The tea culture continues in the diet industry under the marketing claim of slimming tea. However, you don’t need expensive tea leaves to attain the benefits. Tea probably works best for any weight loss plan when you pair it with adequate exercise and a healthy diet.
Below are six of the best teas for increasing weight loss and decreasing body fat.
1. Green Tea
Green tea is high in a type of antioxidants called catechins, and has been associated with weight loss and fat loss.
2. Puerh Tea
Human and animal studies show that puerh tea extract may help enhance weight loss while also lowering both blood sugar and blood triglyceride levels.
3. Black Tea
Black tea is high in flavones and has been associated with reductions in weight, BMI and waist circumference.
4. Oolong Tea
Studies show that oolong tea may help reduce weight and body fat by increasing metabolism and improving fat burning.
5. White Tea
One test-tube study found that white tea extract may increase fat loss. However, not much research in humans currently exists, and more is needed.
6. Herbal Tea
Though research is limited, some studies have found that herbal teas, including rooibos tea, may help reduce weight and increase fat loss.
The Bottom Line
Though many people drink tea solely for its soothing quality and delicious taste, each cup may also pack many health benefits.
Replacing high-calorie beverages like juice or soda with tea could help reduce overall calorie intake and lead to weight loss.
Some animal and test-tube studies have also shown that certain types of tea may help increase weight loss while blocking fat cell formation. However, studies in humans are needed to investigate this further.
Additionally, many types of tea are especially high in beneficial compounds like flavones and catechins, which could aid in weight loss as well.
Coupled with a healthy diet and regular exercise, a cup or two of tea each day could help you boost weight loss and prevent harmful belly fat.
