Green tea & fat reduction: gets the nod again!

January 24, 2012

Results of a recent study by a team in Taiwan (Hsui-Chen Huang and Jen-Kun Lin) suggest that the intake of green tea, amongst other types (like black tea), improved the fructose-induced high fat levels  and  increased leptin levels in an animal model.

The investigators suggest that it is due, in part to the suppression of FAS protein levels and increased AMPK phosphorylation.


“Evidence has suggested that leptin plays a specific role in the intricate cascade of cardiovascular events, in addition to its well-established metabolic effects. Leptin, a hormone linking adiposity and central nervous circuits to reduce appetite and enhance energy expenditure, has been shown to increase overall sympathetic nerve activity, facilitate glucose utilization and improve insulin sensitivity”.   J. Ren Journal of  Endocrinology

“Yet again green tea is shown to be effective in a model system to reduce fat levels.  The data is building that consuming Green tea could be an effective strategy for reducing fat levels and improving obesity related disorders, for example, cardiovascular issues.”

Green tea is used as a base for the InnOrbit functional drinks: CALM&RELAX,  SLIM&FIT, YOUNG&FUN, UP&GO.

Los resultados de un estudio realizado por un equipo de Taiwán (Hsui-Chen Huang y Lin Jen-Kun) sugieren que la ingesta de té verde, entre otros tipos (como el té negro), mejora de los niveles de grasas y el aumento de los niveles de leptina en un modelo animal.

“Las pruebas muestran que la leptina tiene un rol específico en la cascada compleja de eventos cardiovasculares.   La leptina, una hormona, une el centro de la adiposidad y los nerviosos para reducir el apetito y aumentar el gasto de energía.  Se ha demostrado que la leptina puede subir la actividad del nervio simpático, facilitar la utilización de la glucosa y mejorar la sensibilidad a la insulina”

El té verde, una vez más, se demuestra que es eficaz para reducir los niveles de grasa. El consumo de té verde podría ser una estrategia eficaz para reducir los niveles de grasa y mejorar los trastornos relacionados con la obesidad y los problemas cardiovasculares “.

El té verde es utilizado como base para las bebidas funcionales de InnOrbit: CALM Y RELAX, SLIM FIT, YOUNG&FUN and UP&GO.
