A recent study shows that an extract from white tea can reduce the number of new fat cells produced and break down the fat in existing ones. That’s some great news in the battle against obesity.
Obesity has become a widespread problem in the United States and the future doesn’t look promising. The recent economy struggles may increase obesity numbers as people try to save money by eating cheap and unhealthy food. This behavior pattern could lead to a significant increase on related disorders such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes.
The result of the research showed that white tea extract can inhibit the generation of new adipocyte and stimulate fat mobilization from mature fat cells.
White tea may be a natural source of slimming substance and can be the perfect replacement for high-sugar beverages. It often contains buds and young tea leaf. Like most teas, white tea comes from the camellia sinesis plant but contains lower levels of caffeine than green teas. A specialty in China, white tea is generally less processed than other teas and contains more of the ingredients thought to be active on human cells.
These ingredients are methylxanthines (similar to caffeine) and epigallocatechin 3-gallate, which the authors believe to be responsible for many of the anti-adipogenic effect demonstrated in their study.
The most common types of white tea are silver needle, white peony and tribute eyebrow. Ceylon, Oolong and Darjeeling have white versions too and are generally light easy-to-drink teas.
White tea can be an additional help to fight obesity. You may try to switch from your sugary latte to a cup of white tea to reduce body fat and, as a result, to stay healthy!
