Are Green Teas and Weight Loss Teas the Same

Chinese Green Tea is made solely from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are prepared by undergoing minimal oxidation as they are processed to retain as much of the useful elements as possible green tea originates from China and has been used by the Chinese for thousands of years to promote good health and longevity.

More recently green tea has been grown in other parts of Asia with different varieties being grown in different areas depending on the region.

Green tea has over the past few decades been subjected to intensive scientific and medical studies to determine its many reported health benefits. Green tea has been found to have many properties; it has been shown to reduce the chance of some heart diseases, certain cancers and reducing of high blood pressure. It is the effects that it has on the body when used as a weight loss product that has hit the headlines in recent years. It stimulates the metabolism to enable the body to burn more calories, which in turn burns body fat. This is a process known as thermo genesis. It also causes fat oxidation.

There are two ways to lose weight, we either reduce energy intake, or increase our energy expenditure. People are quite naturally looking for options that can help safely help raise the metabolism without the need for extensive exercise or effort...

In a clinical study shown in the world famous American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, it was proven that drinking green tea caused a significant increase in energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), and at the same time having a significant effect on fat oxidation.

Before the tests some of the effects were originally thought to be down to the amount of caffeine in green tea, but the tests discovered that the tea actually has properties that go beyond the effects that would be caused by caffeine alone. When the researchers carried out tests using the same levels of caffeine that is in green tea, the tests failed to record any change in the metabolism. It was prove that the active ingredients in green tea all interact with each other to promote increased metabolism and fat oxidation.

The test on green tea showed that drinking green tea accounted for a 4% increase in Thermo genesis, (the body�s rate of burning calories), which means substantial implications for weight control when taken daily.

If users are going to incorporate green tea into their weight loss plans, what is the best way to go about it? The best way would be to choose a reputable brand that can offer approved results, research into the best types of green tea and find a blend that incorporates a variety of these into its mix.
