In a study from Switzerland, 6 out of 10 men who took a green tea supplement (the equivalent of 1 cup of green tea) 3X a day with their meals, burned about 80 more calories during the following 24 hours than those who took a caffeine pill or a dummy pill.
The researchers believe that flavonoids in the tea were responsible for the metabolism boost.
Green tea has also been shown to increase metabolism and fat oxidation, due to its thermogenic properties, according to a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
It also contains less caffeine than a coffee, fewer calories and is loaded with flavanoids and antioxidants.
