Weight Loss: Impressive Results with a Green Tea and Vitamin E Combination

An Effective Weight Loss Strategy

Impressive Results with a Green Tea and Vitamin E Combination

Men and women lost weight and lowered
blood glucose levels

Health factors improved with walking and nutrients
By walking, drinking three cups of green tea, and taking 400 IU of vitamin E per day, overweight men and women, average age 71, were able to lose from two to five inches around the waist, and lower fasting blood glucose levels by an average of 5.8 mg per deciliter of blood, a 5 percent decrease.
Doctors gave 22 older overweight men and women a placebo or green tea with vitamin E, and asked participants to walk for 30 minutes per day, six days a week. After 12 weeks, while the placebo group had not improved, those taking green tea with vitamin E had greater exercise capacity, had lost a significant amount of weight and abdominal fat mass, had lower fasting glucose levels and fewer signs of oxidative stress, all while keeping their typical diet.
