Green tea keeps gaining more popularity as a weight loss aid and now a new study suggests it may also help with heart disease and stroke. Researchers state this is due to the catechins (antioxidants) it contains. (Purdue University suggests that these are unstable compounds and to get more out of drinking your tea you should use some lemon juice in your tea as you will derive 13 times more catechin benefit.)

It’s still not the magic bullet to lose weight, you still have to cut back on overall calories, exercise and drink your water.  But now you can drink something  good for you in addition to water which will actually help your body possibly lose even more weight in the process. And with so many great tasting versions of green tea, that should make just about everyone happy.
