How Does the Green Tea Work?
Green tea helps to promote weight loss in several ways:
#Boosts the metabolism. Research done at the University of Geneva, Switzerland, shows that green tea speeds up the average person’s metabolism thus increasing the number of calories they burn. This is believed to be due to the catechins, potent antioxidants, found in the tea leaves.
#Green tea Helps to burn fat stores within the body. To be converted to energy, fat within the body needs to be broken down in the cells, and then moved through the bloodstream.
Those who are thinking about using Green Tea to achieve their weight loss goals will need to keep a few things in mind. These include:
• To maximize the effects of the green tea on weight loss, one needs to consume 3-5 full glasses per day.
• Preferably, tea should be brewed with the leaves instead of a tea bag. This will allow making more of the essence to be extracted so that it retains its nutrients and use tea with no artificial preservatives.
• Water should be poured directly over the tea, right before it boils and the tea brewed for 3-4 minutes.
Now let’s talk about how green tea can do wonders for your skin:
Green tea can be really beneficial when it comes to promoting a beautiful skin. It has the ability to stop tyrosinase, which in effect reduces melanin production because of its impressive amounts of vitamin C, which also prevents the accumulation of melanin in certain areas.
To use green tea on the face, you can simply apply wet and cooled tea bags to the problem areas and leave it on for 15 minutes. This is particularly useful for dark under eye pigmentation.
Or you could also make a green tea mask by mixing the tea leaves with raw honey and lime and apply this mask for 10/15 mins twice a week.This will work wonders for skin elasticity.
You can even refrigerate green tea bags and then keep them on your eyelid for 10/15 mins for puffy eyes and dark circles.
