Pu-erh Tea Weight Loss

More and more people are focus on the fact that tea can help weight loss as it is a healthy way.Then if all the teas can have this effect and which kind of tea is the most effective one to help lose weight?This article will share with you which kind of tea and how to correctly drink tea can help you to lose weight by the best and healthy way.

All kinds of tea can help lose fat to a certain extent.Among all kinds of teas, Pu-erh Tea is commonly considered as the most effective one, followed by Green Tea.

The facts that Pu-erh Tea can do a help for weight loss:

1 It has a close relation with the metabolism of fat: Because Pu-erh Tea has a particular fermentation process which result in its containing of lipolytic enzyme that is capable of removing a substantial amount of fatty matter.So Pu-erh Tea can refrain from heavy weight, reduce cholesterol and triglyceride in the blood.

2 The synthetic action from many effective constituents such as polyphenols, chlorophyll, vitamin C and so on.(The effective constituents from the tea trees in Yunnan area are normally as polyphenols 30%~34%, chlorophyll 18%~24%)They can help fatty substance decomposition and digestion.

Pu-erh weight loss witness:

Medical experiments proved that continuous constant of drinking tea can reduce blood lipids to 30% extent (of course depending on the individual and different). Craig Tighe Murdoch Seoul hospital make an experiment to 20 patients with excessive blood fat to drink three cups of Yunnan Puerh tuocha.After one month, they found their blood lipids reduced 25%.But in another hosital’s experiment by drinking other kinds of teas have no change or little reduce of the blood lipids.

Best way to drink Pu-erh to meet its weight loss aid:

1. Normally it is not recommend to drink tea on an empty stomach because it has a bad effect on stomach and will make you feeble.But for Ripe Pu-erh tea, as it is a kind of complete fermentation tea so it has little effect to stomach.So for people who want more effective to lose weight you can drink a cup of light Pu-erh tea before breakfast (of course this is not good for people who is weak in stomach)

2. Drink Puerh tea half or one hour after meal, by this way it will stimulate bowel and stomach movements in order to help indigestion of the high energy and fatty food.In morning and afternoon you can drink heavy Puerh but at night it is better to use less tea.

3. For people who drink Pu-erh tea for the first time, they may not be used to its taste.For this situation, you can add some honey, rose petal, chrysanthemum, osmanthus or some fruit to make a sweeter taste.But I also recommend if you are accustomed to its taste, it is better to have its original mellow earthy taster.

4. Have a good diet habit, do not eat too much.Dinking Pu-erh Tea anytime instead of coffee and water.And also you need do exercise as often as you can.

Note: Pu-erh can be classified to Raw Puerh tea and Ripe Puerh tea.Raw Puerh tea is not suitable for people whose stomach is weak.Only Ripe Puerh tea can nourish the stomach.

Of course, drinking tea may not have the weight loss effect in a short time as weight-loss pills do.As we all know, weight-loss pills may make you loss fat in a shot time but you may go back on heavy weight in near future.But tea is a healthy and natural way to help you loss weight and keep your figure.You need to keep a good habit of drinking Pu-erh tea and keep in a persistent way.In western country, many people may not like the Pu-erh taste at the first time when they drink it.But you will find it’s unique charm after you keep drinking it for several times.After you adapt its taste and love it, you will lose your weight and keep a good figure while you enjoying this perfect tea.

      I have never seen Pu-erh tea at the grocery store or health food store where I live. Perhaps, I would be able to order it online. Thank you for your wonderful tip on how to lose weight with Pu-erh tea.

      So if you want to keep drinking tea, then I suggest you can drink pu’erh ripened tea. Compare with green tea, pu’erh tea undergoes a high fermentation process, therefore, it will reduce the stomach irritation. Also please do not drink strong tea while diagnosed with acid reflux, or drink tea with empty stomach, you can drink it one hour after a meal.

      On other hand, you can see the doctor to help you with this, hope all is well with your stomach.

      I have not tried this one. I was recently diagnosed with acid reflux and was told not to drink tea because of the hyper acidity. Any suggestions?
