There is so much news these days about all of the benefits of drinking tea, so how can you know which is the best choice for you?
Black tea, oolong tea, and green tea all come from the camellia sinesis plant, and they all are all high in antioxidants, which are known to benefit health:
The difference in varieties of tea is determined by the way that they are processed after being picked. Each is fermented differently and this affects the flavor and properties of the tea.
Tea - oolong tea in particular - is packed with powerful little antioxidants known as polyphenols.
So, what can these polyphenols do for you?
A number of studies have illustrated that these antioxidants in tea work in the body to boost metabolism.
This means that simply drinking tea on a regular basis can help your body to naturally burn more calories.
As a matter of fact, a study published in the Chinese Journal of Integrative Medicine in 2009 reflected these results when inducing a diet of oolong tea on overweight and obese subjects. They found that Oolong tea could decrease body fat content and reduce body weight through improving metabolism and that it might help to prevent obesity. In fact, they found that a total of 70% of the severely obese subjects showed a decrease of more than 1 kg in body weight, including 22% who lost more than 3 kg.
The question remains, which is better when you are comparing green tea vs. oolong tea for weight loss?
Both have been shown to raise metabolism, but more and more research points to oolong tea as the most powerful fat burner…
In a direct comparison of the metabolic effects of green tea vs. oolong tea, a 2003 research study by the Department of Applied Nutrition at The University of Tokushima School of Medicine, oolong tea produced a more significant effect on energy expenditure (EE) than green tea.
Another study published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2001 concluded that drinking regular amounts of oolong tea not only increases metabolic rate, but also increased fat oxidation in its subjects. This study showed a 12% increase in fat oxidation over a 24-hour period after drinking the tea, and an overall significant increase in energy expenditure (EE).
Oolong tea is the ideal choice when trying to lose weight and get healthy.
It is safe, powerful, and all natural…
The perfect way for you to fuel your fat burning engine.
