Like a lot of teas, Pu-Erh tea comes from the tea plant camellia sinensis. What makes Pu-Erh different from the other teas is its especially long microbial fermentation process. Yes its like fine wine! (but only a lot healthier). And like fine wine, its taste improves and becomes more smooth and complex with age. The leaves can also be steeped many times over, revealing multiple layers of taste. Fifty year-old tea? Send that.
Drinking Pu-Erh tea is a great way to lose those extra pounds. What it does is pretty amazing: Pu-Erh triggers the hormone that helps your body to utilize and burn the excess fat that is stored in your body. And it’s not just the caffeine doing this, it’s also the special compounds unique to Pu-Erh teas. We recommend sipping on plain Pu-Erh tea 1 hour after each meal for weight loss effects. Doing this will also reduce the fat intake of what you just ate!
Thanks to Pu-Erh’s natural fermentation process, this tea is also abundant in beneficial bacteria and microorganisms that can and will remove harmful toxins from your gut, thereby reducing indigestion and bloating. It will also prevent breakouts as there will be fewer impurities in your bloodstream which normally exit through your skin.
Research shows that Pu-Erh tea is excellent for your health. It is simply jammed-packed with antioxidants, vitamin B2 and vitamin E, all of which help fight free radicals that cause premature aging. Not to mention the levels of magnesium and natural phytochemicals in Pu-Erh can help to reduce stress and increase production of the sleep hormone, melatonin. And don’t we all need a good night’s sleep. Between the hours of 10pm and 3am is when your body works hard to rejuvenate and repair the skin, and it is also when your liver detoxifies itself and breaks down stored fat. Serious liver problems like fatty liver disease and cirrhosis are often linked to insomnia and interrupted sleep. Remember, a stress-free lifestyle plus a good night sleep is key to good health and flawless skin.
