Green Tea is considered to be a good tool for the weight loss. There are some school of thoughts which that green tea should not be used frequently for weight loss, there should be limitations or a specific routine of using green tea like that one should use one or two cups a day of green tea, not more than this.
Other school of thoughts says that if you want to get rid of weight as early as possible then there is a schedule for using green tea like usage of green tea before and after breakfast, before and after lunch etc.
There are some side effects of this approach one of them is that fat of the body starts melting make its way through urine to get out of the body which is dangerous and quit risky.
Ingredients of Green Tea
In green tea there are bioactive substances in the tea leaves dissolve in the water and make it into the final drink. When you take a cup of quality tea, you’re actually getting a large amount of beneficial substances with potent biological effects.
Out of many substances, the best known is caffeine. A cup of green tea includes much less caffeine (24-40 mg) than a cup of coffee (100-200 mg), but still enough to have a slight effect.
Caffeine is a well-known stimulant that has been shown to help fat burning and improve exercise performance in numerous studies.
But when green tea really shines is in its huge range of antioxidants being loaded with potent antioxidants called catechins. The most important of these is EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a substance that can boost metabolism. Keep that in your mind that these benefits can be derived both from drinking green tea as a beverage, as well as taking green tea extract as a supplement. Most of the studies used extracts.
Mobilization of Fat from Fat Cells
Weight loss means burning of fat in the body. Fat burning start by breaking the fat cells and moving them into blood cycle. There is an active compound in the green tea which helps this process by boosting the effects of some fat burning hormones. In green tea there is an antioxidant and EGCG which help to inhibit an enzyme that breaks down the hormone norepinephrine. When the enzyme is inhibited the amount of norepinephrine increases.
That hormone is used by the nervous system as a signal to the fat cells, telling them to break down fat. Therefore, more norepinephrine leads to a stronger signal being sent to the fat cell and more fat gets broken down.
Caffeine and EGCG (both found naturally in green tea) may actually have a synergistic effect, because caffeine enhances another step in the same pathway.
The end result is that the fat cell breaks down more fat, which is released into the bloodstream and becomes available for use as energy by cells that need it, like muscle cells.
Use of Green Tea During Exercise
Use of Green tea can be more effective for fat burning when you are doing regular exercise. One of the studies say that green tea burns 17% more fats with exercise then without exercise.
One studies says that use of green tea is help ful in blood circulation. It makes the blood of the thinner according to the need of body.
