Benefits of Active Ingredients
Popular in South America, yerba mate tea is chock-full of antioxidants and vitamins and can help you lose fat. It contains the fat-fighting compound mateine, which gives you a metabolism and energy boost. Known as a cravings-killer, it saves you from consuming empty calories you'd normally reach for. Additionally, yerba mate does not produce the caffeine-related crashes that some people experience with coffee and can give you 3-4 hours of very stable, clean energy.
Dao Ren Green Tea:
Green tea provides a number of potent antioxidants that can benefit your body in many ways. It's rich in a phytonutrient called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, and it has the ability to stimulate your body’s metabolism and speed up weight loss. Together with the caffeine that is found in green tea, EGCG works to stimulate the central nervous system and releases fat into the blood stream, so that the body can use the fat as fuel. This process of using fat as fuel is known as thermogenesis, and it involves the production of extra energy, the shedding of excess water and the burning of body fat. Caffeine can cause thermogenesis by itself, but it is much more effective when it is combined with EGCG and other substances in green tea. EGCG also increases the hormone CCK, which is responsible for creating the feeling of satiation, helping to curb your appetite. This is beneficial, because when we overeat, specifically, when we over consume sugar and fat, this excess is transformed into body fat storage. Green tea can counter the threat of excess triglyceride (broken down sugar and fat) because it has a high amount of polyphenols. Polyphenols function to activate a certain enzyme in the body, and this enzyme will dissolve the excess triglyceride. This means that the fat content in your body will be reduced if you are drinking green tea on a regular basis.
The Linus Pauling Institute cites a study in which 35 overweight men were given either oolong tea or a mixture of oolong tea and green tea for a period of 12 weeks. At the end of the study, the men who drank the mixture had reduced their body weight, waist circumference, body mass index and amount of subcutaneous fat significantly more than the men who drank plain oolong tea. Oolong tea boosts metabolism, helping you burn fat faster. Its unique catechin (an antioxidant) and caffeine combination ignites your body’s fat-burning furnace and raises your metabolism for up to 2 hours after drinking it. Oolong tea also contains polyphenols that help block fat-building enzymes. Studies have shown that drinking oolong tea has led to sustained weight loss and a smaller waist size. Be careful not to overload your tea with sugar, which will negate the benefits.
Ginseng can accelerate weight loss in two ways. First off, it can rev up your sluggish metabolism. With a faster metabolic rate, you can eat the same amount of food but have less excess calories to be converted into fat. Aside from that, ginseng is a fantastic energy booster that makes you feel more vigorous and helps you maintain physical stamina during a strenuous workout. Accordingly, you will be able to participate in a more active exercise routine for a longer period of time. In a study reported in Phytotherapy Research Journal, researchers investigated a red ginseng constituent, ginsenoside Rg3, focusing on its ability to inhibit differentiation of the cells that store energy as fat. The findings showed that this ginsenoside effectively inhibited this differentiation, making cells less able to complete the fat storage process!

Squash morning hunger pangs by drinking fennel tea before bed. According to Dr. Oz, fennel is known for its cleansing, clarifying flavor that helps reset taste buds and reduce cravings. It also boosts digestion, facilitating the absorption of nutrients, and reducing fat storage in the body. According to "The Encyclopedia of Medicinal Plants," the aromatic oils present in fennel may help dispel gas from a bloated digestive tract and relieve digestive pain and inflammation. According to "Diet and Nutrition" by Rudolph Ballentine, improved digestion helps you assimilate more nutrients from the food you eat. When you assimilate nutrients better, your body feels satiated after eating and you will experience fewer food cravings
Cinnamon is rich in manganese, iron, calcium and fiber. It has been used since medieval times to cure diarrhea, indigestion and bloating. In addition, it helps prevent the spread of cancer cells, the formation of stomach ulcers, and assists in curing bacterial infections. Cinnamon has a regulatory effect on blood sugar levels and simultaneously increases insulin levels in the body. It imitates the biological activity of insulin and increases the metabolism of glucose. Since high blood sugar levels can lead to increased storage of fat by the body, cinnamon helps prevent this increased storage of fat and enables you to lose weight. In addition, it influences the manner in which sugar is metabolized by the body and prevents the transformation of the metabolized sugar into fat. Cinnamon also delays the passing of food from the stomach into the intestine. Hence, you feel satisfied for a longer time and eat less. This helps you lose weight. Cinnamon also helps the body to process carbohydrates more efficiently and this assists you in losing a few pounds. Studies show that abdominal fat is more sensitive to the effects of cinnamon than fat from other parts of the body.
Ginger works as an anti-inflammatory agent blocking prostagladins – the chemical messengers that cause a slight swelling in the brain. Ginger tea reduces inflammation in about the same amount of time as it would take an aspirin to work. Drink a cup at the onset of your headache to stop pain in its tracks. This is vital in reducing stress, since stress in a huge culprit in weight gain. Previous research has shown that ginger reduces inflammation and promotes glucose sensitivity, two factors associated with healthy weight. It has even been shown to boost serotonin levels, the neurotransmitter associated with appetite control.
