Possibly: Some studies have shown patients decrease weight with certain amount of green tea ingestion. This has not been approved by the fda for weight loss. If nothing else, it may be a good substitute drink for many people in place of soda. That alone will help someone lose weight. See my website for more info: www.Jhsurgery.Com.

Yes: Green tea indirectly helps thyroid and boost metabolism and helps weight loss.
