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 hours
after 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
