A cuppa health

Weight Watchers Magazine (Australia) - - Food//Fit//Feel -

Just in case you need an­other rea­son to put the ket­tle on, ac­cord­ing to a new study, cer­tain tea va­ri­eties pro­mote the growth of healthy gut bac­te­ria which con­trib­ute to good health and might also sup­port weight loss. In a lab-based study, US re­searchers found that ex­tracts from both green and black tea al­ter the makeup of in­testi­nal mi­crobes, so that the vol­ume of bac­te­ria as­so­ci­ated with obe­sity de­creased, while the pres­ence of bac­te­ria linked with lean body mass grew. So grab a cuppa – it’s not only a great way to take a break, it might even be ben­e­fi­cial for your weight loss!
