1. Weight Loss

Yeah, this one is a biggie. Anything that claims to help people lose weight is going to get loads of attention, and green tea is certainly not an exception. 


It is believed that green tea helps to rev up your body’s metabolism, which results in increased weight loss. 

Ask anyone who has had to deal with hyperthyroidism. 

Increased metabolism almost always equals weight loss.

With diabetes reaching what some consider to be epidemic proportions in the western world, this potential benefit of drinking green tea is definitely and attention-grabber.

 It is believed that green tea helps to regulate glucose levels in the blood, which means it may help to prevent diabetes.


"Green tea is good for people with diabetes because it helps the metabolic system function better."

Suzanne Steinbaum, DO


2013 research review published in the Diabetes and Metabolism Journal outlined the potential benefits of tea when it comes to diabetes as well as obesity, which is a risk factor for diabetes. It highlighted a Japanese study that found that people who drank 6 or more cups of green tea a day were 33 percent less likely to develop type 2 diabetes than were people who drank less than a cup of green tea a week. 

It also reported on Taiwanese research that found that people who drank green tea regularly for more than a decade had smaller waists and a lower body fat composition than those who weren't regular consumers of green tea.

Drinking Green Tea for diabetes is such a good idea because tea contains substances called polyphenols, antioxidants found in every plant. “Polyphenols help reduce oxidative stress and cause vasodilation (widening of the arteries), which decreases blood pressure, prevents clotting, and reduces cholesterol,” Dr. Steinbaum says. All of these activities reduce the risk for heart disease, which is elevated in people with diabetes. Polyphenols in green tea can also help regulate glucose in the body, helping to prevent or control diabetes.
