Apart from tasting good, tea also helps you in losing weight in a healthy manner

For those who love tea can have the beverage at any time of the day, and any number of cups. Packed with antioxidants, tea – the second most consumed beverage in the world, has immense health benefits, and comes in many flavours as well. And the good news is that apart from protecting your immune system, it also helps in weight loss.
The delicious, flavourful and aromatic teas, that are easily available and help you in shedding weight, include:

Green tea

Green tea is hugely popular, and has a mild, bittersweet taste, which most studies back up with its potential weight loss benefits. According to research, those who drank two cups of green tea daily for at least 10 years had a lower percentage of body fat and a smaller waist than nonregular green tea drinkers.
Experts say green tea can burn more calories effectively due to EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate – an antioxidant, along with caffeine. Both EGCG and caffeine target fat cells and increase fat oxidation.

Black tea

Black tea is one of the boldest varieties available in the market and has various benefits, including a sure shot weight loss. The tea leaves, when oxidized for a longer time are fermented, and so, they change the makeup of polyphenols, or plant compounds, in black tea.
Black tea also contains EGCG, along with theaflavins, a well–known antioxidant offering weight loss benefits. Polyphenols in black tea also help alter gut bacteria in a way that combats obesity in the long run.

Oolong tea

Oolong tea is partially oxidized and has a bolder flavour than green tea yet is milder than black tea. According to experts, oolong has a mixture of polyphenols, including catechins and theaflavins that actively promote weight loss.
Studies say men without obesity who drank oolong tea at breakfast and lunch saw at least 20 per cent boost in post-meal fat burn after two weeks. And those who drank an experimental caffeine beverage saw similar results. Still, they didn’t burn as much fat during sleep as the oolong group, suggesting that the tea’s caffeine content isn’t solely responsible for its effects.

Hibiscus tea

Hibiscus tea is harvested from the leaves of hibiscus flowers and are loaded with antioxidants like EGCG, which apart from boosting weight loss and metabolism, also lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
According to studies in adults who are overweight or obese and drink the tarty-flavoured hibiscus extract for 12 weeks reduce body weight, body mass index, body fat, and hip-to-waist ratio, compared with a control group. The researchers attribute those perks to the plant compounds in the hibiscus extract.

White tea

Experts say white tea is the least processed among all the other teas, which accounts for its light, delicate and well-balanced flavour. And so, it has the highest number of anti-inflammatory antioxidants and fat-burning EGCG - making it another potentially beneficial brew for trimming weight.

How does tea help you shed kilos?

Studies say tea plays a direct role in weight loss as it is packed with catechins - which increase metabolism by stimulating the body to break fat down more quickly and burn more calories. Catechins are plant compounds with powerful antioxidant properties, and the ones loaded in tea include epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).
According to experts, of these four, EGCG is the most abundant, and it is thought to contribute most to the many health benefits of tea.
