She enters the Chiya Leaf boutique, her eyes moving left to the right, scanning the best tea packets displayed on the shelves and picking up the slimming tea packet. She comes to the counter while holding the pouch in her hand and asks, ‘Does this tea really helps in reducing weight?’ It was visible in her hopeful eyes that she was expecting a ‘yes,’ and the ‘yes’ came followed by a ‘but.’ So, tea aids weight loss, but…..
In our previous blog, we have covered that tea doesn’t help in reducing weight directly. It only helps in boosting metabolism. However, this benefit is not limited to just Camellia sinensis leaves. Even teas not containing Camellia sinensis leaves, called herbal tea, also aid so-called weight reduction.
Slimming tea is one such herbal tea, also called a tisane. It effectively produces minor weight loss in the long term by helping you control hunger and reboot your metabolism to burn calories quickly. Chiya Leaf’s slimming tea, one of the best tea for health and fitness conscious, consist of 9 herbs – Indian pennywort (Brahmi), Asparagus racemosus (shatavari), black pepper, rose, lemongrass, lemon peel, echinacea, cardamom, and liquorice (mulethi).
Each of these natural herbs aids your weight loss journey. For example, shatavari keeps your hunger pangs in check. Shatavari is a species of asparagus that helps the body shed excess weight faster by satiating the craving and preventing overeating. Whereas lemongrass kick-starts your metabolism. Other ingredients, such as rose, help by boosting digestion. Black pepper, loaded with Vitamins A, C, and K, healthy fatty acids, not only adds discreet spiciness to the tea but also helps you shed weight as it is a natural metabolic booster. While talking about weight loss and digestion, how can we forget lemon, one of the most effective remedies to get rid of belly fat? In addition to this, this herbal tea also has brahmi, echinacea, cardamom and mulethi.
Despite having so many ingredients that help in weight loss, slimming tea is not a cure-all. Even the best tea in India can’t do that! You can’t simply drink tea and expect the kilos to melt off. You have to keep a tab on your diet and put in the hard work at the fitness centre for the ultimate results.
