Everywhere I look, I see green tea being advertised as a way to loose weight, improve your brain function, and burn fat among other uses. My close friend always read the claims with a skeptical eye. Yeah, right. How can one drink do so much?

After a while I decided to bring more awareness about green tea as I already know green tea is a great way to refresh your body and mind. I like Lipton green tea since it’s easy to find in stores and comes in a variety of flavors from ‘regular’ green tea to ones flavored with passion fruit, berries, and orange etc.. Green tea contains polyphenols that may help burn fat. It also contains caffeine, and catechins – an antioxidant that alters the cell-signaling pathways that control how the cells in the body grow, multiply, and die.

No one brand of green tea has been proven to be more effective than others but personally, I like Lipton green tea because it’s cost-effective than other brands and there are many benefits of drinking Lipton green tea, though, including:

 

Lipton Green Tea Benefits

1. Immunity Boost – Green tea may boost your immune system, making it easier for you to fight off illnesses.

2. Caffeine But Not Too Much – A cup of Lipton green tea contains 35 milligrams of caffeine. That’s enough to give you a boost of energy but not leave you feeling jittery or shaky. Moderate caffeine consumption is considered between 200-300 milligrams a day.

 

Does Green Tea Help To Lose Weight?

3. Weight Loss – Green tea gives our bodies flavonoids which may help you reach your weight loss goal. Drinking an 8 fluid oz serving of Lipton green tea provides 150 mg of flavonoids. It also has zero grams fat, zero milligrams of sodium and zero grams of carbohydrates.

4. Zero Calories – Among other Lipton green tea benefits, it also contains zero calories, which makes it a great addition to your healthy lifestyle. However, there is no need to add milk or sugar in Lipton green tea but you can add lemon or a no calorie sweetener like Stevia to enhance the flavor without adding calories. Studies conducted on people living in Japan and China showed that long term green tea drinkers had reduced weight and less fat around their waists.

5. Packed With Antioxidants – The antioxidants found in green tea may block energy or ingested calories being converted to fat. Blocking fat storage and production may help keep those unwanted pounds away.

6. Hydration – Green tea is usually next to water when it comes to what’s best to keep you hydrated. It also contains natural calming ingredients that may help you improve metabolism and manage stress better.

7. Keeps Heart Healthy – Green tea is a great source of flavonoids known as catechins. Studies show flavonoids enriched diets helps to burn more fat and also links to many health benefits – especially heart health.

A study published in American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2010 shows “Catechins and caffeine together may help to lose more weight than taking caffeine alone”. The good news is green tea contains both (as we mentioned above).
