THANKSGIVING IS HERE!!!...Burn Fat Faster with Green Tea

Sipping green tea before a workout may help incinerate your spare tire faster

November 2, 2008

There's an affordable way to get more fat-burning power from your workouts, and it doesn't involve hiring a personal trainer or drinking a weird-tasting liquid from a fancy sports bottle. Sipping green tea before a workout may help you incinerate your spare tire faster.

In one small study, extracts from green tea helped men burn 17 percent more fat during a 30-minute, moderate-intensity cardio workout. It's not clear how green tea boosts metabolism, but it's possible that something in the healthy brew makes fat more available as fuel, so you oxidize more of it when you exercise. And, unlike sports drinks, green tea doesn't contain calories, so you don't even have to do extra time to burn off the beverage. Plus, while it's turning your workout into a fat-blitzing bonanza, green tea is also helping to steady your blood pressure, protect your memory and cut your cancer risk. That's a lot of power in a little tea bag.
Just keep two things in mind if you usually do your workouts after the sun goes down: Green tea contains some caffeine (about 30 milligrams per 8 ounces), so it can definitely keep you up if taken too late in the evening.

Dr. Iverson's Comment
As the holiday’s approach it is always nice to have tips on keeping the extra pounds from accumulating. 
The Orient has been using green tea for millennia and the effects are being more understood as science dives into their properties. Green tea taken with fatty foods as well has been shown to inhibit absorption of cholesterol and other lipids- possibly accounting for some of its fat burning properties. It is a nice alternative to coffee, which has substances called xanthines that can be quite inflammatory to the body, particularly the breast tissue and female organs disposing to fibrocystic changes.
We commonly use green tea concentrate in supplemental concentrate form for a variety of health benefits. Its high levels of bioflavonoids powerfully protect against age related processes. Green tea has proven both clinical and laboratory benefit in cases like maintaining youthful skin by protecting it from sun’s UV light, protecting the brain cells from aging too rapidly resulting in early dementia, as well as balancing immunity in cases of chronic disease like cancer and autoimmunity.   The list is quite long for its multiple benefits. 
Green tea is one of hundreds of Natures’ herbal medicines that are now being recognized for their ability to heal on multiple levels.   I predict these bioflavonoids as we find in green tea, licorice, mint, turmeric, red wine, pine trees, ginkgo, milk thistle, berries, etc etc etc will be the super medicines of the future.
Be Well!
