Though green tea is packed with antioxidants which are important for good health, green tea on its own is not a magic cure for weight loss.

This being said, green tea is a healthy drink which can certainly form part of your weight loss programme. In addition, green tea may improve your workouts as it has the ability to increase your blood flow, which then results in improved oxygenation to your bodily organs.
