Hello, Yes It definitely does. Green tea contains bioactive substances like caffeine and EGCG, which can have powerful effects on metabolism. The substances in green tea increase levels of hormones that tell fat cells to break down fat. This releases fat into the bloodstream and makes it available as energy. Green tea extract can boost the burning of fat. The effect is even stronger when exercising. Green tea can boost metabolism and help people burn about 3-4% more calories each day. To get the amount of caffeine and catechins purported to help you lose weight, you would need to drink 2 to 4 cups of green tea a day,

Hi there,

Good to hear from you :)

Yess green tea is definitely good for weight loss and your overall health.It is loaded with antioxidants which shall clear up your skin and detoxify your body.But if your weight is on a higher side,just consumption of green tea would not help and you need a tailor made,personalised diet plan in order to bring down your weight.You can continue to have 3-4 cups of green tea in a day , but also make sure you eat a well balanced diet and stay away from refined,high calorie and fattening foods.Eat small and frequent meals, and make friends with 2 servings of fruits and 3 servings of veggies in a day.Limit the consumption of salt,sugar and oil in the diet.

Please feel free to get in touch with me if you may have any more doubts or for further assistance :)

Yes. Apart from hydration as water is going in your body, green tea is rich in Anti oxidants and has certain properties that help in increasing the metabolism. Hence helping in weight loss. Antioxidants helps in detox of the body. But do not go overboard, more than 4 cups a day is not good.
