On a Diet? These 5 Types of Tea Can Help Your Diet Program

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Tea has long been known to have a myriad of good health benefits. In fact, several types of tea are nutritious for weight loss for those of you who are undergoing a diet program.

Tea can also help relieve throat discomfort and provide a calming effect.

Reporting from Wolipop, these five types of tea help the diet program and reduce waist circumference:

1. Green Tea

Green tea contains antioxidants called catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The latter is believed to increase metabolism and help burn fat.

Citing Prevention, the researchers found that green tea extract caused changes in the expression of fat metabolism genes, especially when consumed consistently over a long period of time.
