Weight Loss with the help of Green Tea

Over the past few years, green tea and its connection with weight loss has long been the center of various clinical studies. Positive effects of green tea on weight loss have been discovered in recent years.


Studies show that the relation between green tea and weight loss are substantially linked together through the plant’s thermogenic properties. 


Thermogenesis is the process by which the body produces heat by speeding up metabolism, burning calories, and breaking down fat. Certain substances in green tea are believed to help in the body’s thermogenesis, thus contributing to weight loss.


Weight Loss in Other Herbs

Other than green tea, there are other natural herbs that contribute to weight loss. Gugu lipid for instance has been shown to augment the metabolic rate of the body and help with thermogenesis, thus leading to weight loss. Gugu lipid has also been reported as a catalyst for lowering down cholesterol levels.

Another herb that aids in weight loss is Maitake. Derived from a Japanese plant, Maitake helps promote weight loss by targeting the liver, which is a major digestive part of the body.


Maximizing Weight Loss Benefits in Green Tea

A standardized weight loss herbal extract of pure green tea is needed in order to maximize the weight loss benefits of green tea. The market offers several green tea weight loss products that do not use standardized extract. 

These non-standardized green tea weight loss products are cheaper but do not contain enough active green tea substances to have any significant weight loss benefits.

Scientists and traditional herbalists believe that better weight loss results are achieved when green tea is used in conjunction with other weight loss herbs and with other nutrients. 


So before buying a green tea weight loss product, it is advisable that you choose a product that contains a rich blend of green tea herbs, minerals and nutrient that aid in weight loss.


Green tea when combined with ginger and olive leaf helps lower cholesterol and promotes weight loss. Green tea helps stop blood vessel constriction while CoQ 10 protects the heart and ensures blood pressure levels. By mixing green tea with CoQ 10, you will not only achieve maximum weight loss but you will also be able maintain the health of several body systems at one time.


The Ideal Green Tea Weight Loss Product

The first thing to make sure of when buying green tea products is to see if the manufacturer of the green tea extract follows strict Good Manufacturing Practices [GMP] compliance, the manufacturing standard used throughout the world. 

Having GMP approval in green tea products assures you that you are getting a product of the highest quality.


Under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, herbal products such as green tea are considered dietary supplements. This means that the success or effectiveness of these products do not have any guarantees. 


Companies or manufacturers that claim 100% success in their green tea products are doing false advertising and should not be patronized.


For assurance that you’re getting your money’s worth when you buy a green tea product, either find a product that is using standardized green tea extract or reach out to a health coach.


When it comes to supplementing my general recommendation for my clients is to start with nutrition, sleep, movement, and mindfulness BEFORE supplements.


However, I support my clients in navigating the supplemental landscape in many ways, by:

📍empowering you to be informed so you can act in your own best interests

📍helping you make sense of the confusing information out here

📍increasing awareness of possible contraindications [e.g. interactions with medications]

📍providing basic education and guidance based on the latest research

📍remembering the importance of rule #1 BIO-INDIVIDUALITY #iinweinventedhealthcoaching

📍suggesting you consult with your functional medicine or naturopathic doctor to explore options


Bottom line, supplements do not exist to replace a healthy diet; they exist to complement it.
