Benefits of Green Tea

I came across wih an article in the internet about the benefits of green tea. According to the article, our consumptions on green tea may benefits of lose weight (good news for me), preventing cancer, controls high blood pressures, refreshes our body and etc.

For example; Japanese green tea can burns fat naturally.Green tea contains high concentrations of catechin polyphenols. These compounds work with other chemicals to intensify levels of fat oxidation and thermogenesis, where heat is created in the body by burning fuels such as fat. Drinking Japanese green tea regularly will increase your metabolism and help burn fat safely and naturally.

Green tea can lower cholesterol and increase energy expenditure.
Green tea also causes carbohydrates to be released slowly, preventing sharp increases in blood-insulin levels. This promotes the burning of fat.

Weight is gained as excess sugars and fats are stored in the body as fat cells. Green tea catechins can help prevent obesity by inhibiting the movement of glucose in fat cells. Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) has been found to be especially effective. There is now good evidence that green tea catechins are related to reductions in body fat.
