According to medical research, green tea extract is capable of providing an array of health benefits.
Besides aiding weight loss, green tea extract appears to have a dampening effect on testosterone, which may explain its benefit with skin conditions like acne or hair thinning. It also helps to avoid fat accumulation in the liver, called "non-alcoholic fatty liver disease", a disorder that afflicts up to 50% of women with PCOS. Green tea has also been reported to suppress appetite.
Importantly, the University Medical School Schleswig-Holstein in Germany has reported that green tea extract blocks an enzyme that leads to cortisol production. This means that green tea extract can help to better regulate cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone that contributes to belly fat and other health problems. High or disordered cortisol levels are frequent among women with PCOS.
Green tea is also a potent antioxidant, and supports the cardiovascular and immune systems.
