How To Use Lipton Green Tea For Weight Loss September 19, 2017

Green tea is the world’s healthiest drink. And Lipton green tea is one of the most trusted green tea brands in the world. Catechins in green tea are strong antioxidants that help prevent weight gain, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, etc. (1). So, you must drink at least 2 cups of green tea per day. But, the taste can put you off. On top of that, the best brands of green tea come with a high price tag. Fortunately, Lipton is a well-known company that offers pure green tea as well as a wide range of flavored green teas that are priced at a reasonable rate. Read on to find out how to use Lipton green tea to lose weight.

Lipton Green Tea For Weight Loss

Lipton green tea is simple, pure, light, and delicious. It is made from the finest leaves in the world. There are many variants of Lipton green tea, such as 100% natural green tea (basic green tea), cranberry pomegranate, lemon ginseng, mint, decaffeinated honey lemon, passionfruit, and jasmine. Recently, Lipton has come out with flavored tea bags such as Lemon Zest, Mint Burst, Honey Lemon, and Tulsi Natural. These are available in packs of 100, 25, and 10 tea bags.

Though all of these variants are good and effective, I will discuss 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 of caffeine per serving. Caffeine induces thermogenesis and improves fat oxidation (2). Therefore, it is clear that green tea can help you lose weight. But is Lipton green to good enough? Find out next.

  1. 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.
  2. Lipton green tea is loaded with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a catechin that is found in green tea. It helps your body to burn fat and increases your body’s insulin sensitivity (3). EGCG has also been found to inhibit fatty liver disease in lab rats (4). If you are a beginner, then the green tea containing honey and pomegranate is a better option for weight loss. But all the variants have the same impact on your body.
  3. Drinking 2 to 4 cups of Lipton green tea in a day is safe and helps you to lose weight quickly.
  4. As I have already mentioned, it is considered as an antioxidant 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, which automatically leads to quick and permanent weight loss.
  5. There are also some natural relaxants present in it that help you to combat stress and improve your metabolism (5). This promotes weight loss as stress can lead to weight gain.
