Green TeaWell, it’s one weight loss drink, which is widely propagated tea companies. But several study findings are inconsistent with regards to just how much green tea actually benefits healthy weight loss in human beings.

While it is true that green tea is rich in flavinoids and that flavinoids have various health benefits, it is also true that black tea has theaflavins – also healthy, also supported by health studies. Further – “All the proven scientific benefits of green tea would hold true only if large quantities are consumed i.e. 8-10 cups/day which is not advisable. So the health benefits one gets out of consuming 2-3 cups/day are better bowel movements, prevention of gastrointestinal bacterial infections and better immunity provided fresh fruits and vegetables are a part of the daily diet.
