits of green tea especially those related to green tea weight loss. So in case you didn’t know, there are a ton of studies out there where scientists are trying to find the actually benefits of green tea on someone’s weight.
Here’s what they found so far:
A Dutch study divided participants in three groups: caffeinated green tea drinkers, non-caffeinated green tea drinkers, and placebo. They found that the participants in the first group lost the most weight on average over the course of the study. They found that people who drank the non-caffeinated drink also reduced their waistline size and their body weight.
Scientists in Japan conducted another three month study. Here, they used two hundred and forty Japanese men and women as test subjects. Each participant was given varying amounts of green tea extract throughout the day. They found that the participants who drank the highest concentration of green tea extract lost the most fat and weight out of all of the test subjects. That same group of people were also tested with lower blood pressure and a lower ‘bad’ cholesterol count than they had at the beginning of the study.
Likewise, a study in the United States found that men who drank a combined beverage of green tea extract and caffeine burned more calories per day than a group with just caffeine and a placebo group.
While studies vary in how they test the effects of green tea, it is possible to suggest that green tea does in fact help with weight loss.
