Notice that obesity is Japan is defined as anything over BMI of 24.As test subjects, 10 males [presumably all Japanese, since the authors are in Japan] aged 32 to 69 (averaged age: 47.1 years old) with mild obesity (BMI>24) were chosen. Exclusion criteria included: daily intake of purple tea; allergic reactions; and serious disorders such as diabetes, liver disorders, kidney disorders or cardiovascular disease.
4-week daily consumption of purple tea drink in humans improved obesity parameters compared to baseline, including body weight (79.9 ± 3.1 kg vs 80.8 ± 3.2, p<0.05), body mass index (BMI) (26.8 ± 0.6 vs 27.0 ± 0.6, p<0.05) and body fat mass (21.0 ± 1.4 kg vs 21.8 ± 1.5, p<0.01).While there were no significant changes in blood parameters, HDL-cholesterol and HbA1c levels tended to be lower than those of before ingestion

Maybe they went to the gym more; maybe they changed their diets; maybe purple tea extracts should be on all our shopping lists. Unfortunately, this study from 2015 doesn't tell us.
