Green Tea Diet Pills 

Green tea diet pills have green tea extract in the pills and these pills claim to decrease the appetite by stimulating the nervous system and increase fat and calorie metabolism. Green tea contains good amounts of antioxidants and other compounds like epigallocatechin gallate which helps to burn fat faster. Green tea can effectively increase the energy expenditure by increasing the metabolic rate and thus the body can purge out excess calories. Green tea and its components works much faster in losing weight if you support it by exercising more and eating a low calorie diet. If green tea pills are taken along with a low calorie diet and regular physical activity then in a study performed at the University of Birmingham showed that it can burn fat 17 % faster, 17 % more fat burn and improve insulin sensitivity which in turn helps the muscles to take up glucose as a source of energy after exercise.

Although these pills claim to be very effective and free of any side effects there is limited evidence about green tea pills to support what they claim. These pills may contain a large amount of caffeine and overdose can cause diarrhea, vomiting, bloating, indigestion and other gastrointestinal disturbances. While you are on the pills you need to take a low calorie diet and exercise too for the pills to be effective.
