2. Healthy Weight Loss
The effects of green tea on obesity and diabetes are receiving increased attention. EGCG (the main catechin in green tea) has been documented to have anti-obesity and anti-diabetic effects.
Recent data from studies indicate that the consumption of green tea extracts may help to reduce body fat. For example, in a recent study, overweight men were given 300 mg EGCG per day.
This study and others as well suggest that green tea extract and EGCG alone has the potential to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate.
