 Drink Tea Without Milk to Lose Weight

Tea can help in weight loss but these antioxidants in tea which aid in weight-loss are neutralized if milk is added to it. The antioxidants present in tea reduce the amount of fat absorption in the gut and can also cut cholesterol.

The research was conducted by an Indian scientist, Devajit Bortharkar from the Tea Research Association in Assam. He has found that the fat-fighting ability of compounds like theaflavins and thearubigins is canceled out by the proteins present in cow's milk. The antioxidants present in the tea form complexes with the milk protein which helps them to precipitate.
