Pu-erh Tea Health Benefits

Pu-erh tea is made from the leaves and stems of the Camellia sinensis plant. Chinese people have been drinking pu-erh tea for almost 2,000 years. For centuries it has been considered to be a medicinal tea.

 

The Chinese believe that Pu-erh tea has greater health benefits than other teas.

 

Pu-erh tea goes through a special fermentation process that makes it very beneficial to the digestive system or Spleen as is described in Chinese Medicine.

 

Pu-erh tea that is aged for a longer period of time is supposed to taste better.

 

However, it can also smell stuffy or taste old because mould and bacteria will sometimes attack the tea during the long aging process.

 

Drinking Pu-erh tea at the correct times will help you shed unwanted pounds by helping your body to metabolize fat. If you drink Pu-erh at the wrong times, it is said that it will actually cause you to gain weight instead.

 

The best time to drink a cup of Pu-erh tea for weight loss goals is one hour after a meal, so that the Pu-erh tea can remove excess grease and help your body eliminate unwanted and leftover, hard-to-digest fats.

 

As with any weight loss program, the best way to see results in losing weight using Pu-erh tea is to combine your Pu-erh tea with a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.

 

When you begin drinking Pu-erh tea for weight loss, you may feel hunger pangs which you should ease with fresh fruits, salads or raw vegetables.

 

After your stomach begins to get used to your diet you will not feel the hunger pangs.

 

Pu’erh comes in an enormous variety, not just dark or green, but in many types of both categories.

 

In recent years, studies investigating health benefit effects of Pu-erh tea have shown effects on antioxidant, anticancer, lowering cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar, and improving bacterial flora in the intestines.
