7. Green Tea
The secret of green tea lies in the fact that it’s rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Studies have shown that catechins in green tea help to inhibit the movement of glucose into fat cells. Green tea may also act as a glucose regulator.In other words it helps to slow the rise in blood sugar after a meal. If you can’t stand green tea’s taste you can add a green tea supplement to your stack.
