Drinking Green Tea and Dieting

By: Shaun Cartwright

Nature seems to have a cure for everything if you can find it with the health benefits of green tea, only just being understood; although primarily known for the benefits it provides as an antioxidant, it has many other positive health properties. Available as liquid extract, regular tea or tablets, green tea diet products are considered to be some of the most effective ways to burn extra calories. Although known more for its weight loss properties, extended use has other beneficial affects by slowing the oxidation process of our cells to reduce the signs of aging.

When used in weight loss products, it shows some amazing qualities like helping the metabolism by ridding the system of toxins and using the natural laxative quality it possesses. To help stop fatty tissue from forming, products using it increase the number of calories we burn by speeding our normal metabolic rate. No matter how good green tea diet products are, some steps must be taken by the user to be careful with their diet so if you are a junk food addict, this will not work. It is important to remember that weight loss also requires a person to completely change their eating habits otherwise just consuming the product will be a waste of time.

For the best results when using green tea as a hot drink; you are advised to use it prior sleep when the metabolism is slowing down. Although it may at first seem a little scary, it has a strange effect on the body and as a consequence the stomach and bowls may not work as they should while you become accustomed to it during the first few days. Newer users of green tea diet products are more likely to see this effect as their body becomes used to the way it increases the metabolic rate ridding it of the toxins and burning calories that normally turn into fat. If you maintain other parts of your diet; exercise, plenty of liquids and vegetables, results of using it can be seen within a week.

One very successful combination of green tea products is that which includes ginseng root extract. The ginseng extracts add essential vitamins and supplements to the products and have been used in china for millennia. When ginseng is used in association with green tea it stimulates the immune system and fortifies the user, representing a valuable energy source, during the stressful period when you are returning to normal weight. Natural products like green tea and ginseng are safe to use even on programs lasting up to 26 weeks at a time.

There are many benefits to drinking green tea, so whether using it for diet or general health reasons, it is a good addition to any diet.
