Green tea or Camellia sinensis comes from the buds and young leaves of the tea plant. Once harvested, it is left in the open air for a few hours before being dried using heat. Green tea results from a slight oxidation lasting a few hours, unlike black tea which is heated for an entire night.
Due to its caffeine content, green tea helps to suppress the appetite. It therefore boosts the body’s energy expenditure at rest (increases the basal metabolic rate) and stimulates urine production. Due to its EGCG content, it also helps to reduce body fat.
Studies* have shows that taking green tea extract increases energy expenditure and stimulates the breakdown of fats that have built up and are located on the body (waist, hips, stomach), which could help with weight loss.
