The number of obese people are increasing at an alarming rate across the globe. Due to our sedentary life, we hardly can focus on healthy food as well as some physical activities.

Health enthusiasts must be aware of the green tea boom in Japan and how it later spread to many nations including India. However, aside from green tea, Japan has one more tea for weight loss and better health. It is prepared not from leaves but from black soybeans. As per an article published in the Journal Of Obesity, these black soybeans can treat obesity.
Black soybean, which we know as “Crown Prince of Beans,” contains an antioxidant called anthocyanin. As per the Journal of Medicinal Food, anthocyanin is found to limit fat absorption by increasing lipid metabolism. Being rich in fiber, the bean tea works as an appetite controller. And fewer calories means fewer fats.
This is not all, the presence of isoflavones and saponin aid to increase the rate of metabolism. And better metabolism tends to faster fat burning and because of that our weight loss goal becomes easier to achieve.
