Belly busting blend

9th June 2015 Print

June sees the launch of an exciting new tea blend that could help you beat your belly in time for swimwear season…

Created by natural food experts, Natur Boutique, the drink combines three teas which are known to help maintain a sensible bodyweight. 

Java tea is seen as a high end tea with an exotic twist and isn’t normally associated with weight loss, but recent research has shown it can positively affect leptin levels (a hormone known to play a role in weight gain) and appears to be able to help reduce appetite and fat levels. 

Everyone knows about the potential health and weight loss benefits of green tea with sales having soared in the UK over the last few years.

Fewer people may have heard of Garcinia Cambogia, or brindal berry, however. The fruit is a tropical species that is native to Indonesia and looks like a small pumpkin. Studies have shown a natural chemical found in its rind may have an ‘anti-obesity’ effect, with research implying it has an ability to be able to reduce weight gain from a high fat diet and a recent review stating… 

‘studies have shown that the extracts as well as (-)-hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a main organic acid component of the fruit rind, exhibited anti-obesity activity including reduced food intake and body fat gain…’

The fruit and its rind can be dried and made into a tea whose flavour is similar to that of an earthy lemon tea. 

Combine the above three teas and you get a powerhouse of a blend brought together in Natur Boutique’s new ‘DIET TEA with garcinia cambogia’.

The new tea isn’t just about efficiency however and the blenders wanted to create something that was also a tasty addition to kitchen cupboards. This is why you’ll find liquorice on the tea’s ingredients list, as it adds a natural sweetness without adding calories. 

It’s also why all the ingredients in the new tea are 100% natural and there are no additives, preservatives or fillers used, which helps gives the drink a purer flavour.
