One of the many benefits of green tea is its ability to suppress appetite. Green Tea has various antioxidants and plant compounds beneficial to the human body, which could be one reason for its ability to stave off hunger.
In addition to its hunger suppressant abilities, green tea is also claimed to have weight- loss and fat-burning properties.
It is known that drinking green tea can suppress hunger and thus aid in weight- loss as it affects the production of catechloamines in the body. Catechloamines are peptide hormones, which activate the sympathetic nervous system.
In studies, researchers have found that the active compound in green tea, EGCG, helps to mediate food appetite by inhibiting an enzyme that would normally break down catecholamines.
