How does Green Tea help the Human Metabolism?

Green tea is known to be the most beneficial type of tea when it comes to healthy living. It is rich in antioxidants and other minerals and as study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that green tea extracts can lead to a 4% boost in metabolism over a defined day. Consuming 4–5 cups of green tea (with the added push of the caffeine) can also help burn up to an extra 70 calories a day (although this is number is relatively insignificant and changes depending on age, sex, body type, etc.).

It’s important to note that the caffeine present in green tea is really the driving force behind the slight increase in metabolism rate – if you want to increase the rate further, you should consume drinks with even greater caffeine content such as espresso, RedBull, etc.
