    A cup of green tea a day keeps obesity away has become the latest motto of obese people. There is no surprise al all attached to it.

    Obese people have plenty of good options to lose weight. Probably, the healthiest option is the consumption of good old green tea. Regular intake of green tea is necessary for sustainable weight loss. Green tea comes with a reasonable price tag. In addition, it is also a scientifically proven and a tested method. It is the best natural way to lose weight.

    For the past 3000 years, Green tea was a part of the ancient Chinese culture. Most Chinese consume only Green Tea. This is the main reason why the Chinese have a long life and fewer proportions of obese people compared to any other nation on the earth. Incidentally, green tea comes from the same tree as the black tea. The only fact of difference is the manner in which the tealeaves are processed.

    Green Tea Benefits:

    Green tea not only benefits people who look forward to weight loss, but also those who suffer from heart disease. Scientists believe that regular consumption of green tea helps combat the risks of heart disease. In addition, green tea lowers the risk of cancer and has anti-oxidant properties.

    Green tea also works as a regulator for glucose. It is because of an enzyme amylase. It helps to slow down the increase of blood sugar level in the body after meals.

    How does Green Tea Function?

    Mostly, green tea functions by increasing the metabolism of the body, which is also termed as thermo genesis. It helps to burn more calories. Tests have proved that regular intake of green tea helps a person to lose around 78 calories each day. It also increases the oxidation rate of fats in the body.

    In addition, it reduces the fat digestion process and it prevents the release of enzymes related to its digestion. The body, through a natural process, clears out the food that remains undigested.

    Scientific researches have shown that, individuals who had consumed green tea on a regular basis have lower proportion of body fat in them, as compared to those who do not drink green tea regularly.

    Based on the American Journal of Clinical nutrition, the main factor responsible to reduce body fat is catechin, normally observed in green tea. It also causes the decrease of the bad cholesterol levels in the body. They also help to control the weight with their prevention of glucose in the fat cells. This prevents the buildup of excess sugars and fats in the body. The main reason why green tea is so effective in nature is the combination of a plant chemical and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) and the caffeine contained in the tea. They help increase the production of noradrenalin. It suppresses the appetite of the body and boosts metabolism rate. With the help of green tea, individuals can loose weight anywhere between 2 to 2 1/2 pounds each month.

    The longer you cycle, the more you realize that sports drinks are essential to your cycling rides. They have also known for long that drinking water is extremely crucial for any cycling rides. But in order to take cycling to the next level and making it more efficient, consuming sports drinks is inevitable. This is exactly why professional cyclists can be seen drinking sports drinks all the time, other than water.

    Are sports drinks really useful? Yes. It might not be beneficial for beginner cyclists who cycle small distance. For example, a 50-mile ride is considered a long ride. But first, you have to get your facts clear on glycogen.

    Glycogen is a type of compound which is found in your liver and muscles. Glycogen is energy for your body. Your muscles simply cannot function without it. When you go for long cycling rides, your glycogen level will decrease. Given the rider puts in his maximum effort for 3 hours straight when cycling, he or she will deplete his glycogen reserve and “hit the wall” or bonk. The terms “hit the wall” and bonk is akin to losing all energy. Therefore, sports drinks are essential to replace those needed energy.

    Sports drinks can help to maintain your glycogen level. But how much should you drink? The answer to that question is 6 percent of glucose for every 20 minutes or so. In other words, you have to consume 500 to 700 milliliters of sports drinks every hour. That can be a little costly for some people. But there are simply no other ways.

    Sports drinks contain simple and complex carbohydrates. These two carbohydrates are then broken down into glycogen for your cycling muscles. Another benefit of drinking sports drinks is that they encourage you to drink more water.

    The reason is sports drinks also contain sodium. Sodium combined with glucose will encourage the absorption rate of water for your intestines. Therefore, another important ingredient is sodium. Salt is the similar term to sodium. But if you look carefully at most sports drinks, they do not have sufficient sodium percentage.

    The solution to this problem is to stock up on your salt or sodium storage before cycling. Eat salty foods and consume drinks that are filled with electrolyte before starting your ride.

    There are a ton of different sports drinks out there. How to choose one? A good advice is to look at the nutritional values and see if it contains the necessary ingredients; simple carbohydrates, complex carbohydrates and sodium. These three would be sufficient. Then you just have to experiment by using your stomach. If it feels good after drinking a specific sports drink brand, then stick with it.

    People have energy drinks for mainly two reasons. First is to boost their energy especially during strenuous work-outs and second to improve their mental and physical stamina, increasing their muscle strength and decreasing their fatigue levels. Though they know that these drinks do give them an added advantage, they do know the reason why.

    The combination of ingredients present in energy drinks like caffeine, vitamins, amino acids, certain herbs and sugar is the reason behind them giving that extra dose of energy. These ingredients replenish the energy levels in your body thus making you feel more energetic. To understand how energy drinks work, it is important to know how each ingredient works individually.

    Caffeinated Products

    Caffeinated Products is one of the most common ingredients in most energy drinks. Most 15 or 16 oz energy drink cans contain about 140 to 170 mg of caffeine, depending on the brand. Studies have shown that people who took caffeine have an increased level in brain activity, indicating that the intake of caffeine is able to boost your mental performance to a certain degree. Also, fatigued people who took caffeine were reported to have an increased level of alertness as compared to those who did not.

    Glucose

    The ingredient that provides energy to our body and helps it run normally is glucose. Therefore, the assumption that extra glucose will boost up your energy isn’t wrong. This is the reason why all energy drinks have a certain amount of sugar in them.

    Carbohydrates

    In most energy drinks carbohydrates are found in the form of fructose, sucrose, glucose or glucose polymers. This is because it is form of energy which you body can readily use.

    Salt

    Salt is also another ingredient in energy drinks that helps its drinkers absorb fluid and replenish lost minerals better. Salt also helps stimulate drinkers to want to drink more fluids, thereby prompting an increase in fluid intake. So if you sweat a lot, drinking energy drinks that have salt as one of their ingredients is generally a good idea.

    It is important to know that though caffeine, sugar and salt boost your energy, they also make you feel shaky, fidgety and “wired”. Though you may feel energetic at first, once its effects wear off you feel drained.

    The energy drinks that include more of a natural blend of ingredients such as the acai berry and green tea taste just as great and can be better for your health as well.

    All energy drinks basically function the same way, which is to give its drinkers an energy boost. However, certain ingredients in the composition of some energy drinks may have other helpful benefits (or non-helpful) aside from giving an energy boost.

    In a nutshell, you can conclude by saying if you are performing strenuous physical activities for which you require an added shot of energy, then drinking energy drinks would be a good option. The reason increases more so now since you know how they function and benefit your performance.

    Japanese food erasers are tiny, ultra cute erasers. I would not even think of using these to actually erase anything because they look so great. These erasers are usually pretty small–no larger than a marble usually. You can find them in sets most of the time. They are also sold individually if you’re trying to find specific food items to add to your collection.

    So instead of buying just a food item, you’ll get a full meal! The color and detail on these erasers are incredible. They are brightly, fully colored and have very good detail. There are styles that are made more cute and cartoony, but some are also pretty realistic. School kids and even older adults love these.

    There are many manufacturers of these lovely little food erasers so you have a very large selection to choose from. Some big brand names that make these are Hapa Culture, Iwako, Itasho and more.

    So many different styles of erasers are available! You can find many styles such as:

    -fast food
    -sushi
    -bento boxes
    -tea
    -baked goods
    -dim sum
    -Mexican food
    -Italian food

    If you’ve eaten it, there’s probably a miniature eraser made for it too. There are so many varieties available it is mind spinning! You could collect these forever.

    These erasers make great gifts since they are so cute! They are pretty rare depending on where you are so they are special when the recipient gets them. You will likely be able to find a food eraser for their favorite food too.

    The ones I have seen are non-toxic so you can give them to children too given they are not too young to swallow it.

    I have not seen any other companies make these food erasers other than Japanese ones. You can be sure there are common Japanese erasers such as sushi, cakes, tea, and noodles. But they know everyone would love these so a ton of other foods are available.

    Buying and selling of soft drinks is one business that completely depends on the existing demand for the drink, and a good knowledge about the popular soft drinks that are usually preferred over the others. The other important thing that determines the success of the business is the sourcing of these items at good economical rates. One has to do a thorough research in the existing market conditions, regarding the existing wholesale suppliers of similar beverages, who also provide a variety of drinks to cater to the tastes of different people.

    After getting information about these wholesale soft drink suppliers, one can start the discussion with such dependable wholesale suppliers who provide supplies at good economical rates. During the initial period of the business, the drink distributor should always make the payment to their wholesale suppliers promptly in order to develop a sense of trust. This trust will come in handy when the soft drink distributor finds it difficult to make the payment during certain tough times later.

    While fixing the rate at which the retailer sells the soft drink, the retailer has to depend on volume rather than the margins. By keeping a low margin, the retailer can drive in more customers because of the economical rates, thereby increasing the volume of consumption. The wholesale suppliers of the drinks to the retail business owner should have a very good record of making timely shipments to the retailer. As the business is totally driven by the volume, the wholesaler should be able to ship all the crates that have been promised as part of the initial purchase order.

    Timely shipment is another factor to consider. Wholesale suppliers should be able to meet the schedule as promised with the retailer. If they had promised to deliver 50 crates of a particular soft drink by early morning, then they should stick to their commitment given and make the crates available.

    Though there will be customers coming over to the retailer location to have their soft drink, the retailer can also try to get in a number of corporate customers in the form of small hotels and pubs in the local area. By supplying to these local pubs and hotels, the retailer can increase their sales volume, and help move them up the ladder in terms of size. The retailer need not wait for the pub owner to come and contact them directly.
