Perks of Drinking Tea While Fasting

Fewer hunger pains. Since the body is used to having a consistent source of calories throughout the day, the cravings that arise during the initial few days, weeks, and even months for some dieters can be a challenge. A specific phenolic compound and antioxidant in tea called catechins may help reduce the production of ghrelin, a hunger-signaling hormone within the body, according to a 2016 study published in Clinical Nutrition.

    Increased relaxation. L-theanine, an amino acid found in green and black tea, can help lower stress levels, reports a 2019 study in Nutrients. The habit of brewing a cup and holding a warm mug might help naturally calm you down, too.

       

      More weight loss. A 2018 review in the journal Molecules confirmed that the polyphenols in tea—in particular green tea—could be beneficial for those aiming to lose a few pounds, thanks to the caffeine and a reaction within the gut microbiome that can trigger increased fat burning.
