Hey y’all. Sorry I have been a little MIA lately, life has been a little hectic. I am going to do my best to start posting regularly again though.
For me, I always like when bloggers post “reviews”on products that they have tried out (when they aren’t being paid to do so). So I myself am I going to do a little review on one of the most trending teas on Instagram-Boo Tea.
Soooo, I’d definitely recommend this tea for special occasions when you’re looking to feel extra light and not at all bloated, but don’t fall in to a habit of drinking it too often or say buh-bye to going potty on your own. Ha.
So if you’re looking for some new Tea’s to try out, here are some key factors to consider:
For Weight Loss
Oolong tea boosts metabolism, helping you burn fat faster. Its unique catechin (an antioxidant) and caffeine combination ignites your body’s fat-burning furnace and raises your metabolism for up to 2 hoursafter drinking it. Oolong tea also contains polyphenols that help block fat-building enzymes. Studies have shown that drinking oolong tea has led to sustained weight loss and a smaller waist size. Be careful not to overload your tea with sugar, which will negate the benefits.
For Weight Loss
Yerba mate tea is chockfull of antioxidants and vitamins and can help you lose fat. It contains the fat-fighting compound mateine, which gives you a metabolism and energy boost. Known as a cravings-killer, it saves you from consuming empty calories you’d normally reach for. Additionally, yerba mate does not produce the caffeine-related crashes that some people experience with coffee and can give you 3-4 hours of very stable, clean energy.
For Weight Loss
White tea is less processed than other forms of tea, therefore the polyphenols, a type of antioxidant, are extra potent. White tea contains ECGC, an antioxidant that prevents new fat cells from forming and fights signs of aging, like wrinkles. Research indicates that these benefits may protect against colon cancer, among other cancers. White tea’s flavor ranges from delicate to bold.Ginger Tea
Ginger works as an anti-inflammatory agent blocking prostagladins – the chemical messengers that cause a slight swelling in the brain. Ginger tea reduces inflammation in about the same amount of time as it would take an aspirin to work. Drink a cup at the onset of your headache to stop pain in its tracks.
For a Libido Boost
This tea boosts sexual arousal and helps combat erectile dysfunction. Ginseng contains compounds called ginsenosides that affect gonadal tissue, increasing sperm count as well heightening sexual satisfaction for both women and men.
For Overall Health
This tea has many properties that can help keep you in tip-top health. It contains a phytonutrient called EGCG that increases the hormone CCK, which is responsible for creating the feeling of satiation. Green tea’s high EGCG content also makes it an effective cancer fighter. Studies show that drinking green tea may potentially prevent the onset or slow the progression of dementia.
This tea has antihistamine properties and can prevent hay fever or allergy attacks from happening in the first place. It also relieves annoying allergy symptoms like stuffy nose, sneezing and itchy eyes. Nettle tea is dense, so brew it for 15-20 minutes. Make a larger pot during allergy season and keep in the fridge. Add lime to freshen taste.
Sip on this delicious yet potent tea to relieve constipation. Whenever you experience an uncomfortable bout of constipation, peppermint tea is sure to improve motility in the GI tract and get you going.
If you’re having trouble sleeping, consider valerian tea. The natural compounds in valerian root have been used as a sedative and may help reduce the amount of time it takes for you to fall asleep. Try drinking valerian root tea a couple of hours before bedtime as a safer alternative to habit-forming sleep aids.
For Heart Health
Tea made out of this powerful flower can boost your heart health! The antioxidants in safflower help prevent heart disease by decreasing inflammation in your arteries, keeping them flexible and less likely to clog. Get the benefits by sipping on a cup of safflower tea once a day.
Passionflower has the flavone chrysin, which has anti-anxiety benefits. It works best for people with anxiety who also experience a lot of circular thinking or obsessive thoughts. Try a cup of passionflower tea before bed to calm your mind.
Isn’t it amazing all the things little leaves can cure?!
