"Because life is too short to drink bad tea..."Our Tea of the Week
Most of us are interested in healthy living and are aware that green tea is good for us. However, a Chinese tea has now taken centre stage because it seems that drinking it actually helps you lose weight. The name of this fat busting hot beverage? Pu Erh (pronounced Poo er) and is available here at the Divine Cafe.
So should we believe all the fuss and hype?
Studies have shown that the tea suppresses fatty acid synthesis (FAS) and the process of fat creation in your body (called lipogenesis) is impinged by the properties in this tea. It seems to reduce your body’s ability to make fat.
The caffeine in Pu Erh triggers your body to secrete the hormones epinephrine and norepinephrine which increases the mobilisation of stored fatty acids in fat cells meaning that your body can use up stored fat more easily. There is even research to suggest that the tea can also help reduce your cholesterol levels. However, it seems that the time you drink this fat-busting beverage is also important. To assist with weight loss it suggests that best effects can be gained by drinking an hour after a meal.
Trials in China have shown that three cups a day for a month can lower blood fats by up to 30%. Then one cup per day for weight maintenance.
The good news is that you can get Pu Erh here at The Divine Cafe and if you can't visit us three times a day, one hour after meals, then take away with you some loose leaf tea and keep your regime on track.
