Benefits of Garcina Cambogia!



Only recently, Garcinia Cambogia has drawn the attention of the media and people because of its newly discovered weight loss benefits. Thanks to an endorsement from several nutrition experts, the herbal supplement is making waves in the diet industry. The supplement is hailed as “a revolutionary fat buster” and “a breakthrough in natural weight loss.


Garcinia cambogia is one of the hottest weight loss products today and it is commonly found in weight loss tea. It is a small, sour fruit of a tropical tree that is cultivated for culinary purposes in Indonesia, South Asia, India and Africa. The extract is used for various treatments in Ayurvedic medicine including weight loss, stomach ulcers and digestive problems.


Hydroxycitric acid (HCA), a citric acid byproduct, is the main active ingredient in Garcinia cambogia extract. HCA blocks fat by inhibiting the efforts of citrate lyase, an important metabolic enzyme. This is one of the reasons that Garcinia is so successful as a weight loss supplement and it is commonly used in many weight loss tea. What makes Garcinia Cambogia stand out from hundreds of other natural weight loss boosters is its dual action to both help control the appetite and prevent fat from being formed and stored in the body. It is such a power fruit that has to be included in our weight loss tea blends. 


What the body cannot use for energy, the body stores as fat. Most people store this fat in the hips, thighs, waist and buttocks. By interrupting the metabolic process, hydroxycitric acid slows the conversion of carbohydrates into fats and halts fat storage. This is one of the chief benefits of Garcinia cambogia extract. Other side benefits of taking Garcinia include: improving fat metabolizing, encouraging the development of lean muscle mass rather than new fat cell storages, and minimizing stress-triggered cravings.


A second important aspect of hydroxycitric acid is its ability to suppress the appetite by increasing serotonin levels in the body. Elevated levels of serotonin promote weight loss by curbing the appetite and sugar cravings. This hunger-suppressing quality is another important way that Garcinia cambogia supports weight loss. One of the greatest benefits of Garcinia cambogia is the ability to create a more efficient metabolism.


Finally, Garcinia cambogia not only provides weight loss but also improves immune system functioning. Studies indicate that the supplement can improve the body’s response to illness, infections and disease. This is mainly due to the high concentration of vitamin C in Garcinia cambogia extract. The herbal supplement may also shorten the duration of sickness like the flu and common cold. There are already millions of people who are seeing the benefits of this product in regards to health and help with weight loss once for all.

Brewing tips for different types of tea


There are so many types of teas that some of the names you probably never heard of. But don’t get confused as there are only four main categories that you are probably already familiar with. 



Brewing method for green tea: green tea needs to be brewed with 80 ~ 85 water and drink it straight after. It is a type of unfermented tea and the more common ones are West Lake Longjing and Biluochun. This type of teas are more delicate and are not suitable to be brewed with just boiled water. The proportion of tea and water should be about 1:50 and brew time can be around 3 to 5 minutes. If the brewing temperature is too high or too long, polyphenols in the tea may be more likely to be destroyed. The tea not only will turn yellow but also losing its aroma. Green tea is preferably brewed with ceramic pot or glass. With green tea, when you brew it, you don’t usually need to cover with a lid, otherwise the tea may turn to yellowish color.


Brewing method for red tea: red tea needs to be brewed with hot boiling water. It is fully fermented tea. The brewing method is a bit different from green tea because high temperature water can help to bring out the beneficial ingredients in the tea. The water amount and the brewing time to be used can be the same as with green tea and it can be brewed for 1-2 times. It is the best brewed by a glass teapot, so you can actually see it to expand in the water. Red tea needs to be brewed with the lid closed, so the beautiful taste can be more intense.


How to brew Oolong tea: Oolong tea has great effect on weight loss, especially the Black Oolong which is claimed to have even much more stronger slimming effect. Oolong tea needs to be brewed with 100 boiling water and can be brew for several times. It is semi-fermented tea and needs to be brewed with lid on. You can be a bit generous with the tea in relation to the amount to be put in. With most types of tea leaves, it is the best to rinse the tea first by pouring in the boiling water and let is sit for 5 seconds and pour the water out. Then pour hot water in again and let it brew for 3-5 minutes before drinking it.  


Brewing method for black tea: Rinse black tea with boiling water first as you would do with the Oolong tea. Black tea is fermented tea and it will get aging naturally while in storage over time, which is better. Puer tea is a typical example of black tea. Rinse the tea as usual. If you need detailed information about how to rinse tea, please refer to our Brewing instructions under FAQs on our website. Black tea needs to be brewed with boiling water with the lid on. By doing so, it will not only filter out impurities of the tea and brings out more intense aroma.
