Consuming Green Tea To Aid Weight Loss

Jul 1, 2008
Medical research is currently being carried out in an attempt to substantiate the many uses of green tea, but the results will take years to obtain. One simple use we can tease out of the complicated benefits is the use of green tea as an antioxidant. It is believed that drinking green tea or ingesting it in liquid or tablet form will provide your body with the antioxidants that will enable you to burn calories in a natural manner and thus achieve weight loss.

One of the major benefits to the human body's functions is the abilities to speed up cell regeneration and slow the process of oxidation in the body; these serve to guard your body against aging. Most weight control products using green tea rely on the laxative and toxin excretion properties of the green tea that will speed up the rate at which your body burns fuel. Increasing the fuel burning, or metabolic rate, will prevent fatty tissue (which is in reality excess calories) from forming.

Green tea works best when used in addition to good eating habits and moderate amounts of exercise; the user must be committed to using the tea in conjunction with other lifestyle changes to achieve results. Remember that losing weight also involves mental lifestyle changes as well.

When brewed in the traditional manner as tea, it is best to use it late in the day while preparing to sleep. During the first 48 hours, some users may feel some gastrointestinal discomfort but it should slow within a short time. Although this may worry some new users, they need to keep in mind that these adjustments mean that the tea is changing your body's digestive processes, which is the reason you are taking the green tea. A change may be seen within the first seven days of use if the user also exercises, drinks adequate water, and eats enough fruits and vegetables.

A common additive to green tea is ginseng root extract, as the combination makes both ingredients work more effectively. Ginseng root not only provides minerals and vitamins the body desperately needs during a detox regimen, but it has long been called the 'root of life' in Tibet and China.

Also known as an energy and immune system booster, ginseng, like green tea, is a natural and safe way to lose weight even when taken over a six-month period. So enjoy, and start losing weight the natural way.
