Camellia sinensis a.k.a Green Tea

I have been wanting to reduce a few more kg since I-don't-know-and-not-so-sure-when but somehow I managed to lose 7 kg so far. However, a few more kg perhaps? Bahahaha~ Then, I found out that green tea may help in getting the job well done.

Green tea has been consumed throughout the ages in India, China, Japan, and Thailand. In traditional Chinese and Indian medicine, practitioners used green tea as a stimulant, diuretic (to promote the excretion of urine), astringent (to control bleeding and help heal wounds), and to improve heart health. Other traditional uses of green tea include treating flatulence (gas), regulating body temperature and blood sugar, promoting digestion, and improving mental processes. 

Weight loss information regarding green tea:

Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study confirmed that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in overweight and moderately obese individuals. Some researchers speculate that substances in green tea known as polyphenols, specifically the catechins, are responsible for the herb's fat-burning effect.

Let's try it together then! Wee~~
