Green tea is good for glucose: it slows your rise in blood sugar after you eat. It also contains caffeine which increases metabolism and helps you burn more calories. Green tea also has cancer fighting antioxidants so it really is a great thing to add to your diet.
Don’t be fooled. There are many products out there that advertise weight loss using green tea. Don’t get the pills or the patch. Those companies just want your money. To get the real weight-loss benefits of green tea, you should get it from your local health foods store and brew it your self.
The way I make it is I heat up the water (filtered water not tap) on the stove (don’t use the microwave) then I pour the hot water into a cup then put the teabag in. Dont heat the water with the teabag in it because that makes it “boil out” some of the natural healing properties of the tea. Then I add soy milk and a drop of organic honey for a hot and healthy treat. I try to make two cups a day. Try it!
