Oolong Tea – THE All-Natural Weight Management Tea
What is Oolong Tea?
Historical records indicate that Oolong tea originated around 400 years ago from China's Fujian province. The literal translation in Chinese is “black dragon” due to its rich color and strength. Oolong tea is made from the leaves from the Camellia sinensis plant, which are plucked and stored under controlled conditions allowing them to oxidize and ferment to create unique health benefits. This all-natural beverage contains free-radical quenching antioxidants, in addition to weight management properties.
Oolong Tea for Weight Management
While the ancient Chinese have believed that oolong tea assisted in weight loss for centuries, it has recently been adopted as a weight management solution in the U.S. as obesity has increasingly become an epidemic. According to the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) more than one third of U.S. Adults (35.7%) are obese. Due to its metabolism-boosting properties, oolong tea has been shown to provide excellent support for those attempting to reach and maintain an appropriate body weight.
Oolong tea contains caffeine, which can stimulate the central nervous system, increasing alertness and boosting energy levels. Caffeine is also known to increase the metabolism, which can help the body to stimulate weight loss and burn through fat. The caffeine found in tea does not have the same jittery effects felt from coffee consumption. Why? Because the tea contains L-theanine, which can help to neutralize the bad effects of caffeine without reducing its energizing or fat-burning capabilities.
Oolong also contains Epigallocatechin gallate, (EGCG) a catechin abundant in tea. This powerful antioxidant may have therapeutic applications in the treatment of many disorders. In addition, EGCG can also help the body trigger an internal thermogenesis switch, which in turn can help burn fat for energy.
