BENEFITS OF GREEN TEA:
Green tea assists in a healthy gut, Negative changes in the gut micro-biome have been previously linked to obesity, and green tea has been shown to promote healthy bacteria. Catechins, anti-inflammatory polyphenols found in green tea, have been linked to anti-cancer activity and lower risk of heart and liver disease.
Green tea leaves contain small amounts of naturally occurring caffeine and an amino acid known as L-theanine. Caffeine helps to boost energy, which can help you power through an intense workout. L-theanine slows the release of caffeine, resulting in a smoother energy boost. That means you don't experience the highs and lows associated with caffeine from a cup of coffee. Green tea leaves are also packed with antioxidants known as polyphenols and catechins. The main catechin is called EGCG or epigallocatechin gallate and it is known to increase fat oxidation to help shed body and belly fat. A study published in Advances in Nutrition, found that EGCG signals the body to burn fat cells.
Essentially, drinking green tea helps to signal the body that fat no longer needs to be stored and should be consumed for energy. This herbal tea blend may also assist the liver to convert body fat into energy more efficiently. Researchers found that people who drank tea and exercised lost an average of 1,2kg more than people who simply exercised.
BENEFITS OF GINGER:
Ginger is a well-known appetite suppressant that can help you feel full between meals. Ginger can also help to control blood sugar and prevent overeating. Ginger helps to reduce cortisol and prevents stress-induced eating.
BENEFITS OF ROSEHIP SEED AND FRUIT BLEND:
Drinking rosehip tea may help manage weight and accelerate weight loss. A study published by Dove press examined the effects of rosehip tea on pre-obese individuals. The study was a randomized, double-blind clinical trial. Thirty-two pre-obese participants were given rosehip extract or a placebo for 12 weeks. The participants that took rosehip had significantly lower abdominal visceral fat than those that took the placebo. Rosehip tea is an herbal tea made from the fruit of the rose plant. It can be harvested from cultivated roses and wild rose bushes. Rosehip tea is naturally caffeine-free. It can be brewed using fresh or dried rose hips. Rosehip tea contains a high amount of vitamins that help fend off the common cold and flu. This tea contains particularly large amounts of vitamin C and vitamin A, which support the immune system. The vitamin C is also responsible for the tangy, sweet flavour of this herbal remedy. Rosehip tea, like green tea, also contains high amounts of antioxidants and flavonoids that support immune health. Theses antioxidants fight off free radicals that can cause oxidative stress and a host of health problems. This tea also contains vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that protects against premature aging and other degenerative diseases.
