Scientific studies have recently confirmed that tea and weight loss has a clear connection. Drinking tea can make a person lose weight by increasing the metabolism. Many weight experts believe that increasing metabolism is one of the best ways to burn fat and lose weight.
The secret behind this method of weight loss lies in a substance known as Polyphenols. This substance has a thermogenizing effect, meaning it can raise the temperature of your body. It is also the substance responsible for increasing metabolism. The rise in body temperature coupled with the increase in metabolism effectively breaks down fat that's stored in the body. The result: a sexier and slimmer body.
With all the different kinds of teas out there, you might want to know what kind manifest the link between tea and weight loss best. Let me give a quick rundown of the different types available and how each can effectively burn fat.
Let's start with black tea, which among all the variants has the least amount of polyphenols. Because of this, black tea is weakest link to this weight loss theory.
A better evidence to support this weight loss theory is green tea which is one of the more popular kind right now. The popularity is mainly because the link of green tea and weight loss has been proven. Green tea can effectively burn fat because of its high polyphenol content.
But do you know that there is a tea that is considered by experts as the best proof to weight loss? This is more powerful than green tea when it comes to burning fat. This is known as Wu-Yi Tea from the Oolong family which contains more than double the amount of Polyphenols that green tea has. The connection between Wu Yi Tea and weight loss has been proven by many doctors around the world.
Wu-Yi Tea is also one of the best tasting available. This is a result of its unique fermenting process. Though it is relatively new in the Western World, Wu-Yi Tea has been a staple in Chinese medicine for centuries.
