In addition, it facilitates burning of calories, this is by the stimulation of thermo genesis; the body generates energy and heat from the digesting food which prevent the accumulation of carbohydrates in the body. However, this has a slight effect and studies have not shown if it has a large effect (Buchanaan et al 309)
Clinical studies also show that tea and coffee extracts may boost metabolism and assist to burn fats.
