If you’re sick of that spare tire you haul around regularly around your waist.    If you’re sick of man-made pharmaceutical treatments which don’t work, you’re not alone.  These treatments not only don’t work typically, but are often dangerous for the users.  What people really need is a clinically proven, natural treatment that can help them lose weight.  One that’s both safe, and highly effective, and well documented to work in clinical trials.  Green tea may just be this solution.

Freshly Brewed Green TeaGreen tea has been used for centuries by the chinese to help them maintain a healthy body, and as a source of caffeine for long work days. It’s been used for so long because of its great health effects, but it wasn’t known until recently just why it worked so well and made people so much healthier.  A new and innovative study from the University of Birmingham compared the fat levels of people who drank green tea and those who did not and found that those who did had much lower levels.  In order to find out why, they conducted a double blind study of green tea extract medicines and placebos on weight loss.  They found that people who consumed green tea extract each day lost a lot more weight than the placebo group, by 500 to 600%.  This was caused by unique benefits offered from the tea, which absorbed fat and increased metabolic rate in users.  In addition. the users who were taking green tea lost 16% of their total body weight over the 30 day study, more than has ever been identified by anything but the HCG diet.

What Are Some of the Benefits of Green Tea?

This study also shows that tea users had better insulin responses than their counterparts.  They had much fewer spikes and valleys in their blood sugar, regardless of the foods eaten.  These more stable blood sugars seemed to help tremendously with cravings they experienced, and helped them avoid “cravings” for sugary and sweet foods, or those with high carbohydrate content.  They experienced much lower incidence of binge eating, much more stable weight, and a better response to food intake while taking green tea extract.  Green tea also was shown in the same study to increase energy in users and help them avoid lethargy during their diets.  Many people drink coffee, but green tea naturally has the equivalent to a quarter cup of espresso in caffeine.  Many people take it before going to the gym to increase their energy and help them keep their routine up at a high level.

Wouldn’t you want a proven, and natural treatment that can help you improve your heart health, cut your risk of diabetes and also your waistline as well? Green tea in several studies has proven to do just that.  Consuming it daily helps cut your risk of heart disease by over 50% and diabetes by as much as 70%.  In addition, a new study shows that taking this extract regularly can cut your risk of breast cancer malignancy by up to 90%.  The benefits do not stop here.  Two of the major components of green tea: catechins and polyphenols, have been proven to increase metabolism and absorb fats we eat.  These help break down lipids our body produces which can lead to weight gain and fat deposition within our bodies.  Not only that, but they also increase our metabolic rate, the rate at which we burn through calories.  Additional benefits identified in studies include things such as anti-oxidants which lower the risk of free radicals (things that have been proven sources of cancers).  This is particularly important as this is the case of almost all non-genetically induced cancers known.

Green tea is certainly a great way to help a person lose weight and get health, but it’s also important to take in other proven aids like HCG or methods which are designed to help you lose weight quickly if you need to do so.  Green tea is a great staple to help you keep the weight off in the long term, however.
