Previous studies have shown that drinking green tea may help boost memory, prevent blood sugar spikes, and even reduce disability that comes with age. Now, a recent study on shows that it may even help diabetic and obese patients avoid weight gain.

In a series of laboratory tests involving mice, Jae-Hyung Park and his colleagues from the Keimyung University School of Medicine in the Republic of Korea tried mixing green tea extract with a non-toxic resin called polyethylene glycol. They found that this mixture helped slow down the body’s absorption of glucose and reduced weight gain and insulin resistance.

If you’re looking for an alternative treatment to diabetes and weight gain, try asking your doctor about it today.
