2. Green tea is one of the best breakfast beverages for weight loss
Research has shown that 5 cups of green tea a day can increase your metabolism and help you lose weight. Studies have proven that the caffeine in green tea as well as the antioxidant EGCG helps to promote thermogenesis, the process of heat production in the body. When thermogenesis is increased, energy expenditure and fat metabolism increases. EGCG not only enhances the ability to use fat but also reduces the ability to absorb fat.
All tea is antioxidant rich, but green tea is one of the healthiest teas of them all. Regular consumption of green tea can also help to protect the brain from Alzheimer’s and other kinds of dementia.
