Energy Drink Slashes Belly Fat by 77%

  • 2 of 3

Not only does green tea give you an energy boost, research shows that it protects your body against colorectal, lung, and prostate cancers, slows wrinkling and skin damage linked to aging.  But, there’s another great reason to drink green tea.   Green tea contains a potent plant nutrient known as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, for short.  Multiple studies that EGCG seriously targets belly fat.

Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent.  New research published in the Journal of Nutrition found that overweight adults who drank four to six cups of green tea daily lost at least seven percent more abdominal fat than those who didn’t drink green tea.

I wish Care2 would stop using this site to give Ms. Cook free advertising. Out of the 40 or so "articles" of hers I've read, only one or two was anything more than an ad.

Wow. First rinsing with green tea stopping plaque bacteria, and now belly fat? The good news keep on coming. :D

Green tea packs a wallop of caffeine, and is no more healthy just because it has green in the name! Won't help intelligence either, ha ha.

Not so bad for Michelle Schoffro Cook. Just a little plug for her "upcoming weight loss book." I drink green tea every day, and I like it straight.
