Green Tea and Weight Loss
Green tea is made from the dried leaves of Camellia sinensis,
a perennial evergreen shrub. Green tea has a long history of use,
dating back to China approximately 5,000 years ago. Green tea, black
tea, and oolong tea are all derived from the same plant.
confirms that green tea is very effective for fat loss. Green tea
contains compounds called catechins, including epigallocatchin
gallate (EGCG), the main catechin responsible for the thermogenic
(fat burning) effect of green tea. Although green tea also contains
caffeine, green tea's major thermogenic effect comes from the ability
of EGCG to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down norepinephrine. This
neurohormone is involved in regulating metabolic rate and fat burning.
Caffeine aids fat loss by binding to fat cells to enhance the
removal of fat and inhibit its storage. That means caffeine
helps to kick more fat out of the fat cells and into circulation,
where it can travel to different tissues (such as muscle cells)
to be burned for fuel.
Since caffeine frees up extra fat, taking green tea extract ensures
that this fat will be burned by boosting your metabolic rate.
Research shows that the catechins from green tea extract are better
absorbed by the body than from the tea.
a study reported on in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,
it was found that green tea extract resulted in a significant increase
in energy expenditure (a measure of metabolism), plus also had a
significant effect on fat oxidation. While some of the effects were
originally theorized to be due to the caffeine content of green
tea, the researchers discovered that the tea actually has properties
that go beyond those that would be explained by the caffeine.
The same amount of caffeine as was in the green tea, administered
alone, failed to change energy expenditure in other studies. This
led researchers to believe that there is some interaction going
on with the active ingredients of green tea that promotes increased
metabolism and fat oxidation.
The researchers indicated that their findings have substantial
implications for weight control. A 4% overall increase in
24-hour energy expenditure was attributed to the green tea extract,
however, the research found that the extra expenditure took place
during the daytime. This led them to conclude that, since thermogenesis
(the body's own rate of burning calories) contributes 8-10% of daily
energy expenditure in a typical subject, that this 4% overall
increase in energy expenditure due to the green tea actually
translated to a 35-43% increase in daytime thermogenesis.
Of critical importance to thyroid patients is the fact that none
of the research subjects reported any side effects, and no significant
differences in heart rates were noticed. In this respect, green
tea extract is different from some of the prescription drugs
for obesity, and herbal products like ephedra, which can raise heart
rates and blood pressure, and are not recommended for many individuals,
in particular, those with thyroid disease who may be particularly
sensitive to stimulants.
