Discussion on the Weight Loss Mechanism of Tea
The claim that drinking tea can help you lose weight was first discovered by accident in scientific research. During the experiment, the scientists found that the mice that drank the tea also lost weight after the experiment. In follow-up studies, scientists have found that regular tea consumption can help inhibit weight gain, thereby achieving the goal of weight loss.
According to a large number of studies, the root cause of obesity is that the body has long been in a state where fat synthesis is greater than fat breakdown. The active ingredients in tea can inhibit the rate of fat synthesis and promote lipolysis, thereby achieving the goal of weight loss. These effective ingredients mainly include catechins, caffeine and other substances.
Drinking tea regularly can have a certain slimming effect
Several types of tea with strong weight loss effect
Based on the above information, we can understand the specific weight loss effects of different teas by comparing the characteristics of the teas and the differences in their contents.
The first is the green tea we often come into contact with. Green tea is one of the main teas in my country. The finished product has lively properties and the production process is relatively simple. It belongs to non-fermented tea. After picking the fresh leaves of tea trees, they are made by finishing, rolling, and drying. Green tea is rich in ester catechins. Among them, EGCG catechin is an important component of green tea to regulate body weight. It has sufficient activity and can effectively inhibit the body’s absorption of sugar and triglycerides, thereby achieving the effect of weight control.
The second is Oolong tea with a more complicated process. In southern Fujian and the Chaoshan area, after eating greasy food, people usually drink a few cups of oolong tea to eliminate the greasy food. Oolong tea, which is mainly picked from mature leaves, has a rich expression of aroma and taste. Oolong tea contains more tea polyphenols and tannins, which promote the decomposition of body fat by regulating the activity of metabolic enzymes, while effectively inhibiting the decomposition of fat in food, thereby achieving the effect of eliminating fat and removing greasy.
Then there is Pu’er tea with a stronger flavor. Compared with green tea and oolong tea, Pu’er tea is more vigorous. Pu’er tea is made from Yunnan large-leaf species and contains rich substances. Tea polyphenols account for about 30% of the total substance content of dry tea, and the taste is relatively strong. According to relevant research findings, the effective ingredients in Pu’er tea can improve the activity of free fatty acids and promote the secretion of leptin to eliminate fat.
Through these comparisons, it is not difficult to find that whether it is green tea, oolong tea or Pu’er tea, weight can be effectively controlled. Consistently drinking tea, combined with diet and exercise, I believe you can get a more satisfactory weight loss effect. As for which teas are suitable for different groups of people, you need to choose according to your physique and preferences to get twice the result with half the effort.
