Dr. Oz: Metabolism-Boosting Teas and Wrinkle Cream Tips

green tea metabolism booster
Dr. Mehmet Oz served up metabolism boosting secrets and discussed anti-aging wrinkle creams on the July 29 episode of the Dr. Oz Show.

Dr. Oz said iced white tea promotes weight loss by increasing your metabolism. What’s more, white tea is rich in disease-fighting antioxidants that prevent your body from storing fat and prevents conditions such as cancer and diabetes.

Another well known metabolism booster isĀ matcha green tea, which contains EGCG, an antioxidant that has been shown to burn fat and protect against the free-radical damage that causes aging and cancer.

Studies show drinking two cups of green tea a day can help reduce belly fat. Green tea can also prevent fat storage and reduce your risks for heart disease and cancer.

Finally, another metabolism-boosting tea is yerba mate tea, which is popular in South America. Yerba mate has been shown to increase calorie burn and suppress appetite.

On a separate segment, Dr. Oz welcomed former Vogue magazine beauty editor Andrea Robinson. Robinson, author of Toss the Gloss, said you can find effective anti-aging wrinkle creams without spending a fortune.

To demonstrate, Andrea compared a fancy $26 lipstick to a $6 drugstore brand and revealed they were both made by the same cosmetics company and contained similar ingredients.

This is because most major cosmetics companies own various different brands which are sold under different names, so they’re actually selling both the high-end product and their cheaper versions.

To avoid pay extra, Andrea said you should pay attention to the list of ingredients, and noted the following have been have been shown effective in laboratory studies: retinoids, antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and alpha hydroxy acids.
