So I’ve decided to finally let the cat out of the bag, which is, GREEN TEA!
If you’re looking to lose some belly fat and achieve glowing, healthy skin, then green tea is definitely for you.
I must admit, I’ve been hooked on green tea for a while now and I drink at least 3-5 cups a day to get the benefits it provides.
Here’s why you should drink green tea.
Green tea has a lot more benefits than the two I mentioned earlier. It is actually considered to have benefits for a variety of health issues, such as cancer and diabetes.
The major compound present in green tea is EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) and this is what makes green tea an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetes, and so much more.
It has also shown improvement in treating acne and oily skin. The EGCG is anti-androgenic which makes it effective at reducing excess oil on the skin.
Less oil = Less Acne.
Now, for all that belly fat and unnecessary bloating, green tea has been linked to increased fat burning especially during exercise.
How? The main antioxidant in green tea, EGCG can help inhibit an enzyme that breaks down the hormone norepinephrine, which in turn breaks down fat, increases blood sugar levels to provide more energy.
I could go on and on … but I think it’s fair to say, a green tea lover will worry a little less.
Stay healthy, stay safe and stay happy.
