There have been plenty of studies concerning the major health benefits of the superdrink we all know as tea. And now, a new meta-analysis of studies has found even more reasons on why you should start sipping tea more often.
The recent study supported by the Tea Council of the USA found that tea variants like green, oolong, and white teas all have catechins. When combined with the caffeine content found in tea, this can help to increase energy expenditure and fat oxidation.
This isn't the first time that tea has been found to be beneficial for losing weight. The paper also cited a meta-analysis from 2009 that showed people who consumed green tea and caffeine while on their normal diet lost more weight over 12 weeks; and a meta-analysis from 2011 showed that catechin-rich teas could up your caloric expenditure by about 100 calories over 24 hours.
In other words, it might be a good idea to switch up your usual coffee break with some tea once in awhile.
