Among all types of teas, green tea has a long history dated back to 2737 BC. According to the myths it is said that Chinese Emperor Shennong and his troop stopped at a place to have some rest. There he asked for a cup of hot water. While he is drinking that cup of hot water a few tea leaves had fallen to the cup without the emperor’s notice. He drank this hot water cup which had fresh tea leaves and thought that the teacup is flavorful and refreshing and therefore, he asked to give this teacup every day and then it became a tradition. After some decades this tradition of tea drinking stepped all over the South East Asia and eventually all over the world. At the beginning, green tea was only available for the upper-class people at higher rates and later it was made available for the general public. During the 5th century tea drinking became a ritual and emergence of “tea ceremonies” were a unique way of showing social convention over China.

It is said that a cup of green tea contains a considerable amount of caffeine. Though this amount of caffeine is considered to be a very small amount when compared with other caffein inclusive products such as coffee, this small amount of caffein component has the ability of boosting fat burning in the human body and will help with the ease of exercising. Green tea is considered to be rich in antioxidants. Antioxidants meant to boost the metabolism level of the individual where metabolism rate is the rate where food we intake convert into a form of usable energy. If the metabolism rate is high the weight loss become speedy and if the metabolism rate is low the speed of weight loss becomes low. If you drink a green tea cup it will increase the number of antioxidants in the blood and improve the weight loss process through increasing the metabolism rate because in the manufacturing process of green tea, it is not undergoing a 100% oxidation process unlike in black tea. Therefore, a lot of oxidants are secured in the process.

There are some capsules to be taken orally to ease up the removal of unwanted oil we taken from food. If we eat oily food like fries, doughnuts, short-eats, all the unwanted oils are stored in different parts of the body. To avoid that there are some pills where intaking these pills will discharge all the oils from the food we intake through stools. Therefore, oily discharge of stools will be occurred. These products are only advised to be used to by overweight or obese people. These capsules have to be taken before each and every meal and if you skip taking one meal, there is no need of taking a pill for that meal. There are some enzymes in the digestive system and small intestine. Normally, when we eat food, the enzymes will start to act and will breakdown the fat and will help in absorbing all the fat into blood. Because of these capsules all the enzymes will be blocked and stopped absorbing to the blood. Therefore, the unabsorbed fat will be started to release through stools. The disadvantage of this pills is, oily discharge of stools, headaches, aches in back passage, urgent need to lose bowel etc.
When you are planning to take any of these pills or supplements it is advisable to take these pills by different persons. Pregnant ladies, breast feeding mothers, if you are suffering from kidney problems, if you have problems related to digestive system where you have food digesting problems which make you unable to digest food properly, it is advised to not take these pills.
