Top Herbal teas for Weight loss
Among herbal teas, there are a few very prominent ones that are immensely beneficial, the effects of which have been tried and tested, and results studied over several years. Oolong Tea and Pu-erh Tea are two of the top herbal teas available in the market. These are teas that help speed up digestion, bring down cholesterol levels, increase metabolism and can actually shrink fat cells.
Tea is one beverage that has been consumed since several centuries. The Asian culture has been loyal to the beverage since the beginning of time, and the physical constitution of the people and their longevity are physical proofs of the health benefits of this beverage.
Oolong Tea:A prominent, feted herbal tea, Oolong is highly consumed across several countries. This semi-oxidized and slightly fermented tea grown in China, has an amazing depth of flavors and complex body of taste that is very addictive. It's robust health benefits overshadow the flavor, since it is known to fight with every kind of symptom related to ageing; cholesterol, vascular disease, arthritis and blood pressure. Most importantly, it helps burn fat faster, and prevents their storage in the body, thereby aiding weight loss. Oolong tea has polyphenols that increase metabolism and block enzymes that cause fat build up. Enjoying the tea in its basic form, without addition of sweeteners and sugars, enhances its benefits even further.
Another prominent beverage from the Yunnan province of China, Pu-erh Tea is richer, deeper and darker. Made by a natural process that includes microbial fermentation and oxidation of tea leaves, the tea has a black rich color and is considerably aged before being used as a beverage. This microbial aging produces 'lovastatin', a natural statin, which reduces fat build-up in the body, and hastens weight loss. Pu-erh Tea aids digestion, by enhancing healthy gut microbes, suppresses fatty acid synthesis (FAS) and blunts lipogenisis (fat creation by the liver) and helps in secretion of epinehrine and norepinephrine which increases breakdown of stored fatty acids in fat cells. It also helps increase cell levels of HSL or Hormone-Sensitive Lipase which blocks visceral fat accumulation.
