Isn’t that a great deal? Satisfying sips of your beloved beverage get an extra few inches off of your waistline. Keep reading till the end as we dive in and find out the best tea for weight loss.
Made from the leaves and leaf buds of Camellia sinensis, almost all teas aiding weight loss are prepared without milk. However, one must keep in mind that other lifestyle choices (eating healthy and exercising) are also important. Simply consuming tea will not lead to the desired result.
Let’s get brewing!
Starting with Ashwagandha, it is a very important herb in the age-old practises of Ayurveda. This tea can be made without much effort by adding Ashwagandha leaves or powder to water and bringing it to a boil. Remember to strain it before consuming it.
This herb is no less than a superfood! Great flavour and abundant benefits make this an amazing choice. It helps reduce stress, which can directly be linked to weight loss, as stress leads to increased levels of inflammation in our bodies. Inflammation can be tied to obesity, as well as major ailments such as diabetes, cancer, and heart-related illnesses.
Arguably the second-most popular variety of tea for Weight loss, green tea plays a great role in weight reduction. Many conversations around tea for weight loss start with green tea, and for good reason, as this variety has a lot of research backing up its potential benefits. Green tea coupled with exercising works wonders for your weight loss plans.
Now the question arises: how do you prepare green tea? Boil a cup of water and add Samaara Green Tea, stir well, and enjoy it warm. There are numerous benefits to green tea, primarily aiding weight loss and boosting immunity. Other benefits include preventing diabetes, lowering blood pressure, and reducing cholesterol levels. Green tea can be incorporated into your diet to detoxify your system. It is popular for this specific purpose as it does not require any modification to one’s diet or lifestyle.
Another important question emerges and that is, “When is the right time to drink green tea?” The best times are:
- 30 minutes before exercising, as this increases the rate at which you burn fat while working out.
- It boosts metabolism and helps weight loss when consumed 45 minutes to 1 hour after your meals.
Mint is a tremendously popular herb that is used in countless forms, such as in teas, condiments, and salads, for its refreshing flavour. You really can’t go wrong with adding mint to your diet.
This herbal concoction can be easily prepared by boiling water in a utensil, adding mint leaves, and letting it cool off for a while. Due to its captivating aroma and refreshing taste, Samaara Green Tea with Mint Flavour will be a suitable option for you.
While certain aromas and scents can trigger hunger, mint helps in suppressing it. Other benefits of drinking mint tea include boosting energy levels by alleviating fatigue, relieving headaches and improving digestion.
Tea leaves that undergo oxidation or fermentation processes essentially are called black tea leaves. This process intensifies the flavour, giving it a bold and kadak flavour, while also increasing the caffeine content.
Black tea for weight loss can be prepared in a similar process as the other teas listed above, by boiling water and adding Samaara black tea (available in various packaging options). Apart from its incredible taste, the anti-oxidising properties of black tea offer lots of benefits, such as lowering the risk of getting cancer, reducing blood pressure, and protecting against diabetes. However, if consumed with milk, the anti-oxidising properties are nullified and could lead to weight gain, a U-turn in your plans to lose weight!
Increased caffeine content gives you an extra boost of energy, which in turn means you can burn more calories. However, the ill effects of excess caffeine consumption must be kept in mind.
THE BOTTOM LINE
