Green Tea has a long history, but I am sure everyone is aware of it, and is already bored to death reading about it. Thats why I will skip the past and go to present days. I will keep only the Chinese peoples green tea experience for later on in my article.

What makes green tea diet so special?
Its all about the great antioxidant effect of the green tea extract. Green tea extract is one of the best natural antioxidants with extremely powerful and potent antioxidant components. Green tea takes 5th place in the list of the best antioxidants.
The antioxidant effect of green tea extract is due to the green tea flavonoid polyphenols (also called bioflavonoids) that protect your body sells from the damaging free radicals. Those free radicals are result from metabolism and have bad oxidative effect that can seriously damage your body cells.
The super antioxidant – Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG)
The polyphenols EGCG antioxidant is the most powerful compound of green tea extract. It is 100 times more potent antioxidant than Vitamin C and E.
Clinical tests have shown that EGCG inhibits the growth of new cancer cells and kills some existing ones without damaging the normal cells. EGCG also may prevent thrombosis, which is one of the causes of heart attacks and stroke.
Green Tea weight loss
To get rid of fat you either need to lower you food intake (follow a diet plan), or increase your energy expenditure (do exercising).
The green tea weight loss effect is due to the EGCG antioxidant that increases energy expenditure and accelerates fat burning. That makes Green Tea Diet a very smart choice for all people who hate strict dieting, or are tired of starving, or everyday exercising.
Green tea weight loss diet is a great way for everyone to lose weight easily and naturally, without any negative side effects.
