This may be the best herb there is for directly influencing fat metabolism. Research is solid. Inexpensive supplements are widely available. It seems like a no-brainer. Not too long ago I delved into the scientific research on green tea and found studies that back up claims about green tea and fat loss. Hey, it is a simple thing to add to your fat burning arsenal.
Here is a recent update with some great research-based commentary on green tea for fat loss, with other significant side benefits.
Just click on the link here:
Maki KC, Reeves MS, Farmer M, Yasunaga K, Matsuo N, Katsuragi Y, Komikado M, Tokimitsu I, Wilder D, Jones F, Blumberg JB, Cartwright Y. Green tea catechin consumption enhances exercise-induced abdominal fat loss in overweight and obese people.
By the way, if you are like me and prefer to take green tea supplements, then that will work fine. If would rather drink green tea, here is a little advice that I have come up with to make green tea taste better.
Just squeeze some lemon juice into it when it is steeping. This will bring out more of the active ingredients, too. (They are more soluble in hot water in a slightly acidic environment.) Also add some liquid Stevia for sweetening. I really like the Vanilla Creme flavor, although liquid Stevia comes in many other flavors, too.
