Tea is one of the most popular beverages in many parts of the world and its consumption is a habit that increasingly spreads and survives, even in the modern living. The significance of tea to human health is increasingly popular today. According to historical data, enjoyment of drinking tea dates back long before 5000 years in China.

Tea as stimulating drinks have become a tradition among the Chinese and Japanese for thousands of years, but there is the realization that among the peoples of Europe, the habit of drinking tea is as old perhaps more than 1,500 years.

There are four types of teas that are considered as main groups of teas made up of the same types of herbs or plants.

– White teas are teas that are simply boiled herbs.

-Green teas are when plant is drained.

-Along teas are obtained when plant is dried, crushed, fermented and dried briefly.

-Black teas are obtained when plant is dried, crushed, fermented and well drained.

Teas and weight lose

In the studies that were done in experimental animals, drinking tea results in losing excess body weight, which was caused by excessive intake of fat. At the same time, the deposition of fat in the abdomen and liver decreased.

Excessive secretion of insulin, a condition known as hyperinsulinemia, disappeared. (Increased amount of insulin secreted is a condition associated with weight gain).

Research, whose results are publicized in the US “Journal of Clinical Nutrition,” confirmed that green tea helps speed up the fat burning.

In comparison, the two groups involved in the experiment showed that those participants in whom is given green tea showed a much larger amount of energy consumed for 24 hours, in contrast to the group volunteers with placebo was administered.

Treatment with caffeine in amounts as it has in green tea, did not result in a loss of energy to the extent that is noticed at giving tea.

So, tea has a specific effect in terms of weight loss and “fat melting” and therefore should be a daily habit, especially among those people who make efforts to reduce their body weight.
