Tea polyphenol extracts induce weight loss
Tea polyphenol extracts induced weight loss effects and anti-oxidant activity.
Research, via an animal study, by Heber et al suggests that tea extracts found in Green tea may help with weight loss. A tea rich diet led to significantly lower body weight, total visceral fat volume and liver lipid weight.
It seems that, as well as reducing overall food intake, the extracts are able to induce certain types of gene expression via biochemical changes in the body. This could be great news if you are trying to control your weight in a natural way.
