On the market are many teas claiming to reduce weight. The underlying problem with some of these is that they contain herbal laxatives such as castor oil, rhubarb root and buckthorn. If used in large quantities this can cause harm to the gastrointestinal tract and weaken bones. The best alternative, one in which has been used for centuries is green tea.
This tea increases the metabolism rate to help consistently and moderately burn fat hence keeping the weight off. Additionally, it is full of anti-oxidants, even more so than Vitamin E. Another bonus from drinking green tea is that it curbs cravings of some greasy foods and sugary treats. Add some cinnamon to your green tea for sweetness or if just merely bored brew a cup of green tea instead of reaching for those chips.
