Green Tea and Weight Loss

Tea has been cultivated and consumed by numerous cultures throughout the world for centuries. In fact, tea consumption is second only to water across the globe. Cultures in which tea is the primary beverage and is consumed throughout the lifespan exhibit lower levels of cholesterol, obesity, diabetes and degenerative bone loss, and enjoy an overall higher level of health. Although practitioners of traditional medicine in Indian and Chinese cultures have long used tea to treat illness and disease, Western researchers are now turning their attention to the preventative and restorative powers of tea.

While all tea comes from the same base plant, Camellia sinensis, three main varieties are created through the manner in which the tea leaves are processed. Green tea is made from tea leaves that are left unfermented. The active ingredients within green tea are catechins; a sub-class of flavonoids. These complex organic molecules are highly powerful antioxidant compounds which are believed to be critical in reducing the risk of various diseases. In relation to weight loss, research suggests that catechins play several roles in losing weight and burning fat.

One study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition looked at 100 healthy adults over a 12-week study period. Participants were divided into groups and given a daily dose of either 625mg catechins or a control beverage with caffeine added to match the levels of the catechin beverage. They also agreed to perform 180 minutes of moderate intensity exercise each week. The results of the study found that participants who had consumed catechins lost more body weight than the control group, and also that they lost more abdominal and subcutaneous fat than those participants who did not receive catechins.

Another study focused on the measurable ability of green tea extract to inhibit the digestion of fat. This study was conducted in test tubes, and not within the human body. However, over a 12 week period, researchers observed a reduced amount of fat digested with the addition of green tea extract. The results were comparable to the effects of the prescription weight loss drug Xenical. 

These results are just a small sample of the scientific research that proves the weight loss and overall health benefits of green tea. In addition, unlike many synthetic or chemical weight loss methods, tea therapies are all-natural and completely safe! There are no worries that your body won’t react favorably to tea, or that you may experience a frightening list of adverse side effects. There are no studies that warn of any negative effects of tea.

Advanced Tea Tone Plus is not a weight loss fad. It is not a synthetic, untested material cooked up in a lab and sold as a weight loss “miracle.” The proprietary formula that makes up our supplements simply takes advantage of the known benefits of a combined tea therapy regimen and adds the powerhouse of raspberry ketone. By combining all four ingredients in one supplement, your body is able to take advantage of the synergistic properties of the blend, each helping the other to be more effective in reducing weight, burning fat, and increasing alertness and vitality.
