A new study conducted by Poznan University, in Poland has found that taking green tea extract may help control the blood sugar levels in people that are overweight, allowing weight to be managed more effectively. Green tea has often been hailed as a super food, previously being linked to improved cardiovascular health, but new research finds that it may affect the body’s ability to control insulin levels. This new finding could potentially lead to preventative measures being implemented amongst those at risk of obesity.

The study of 56 patients also found that as well as affecting insulin levels, the individuals that were subject to green tea extract had significantly reduced blood pressure, glucose levels and inflammation in comparison to those that were taking a placebo. The researchers believe that inflammation may contribute to poor blood sugar control and high blood pressure, leading to wider health concerns.
