Green Tea Extract Pills For Weight Loss. Does They Work To Drop The Pounds?


Green tea has always been known to have several health benefits, but it can also benefit you when it comes to losing weight.

A recent study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition1, shows that green tea extract can increase metabolism, as well as fat oxidation of the body. In theory, scientists believe that the weight loss benefits of green tea extracts, are due to their caffeine content; but the results of the study show otherwise.

This study demonstrated that, green tea extracts have weight loss benefits, that go far beyond that of caffeine.

In their study, the researchers administered the same amount of caffeine as that in green tea extract; but found that caffeine alone, did not make any significant changes in the body’s overall energy expenditure. This led them to conclude that, green tea extracts have ingredients in them that actively interact with each other; resulting in increased metabolism and fat oxidation, that then, leads to weight loss.

Further findings indicated that, a certain compound found in green tea extracts, might be the ingredient that causes weight loss. These green tea extract compounds, called flavonoids, may alter the way the body uses nor-epinephrine, a hormone that monitors how calories are burned. When flavonoids interact with other green tea extract ingredients, more calories are burned thus contributing to weight loss.

Another ingredient that actively contributes to the weight loss benefits of green tea extracts, is the compound catechin and polyphenols.

These compounds also interact with other green tea extract ingredients, in order to promote weight loss by fat burning, and thermogenesis (a process of losing energy by daytime heat).

In general, it can be said that, unlike other herbal products like ephedra, and prescription drugs for obesity, green tea extract does not increase the speed of heart rates, or raise blood pressure.

This is the case only if the product does not contain excessive amounts of caffeine.

One thing to know about using green tea extracts is that you should ensure that the product is a high quality brand; and that you follow the directions on the package. These instructions tell you to take the supplement with at least 8 ounces of water and/or to take these supplements with food.

If you don’t take more than the recommended amount suggested on the package; then it could be said that green tea extract may be an effective, and safer alternative to other weight loss products, which may cause harm to the user.
