Green Tea and Matcha
These teas are known for increasing metabolism. A study published in the American Journal For Clinical Nutrition found that green tea promotes fat oxidation, beyond that explained by its caffeine content – caffeine boosts your metabolism on its own, but green tea’s got that extra mojo.
It’s also been shown that matcha can stop the growth of new fat cells. It triggers the release of fat from fat cells and also helps speed up the liver’s ability to turn fat into energy.
This floral tea can help eliminate excess water weight. This small, yellow flower dots meadows around the world and its roots are known to offer a string of healthy benefits. The dandelion’s use traces back to the 10th century when Arabian physicians revered the root for its cleansing properties and as a natural aid for digestion.
Oolong tea has been studied and proven to be effective in helping obese patients lose weight. It is also recommended for a metabolism boost.
Another great metabolism-booster is pu’erh, a fermented variety from China.
Similar to green tea, white tea can stop new fat cells from forming — it’s been studied and published in the journal Nutrition & Metabolism to help with weight loss.
Black tea is higher in caffeine, and any tea with caffeine will support high energy levels, which will in turn support weight loss. High energy leads to more movement – sip on a cup of black tea before a workout to get a better calorie burn.
