Tea and weight loss

Tea & weight loss

Tea & weight lossTea is an ancient beverage with many health benefits.  Its weight reducing effects have aroused much interest recently, as well as provoking a few dubious claims.

We believe Chinese teas are effective in reducing body weight and treating obesity.  This notion is supported by both empiric traditional Chinese medicine and modern science research.

Using teas for weight management could be divided into two main categories, although the division is rather arbitrary:

  1. The conventional Chinese teas (beverages) with a natural capacity for assisting in weight loss. These teas include: green tea, Oolong/Wulong tea and Pu-erh tea.
  2. The Chinese remedy of mixed herbs and teas designed to target weight loss, such as: Natural Shape – Lotus Leaf Herbal Tea.

The following questions and answers may be of assistance in clarifying certain confusions.
