Green tea is full of antioxidants and has thermogenic properties in it. Thermo genesis is a process that includes production of heat. It increases fat oxidation and energy consumption to help your body lose body fat at a faster rate. Green tea makes you feel full and you don’t tend to eat more than your body requires. Also EGCG present in green tea reduces body fat that your body tends to absorbs when you eat food. This not only helps in reducing body weight but also regulates the cholesterol levels in your body.

Green tea has long been linked with positive health outcomes. It is full of antioxidants that have been associated with the prevention of many ailments, including cancer. Despite these associations, there have been no evidence-based suggestions on the quantity of green tea needed to prevent cancer. There are also no specific guidelines on which types of cancer may be prevented by drinking green tea.

Extract of Guggul Herb

It is a very old herbal medicine suggested in ayurveda for treating various health ailments including weight loss. Guggul stimulates the function of thyroid and corrects the metabolic rate and this helps in losing weight easily and faster. It also helps in maintaining cholesterol levels and your mood too. As it doesn’t stimulate the central nervous system, it is 100% safe for losing weight.

The flavor and reputed health benefits of pu-erh tea also make it a great option for drinking as a digestif after a heavy meal; indeed, in China and Hong Kong, it is often consumed during and after heavy or greasy meals, like dim sum.

Some studies have shown that pu-erh may lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure and increase metabolism.1 Pu-erh is occasionally touted as a ‘diet tea,’ but like all teas, we don’t recommend consuming it as a magical weight loss tool, but rather as an enjoyable part of a healthy diet. Some people find that drinking good quality pu-erh tea can induce a state known as ‘tea drunkenness.’
