9 Teas To Aid In Weightloss

August 11, 2014 3 min read

Notice that I say “aid” in weight loss. Any tea that purports to be a magic solution is probably A) too good to be true, or B) just a laxative. This being said, I recently did a really great teatoxand thought it would be cool to look into some other teas that are purported to aid in weight loss.
  1. Pu-erh tea – sure, let’s just start with the hardest to pronounce first. I’ve been aware of this kind of tea for years, and have yet to say it correctly (I think it’s like drawing out the word “poor”, but adding stress before the r… or something). This tea has enzyme-activating ingredients that help shrink fat tissue, also possibly reduces cholesterol, although more studies need to be done.

Oolong tea – this is my sister’s favourite kind of tea, it’s from the same family of tea leaves as black and green teas, but it’s processed differently. Oolong has long been found to improve skin, strengthen bones, alleviate stress, and the polyphenol compound in the tea enables the body to burn more fat. 4. Hibiscus tea – this one I’m not a huge fan of, as I find it kind of perfume-y, BUT it contains the enzyme phaseolamin, which breaks down complex carbs, reduces amylase production(the enzyme that turns starch to sugar), and reduce carb absorption. teashibiscus 5. Green tea – the go-to tea for general health and wellness, the EGCG in green tea also promotes fat burning for weight loss. And if you need to clean out your system, while getting a huge energy boost, then hellooooo matcha. It’s a finely powdered green tea that is basically made of magic. 6. Rose tea – this one I have not tried, it’s a caffeine-free herbal tea full of antioxidants and vitamins to promote healthy digestion. 7. Yerba Mate – I have a lot of chocolate flavoured mate teas, which I drink instead of coffee sometimes because it gives a strong energy boost, due to the stimulant called mateine, similar to caffeine. It’s also been said to reduce lung inflammation, increase oxygen supply to your heart, lower cholesterol, alleviate headaches, and promote weight loss. 8. Peppermint tea – one of my favourite teas, especially before bedtime, peppermint tea helps control appetite and cravings, prevents over-eating, and relives indigestion. Not mentioned in the article, but something I find to be true, peppermint also alleviates headaches and promotes relaxation. 9. Bilberry tea – I had never heard of this kind of tea, but with its tart flavour, antioxidents and flavonoids, craving-curbing and appetite surpressing properties, I will probably check this tea out. In warning, you should drink less than 2 cups per day to avoid any adverse side effects the tea may have on you. teasbilberry I am such a tea fanatic, I have an entire trestle devoted solely to tea and it’s three shelves are overflowing with about 100 different varities of tea, and several tea steepers and teapots. If a peppermint tea can cure me of a headache (surprisingly better than if I take Tylenol or Advil), then I’m not surprised that it can also help me shed a few pounds.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
