Dr. Oz has recommended various teas that along with proper diet and
excersize can help with weight loss. High tea consumption is one of the
reasons obesity rates are lower in Asian countries. Let's examine some of these teas:
Pu-Erh tea is traditionally known for being a great tea to drink for digestion, especially after a heavy meal. It also has been shown to lower Cholesterol. Dr. Oz likes this tea for it's fat shrinking ability. Unlike all other teas, Pu-Erh is fermented by naturally occuring bacteria, changing the chemical composition of the tea.
Two antioxidant compounds: theabrownin and gallic acid activate enzymes in our body responsible for fat metabolism. These antioxidants shrink fat tissue and help the body keep fat off weeks after ingestion. The caffeine in pu-erh helps speed metabolism, making the body more efficient at digesting a meal.
White tea tea is very high in anti-oxidants. Dr. Oz likes it for it's fat blockage ability, and the catechins included help burn calories.
Pu-Erh/White Tea Blends:
We have formulated special Dr. Oz inspired blends that combine the richness and smoothness of pu-erh with the delicate roundness of white tea, resulting in one of the best flavored blends we have created for iced teas and hot teas as well.
When combined, pu-erh and white tea work synergistically to enhance metabolism, reduce fat absorption, and burn existing fat reserves. Our Acai Tangerine, Lemon Ginger Cooler, and Pu-erh White Superior (organic) are the best options for weightloss benefits. We also offer two iced tea makers: a 66oz iced tea brewer, and a 34oz - 50oz hot/cold iced tea brewer for brewing Dr. Oz inspired blends, great for staying slim and hydrated during the summer months.

A relative of the blueberry, bilberry is similar in appearance. Bilberries are smaller and darker in color than blueberries. While the inner pulp of a blueberry is light green, the pulp of a bilberry is red or purple. Bilberries are rich in anthocyanins, which has a variety of health benefits, including cancer prevention, anti-aging, and anti-inflammatory properties.
According to a Japanese study, the antioxidants in bilberry may reduce blood glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity. and thus reduce cravings.
