The Top 3 Secret Benefits of Green Tea
Hey Ladies! Today I want to talk about something really special! Green Tea and The Magic that it works for you! I have searched the web to find a the best known benefits of Green Tea. I have complied it down to 3 major benefits. There’s many more, but I found that they all sort of fall under these categories. So here it is! Short and Sweet.
Green Tea Improve Brain Function
Green tea does more than just an extra little kick in the morning. It can also increase your cognitive function, making you smarter. This is due to the caffeine in the green tea, which is one of the most popular stimulants out there. Green Tea doesn’t have a whole lot of caffeine, but enough to produce a response without causing the “jittery” effects associated with too much caffeine.
The caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter called Adenosine which is located in the brain. This way, it actually increases the firing of neurons and the concentration of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine.
Caffeine has been intensively studied before and always seems to lead to improvements in brain function, including things like improved mood, vigilance, reaction time and memory. So while these benefits may not be permanent, Green Tea is a much better source of stimulation than coffee or soft drinks.
Green Tea Increases Fat Burning
If you look at the ingredients list for any fat burning supplement, you are most likely going to find green tea listed there somewhere. Green tea has been shown to increase fat burning and boost the metabolic rate. In one study in green tea increased energy expenditure by 4%. Another study showed that fat oxidation as increased by 17%, Meaning green tea may actually boost the fat burning process. It’s important to point out that this doesn’t seem to work for everyone.
Some studies on green tea don’t show any increase in metabolism, so the effects may depend on the individual. Caffeine itself has also been shown to improve physical performance by mobilizing fatty acids from the fat tissues and making them available for use as energy.
Green Tea May Lower Risks of Various Types of Cancer
Cancer is caused by uncontrolled growth of cells. It is one of the world’s leading causes of death. Oxidative damage is one of the main contributors of the development of cancer and that antioxidants can have a protective effect. Green tea is an excellent source of powerful antioxidants, and it can effectively lower the risk of various types of cancer.
