As many of you know by now, green tea increases your body ability to burn fat. More precisely, it increases the oxidation of lipid metabolism. Many of the studies that confirm this are perform on subjects who did not make any changes to their diet and physical activity. It should come as no surprise then that when exercise is included, the benefits are even better.
Akira Shimotoyodome and his fellow researchers presented findings that showed that exercise combined with green tea extract produced a much greater reduction of fat accumulation then exercising or using green tea extract alone. The report that supplementing with green tea increased the hepatic fatty acid oxidation in both exercised and non exercised group. However, in the exercised group, the green tea extract also stimulated skeletal muscle fatty acid oxidation.
From this, it is obvious that one of the outcomes of combining green tea extract with your exercise program is a synergistic effect for burning fat in your body. If there were ever a good argument for consuming green tea, this is it.
Another important aspect of green tea is it's relative safety. Even though green tea has been found to be very safe, some side effects do occur. Some of these side effects are constipation, diarrhea, nausea, restlessness and upset stomach. More severe side effects are rash, hives, swelling of the mouth, face, lips or tongue. It should go without saying that if any of these severe symptoms occur then you should seek medical attention.
In short, if you want to burn fat quickly, a combination of green tea along with exercise has been shown to be more effective than just using each option alone. It's synergistic effect will help shorten the time it takes for you to get the body you want and deserve.
