Oolong tea is a well-known tea that comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant. This traditional tea has been used for centuries for its many herbal and medicinal properties, but did you know that oolong tea contains properties that can lower lipids, help you fight obesity, and improve weight-loss?
The fundamental way that oolong tea helps with weight-loss is that it acts to accelerate your metabolism. An improved metabolism increases fat mobilization and prevents fat cell proliferation. Thereby, helping you lose weight and keep that weight off, for good.
How Oolong Tea Aids Weight Loss
- The many polyphenols (Micronutrients & Antioxidants) that are present in Oolong tea help to induce weight loss and lower body inflammation. By making your body run more efficiently you can lose weight and keep it off much easier.
- The boost in your metabolism help to reduce fat and accelerate existing fat oxidation. In addition, it can also help to regulate blood sugar levels and decreases the absorption of carbs and fats.
- Oolong tea has been shown to help reduce LDL cholesterol levels (bad cholesterol) when compared to traditional green and black teas by upregulating LDL receptors in your liver (The purpose of LDL receptors is to keep the amount of cholesterol in the blood at a normal level, by upregulating your receptors you help to reduce the amount of bad cholesterol) .
- The caffeine content (not as much as a cup of coffee) helps to increase your body’s available energy. Increased amounts of energy mean that you can burn more energy that requires calories, which in turn helps your body to burn more fat.
Bonus, Burn Fat, and Boost Immunity
This tea also is loaded with antioxidants (even more so than green tea) which helps to boost your immunity levels. In fact, Oolong tea contains more antioxidants per cup of tea than either green tea or black tea.
We recommend consuming one cup of oolong tea per day for the best effect. If you are sensitive to caffeine we recommend that you try drinking a lower amount, or decaf steeping your tea.
