Wild Ancient Tea naturally has high amounts of health-promoting substances called flavonoids. These are thought to bring down inflammation and protect against conditions like heart disease and diabetes.
Drinking tea for weight loss
Drinking tea on a regular basis is safe to drink as long as the tea is of a good quality, without additives and contaminants. Apart from a number of health benefits, including protection from cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, a few cups of quality tea daily might even give you a slight push toward your weight-loss goals for those who have weight issues. Just don't expect miracles to come in a single teacup as you need to take a holistic approach.
Research suggests tea can help you lose a small amount of weight - especially when paired with a sensible diet and exercise. Consider if you were to swap your morning cappuccino for a cup of tea, you'll trim almost 260 calories from your total daily intake.
Teas have a type of flavonoid called catechins that may boost metabolism and help your body break down fats more quickly. So long as you don’t have any negative reaction to the caffeine in many teas, it can increases your energy use, causing your body to burn more calories. These two compounds probably work best together for weight loss. Once you've lost weight, tea could help you keep it off by preventing the metabolism slowdown which is common after weight loss.
All tea types come from Camellia Sinensis tea plant. But the leaves are processed in different ways and each tea is a little different.
Benefits of Black Tea and Pu-erh Tea
Black tea is commonly consumed around the world and is the type of tea that's often used to make iced tea. It’s processed and therefore oxidised -- a process that allows it to change chemically and often increases its caffeine content. The tea has a strong, rich flavour. Pu-erh tea is also from the black tea family and has additionally undergone a fermentation process. Polyphenols in black tea assists in blocking fat from being absorbed in the intestines, reducing visceral fat and the absorption of Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which is commonly known as bad cholesterol.
Pu-erh tea has increased Polyphenols as a result of fermentation. Pu-erh tea has an added benefit from its fermentation process, which is its probiotic content. This assists in the digestive processes within the gut which apart from the obvious health benefit of better nutrient absorption and reduced inflammation from toxins, allows for a far better absorption of the Polyphenols. Drinking black tea the English way, with milk, can reverse its bad-fat-blocking abilities.
