Drinking Tea Helps You Lose Weight
Drinking black tea may promote weight loss and speed up your metabolism, a new study claims.

Published in the European Journal of Nutrition, researchers found that black tea stimulates the production of good bacteria in the gut and changes our energy metabolism in the liver via gut metabolites.

The University of California team collected their data through a series of experiments conducted on mice.
They cited both black and green tea as being beneficial in promoting weight loss, as both lower the amount of gut bacteria that is normally related to obesity while increasing the type of bacteria that is credited for creating lean body mass.

Whilst various studies have praised the health benefits of green tea, this new study is one of the first to reveal the benefits of polyphenols found in black tea.

These compounds stimulate the production of short-chain fatty acids in the gut, which the study says has been proven to boost one’s metabolic rate.
