Hot Peppermint Green Tea
If you are anything like me, you get bored with your drinks after some time. Well, maybe it is time to vary your tried and true green tea! It is amazing in itself, but read up and see why you should keep the green tea, but maybe alter the flavors!
Studies have shown that regular consumption of green tea helps burn fat and promote weight loss. The secret to green tea’s fat-burning power is its catechins – the antioxidants in the green tea that combats free radicals as well as promote healthy cells. Also, the caffeine you find in green tea contains egcg which inhibits your body’s sugar intake and helps prevent fat storage.
One cup of green tea contains between 50 to 100 milligrams of catechins. Studies show that 400 mg a day improves your metabolic function which aids in burning fat. So, you need to drink about 4-5 cups of green tea every day to see any fat-burning effects.
Winter is a great time to drink hot tea plus you can add some peppermint stevia and enjoy a candy cane flavored, fat-burning, metabolism-boosting drink that warms you from the inside out!
So – Tis the Season – drink Green Tea and enjoy the benefits of its antioxidants and their cancer-fighting effects.
