Tea, health and weight loss

Tea is very rich in antioxidants. It is less exciting than coffee but it has excellent energizing qualities and these, unlike coffee, act gradually and continuously. Drinking tea would significantly increase metabolism and it would have an effect throughout the day.


Drinking tea on an empty stomach in the morning would increase the ability to burn excess fat in the body. As it has the effect of stimulating the metabolism, this ensures that several calories would be burned, even at rest and throughout the day. We hear more and more about intermittent fasting. But what does it consist of? This is a continuous 16-hour period without consuming food. Let's take the example that your last meal would be at 18:00. This means that the young person would last until 10:00 the next morning. This would automatically lead to an increase in metabolism that would allow the body to burn the extra calories even at rest. As green tea is also considered a diuretic, naturally, it would allow the elimination of toxins and the elimination of lipids contained in the body. In addition to making this period more enjoyable, green tea is considered by many to be appetite suppressant. Drinking green tea would quickly calm this feeling of hunger, this desire to snack and ensures excellent hydration. 

 As green tea contains an interesting amount of catechins, it is also considered a powerful antioxidant that helps us get rid of free radicals present in the body. Because of this, it helps lower cortisol, the stress hormone that is largely responsible for premature aging of cells.  It would then have a positive impact on cardiovascular diseases, cancers and several other diseases caused by stress. And what about its relaxing effect... Green tea also contains an interesting amount of theanine, an amino acid that has a positive effect on our stress levels both physically and mentally. Naturally, this would cause a relaxing effect. 

 Is the new year off to a great start? Good cup of tea and good health!
