Several studies have suggested that drinking green tea assists both exercise-driven weight loss or better weight control – one or the other is essential for those of us with PCOS.
Green tea may also help prevent reversible pre-diabetes, which is closely linked with PCOS, from becoming the irreversible type 2 variety.
Quite why it has these effects is not certain. But where weight is concerned, scientists think green tea speeds the rate at which fat is broken down in the body. Extra weight around the middle may the first to decrease, according to research. But you have to exercise regularly, too.
Green tea may also increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, reversing the condition called insulin resistance and reducing the risk of the onset of type 2 diabetes.
