How to Choose the Right Weight Loss Tea: A Tea Drinkers Guide

If you're on a journey to shed a few pounds as we start the new year, then let's dive into the world of weight loss teas, or as we like to call them, our slimming elixirs. In this guide, we'll “spill the tea” on the overall health benefits, the herbal heroes behind these magical blends, the art of sipping for weight loss, and introduce you to our handcrafted herbal weight loss teas. Overall we recommend our Ayurvedic teas are consumed as part of a balanced diet combined with regular exercise. Like everything in life, moderation and balance is the key.

What are the health benefits of drinking weight loss tea?

1 Increased metabolism:

Green tea, in particular, is believed to provide a noticeable metabolism boost due to compounds such as catechins and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). The thermogenic effect of these components, combined with caffeine, works to enhance your metabolism rate and increase calorie burning, ultimately leading to improved weight loss. Additionally, tea's capacity to regulate blood sugar levels adds to its overall metabolic advantages.

2 Weight loss support:

Let's talk about weight loss tea. While these herbal brews are often marketed as miracle solutions promising rapid weight loss in just a few weeks, the truth is a bit more nuanced. Weight loss tea is not a magic potion that will miraculously shed kilos overnight. Instead, think of it as a supportive companion in your weight loss journey.

Weight loss tea is like a sidekick for a healthy lifestyle. Drinking herbal tea while eating healthy meals and exercising can help you see better results overall. The tea doesn't make you lose weight on its own, but it can help your body burn calories quicker over time, more as a gradual process and in conjunction with overall lifestyle changes you make.

Some ingredients, like Garcinia, make you feel less hungry which makes it easier to control your appetite. As a beverage supplement, it gives you a sense of fullness and keeps you well-hydrated, reducing the likelihood of repetitive snacking.

Weight loss teas also contain antioxidants from ingredients like ginger and peppermint. Those fight off the toxins in your body. Though they don't directly make you lose weight, they just keep you healthy during your weight loss journey.

Other herbs like fennel seed and fenugreek help your body absorb nutrients and stay healthy overall. It's like putting together pieces of a puzzle instead of a super quick fix.

3 Low calorie drink and appetite suppressant:

Teas are naturally low in calories as they involve steeping leaves or herbs in hot water, extracting flavours without adding substantial caloric content. The simplicity of the brewing process, (without added sugars or milk), contributes to their low-calorie nature. Whether it's traditional teas like green or black tea or herbal infusions such as peppermint or chamomile, the base of these beverages remains calorie-free. To fully enjoy its low-calorie benefits, make sure you enjoy it without additional caloric enhancements like sweeteners or milks, even dairy free milks have some calorie content.

3. How to Drink Tea for Weight Loss?

1. Moderate your tea consumption:

In the world of weight loss tea, less is more. Limit your sipping sessions to 2 cups a day. We're all about quality over quantity.

2. Mind the gap of tea and mealtime:

Timing is everything. To optimise your weight loss efforts, give at least 30 minutes between your tea and meal. Let your body absorb the goodness without any interference or let’s say snacking.

3. No tea before bed:

Drinking tea close to bedtime is definitely not recommended. You need to let your body rest by avoiding tea a few hours before you sleep.

4. Sweeten with caution:

While sugar may be tempting with its sweet taste, it's not a suitable addition to your weight loss journey. Steer clear of adding sugar to your tea and consider opting for natural sweeteners like honey instead. Small adjustments can yield significant results in achieving your weight loss goals.
