Here Are Some Facts About Green Tea:
Green tea is high in polyphenols, like EGCG. These polyphenols help increase your metabolism. By raising your metabolism you will increase the amount of calories burned throughout the day for all activities, and also while sitting, therefore increasing the amount of fat you will burn.
Green tea inhibits fat absorption and helps in glucose regulation. Green Tea helps slow the rise of blood sugar after a meal and prevents insulin spikes. Too much insulin promotes fat storage, so green tea helps prevent the fat from forming. Green tea also acts as a glucose regulator, which helps prevent glucose forming into fat as well.
