Yesterday on Dr. Oz it was announced that 4 cups of black tea a day can reduce belly fat.
L-theanine, an amino acid found only in tea, reduces stress and promotes relaxation. It works in a synergistic way with caffeine to calm to body without reducing caffeine alertness. The stress hormone cortisol can lead to excess glucose production, which your body then converts into fat. Studies have shown that, in addition to enhancing positive moods, black tea reduces cortisol levels. So stop belly fat before it starts by drinking four cups of black tea daily. Additionally, you can seek out tea infused with rhodiola, an herb that further reduces stress hormones. Getting rid of belly fat and stress? Now that’s a winning combination.
