A study revealed that drinking 300 ml of oolong tea four times a day can help people lose one kilogram of fat in six weeks, and improve body fat metabolism.
It has been proven that oolong tea can increase metabolic rates by 2.9% compared to water. This equates to burning approximately 281 calories per day, on average.
According to another study published in the journal Nutrients, it was reported that oolong tea can “burn fat while you sleep.”
Study lead author Professor Kombe Tokuyama said: ‘Like all teas, oolong contains caffeine, which affects energy metabolism by increasing our heart rates. However, studies show that tea consumption may also increase fat breakdown, regardless of the effects of caffeine.
The study showed that oolong tea boosted fat breakdown by about 20% compared to participants in the control group. Studies have also shown a loss of about three kilograms of weight in 12 weeks.
