Slimming teas are usually detox teas and green teas, but they can be a variety of other herbal teas as well that have a slimming effect on the body. This slimming effect is usually a combination of quick loss of water weight, followed by fat loss. One thing to note here is that these teas can only work to their full potential when they are followed by an active lifestyle and clean eating habits. Also, most of these cleansing and slimming teas come with a regime that needs to be followed, and the tea shouldn’t be overused as it can cause hyperactivity of some organs which have unfavorable effects on the health. 

Health Benefits of Slimming Teas

Here are the top 5 health benefits that you can enjoy with the regular use of slimming teas. 

  • Weight Loss 
  • The top benefit of slimming teas is weight loss. This is the main reason why people try to incorporate these teas into their diet and daily routine. Obesity is one of the biggest problems of the modern age. This is due to an unhealthy and fattening diet, with processed and junk foods being easily available at a budget friendly price, along with a sedentary lifestyle. 

    Slimming teas helps with weight loss by boosting the natural metabolic process of the body. High basal metabolic rate leads to an increase mobilization and burning of fat. This includes the stubborn and hard to shed abdominal fat. But first, the tea has an effect on the water weight. The slimming teas flush out toxins and salt water retention, which helps with water weight, and also reduces bloating around the abdomen. This will make your stomach and abdomen appear flatter within a few days. Although this is a very impressive effect, it should be noted that it’s not fat loss and water weight can be gained back very quickly if clean eating is not followed on a regular basis. 

    Increased metabolism also gives the body much needed energy boost so that you can stay active all day and make healthier choices. There are several active ingredients in the plant based ingredients in slimming teas. Amongst these active compounds, polyphenols and catechins promote a slimming effect by increasing metabolism of fat, while enhancing the absorption of fat soluble vitamins so that the body is not malnourished. 

    The other effect of slimming teas is the boost in production of hormone that promotes the feeling of satiety. It makes you feel full for longer periods so that you eat less throughout the day. It lowers the daily calorie intake to promote caloric deficit and ultimately weight loss. 

    Polyphenols and caffeine used in slimming teas breakdown excess triglycerides in the body by activation of enzymes that target their destruction. This also helps with weight loss. Slimming teas also reduce the amount of insulin production in the body, which improves glucose tolerance. 

    The epigallacatechin gallate or EGCG found in the herbal ingredients of slimming tea also boosts metabolism. It stimulates the brain to promote the release of fat into the blood stream, so that it is not stored and used as fuel instead. This process is called ‘thermogenesis’, due to which the body uses fats instead of carbs for fuel. 

  • Detoxification 
  • Slimming teas have a detoxifying effect, which it achieves simply by giving our natural detox organs a much needed boost. The processed and junk food items are filled with unhealthy ingredients and chemicals, as well as artificial flavors and toxins that are not identified as nutrition by the body, and therefore stored in the form of stubborn fat in the body. Unlike healthy fat, this form of fat is detrimental for the health, and the amount of toxicity present in the processed food items also overwhelms the natural detox process of the body.  There are various mechanisms through which this effect is achieved. The detox organs include lungs, liver, kidneys, blood and lymphatics. By boosting the performance of these organs, slimming teas allow the body to achieve detoxification. 

    The function of liver is boosted by increasing the production of bile, and also efficiently bringing about detoxification and breakdown of fat. If the liver is overworked and overwhelmed with the amount of toxins in the diet, it can cause liver cirrhosis or failure. One thing to note here is that excess use of slimming tea can cause overproduction of bile which presents in the body as jaundice.

    Slimming teas also have a diuretic effect by boosting the kidney function. This is the main reason for the loss of water weight in the body and reduction in bloating. The diuretic effect is great for cleansing and purifying the body, but an excess of this can lead to dehydration too. So when using slimming tea, it’s best to have moderation and stick to a routine. 

  • Improved Digestion 
  • Most health problems originate from bad and poor gut health. With excessive consumption of unhealthy and fattening food, the digestion becomes sluggish and the essential vitamins and minerals are not absorbed well by the digestive tract. This not only leads to weight gain, but also malnourishment. 

    There are many ingredients in slimming tea that are good for digestion. These include lemon, ginger, anise seeds and fennel seeds among other things. Caffeine also helps in the prevention of constipation. With the help of slimming teas, you can get rid of a number of digestive issues, including painfully distended abdomen and stomach, excessive flatulence, frequent constipation and heartburn. You will note a notable difference in bloating just after a few cups of slimming tea. With a good and healthy digestion, you can lose weight at a faster pace and also allow the body to absorb essential nutrients from the food. 

    Excessive use of slimming tea can cause hypermobility of digestive tract, leading to diarrhea and dehydration. Therefore, as mentioned above, moderation is key when it comes to a slimming tea cleanse. 

  • Providing Antioxidants to the Body 
  • One of the best benefits of slimming teas is the surge of antioxidants it provides to the body. These antioxidants help the body in a number of ways. It prevents oxidative stress to the overworked cells in the body, preventing a number of problems that can arise if this damaging process goes unchecked, including tumors and cancer. 

    The antioxidants effectively eliminates free radicals from the body and prevent any damage to vital organs. It is also great for the skin and prevents the signs of aging. It keeps the body well hydrated and taut, so that the production of wrinkles, acne breakdowns, blemishes and skin tags is prevented. It also reduces inflammation and infection in the body, and brings down swelling and bloating in the body for a slimming effect. 

    The catechins present in plant based herbs are the anti-oxidants that prevent cell mutation and cause the carcinogenic body cells to deactivate. It also actively kills the existing cancer cells in the body without damaging healthy tissues. 

    One thing to note here is that slimming tea might only have a preventive effect when it comes to tumor and cancer, and doesn’t actively treat these health problems. 

  • Revitalizes and Alerts the Brain 
  • Caffeine is found in many tea leaves, and is present in safe concentrations in most of the slimming teas, except for those that are specifically made for night cleanse. Caffeine alerts and revitalizes the brain to be more active and productive throughout the day.

Staying active makes you more productive and creative at work, and also keeps your energy levels up when you come back home after a long day, so that you can give time to your family. In general, it improves the quality of life. A good mental health is very important to achieve weight loss and maintain good physical health.
