Sip Up and Slim Down

Drink More Green Tea

Green tea is perhaps the most proven natural substance for weight loss. Many studies suggest that it can speed up the body's calorie-burning engine temporarily, through the action of a specific phytonutrient known as EGCG. In just one study, green tea standardized for EGCG was shown to speed up metabolism over and above the effects of caffeine by 4%. That's 4% more calories burned by doing nothing!

Green tea is also one of the strongest antioxidants known for its potential preventive effects on cancer. In several studies EGCG, the main antioxidant in green tea was shown to prevent cancer cells from growing. Isn’t It time that you added more green tea to your daily routine? Below are some simple/tasty ways how.to do it.

Drink Green Tea on ice: In the summertime keep pitchers of green tea on ice in your fridge. You’ll be more likely to reach for green tea than water/juice for a metabolism boost and cancer protective blast. You can also pour iced green tea into your water bottle and take it to go. You’ll stay hydrated and burn more calories just sitting at your desk or lying at the pool.

Make shakes with Matcha: Add Matcha to your daily shake. Matcha is the pure form of green tea and is very high in antioxidants. It also happens to be delicious with vanilla yogurt and a banana blended together. Another easy addition for delicious green tea power!

Have a tea for dessert: Instead of reaching for a high calorie sweet dessert, have a flavoured green tea. Today’s grocery shelves have a plethora of green tea flavours that are calorie-free and can satisfy your need for a sweet taste after dinner. Try peach-mango, vanilla-cherry or whatever you please and enjoy!

Add a supplement: The major antioxidant in green tea extract known as EGCG has been shown to burn more calories at rest. However, only green tea extract standardized for 270 mg of EGCG daily has been proven to work to increase metabolism.


If you take a green tea extract with lower doses of EGCG it will not have the desired effect. Use a supplement like NutraCentials WeightOFF MAX that contains precisely 270 mg of EGCG daily and get on track to lose more weight faster and defend against cancer.

Some supplements will even combine EGCG with other fat burning nutrients. Weight off by Nuvocare is a perfect example. By combining the research proven dosage of EGCG, Svetol and Garcinia Cambogia you get even more fat-burning power at rest!
