tea detox days
dr. t is an innovative approach in revolutionizing the traditional approach of green tea and healthy detox, our genetics are committed to natural technologies and science to bring out the full benefits inside a cup of pure organic green tea.
Not an ordinary detox tea, tea detox days from dr.t series offers a non invasive, simple and safest option to regulate and bring reduction to your body weight without using any harmful ingredients such as laxative and other cocktails of herbals.
Our recommended program starts from one week to two months.
rich cathecin green tea and weight loss
Multiple studies have been published showing that regular consumption of loose leave green tea containing high dose of cathecins may influence energy metabolism, body weight and body fat content.
Research into how the catechins, particularly EGCG, found in green tea benefit weight loss and fat distribution has been conducted in vitro (test tubes), using mice, and finally in clinical trials with humans. All three research techniques have produced results indicating that high doses of catechins can be effective for:
• Promoting weight loss
• Reducing waist circumference
• Improving energy metabolism
• Decreasing intra-abdominal fat
• Supporting maintenance of lost weight in a long term
not your ordinary detox/ slimming tea
unlike other slimming products out there that claim to drastically cut down your weight with mostly harmful ingredients,
tea detox days is made only from 100% pure organic green tea which specially grown to produce up to 80% of catechins to let your body perform the detox task naturally, not forcefully.
we also understand that natural doesn't mean safe
90% of the existing detox tea out there are made from strong cocktails of herbals and senna leaves which actually is laxative result bothersome side effects like diarrhea and temporary weight loss.
more on the studies ...
Two human studies suggested that catechins in green tea may help with weight loss. The first study gave healthy volunteers a beverage containing green tea catechins, caffeine and calcium 3 times per day and compared the 24 hour energy expenditure.
The green tea concoction increased the amount of calories burned by 106 cal/day or 4.6%. It is not possible to know whether the effect was due to the catechins, caffeine or calcium. Given that calcium has no known effect on metabolic rate, most believe the effect is due to a combination of catechins and caffeine. Luckily for us, green tea naturally contains both catechins and caffeine. In comparison to other studies of caffeine and metabolic rate, however, this green tea drink performed 50–100% better than expected compared to caffeine alone. Heart rate and blood pressure did not differ between the groups, so there was no evidence of excessive sympathetic stimulation by the caffeine that could explain the increased energy expenditure.
This echoes the results of an earlier study (Dulloo AG 1999) that found almost identical results, even though this study used half the amount of caffeine, they also showed a similar 4% increase in metabolic rate.
In this study, caffeine given alone did not increase energy expenditure. Most studies support the combination of caffeine and catechins, which is found naturally in green tea, although the concentrations of both are much higher in the extracts compared to brewed tea. The 2011 meta-analysis, comparing all studies on green tea, came to similar conclusions that catechin-caffeine mixtures increased energy expenditure by 4.7% and further, found evidence of a dose-response relationship. Only the catechin-caffeine mixtures increased fat oxidation.
It was noted during the Cochrane review that no study supported the use of brewed green tea, compared to the small but consistent benefits seen with green tea preparations that contain higher levels of catechins.
Catechins inhibit the enzyme COMT that degrades noradrenalin and cAMP. Blocking COMT increases noradrenalin, explaining the increased energy expenditure. Interestingly, there are genetic differences between COMT activity between races. Asians have higher rates of the high activity COMT(H) allele compared to some Caucasians, which have higher rates of the low-activity COMT(L) allele. Since Asians have the higher activity of COMT, blocking it with green tea catechins would be predicted to show greater effects, explaining the racial difference in the effect of the green tea catechins seen in some studies (1.51 kg versus 0.8 kg weight loss in Asians versus Caucasians). Green tea promote long term weight loss by maintaining basal metabolic rate.
Following are others few clinical trials that demonstrate the positive weight loss benefits of green tea’s catechins:
• In 2009, researchers in the Netherlands did a meta-analysis of 11 studies evaluating how the catechins found in green tea affect weight loss and weight management. According to their findings, “Catechins significantly decreased body weight and significantly maintained body weight after a period of weight loss.”(1)
• A randomized placebo-controlled trial in China studied the effects of catechins on weight and body composition. A total of 182 moderately overweight men and women were divided into four groups and given two beverage servings a day for 90 days. The beverage given to the control group contained almost no catechins while the other groups received catechin doses ranging from 458 mg/day to 886 mg twice a day. In their conclusions, the researchers said, “This investigation shows that regular consumption of a very-high catechin green tea [500-900 mg] over 90 days leads to significant reductions in measures such as body weight, waist circumference and intra-abdominal fat…”(2)
• Scientists know that in vitro, green tea extract inhibits gastric and pancreatic lipases (enzymes that break down fat) and stimulates thermogenesis (the fat-burning process). Based on these principles, an open-label trial was conducted to study the effects of green tea extract with EGCG on moderately obese patients. After three months, the subjects’ body weight decreased by 4.6% and waist circumference decreased by 4.5%.(3)
• Based on data from previous human studies indicating that green tea extracts may support body weight reduction by increasing thermogenesis and fat oxidation, a German study looked specifically at the effects of EGCG on weight loss. They found that EGCG “has the potential to increase fat oxidation in men and may thereby contribute to the anti-obesity effects of green tea.”(4)
