Black tea has been shown to accelerate the metabolisms in mice, leading to weight loss and increasing their bodies ability to grow “good” microorganisms.
One thing to remember however is that black tea alone will not cause a person to lose weight. It is important to include physical exercise geared toward building muscle mass and increase your metabolism as well as improving your overall health and well being. Another plus to black tea is the fact that it is full antioxidants which also helps heart health as well as the weight loss factor.
- The study found that both types of tea can positively affect gut bacteria, but only black tea led to an increase in a type of bacteria called Pseudobutyrivibrio and short-chain fatty acids in the mice
- Our new findings suggest that black tea, through a specific mechanism through the gut microbiome, may also contribute to good health and weight loss in humans
- The results suggest that both green and black teas are prebiotics, substances that induce the growth of good microorganisms that contribute to a person’s well-being
