Green tea is probably the healthiest choice given its myriad of benefits, according to Dr. Don Colbert. Moreover, green tea has been shown to support healthy weight control by reducing the amount of fat absorbed by the body and increasing fat oxidation, or breakdown.
According to a recent study, at Penn State University, green tea reduces the body's ability to absorb fat as well as increases the body’s ability to burn fat and many other health benefits.
Moreover, green tea happens to be one of my favorite teas and I have experienced first hand, the effects of drinking green tea, including: weight loss and a increase in energy.
Just in case you are wondering if it is best to drink green tea hot or cold, I think either way; green tea has positive effects on your health.
Be careful not to buy green teas that contain corn fructose syrup. The best kind of tea to buy is green tea bags or leaves. If you do not have time to brew your tea, Trader Joes sells an UN-sweetened blue berry flavored green tea in a glass bottle.
For a more enjoyable cup of tea, add 2 lemon slices to your tea along with 1-2 teaspoons of liquid agave or raw sugar. It is best to drink green tea in the morning or mid-day. I tried drinking green tea in the evening and I was energized.
I hope that you have been inspired to drink more green tea. For more health benefits of drinking green tea, read Dr. Colbert's Divine Health article, click here.
