Green Tea Revs Metabolism

Green tea doesn't just warm your bones, studies show that its catechins _prime muscles to burn fat for fuel up to 77 percent more efficiently. The proven dose? Two cups daily. This ensures the fat released by L-arginine_ (a naturally occurring amino acid) is quickly burned for energy. L-arginine stimulates the production of human growth hormone (HGH), which helps the body break down its fat stores and increase muscle mass. This powerful amino acid also causes fat to burn itself up, as seen in a study where animals given L-arginine had a 34 percent increase in brown fat—a metabolically active form of fat that burns calories to generate heat. Experts says that increased levels of L-arginine could help you trim pounds through the holidays while enjoying a host of perks, including a 26 percent boost in immunity, a 21 percent increase in endurance and a 41 percent reduction in stress.
