Green Tea for Weight Loss - Tested Positive!

Green tea is not only well known for slowing the progress of certain types of malignant tumours
such as prostate cancer but also improves heart health and cardiovascular function, in a recent study
published online.

Whatsmore, the new research has also revealed that consumption of green tea
extends to more than good health and is in fact an important tool in promoting weight loss.

According to the latest proceedings from the International Tea and Human Health Symposium
conducted by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, there is a huge positive relationship
between the consumption of green tea and human health. Research studies conducted over the
decades have now confirmed that consuming tea is helpful in preventing chronic illnesses including
heart disorders, specific kinds of cancer and type II diabetes. In addition, it is now being revealed
that green tea also improves bone health, activates certain areas of the brain by bolstering mood
enhancement, problem-solving techniques and improving attention.

In the recent issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, there are more than 12 new articles
that emphasise the compelling benefits of consuming green tea on a daily basis. Some important
highlights include:

Boost in weight loss from tea leaf polyphenols. The caffeine content and the polyphenols present in
green tea helps in increasing the expenditure of energy and the oxidation of fat, thus providing
substantial advantages for dieters wanting to achieve and maintain the ideal body weight.

Researchers revealed that participants who consumed green tea with caffeine lost an average of
over three pounds in a short span of 12 weeks, while observing their standard diet. On a similar note, population-based research findings also reveal that actual green tea drinkers have less body
fat, waist to hip ratios and BMIs as compared to non-tea drinkers.
Flavonoids found in green tea improve the quality of bones and bone strength. Considered to be a
major public health concern, osteoporosis is rampantly being seen across the major population at
large. However, there is good news for those afflicted with poor bone quality and bone strength, as
new research indicates that the polyphenols found in green tea are also helpful in boosting bone
strength and bone quality, especially in men and women over the age of 50. In a particular study
conducted among postmenopausal women, scientists reported that consuming over 500 mg of
green tea extract in combination with performing yoga or tai chi helped in reducing inflammation
and increasing muscle strength among the participants.

Other similar studies also found that the
polyphenols in green tea provided a revitalizing effect to bone reconstruction thus helping to
maintain the density of bones and reduce bone loss.
Drinking as little as 1 cup of green tea per day was shown to greatly reduce the incidence of
cardiovascular attacks and other diseases while significantly cutting down the risk of strokes. In
addition, thousands of human intervention studies as well as epidemiological and laboratory
experiments have also shown that green tea possesses potent anti-cancer properties found in the
flavonoids and polyphenols present in them. Some important anti-oxidant effects against certain
types of cancers include tumours of the gastrointestinal tract, breast cancer, skin cancer, lung cancer
and prostate cancer. Green tea not only helps in protecting against these types of cancers but also
inhibits the growth of such tumours and enhances the effectiveness of chemotherapy in patients
undergoing treatment for cancer.
