Lipton green tea is simple, pure and delicious. It is made from the finest leaves in the world. There are many variants of Lipton green tea like 100% natural green tea (basic green tea), cranberry pomegranate, lemon ginseng, mint, decaffeinated honey lemon, passion-fruit and jasmine etc.

Though all of these variants are good and effective, I will discuss about the basic Lipton green tea in this article. This green tea provides flavonoids to our body which encourages weight loss. 8 fl oz serving of Lipton green tea provides 150 mg of flavonoids. It has 0 g fat, 0 mg sodium and 0 g carbohydrates in it, though it can provide 35 mg caffeine per serving.

Is Lipton Green Tea Good for Weight Loss?

Let me now tell you about some of the benefits of Lipton green tea for weight loss:

1. It helps your body to burn more fat. The variant of green tea which contains honey and pomegranate is a better option for weight loss. But all the variants have almost the same impact on our body

2. It is made from 100% natural leaves. This means there are no chemically-treated elements present it in, thus making it safe to be included in your daily regime.

3. Drinking 2 to 4 cups of Lipton green tea in a day is safe and helps you to lose weight at a faster pace.

4. As I have already mentioned, it is considered as an anti-oxidant powerhouse. So, it tends to block the conversion of energy or ingested calories into fat. This blocks the fat storage and its production in our body. This automatically hinders excessive weight gain.

5. There are also some natural relaxants present in it that help you to relieve stress and improve your metabolism. This promotes weight loss and helps to maintain your fitness and health.

    I try to avoid drinks or teas with caffeine with them so would I get the same benefits, such as weight loss, by drinking the lipton caffeine free brand? Thanks

      Hi Sara, green tea helps in efficient working of our metabolism. While consuming green tea you can avoid taking any other drink which has caffeine in it. Lipton Green tea which contains honey and pomegranate is a better option for weight loss, however other flavors also have the same benefit.

    Hi Sandipan, apart from consuming lemon and honey water in the morning…it is absolutely fine to consume a cup of green tea…once or twice in a day. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that have good effects on the body. This includes improved brain function, fat loss, a lower risk of cancer and many other incredible benefits. Any good remedy has a side effect too if taken in a larger quantity. In such case consult your doctor if you show any signs of nausea or dizziness.

          And i am loseing my hair day by day what i should do to protect them and increase my hair and prevent from hair falll

          • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

            Dear Sandipan, some of the ways to control hairfall are:
            1. Coconut milk – Grind the grated coconut and squeeze it to remove its milk. Massage coconut milk on the scalp to reduce hair fall.
            2. Aloevera – Dissolve a small amount of sodium chloride in the aloevera gel. Now apply this mix on the scalp. The sodium will penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin and reduce hair fall.
            3. Oil massage – Regular massaging the scalp for a few minutes every day with lukewarm oil will lead to stimulation of blood flow to the scalp.
            Hope you find these tips to be useful !!

    Hi Roopali, used tea bags can be used in different other ways, such as:
    1. To brew stronger tea – save your used tea bags and add one to the next cup you brew. While a used bag doesn’t pack the same punch as a fresh one, the twice-brewed leaves will still lend a bit more flavor to the second cup.
    2. Add flavor to pasta and grains – you can re-use the bag to flavor other foods. Hang the pre-brewed bags into a pot of water while it comes to a boil to flavor the water, remove use tea bags, then add your pasta, rice, or other grains.
    3. use it in garden – open up used tea bags and sprinkle the damp leaves around the base of your plants to fertilize the soil and deter garden pests like mice. Hope you find this info to be useful !!

    Hi Kilee, these days the market is flooded with tea green flavored products such as ice cream, noodles etc. But the weight-loss benefits are in the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a health-boosting antioxidant found in green tea and not the green tea flavor. The weight-loss benefits are maximized when it’s served hot. While preparing a cup of green tea don’t let the water come to a full boil. Instead, pour the water over the tea bag right before it boils (the point where tiny bubbles begin to form). Then, let the tea steep for about 2-4 minutes.

    Hi Kates, the procedure to make iced green tea is:
    1. In a saucepan, pour boiling water over tea bags; cover and steep 5 minutes.
    2. Remove tea bags from water, squeezing gently.
    3. Stir in 2 cups cold water and sweetener, stirring until sweetener dissolves.
    4. Serve over ice or let tea come to room temperature then serve over ice.
    Hope this helps.

    Hi Sudipta, a high-carb diet is a big driver of PCOS because it increases blood sugar too much. The high blood sugar causes increases in insulin, which leads to a condition called “insulin resistance”. And insulin resistance is widely believed to be the main cause of PCOS and other chronic health problems. Green tea contains a substance called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is a potent insulin sensitizer, improving glucose tolerance. The best way to minimize the effects of PCOS is to cut down on the amount of refined carbohydrates in your diet. Have one or two cups of green tea per day, once in the morning and one in the evening.

    i am considering starting the use of green tea as part of my diet but i can only drink one cup at day and thats at night before bed and after a work out as i because of work hours i dont have the time to drink the tea before i start my work out . is this still ok ?

    • http://www.stylecraze.com/ StyleCraze

      Hi Mohan, it is fine to have one cup of green tea in a day. However it would be good to have the tea in the morning or post lunch instead of at night or post workout. Avoid green tea in the evening if you are sensitive to caffeine.
