The benefits of green tea and gelatin
Coming from the camellia sinensis plant , the same plant that gives rise to black and white teas, green tea is quite popular in Brazil, mainly due to its active principles that speed up metabolism and contribute to the breakdown of fat.
Check out below what are the benefits of this tea:
- It acts on the body’s fat composition – According to some preliminary studies, one of the most present catechins in green tea stimulates several enzymes that control the metabolism of fats. In addition to promoting weight loss, this drink helps in a better body fat composition, reducing the chances of various diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension.
- Speeds up metabolism – With a thermogenic effect, green tea makes the metabolism work faster, which burns more energy in our body and prevents it from turning into fat and accumulating.
- Antioxidant – The catechins present in green tea have the power to fight free radicals in our body, fighting premature aging of cells and the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
Gelatine, on the other hand, is rich in collagen, an essential protein for the body and responsible for most tissues in our body. This food provides many benefits to the skin, nails and hair, in addition to helping to moderate hunger and prevent us from having the impulse to “attack the fridge”.
By mixing green tea and gelatin, we can enjoy the benefits of both and, individuals who want to lose weight, can achieve an even better result.
