But, there’s another great reason to drink green tea. Green tea contains a potent plant nutrient known as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, for short. Multiple studies that EGCG seriously targets belly fat. Research at Tufts University indicates that EGCG in green tea, like other catechins, activate fat-burning genes in the abdomen to speed weight loss by 77 percent.
