3 Teas That Help You Lose Weight
Although the billion-dollar weight loss industry would like you to believe that there is a magic bullet to weight loss, such as melting fat simply by drinking a cup of tea daily, I don’t believe that.
What I do believe, is that certain herbs consumed by drinking tea can enhance weight loss when it’s incorporated in a lifestyle that supports that goal.If you’re already leading a feel-good lifestyle and you want to boost your weight loss, these teas are an easy way to boost your metabolism and reduce inflammation as well as hormones that make you hold on to fat.
1. Pau D’Arco
Pau d’arco tea is a powerful detoxifier.
It stimulates the liver to help the body get rid of toxins and excess fat.
It also contains active chemicals that kill bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites. This is important because when the body is imbalanced and the ratio of good bacteria vs bad bacteria is off, candida can occur.
Candida can limit your ability to lose weight because it makes you crave sugar, it produces toxins in your body, it makes you bloated and it contributes to inflammation. Inflammation, amongst other things, makes you retain fluid and it makes you hold onto excess weight.
By reducing toxins and harmful bacteria in the body, pau d’arco tea reduces inflammation.
Not only is this important to reduce your risk of developing chronic disease, reducing inflammation is key to weight loss.
*Do not consume if you are pregnant or breast feeding*
Matcha is a finely ground and concentrated green tea that has been used in Japanese tea ceremonies for hundreds of years.
It’s been proven to boost metabolism and help with weight loss due to catechins, a type of antioxidant.
On top of that, matcha is high in chlorophyll. Chlorophyll helps your body detoxify by clearing your body from toxins, chemicals and heavy metals.
When you reduce your toxic load, you help your body naturally lose weight.
3. Tulsi/Holy Basil Tea
Tulsi tea is an amazing adaptogen. It helps you adapt to stress and to become more resilient.
This piece is sooo important for weight loss. When you feel stressed, your body produces cortisol. When you have elevated cortisol on a daily basis – this actually tells your body to store fat around your belly.
Tulsi tea helps your body lower elevated cortisol levels and normalize blood sugar. A beautiful combination to help you ditch extra pounds.
It tastes great too!
