Tea Clears Your GI Tract

Tea helps to clear your GI tract for superb digestion and reduces fat storage, which is why its helps to treat and prevent obesity (Sirotkin, AV, and A Kolesarova). Further research has been conducted and it was discovered the cleaning of the GI tract, along with enzyme inhibition of fat storage, are keys to lowering the bodies fat percentage, teas help to ignite both (Rothenberg, Dylan O’Neill, et al). 

Hot Tea Lowers The Waistline

Hot tea provided lower waist sizes as well as a lower BMI when compared with non hot tea drinkers in one study, and the same study found iced tea to do the exact opposite (Vernarelli, Jacqueline A., and Joshua D. Lambert). 

Japanese Matcha Tea Helps To Boost Your Metabolism

Matcha tea is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols, rutin, and vitamin c. Vitamin c helps to boost your metabolism naturally. Boosting your metabolism in this way helps to burn more calories while at rest, leading to more weight loss. 

Green Tea Boosts Your Metabolism and Helps Burn Fat Cells

According to a Consumer Reports article, "It's true that green tea can raise your metabolic rate, so you burn more calories, says David Nieman, DrPH, director of the human performance laboratory at Appalachian State University in Boone, N.C. Nieman, who has studied green tea extensively, says this effect is probably due to a combination of its caffeine and catechins—antioxidants that are plentiful in green tea" (Consumer Reports). 

Clinical studies have shown green tea to help people lose weight and fight obesity, especially when consumed regularly (Xu, Xiao-Yu, et al). After just 6 weeks green tea extract lowered LDL cholesterol significantly along with significant increases in leptin as well (Huang, Lin-Huang, et al). 

Green tea contains EGCG, the largest of all antioxidants it contains, which helps the body produce more of the fat burning hormone norepinephrine (Barrett, Holland &). EGCG boosts your metabolism as well. 

The caffeine inside green tea is scientifically proven to help people lose weight fast. 

Oolong Tea Fought Obesity and Won

After a 5 year study of the compound polyphenol, Chinese scientists discovered oolong tea can help people lose weight and slim the waistline, especially in children (Reuters Staff). Childhood obesity is an epidemic worldwide with junk food, sugary drinks, and fast food among the biggest reasons why kids are obese, having an impact on a child's physical and mental health. Drinking tea for obesity and replacing those sugary sodas and energy drinks will help win the childhood obesity battle. 


Science has proven tea to help with healthy weight loss and boost metabolism. Tea produces more fat burning within your body. They are rich in antioxidants and compounds that defeat obesity. Caffeine, EGCG, catechins, vitamin c, rutin, and polyphenols provide a powerful combination of natural ingredients to destroy fat and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
