Scientists have discovered that a cup of the beverage may facilitate a faster weight loss by stimulating a growth of bacteria that boosts metabolism.
The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) Researchers found out that the ratio of bacteria located in the intestine was altered by black and green tea. They observed that the total percentage of the bacteria involved actively in obesity reduced, while those that facilitate lean body mass appreciated.
Studies before now have shown that polyphenols, a chemical in green tea are taken in and change the liver’s energy metabolism.
Black tea polyphenols
The recent study, released in the European Journal of Nutrition, illustrates that black tea polyphenols often larger than that which can be broken down in the small intestine, initiate gut bacterium growth and the making of short-chain fatty acids, one that has been confirmed to change liver metabolism.
Results gotten indicate that the dup, green and black teas are essentially prebiotics, Prebiotics are chemical materials that stimulate the growth of good microorganisms, which contribute favorably to the well being of an individual according to researchers.
“Green tea polyphenols from previous knowledge are observed to be more effective and provide more benefits healthwise as compared to black tea polyphenols because green tea chemicals are supplied to the blood and tissue,” Susanne Henning, a professor at UCLA stated. “Black tea is most likely to sponsor good health and the loss of weight” Henning shared.
