Tea Time: Boo Tea

 


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.

I was pretty skeptical at first, but this tea works wonders. I can’t say I believe that it actually helps you lose weight, but it does help relieve any constipation,

I purchased it online from their site a few weeks ago and am now finished with my 14 day “detox”. I’d say I noticed a difference the first few days for sure (like a little too much) but then after that I guess my body got used to it… or it was all cleared out. Ha. No complaints there.

The magic ingredient is in the Bed Time Tea- Senna Leaf. That bad boy is known for its laxative effects, which explains a lot.

I considered ordering it again- but then I did some research and found that Senna leaf can actually be very addicting and harmful if taken too often. Girls, in particular, get addicted to this ingredient because of its laxative effect, which completely destroys the body’s natural ability to process and discard the food we consume.

The Day Time Tea isn’t supposed to have the laxative effect (no Senna Leaf) but it does have peppermint– which is a natural way to relieve constipation…just much more mild.

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:

Oolong Tea
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.

Yerba Mate Tea
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.

White Tea
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
For Headaches 

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.

Ginseng Tea
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.

Green Tea
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.

Nettle Tea
For Allergies

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.
Peppermint Tea
For Constipation 

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.

Valerian Root Tea
For Sleep 

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.


Safflower Tea
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 Tea
For Anxiety 

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?!

So..…Sip up J
