  • 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.

There are two schools of thought here: one is represented well in the article written above; the other is this: "Scientists Say, 'Don’t Be Duped By Alkaline Water:' Late-Breaking Scoop On The Truth Behind The Alkaline Water Marketing." HypePurative – Adding Wellness to Water

(I'm not-so-secretively hoping that ionized water does the trick!)

I was excited and then I saw it was green tea bags, water, lemon juice and stevia. Sorry but I'm underwhelmed.
