25 Ways to Lose Weight with Tea

Okuma Nutritionals
By Okuma Nutritionals - August 21, 2017

Next to water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world... but you probably knew that!

But what you may not have known is that tea is used medicinally in many countries for a range of cures; from lowering cholesterol to weight loss.

In this book, we will be demonstrating the effects of one very special, rare Oolong Tea that has been the subject in dozens of clinical trials and long-term studies.

Recently, one Japanese study even found that drinking this very special Oolong tea helps revitalize your internal organs while reducing body fat.

We call this tea WuLong Slimming Tea or “SlimTea”.

Scientists attribute our Tea to such weight loss power in part due to the level of antioxidants in the tea.

In fact, many of the amazing health benefits you’ll read in this book are attributable precisely to the enormously high, very special types of antioxidants found in SlimTea.

Introduction

What are free radicals?

Every day the effects of pollution in air and water, stress, hormones, UV rays, and other elements actually damage our cells.

These pollutants impact our cells’ ability to work properly.

When this happens, cells lose an electron and become free radicals.

Free radicals are substances we’re exposed to that become oxidized in the body.

They make you age more quickly inside and out.

In fact, things like smoking, stress, chemicals in processed foods, and UV rays all expose us to free radicals.

ANTIOXIDANTS help you eradicate all the free radicals you’re exposed to daily.

Countless studies conducted in universities and labs worldwide show the health benefits of consuming antioxidants- ESPECIALLY from tea!

Specifically, you want to look for tea containing high levels of polyphenols and EGCG

(Epigallocatechin Gallate).

(These are special catechin compounds found in WuLong and SlimTea!)

Why Grocery Store Teas DON’T Help You Lose Weight...

When you buy grocery store teas, you’re likely to get a lot of toxic “fillers”...including:

  • Artificial Flavors
  • Un-”Natural” Flavors
  • Preservatives
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Fillers
  • Deceptive Packaging
  • GMO’s
  • TOO Much Flouride

This is NOT the case with our Tea.

Okuma's Oolong tea is grown high in the mountains of the Fujian Province of China; qualified by some of the world’s master tea connoisseurs.

And it works.

It works so well because it’s bursting with “catechins” and “polyphenols” — naturally occurring antioxidants that help to boost metabolism and burn fat.

This means that every time you drink a cup of SlimTea, you’re naturally boosting your metabolism and burning more fat!

(Many customers report how much weight they’ve lost in INCHES!)

Plus, studies show that both WuLong and SlimTea helps to regulate insulin spikes, which eliminates unhealthy cravings (a big cause of weight gain).

dr-oz-promoting-oolong-tea.jpgThis is why we recommend you drink at least 2 cups of WuLong or SlimTea every day.  And don't take our word for it.  Even Dr Oz recommends drinking 2 cups of Oolong tea every day. 

It will boost your metabolism, burn fat, and help you avoid between-meal snacking without feeling deprived or hungry.

Imagine… you could be getting rid of all your unwanted fat and feeling good the whole time!!

I want you to experience the amazing results of WuLong or SlimTea for yourself!

There are 1000’s of diet teas out there...

But SlimTea is one of the world’s
FIRST ORGANIC WEIGHT LOSS TEAS that has
no fillers, chemicals, or preservatives.

It’s 100% pure weight loss Oolong.

The Antioxidants Found In SlimTea...

1. Catechins

They comprise 25% of the compounds that makes up a tea leaf.

Recent research indicates that including tea antioxidants such as catechins in your diet, may lead to a decrease in body weight and a reduction of certain health issues.

Catechins work with other naturally occurring chemicals in the body to intensify levels of fat oxidation, or thermogenesis, the process by which heat is created in the body by burning fat, which links weight loss and tea antioxidants together.

2. Polyphenols

According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition [AJCN], polyphenols strongly support “the prevention of degenerative diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases and cancers.

The report goes on, “Significant progress has been made in the field of cardiovascular diseases, and today it is well established that some polyphenols, administered as supplements or with food, do improve health status, as indicated by several biomarkers closely associated with cardiovascular risk.”

Polyphenols

A large body of scientific studies demonstrate that drinking tea can have an anti-aging effect that also supports your brain and bone health. Tea boosts your metabolism and energy expenditures and helps your body flush out toxins — which, in turn, helps your body’s systems fight cancer and disease while preventing diabetes and promoting (as the AJCN says) heart health.

Drinking tea also promotes oral health, lowers cholesterol, and (most importantly, for our purposes) helps you to lose weight.

Polyphenols

Groundbreaking Medical Experiment Shows How SlimTea Sheds Fat...

This brings us back to one special Japanese oolong experiment, which was conducted by a Doctor Masatoshi Nakano.

This experiment showed us that Oolong (SlimTea is 100% the world’s BEST Oolong!) helped to reduce body fat in just 30 days.

Many subjects saw a reduction in waist and reduction in the size of their upper arms.

According to Nakano, oolong tea helps the body FIGHT FAT MORE efficiently than other teas, including green tea and black tea.

Plus, it helps reduce the buildup of body fat.

 

 

Oolong tea has the most concentrated, highest level of polyphenols
in comparison with green tea or black tea; and also has the highest level of
polyphenols in comparison with other brands of Oolong tea.”

WuLong and SlimTea Suppress Appetite?

In a study at the University of Chicago, animals tested were given polyphenols. As a result, they consumed 50% to 60% less food than those who drank water.

Other studies on the effects of polyphenols have focused on the following health issues and illnesses:

  • Certain types of cancers
  • Lowering plasma glucose in type 2 diabetic patients
  • Lowering LDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease
  • Reducing bacteria that causes gum disease
  • Clearer skin
  • Hair loss prevention

EGCG

In a study “Oolong Tea Increases Metabolic Rate and Fat Oxidation in Men” by the University of Tokushima, subjects who consumed 244 mg of EGCG inOolong tea experienced an increase in fat oxidation, which presented the potential for helping an individual to maintain a lower body fat content.

What's more, another study showed that rats consuming EGCG in their diet ate 60% LESS.

Cancer rates among Oolong tea drinkers is much lower, and studies show that EGCG may be the cause.

Studies also show that Breast cancer cells may be stopped by EGCG. Another Japanese study of 472 women with breast cancer suggests that EGCG may decrease the severity and recurrence of Stage 1, 2, and 3 breast cancers when 5 cups of EGCG rich green tea was drunk daily.

Other studies indicate that EGCG may be a sort of ‘fountain of youth’ for skin cells, with doctors linking it to healing of rosacea, psoriasis, and even wrinkles!

What’s more, EGCG may help regulate glucose in your body, as well as help block the fattening effects of carbs in your body. This is one of a plethora of ways that SlimTea helps you lose weight and oxidize fat.

It even carries twice the antioxidants of resveratrol, the compound found in wine and supplemented by millions via capsules. Doctors believe the EGCG is 100 times MORE effective than Vitamin C and 25 Times better than Vitamin E at protecting cells from damage linked to cancer, heart disease, and other illnesses.

Plus, EGCG is linked to raising your metabolic rate, even while resting. The University of Chicago’s Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research found that EGCG caused rats to lose up to 21% of their body weight when injected with EGCG. The rats even consumed up to 60% less food after just 7 days of daily EGCG injections. Researchers are still learning more about how SlimTea may help with appetite suppression, but it’s certainly effective in ‘blocking’ starches, as it prevents the digestion of some carbohydrates. Some say that EGCG may even replace ephedra as a weight loss supplement!

About WuLong & SlimTea

In this article, you will learn 25 SHOCKING ways to lose weight and reverse aging with SLIMTEA.

“SlimTea” is a very special type of Oolong that grows high in the Chinese Fujian Mountains.

And, frankly there’s no tea like it.

Green tea fights fat, but Okuma's Oolong tea fights it FASTER.

Black tea stimulates energy levels, but SlimTea not only helps you feel more productive with more energy throughout the day, but it helps you sleep better through the night!

Tea comes cheap in the grocery store, but you’re often drinking tea that’s riddled with scary chemicals you literally steep into your hot water when you drink it. These have been linked to brain diseases and other chronic illnesses. Yuck! These teas prevent your body from detoxification, which can make you MORE fat!

Slim Tea

But our all natural teas and our 100% organic SlimTea, HELPS your body detox and shed fat.

You WON’T find it in grocery stores, because SlimTea is harvested from a pristine UNESCO World heritage site.

Herein lay mountain plantations where the Chinese have harvested SlimTea for centuries to:

  • Boost Metabolism
  • Shed Arm & Belly Fat
  • Increase Energy Expenditure
  • Boost Up To 523 MORE Calories Every Day

According to Fujian legend, SlimTea was discovered by Divine Guidance, hence it's name, which loosely translates as “Goddess of Mercy”.

In the Buddhist tradition, the Goddess of Mercy, Guanyin, was known as Boddhisatva, an enlightened being that decided to stay on earth to bring others to enlightenment.

A tea maker in Fujian passed a statue beside a Buddhist temple one day and saw that it was neglected and overgrown with weeds.

Not having enough money to fix the temple, he decided that at least he could burn incense at the foot of the statue and sweep the yard.

After months of this simple offering to Guanyin, the Goddess appeared in a dream and showed him a cave near his home that contained a very special tea plant no one had ever seen.

Now perhaps the most coveted tea in China and beyond, research appears to indicate that this tea is equally powerful at reducing another type of figure - your own!

The benevolent Goddess of Mercy seems to have made this Oolong very "slimming". It is drunk with meals to help foster a feeling of satisfaction and satiation.

Read on to learn how Okuma's Oolong Tea can help you:

  • Burn 2.4 Times MORE Calories Than Green Tea
  • Reduce The Fattening Effects of Carbs
  • Increase Energy Levels
  • Rev Up Your Metabolism

It is with great pleasure that I bring you 25 AMAZING Ways To Fight Fat and Reverse Aging With Tea.

A Tea With 1000% The Fat-Fighting Power Of Other Superfoods...

First, let’s talk about polyphenols, the antioxidants we mentioned that are linked to weight loss and anti-aging.

  • Polyphenols help you:
  • Fight Acne
  • Restore Organ Health
  • Strength Bones
  • Fight Cavities and Tooth Decay
  • Strengthen Your Heart
  • Fight Cancer
  • Lose Weight

Polyphenols are found in many forms; including polyphenols in tea, wine, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. They even help give these foods their exotic colors!

But if you want up to 10 TIMES the polyphenols from fruits and vegetables, drink SlimTea. That’s right – SlimTea has up to 1000% as many polyphenols as fruits and vegetables like blueberries or certain aromatic herbs like mint.

WuLong and SlimTea are extremely rich in polyphenols. This is because it is the leaves of a plant that contain the most polyphenols. And where does tea come from? Polyphenol-rich leaves!

Leaves from high-mountains have up to 10 TIMES the antioxidants found in many fruits and vegetables.

In fact, Okuma's Oolong Teas have many more polyphenols than almost any other tea on earth. In Taiwan many people pay up to $300 per box!

And if you think that SlimTea is an easy anti-aging ingredient you can add to almost anything, you should try SlimTea Capsules.

SlimTea Capsules are so much stronger than green tea that they help you burn up to 523 MORE calories per day!

A Weight Loss Tea That Gets Rid of ACNE?

Gets Rid of ACNE.png

If you research how to reverse signs of aging naturally, you may find scientists touting the benefits of fruits and vegetables with Flavonoids. You’ll hear them talk about blue-berries or other anti-oxidant-rich foods.

Flavonoids are part of a polyphenol’s composition that fight aging by reducing signs of wrinkles and improving the appearance of teeth, hair, and especially skin.

WuLong and SlimTea, which are both extremely high in these antioxidants, can significantly reduce signs of atopic dermatitis, or “acne”, in just 30 days!

Ancient Chinese literature talks about this special type of Oolong like it was an elixir used to fight various serious diseases. It was viewed as a lifeextending tea.

Remember our Japanese researcher, Doctor Nakano? He found that participants who drank one liter (approximately 6 cups) of SlimTea every day dropped their average organ age by more than 6% in only ONE MONTH.

Boosting Your Immune System... For Weight Loss?

Okuma's Oolong Tea really does make you feel better. That’s because WuLong and SlimTea have something called L-Theanine in it, which helps boost serotonin production in your brain; which makes you feel happier!

But these teas don't just make you ‘feel’ better; it actually helps your body’s immune system, too!

Tea polyphenols protect tea plants from diseases, and they do the same within the human body when consumed.

These antioxidants go to work neutralizing free radicals, the toxins within our bodies caused by stress hormones, pollution, and other nasty elements from our environment.

Tea polyphenols, or flavonoids, scavenge for those oxidants and take them out before they can cause cellular damage.

With cases of cancer on the rise, tea polyphenols have garnered a lot of attention because of their powerful ability to protect cell membranes and prevent cellular DNA damage, which has been linked to reducing the risk of certain cancers. This is all part of its natural immune-boosting effect.

Blocking “Intestinal Fat” Absorption

WuLong and SlimTea polyphenols have been widely studied in the scientific community for their ability to fight obesity, diabetes, and even reduce belly fat.

According to the International Journal on Obesity, Oolong tea blocks the absorption of fat in your intestines.

This has led scientists to proclaim that WuLong and SlimTea can lower the risk of obesity.

Another study by the University Tokushima School of Medicine concluded that WuLong and SlimTea restricts fat and carbohydrate absorption while revving up your metabolism.

Naturally void of calories, this makes Okuma's Oolong a no-brainer for anyone looking to block the absorption of fat in their body.

Moreover, polyphenols have been shown to help:

  • Lower plasma glucose in type 2 diabetics
  • Reduce LDL cholesterol
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Fight Cavities and Tooth Decay
  • Reduce bacteria that causes gum disease
  • Fight atopic dermatitis, or acne
  • Reduce Hair Loss
  • Fight Type-2 Diabetes

All of these effects help reduce fat while making you feel and look healthier.

How To Make Weight Loss A WellFormed Habit With This “Mind Trick”...

Have you ever heard of "Maxwell Maltz"?

Well if you haven't heard of him, you've surely heard of his studies in behavior.

A surgeon, Maltz was the man who discovered that patients took about three weeks, or '21 days', to grow accustomed to their faces when they were altered or changed.

This came to be the common belief that it takes "21 days to make a habit".

People try to quit smoking, eat more vegetables, and even wake up earlier with just 21 days of practice.

But does it really work?

Can You Form A Habit In 21 Days Or Less?

You've heard it touted by many a self-help guru or motivational speaker.

Most people now believe the notion that it takes just 21 days to form a habit.

However, researchers at University College in London alongside a study published in the European Journal of Psychology show differently.

These studies indicate that it actually takes closer to two months, not one, to form new habits.

And in some people, it takes considerably more time

How To Make Weight Loss A Habit...

Making a healthy lifestyle a "habit" is the EASIEST way to lose weight.

If you only think to cook healthy foods, make workouts a part of your daily routine, and take SlimTea Capsules every day, the fat will melt steadily away.

Don't expect this to take a mere 3 weeks, though!

Your commitment to your health must be for the long term!

(You're worth it!)

You can lose 100 pounds...

But if you go right back to your old habits - your heart, health, and your waistline will surely suffer!

If you want to make a REAL difference in your health and longevity - give yourself more than just 21 days to build that foundation!

The Easiest Way To Lose Weight Fast...

Diets DON'T work.

They restrict your calories, leaving you hungry all day and often prone to binging at night or on the weekends.

Or they get BORING. Who can eat salads for every meal?! (And chicken breast... don't get me started!)

But simply replacing your coffee, juices, sports drinks and energy drinks with SlimTea can help your body focus on REAL fat burning.

These chemical-laden drinks cause your body to STORE FAT.

WuLong and SlimTea burns up to 240 more calories every day, and SlimTea Capsules burn up to 523 MORE CALORIES EVERY DAY.

These burn fat SO FAST that SlimTea Capsules users like the one below are constantly writing me with messages like this:

WOW! Forty pounds! Congratulations Rhonda!

The EASIEST Way To Lose Weight...

When it comes to the subject of habits, it’s important to note that if something is really THAT hard, you won’t stick to it.

You can be in any country on earth, and as long as you have a cup of water, you can add SlimTea to your meal.

Take our SlimTea Capsules with you wherever you go, and you can benefit from healthier teeth, skin, organs, and hair starting today.

And our SlimTea Capsules- when taken 15 minutes before food- help CURB your carbohydrate cravings, helping you lose weight.

SlimTea Capsules have less caffeine than a cup of coffee, and 500% MORE fat burning power than green tea.

100 Times More Effective Than Vitamin C?

Did you know that archeologists have found evidence of tea being made as early as 5,000 years ago?

Evidence suggests that in India and China, tea was first cultivated by boiling Camellia Sinensis in water.

Camellia Sinensis is the plant from which ALL tea derives.

While most tea is associated with China and India by origin, tea is also wildly popular in England. And what’s really interesting – Americans are the ones who came up with the idea of a tea bag, and began drinking tea over ice in the early 1900’s.

Tea is not only one of the world’s most popular drinks, but it is possibly the healthiest!

Scientists are perpetually studying the benefits of tea over short-term health and weight loss, and long-term anti-aging and disease prevention. Nearly 2.5 MILLION tons of tea are produced annually, with 20% being green and most of the rest being black tea.

Oolong is a rare, unique tea that is semi-fermented. Green tea is unfermented and black tea is fully fermented.

We believe that the world’s best tea for health and weight loss is a rare form of Oolong that we call “SlimTea”.

Oolong is loaded with polyphenols – which are powerful antioxidants that help to fight disease, even cancer!

And SlimTea is from a high mountaintop plantation that has been cared for by Chinese tea masters since 1280 B.C.!

You can see why we feel it’s the
most extraordinary tea on earth

Like wine, tea varies with temperature, season, soil of origin, and horticultural practices.

The main chemical composition that assists with overall health from tea comes from polyphenols.

Polyphenols in tea include “flavonoids”, which are catechins, epicatechins, epicatechin gallate, epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and proanthocyanidins.

EGCG is considered by many to be the most important active component in tea for health, and normal tea has 8-12% polyphenols.

Okuma's Oolong, however, has approximately 85% POLYPHENOLS, with nearly 50% of that being EGCG and 50% of that being catechins.

So, yes, this is another reason that Okuma's Oolong is one of the world’s most rare and powerful teas.

Effortlessly Boost Your Metabolism

(Really, It’s That Easy!)

Have you ever noticed how you feel a little hot and sweaty after eating a big meal?

Well, there’s more to it than just having a full stomach. When you eat, your body creates heat and energy. It’s called “diet-induced thermogenesis.”

Here’s how it works…

When you eat certain foods, the level of insulin in your body increases. And this creates energy and heat. As your body temperature goes up, your metabolism starts to kick into high gear. That’s when you start using the fat in your cells for energy.

The higher the thermic effect of the foods you eat, the easier it will be to get rid of any excess fat.

Proteins are great for producing a high thermic effect. They take longer to process in your body and create more heat. But fat, on the other hand, is easily processed by your body and produces very little thermic effect.

The problem is, the common “diet” in our modern world is full of processed foods with little protein, so it can be difficult to trigger thermogenesis with the foods you eat alone.

A simple and quick way to activate thermogenesis is by drinking good old-fashioned tea. And there’s a certain type of tea that stands out from the rest when it comes to helping you melt away excess fat.

This is where SlimTea can benefit you.

The best way I can describe SlimTea is halfway between green and black teas. And while it may not be in a class of its own, SlimTea, a rare form of oolong tea, is the best of both worlds because you get the fat-shredding benefits of both!

When green tea is made, the tea leaves are dried, but still kept whole.

And because of this technique, the leaves hold on to powerful antioxidants called catechins. The catechin in green tea is called EGCG.

And EGCG is what helps your body trigger your internal thermogenesis switch to help your body heat up and melt fat for energy.

Black tea is produced in a different way.

The leaves are dried but then they are crushed up, which produces lots of different antioxidants called flavonoids. These antioxidants work in a different way to help you lose excess fat.

The catechins in green tea help you melt fat, but the flavonoids in black tea help you keep it off. SlimTea falls somewhere in between the two.

Numerous studies show that these powerful antioxidants help block starches from being absorbed into your body. And if the starches aren’t absorbed, they can’t turn into fat.

The leaves of SlimTea tea aren’t whole and they aren’t crushed, either… they’re bruised.

This method of preparation enables it to hold on to both the EGCGs of green tea and the flavonoids of black tea for a double attack on your fat cells.

So not only will you trigger thermogenesis, you’ll also be working to keep the starches from turning to fat in your body.

The best part? WuLong and SlimTea only take a few minutes to brew.

How To Reverse Age With Weight Loss Tea...

You’ve probably wasted hundreds, or even thousands of dollars on vitamins, dietary supplements, and other well-marketed ‘health’ cleanses and pills.

Well today is the day you STOP throwing good money away. That’s because today I’d like to share with you a health ‘miracle’ that has truly changed my life.

And it’s nothing more than pure Oolong Tea…

There is one rare, specific Oolong that is grown high in mountaintops and is free from pesticides, chemicals, or environmental toxins of any kind.

It’s so pure that the Chinese call it “Medicinal Tea”; and they’ve been drinking it for thousands of years to prevent heart disease, lower cholesterol, stay thin and active until late ages.

Does this sound too good to be true?

I get it. I had a hard time believing it myself until I read all the research!

Our society has been brainwashed into thinking that technology will somehow be able to ‘hack’ our genetics.

Or that if we have a weight issue, it’s practically out of our control and requires pills, crèmes, gadgets, and even surgeries to “fix”. This just isn’t true.

There is a whole lot of money to be made in selling weight loss products that are complicated and expensive to produce.

And often when you do find a “natural” slimming product, it’s been produced in less-than-ideal conditions, filled with additives, or even chemically treated to preserve it on shelves or in packaging.

This rare Oolong is different.

It’s packaged on a tea plantation with many generations of tea growers who are like sommeliers in China. They don’t use chemicals or pesticides on their crops so that they can have the best, most floral-tasting tea leaves in their plantations. And although their yield is lower, they are committed to quality and excellence… as well as great taste!

Best of all, scientists have caught on. We’ve spent the past ten years inundated with study after study of people using this Oolong to:

  • Fight Acne
  • Lower Cholesterol
  • Improve Heart Health
  • Reduce Risk of Cancers
  • Blast away fat

Why is it so powerful?

This rare Oolong Tea is loaded with an antioxidant called catechins, which are powerful in both fat loss as well as disease prevention. One of the catechins in this tea is called “Epigallocatechin Gallate”, or “EGCG”.

It has been researched thoroughly and is capable of blocking startch, burning fat, and increasing your rate of metabolism.

As a result of these features, this rare tea is capable of helping with MAJOR weight loss.

And when drunk daily for weight maintenance and detoxification, it can also improve skin conditions, bone health, immunity, and even help you keep the weight off for GOOD.

Antioxidants in this tea repair damage from “Free Radicals” at a cellular level.

Free radicals are molecules with unpaired electrons that cause damage to surrounding molecules, and aging in your body.

They’re outside of our bodies, too.

They are responsible for the deterioration of plastics, the fading of paint, and age-related illnesses such as cancer or stroke.

Oh yeah, and they’re also the culprits for ‘wrinkles’ you often see in people who’ve spent too much time in the sun.

Like the sunbathing 40 year-old who looks 25 years older than she is.

Yep – free radicals at work.

Enter this special tea.

It boosts the wellbeing of your whole body’s tissue and repairs damage from free radicals, enhancing the radiance of your skin… and your BRAIN in the process!

In case you didn’t already guess – the tea we’re talking about is SLIMTEA!

It’s the world’s best, most natural, 100% Organic tea for weight loss and slimming.

The “Smarter” Way To Shed Fat?

Rodale News recently reported that a nice tall glass of SlimTea may reduce your risk of stroke by as much as 60%! That’s because of the high polyphenol content in the Premium, Medicinal Grade Oolong in SlimTea.

What’s more – Prevention magazine found that iced tea contains AS MANY stroke-fighting antioxidants as hot tea!

Two things you MUST do to get the brain-boosting power of iced oolong:

1. Brew it in boiling water, between 185 and 190 degrees and steep for at least 3 minutes.

2. DON’T buy just any Oolong. Use powerful Medicinal grade WuLong or SlimTea.

That’s because Okuma's Oolong Tea has been tested by third party research labs and has been found FREE from toxins, chemicals, pesticides, or traces of any junk you don’t want to steep into your tea.

SlimTea is one of the world’s first 100% ORGANIC medicinal grade Oolong teas!

A Weight Loss Trick That Makes You “Glow”?

Scientific studies show that SlimTea fights acne, or as the researchers call it, “atopic dermatitis”. SlimTea is a very special, semi-fermented Oolong that ONLY grows high in the mountaintops of China’s Fujian Province.

There are a plethora of studies showing that SlimTea benefits those with Type II Diabetes, curbs obesity, and even makes you happier!

But did you know… One of the most highly-researched effects of SlimTea is it’s ability to banish blemishes?!

You see, WuLong and SlimTea are loaded with antioxidants that assist with acne prevention. These antioxidants fight skin irritations and inflammation. Okuma's Oolong Tea extracts can even fight off bacteria and viruses are behind your blemishes! It even flushes out bad cells from under your skin to build healthier ones!

Our Oolong tea is chock full of Vitamins A, B, C and E… PLUS amino acids and antioxidants; which all work together in acne prevention.

While two cups a day is recommended to stir up weight loss in your body, you can drink even six cups a day if you’re really looking to rev up your metabolism and fight acne.

Free radicals are substances we’re exposed to that become oxidized in the body. You know about oxidization if you’ve read about SlimTea, because it oxidizes fat: or erodes fat like rust seems to melt away at cars.

We are exposed to free radicals through things like smoking, stress, chemicals in processed foods, or even UV rays.

These free radicals make you age more quickly both on the skin… as well as deep beneath the surface in your organs.

Scientists believe that free radicals cause your skin to show aging even before its time.

WuLong and SlimTea fights this process... and helps you feel great while you do it!

Take A Load Off – Stress-fighting Superpower!

Stress promotes belly fat. This is because the stress hormone, cortisol, prompts us to eat foods that are high in fat. These “comfort foods” blunt the effects of cortisol (and this is why we think of them as comforting).

Obviously, then, limiting stress helps you lose MORE weight, especially in your tummy!

This can be done in part through proper sleep, and especially through proper nutrition, such as through eating more satisfying fats and proteins.

And above all else, drink nature’s most powerful, stress-reducing tea.

SlimTea is a high-altitude Oolong that has off-the-charts antioxidants. What’s more, SlimTea helps to reduce stress, which causes belly fat. That’s because it helps you:

    • Lower Blood Pressure
    • Detoxify chemicals that slow down your body… and your metabolism!
    • Boost energy levels and mood – making it easier to exercise!
    • Calm your mood with L-Theanine
    • Promote synaptic plasticity, memory, and cognitive function due to high flavonoids.

If you want to get rid of stress, and belly fat, drink SlimTea. Just two cups a day of SlimTea has helped hundreds of thousands of people lose weight, reduce stress, and feel more energy!

Block Carbs For Weight Loss...

Scientists at the Suntory Research Center decided to study the effects of SlimTea on the absorption of carbohydrates.

As you probably know, eating a lot of carbs all at once can cause your blood sugar to spike.

And when your blood sugar spikes, an insulin spike is sure to follow.

If your pancreas releases too much insulin (which is a common problem for a lot of folks), you’ll then experience low blood sugar.

And, when your blood sugar drops, you may feel the urge to eat even more carbs!

 Carbs For Weight Loss

And thus begins a pattern of MORE eating, MORE insulin, MORE low blood sugar, and on and on in a vicious cycle that can “pile on” the fat.

Scientists found that consuming SlimTea 15 minutes before eating carbohydrates helps to reduce the insulin spike you would normally experience after eating carbs.

Heal Yourself From Toxic Chemical Damage...

According to a June 2014 article from The Independent, researchers in Sweden found that women who avoid sunbathing are TWICE as likely to die as those who sunbathe… DAILY!

The study was ENORMOUS. It followed 30,000 women for over 20 years.

It showed that women who *avoided* sun exposure had double the mortality of women who were exposed to the most sun.

Researchers concluded that avoiding the sun and bathing in sunscreen does more than just make for cheesy pickup lines at the beach, like, “Can you reach that spot on my back?”

After 20 years, they’re convinced that avoiding the sun and wearing sunscreen regularly cause Vitamin D3 deficiency, which is the BEST form of Vitamin D, and is produced from the sun’s UVB rays.

One study out of Sweden even concluded that melanoma was MORE frequent in sunscreen users than in those who didn’t use sunscreen.

Elizabeth Plourde, PhD, even authored a book entitled, “Sunscreens – Biohazard: Treat as Hazardous Waste”.

She documents life-threatening dangers of sunscreens and provides evidence that malignant melanoma and skin cancers INCREASE with sunscreen use over a 30-year period.

One reason for this link may be chemicals in sunscreen that are known carcinogens and endocrine disruptors.

Dr. Plourde claims that, ““In areas where there has been much exposure to ED [endocrine disrupting] chemicals, coral and other sea populations have died

off and the prevalence of dual-sexed fish has risen.” EEW!

What’s more, she revealed that according to tests, 97% of Americans have sunscreen chemicals in their bloodstream!

She suggests that Vitamin D3 deficiency may even be linked to avoidance of sun, and especially the overuse of sunscreen.

Do you fear that you’ve been over-exposed to dangerous chemicals that may do more harm than protection for your body?

If so, you can detoxify your body with a cup or capsule of refreshing SlimTea.

SlimTea is loaded with fat-burning polyphenols that help increase your energy AND detox your body!

Banish Overeating Naturally...

Overeating is one of the major causes of obesity in America. Sometimes you don’t know you’re doing it – i.e. pigging out on popcorn in front of the television or mindlessly munching chips at the pool table.

But whether you tend to overeat without realizing it, or whether you can’t help yourself but to frequent the ‘All You Can Eat’ Chinese buffets… overeating can derail your weight loss plan!

What’s more, it can lead to serious health conditions, and not the least of these is depression and heart conditions. In fact, that’s one reason they say that heart attacks spike during holidays. Follow these tips to use SlimTea and prevent overeating:

1. Don’t Skip Meals To Cut Calories…

I’m a huge fan of intermittent fasting – that is fasting for 16-18 hours to give your body a chance to reset, promote healthy gut bacteria, and fight disease.

But skipping meals to save calories for meals later in the evening is a no-no. What you’re doing is setting yourself up to become overwhelmed with hunger and make worse food choices once you finally eat again.

Instead of skipping meals, my suggestion is actually the following:

2. Don’t Eat On A Schedule…

Eating just ‘because’ it’s breakfast, lunch, or dinner doesn’t make sense as much as skipping meals when you’re hungry doesn’t make sense. Yep, you guessed it. The best way to prevent overeating is to eat only when you’rehungry. The other night I had a meal rich with fatty meats, nutritious vegetables, and protein-packed black beans. But the next day I barely felt like eating anything but salads and raw almonds until dinner.

Was this unhealthy? Not necessarily. My body had plenty of calories, protein, and fat from the previous night’s meal and I didn’t ‘need’ a big breakfast or lunch the following day.

There’s no reason you “have to” eat three square meals every day. In fact, many nutritionists will recommend 5-8 small meals per day to keep your metabolism roaring as opposed to three meals daily.

3. Don’t Eat THIS At Breakfast…

One of the best ways to prevent yourself from overeating is to NOT eat carbs at breakfast. Eating protein, fat, and drinking SlimTea at breakfast will help you crave less food throughout the rest of the day, and keep you satiated enough not to overeat at your next meal or snack.

People often overeat when they feel sluggish or their energy levels are low. Plus, low blood sugar levels trigger food cravings; another main reason for overeating.

However, eating a healthy, satisfying, protein and fat-packed breakfast is shown to help regulate your blood sugar, and SlimTea will help you avoid insulin spikes and block fat-storing effects of starches.

I don’t recommend skipping breakfast, as many studies suggest that skipping breakfast often leads to MORE weight gain.

4. Don’t Eat When You’re Thirsty…

One of the main reasons people overeat or eat when they aren’t hungry is because they’re actually THIRSTY!

Drink a glass of iced SlimTea before EVERY meal to help you curb your appetite before you indulge. You will often find that the liquid makes you feel more full, and that you aren’t as ravenously hungry after the SlimTea. Plus, SlimTea stimulates digestion and metabolism, helping you quickly process your food into energy.

5. Drink Lots of Water…

In order to maintain a very healthy weight and muscular figure, I drink water all day.

It makes my abs look better, gives me tons of energy, and it also curbs hunger pangs without adding calories to my diet.

I always make a pitcher of iced SlimTea in the morning and sip it throughout the day.

While only 2 cups of SlimTea per day is recommended for weight loss and increased metabolism, many studies show participants have the *best* results when drinking an entire liter of SlimTea every day.

I believe that SlimTea is SO delicious that you can reuse your bag for a second 1/2 or even FULL cup after you drink your first. That way you can keep drinking our incredible Medicinal-Grade Oolong Tea all day long without adding caffeine!

How To Get Rockin’ Abs...

I never really thought I’d be one of those people with ‘abs’.

Sure I ran 7 miles at a stretch, ate kale like it was going extinct, and I even did the periodic round of crunches on my living room floor, just for good measure.

But I certainly was far from having ‘popped’ abs.

What changed for me? Well, for one I started to work out less with higher intensity workouts.

I stopped existing on diets of vegetables and carbs… and started to eat more lean meats, nuts, and cut the sugar and carbs.

Most importantly, I cut chemicals from my diet.

Suddenly I started to see a nice line cut down the center of my stomach.

I knew I was onto something so I added a few more ab-friendly habits to my life.

Here they are…

1. I Trained With Intention…

I always assumed that my Abs, being the core of my body, were always working.

However now I make sure to train my abs at least three times per week.

Some days I train with planks, other days with variations of sit-ups that you find in my exercise tutorials when you pick up your SlimTea.

2. I Added Weights To Abs Training…

I once read that Britney Spears did 1,000 crunches every single day to keep her abs looking shredded during tours.

That sounds terrible!

What I found, however, is that adding weights to my ab exercises forced my muscles to work harder, and make my abs show more.

Now I do fewer repetitions with higher intensity.

The rest of my training has taken on a similar tune – less time, more intensity.

I explain more of that in the Exercise Manuals you receive with your SlimTea.

3. I “Timed” My Abs Workouts

I do abs *before* my cardio routine, every time.

That means I’ll perform 3 sets of weighted V-Ups, Bicycle Crunches, or Leg Lifts BEFORE I jump rope or run some sprints.

That causes me to think about my abs when I do cardio, and pull my abs while I workout.

As I am more conscious of the abs, they work harder while I do cardio.

4. I Cleaned Up My Diet…

I can’t believe how many empty calories I used to eat from ‘diet’ foods, like gluten free pretzels, chips, and salty snacks.

Now, I eat for nutrient density. That does NOT mean that I juice 10 pounds of greens into every meal… but instead of mindlessly munching on ‘snack food’, I’ll eat raw veggies, nuts, seeds, or another chemical-free preservative-free *whole* food.

Plus, I cut high-fructose corn syrup, sugars, and many high-glycemic foods from my diet.

This meant restricting foods that I once thought were okay to eat large amounts of, such as syrupy sweet tropical fruits. Now I reserve such foods for treats or ‘dessert’.

5. I Began To Use An Ab-Boosting Supplement…

One of the most popular fatburning supplements on the market is a mix of tea extract with caffeine.

One of the reasons tea shreds your stomach fat is because of the active compound EGCG.

EGCG helps increase your metabolism. Plus, it prevents the breakdown of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, which regulates your metabolism.

Caffeine has the ability to bind receptors of fat cells.

Plus, it helps you burn MORE fat during exercise.

But if you want to take a 100% organic, Natural weight loss supplement that’s FULL of EGCG, take SlimTea Capsules.

Our Capsules are so powerful, they help you burn up to 523 MORE calories per day, every day!

Healthy Eating On The Go...

Here’s a riddle for you:

What are THREE items you can travel with that fit in an average ladies’ purse…

That burn fat better than running an 8-minute mile…

And provide you with a FULL-BODY workout and detoxification in just 7 minutes per day?

People ask me almost daily how I can stay in such good shape and still travel up to 3 weeks per month. Let me tell you – it’s easy! But it hasn’t always been!

For a long time, the traveling destroyed me.

I’d come home from vacation or a convention feeling about 10 pounds heavier. I was bloated, overweight, having digestive troubles, and I never found time to workout.

Gyms and diet membership programs have made you think that a healthy lifestyle is contingent on hours of workouts, tedious diet plans, or even calorie-counting… yuck!

If you’re like me, you have spent thousands of hours on elipticals, yoga mats, cardio machines, and bicycles.

… Only to blow away all your hard work – and money- once you travel.

Not anymore.

Here are my 3 BEST Tricks for staying fit while jet setting…

1. Jumping Rope…

I got my jump rope for less than $20. It’s light, portable, and can be used virtually anywhere you have a flat surface and a sky above your head. (Or high ceilings)

Try to jump rope for 7 minutes in sets of 30-second intervals. Trust me – it’s a lot harder than you think if it’s been a few years since you jumped rope!

Here’s what it looks like:

  • 30 Seconds Jumping Rope
  • 30 Seconds Rest
  • Repeat 7 Times!

Jumping rope torches calories. In fact, you’d have to run an 8-minute mile to work off more calories than you burn jumping rope!

Peter Schulman, MD, associate professor of Cardiology at the University of CT Health Center, says of jumping rope, “It strengthens the upper and lower body and burns a lot of calories in a short time…” But he warns that it’s important to ask your doctor to make sure your heart is up to the challenge!

To lighten stress on joints, jump rope on an exercise mat.

2. Push Ups…

I have always been a HUGE fan of cut, shapely arms. For men and women alike – this can be a HUGE problem area!

So to cut out YOUR shapely arms, try to do 3 sets of 20 pushups.

When you get *really* good, try 3 sets of 30, or even 3 sets of 40! Rest approximately 2 minutes in between sets.

And when you’re *really* good, you can do sets of handstand pushups, side-toside pushups, and even narrow or wide-spaced pushups.

Here’s what your pushups look like:

  • 20 Pushups
  • 2 Minutes Rest
  • Repeat 3 Times

3. Burn Fat Without The Workout?…

If you’re in a hotel or a guest in somebody’s home, it’s not easy to travel with your favorite juicer or blender.

But you can ALWAYS find a way to get hot water for your SlimTea, even in restaurants!

Here are just a few ways that SlimTea will help you burn fat – without hours of boring cardio at the gym!

1. Increase Energy Expenditure – CBS reported that polyphenols in SlimTea are believed to increase Energy Expenditure for up to a 43% INCREASE in fat-burning!

2. Burn More Calories – The University of Tokushima School of Medicine discovered that people who regularly consume SlimTea experienced more than double the calorie-burning results of green tea

3. Crave Less Carbs – The Suntory Research Center in Osaka found that drinking SlimTea 15 minutes before eating helps eliminate carb cravings by reducing the insulin spike you get after eating carbs; which translates to LESS stored fat!

Start with one cup of SlimTea, steeped for 4-7 minutes, before breakfast to get your metabolism revved up for the day. Then drink another cup before lunch to eliminate carb cravings and help you maintain awesome energy all day long – while burning 240 MORE calories per day than green tea!

Revolutionize Your Grocery Store

Budget... and Waistline!

You really shouldn’t be drinking store-bought juice or smoothies. Marketers put trendy labels to fool people into buying expensive ‘health’ drinks with super-sweet concoctions that claim to be loaded with beets, apples, mangoes, oranges, kiwis and, well, … you get the point.

Some of these store-bought juices even have real fruits and vegetables in them, but often the problem is that they’ve watered down the real fruit juice and you’re left with a super-sweet, highly caloric, fiber-less ‘health’ drink (that may even look kinda green…)

Worse yet – they often add high fructose corn syrup to them.

When you strip the blood sugarregulating fiber out of the fruit and then suck down enough fructose to spike the insulin levels of a small village, you risk storing fat in your body.

Worst of all – the insulin spike will leave you craving carbs for the rest of the day!

Try to stick to juice that’s chock full of greens and roots, which will provide you with real benefits that cleanse your body and keep you on track with your slimming goals.

Green equals lean – remember that juicing is incredible – but try to do it at home where you can monitor the ingredients – without the added high fructose corn syrup!

And if you do find yourself with killer carb cravings – I want you to know that there are drinks that can actually help eliminate carb cravings…

That’s right – not only does SlimTea KILL carb cravings… which helps you eat HUNDREDS of less calories per day…

… But it also burns fat for 24 hours after you drink it.

Can you envision the weight you’ll lose if you eat hundreds of calories LESS per day?

It won’t happen overnight – but real results will begin to add up very quickly!

A Heart Healthy Weight Loss Tool...

High cholesterol is a scary reality that millions of people, including some children, face.

It is usually associated with arterial degradation, heart disease, or even strokes!

But cholesterol is also very misunderstood.

A study has recently shed light on a crazy way to lower your cholesterol *naturally*.

You need to know your enemy – and don’t mistake “all” cholesterol as bad.

Simply stated, cholesterol is a fat produced by your liver.

Cholesterol is present in the outer layer of every cell of your body, and you depend on it for normal body function.

Cholesterol Benefits (just a few ;-):

  • Turns those warm sun-rays into Vitamin D
  • Metabolizes fat-soluble Vitamins, such as A, D, E and K
  • Insulates nerve fibers

What Is Good Cholesterol? … And What Is “Bad” Cholesterol?

Cholesterol moves through the blood by lipoproteins; molecules which contain fat (lipid) and protein.

Today we’ll just look at two: LDL’s and HDL’s.

LDL’s, or “Low Density Lipoproteins”, are associated with “Bad” cholesterol.

When your cells don’t use all the cholesterol that LDL transfers from your liver to your cells, it builds up

HDL, or “High Density Lipoprotein”, is associated with “Good” cholesterol.

HDL basically makes sure that excess cholesterol doesn’t build up, but is taken away from your cells back to your liver.

Most people know that you can keep cholesterol in check with regular exercise and a healthy diet, full of fruits and vegetables.

Kick Up Your Low Cholesterol Game…

Did you know that dropping as little as 5% of your body fat can help reduce cholesterol levels?

If you’re 180 pounds, that’s only a weight loss goal of only 9 pounds!

High cholesterol risks include:

    • Narrowing of the arteries (aka “atherosclerosis)
    • Coronary disease
    • Heart Attack
    • Angina
    • Blood vessel disease and cardiovascular conditions
    • Stroke

But what if you aren’t overweight?

That’s where this incredible study comes into play.

<style="background-color:yellow;">Oolong Tea Lowers Cholesterol… and Makes Your ORGANS Healthier?

A Japanese researcher from the Aichi Medical University Institute found that in participants drinking one liter of Oolong tea daily, average organ age dropped more than six percent in only ONE MONTH.

One participant even saw her “bad” cholesterol drop from 137 to 98!

This particular participant’s average organ rate dropped from 38 to her actual age – only 29 years old!

75% of participants saw a reduction in waist size and two-thirds experienced a reduction in the thickness of their upper arms.

(I don’t know about you – but upper arms are my biggest pet peeve in photos!)

Why Is Oolong Tea SO Special?

While it is believed that ALL polyphenols can stop hardening of the arteries, Oolong tea is special because of the SIZE of the polyphenol molecules it contains.

The researcher concluded that the polyphenols in Oolong tea perfectly match lipase, an enzyme that DISSOLVES BODY FAT.

In a modern society that stuffs food with cholesterol plaguing trans fats…

… and busy lifestyles that often keep us in front of our computers instead of exercising ;-)…

SlimTea’s Oolong tea is the perfect accompaniment to fight fat, and high cholesterol!

Our laboratory has confirmed that SlimTea FAR exceeds other ‘leading’ Oolong teas.

The Easy Way To Lower Your Cholesterol

That’s why SlimTea is the world’s leading Oolong tea.

Oolong tea has been shown in scientific studies to help STOP the hardening of the arteries and reduce bad cholesterol.

And SlimTea is the world’s most powerful Oolong!

It’s grown high on a mountain in China by master tea growers, and it is FREE of pesticides, chemicals, or other environmental toxins.

How To Avoid Age-Related Weight Gain

Everybody knows that as you age, you have a harder time keeping off the weight that was relatively easy to keep off when you were younger. That’s why it’s important to make a few adjustments to your diet and exercise routine as you age…

It’s important to understand the variables that go into age-related weight gain.

1. Reduced Testosterone or Estrogen…

Aging leads to a lack of the testosterone hormone in men, resulting in a decline of their metabolic rate causing them to lose lean muscle tissues.

They will burn fewer calories than before due to reduced metabolism resulting in fat accumulation and, ultimately, weight gain. In the case of women, it is the estrogen hormone that lowers in intensity which leads to a decline in metabolism and an increase in weight.

2. Lack of Activity…

At a young age, we usually indulge in more physical activity than as we grow older. Due to this, our muscle mass decreases and we put on weight.

3. Body Process…

As we age, the process that our bodies work in slows down. Due to this, the body’s ability to burn fat keeps declining.

Here are some tips to check the weight that you gain with age…

1. Increase Physical Activity…

There are a lot of BENEFITS to aging and staying fit. For one, you may no longer have small children in the house.

Or you may be working a bit less. This leaves you MORE time to do fun things, have adventures and explore new physical activities.

Sitting at a child’s soccer games may turn into Saturday morning hikes.

And instead of working ding to dong, you may have the time to hit the gym before you head to the office.

If you’re really lucky, you work from home and you can train during lunch!

Keeping in mind that the body may not necessarily supply as much energy as it used to when you were young, your exercise regimen and types of exercises you do must be decided.

You can also take a long stroll in the park in the evening, join dance classes or walk instead of traveling by car.

Increased physical activity means high metabolism and muscle building, resulting in preventing fat accumulation.

2. Stop Dieting…

Dieting to lose weight with growing age is NOT a good option. This usually works against your weight loss goals and makes you put onmore weight.

So, it is better to keep your diet healthy and ensure that it includes a good quantity of fruits, vegetables, juices, nuts and fiber. Don’t count calories, chase nutrients!

3. Eat MORE Protein…

Protein helps build muscles.

Make sure to exercise regularly to keep your digestive system up and running. Quality protein is the most important calorie that affects your metabolic rate, which helps you lose more weight.

It also helps you keep muscle during weight loss, as opposed to losing it.Plus, it works to help enhance insulin and leptin function, immunity, and healthy cholesterol.

4. Drink WuLong Slimming Tea or SlimTea…

As you age, your metabolism slows down. But SlimTea helps:

  • Raise your metabolism
  • Boost your immunity
  • Regulate Insulin Spikes
  • Block the negative effects of starches…

If you’re looking to boost your metabolism, immunity, and keep the weight off as you age, SlimTea is the most convenient thing you can do.

It doesn’t require exercise, it isn’t a fancy diet, and you can take it virtually anywhere you go!

How To Eat MORE Fat To Lose MORE Weight

Like many of you, I grew up surrounded by obese men & women.

Yet every overweight person I knew drank diet soda, had done Weight Watchers many times over, and even religiously watched fat and used low-fat or “fat-free” foods.

It made me feel doomed…

Why are so many people who avoid fat the very same people who struggle more than anybody else with their weight?

Scientists have been researching this seemingly paradoxical trend of a society obsessed with low-fat foods that, nevertheless, continues to gain girth.

Here’s what they found…

1. Europeans Eat Tons of Saturated Fats and Have the Lowest Risk of Heart Disease

I’ll never forget living in France about 10 years ago and watching women walk around with baguette sandwiches loaded with fatty meats and cheeses; cooking everything with gratuitous amounts of butter, and generally looking very thin and healthy!

This is due in part to a more mobile lifestyle – people generally walk more places in European countries.

But there’s an actual term for this: “The French Paradox”. This is a phrase used to reference the incredibly low incidence of coronary heart disease in France (in relation to the high-fat diets that are common.)

But did you know that most European countries also have many fewer deaths due to heart disease… despite their ‘high-fat’ diets? [British Journal of Nutrition, 2012]

There is a clear paradoxical relationship between fat consumption and heart disease deaths across Europe

2. The Publishing of US Low-fat Dietary Guidelines Correlates Precisely With The Obesity Epidemic

The National Center for Health Statistics charted the shocking fact that obesity has risen dramatically since the precise time the Low-Fat Dietary Guidelines were published in the U.S in 1977. And they continue to rise every year.

Why is this? Well, most likely it’s because many times people are replacing animal fats and oils with things like sugar. This is a recipe for disaster!

3. High-Fat/Low-Carb Diets Cause MORE Weight Loss Than Low-Fat Diets!

Most people are pretty clear on the fact that margarine is a toxic substitute to butter.

The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism conducted a randomized study that compared a low-carb diet to a Low-Cal, Low-Fat diet.

In this study, women who ate a low-carb, high-fat diet lost more than TWICE the weight of women on a Low-Fat, Low-Cal diet!

According to the British Journal of Nutrition study (above), heart disease is lower in countries with high-fat diets.

And it appears to lead to more weight loss, as well!

4. Restricting Red Meat and High-Fat Dairy Products Correlates with The Obesity Epidemic

The New England Journal of Medicine has charted the rise of obesity at almost the precise time that white meat began replacing red meat… and highfat dairy began to be replaced with Low-Fat Dairy.

Kris Gunnars of Authority Nutrition says it best when he states, “These foods have sustained humans in good health for a very long time and blaming new diseases on old foods just doesn’t make sense” (emphasis added).

The higher the incidence of Type II Diabetes, Coronary Heart Disease, and Obesity… the more people are replacing red meat and full-fat dairy with white meat and low-fat or fat-free dairy. Both trends continue to rise…

Did you know that most low-fat or fat-free drinks are loaded with sugars, and other toxic chemicals to improve their flavor?

It’s delicious AND loaded with antioxidants so that you don’t have to count calories…

And you can still shed stubborn body fat that may be clinging to you from years of toxic low-fat and fat-free foods!

37 scientific studies published within the last few years alone show that SlimTea Oolong helps melt away body fat; boost energy; and even clarify skin, giving your face a clear, radiant glow.

Low-Fat and Calorie-Restrictive Diets have only been a trend since the late 1970’s; but from the trend we’ve seen – low-fat diets do NOT seem to be working!

Dump all your toxic ‘low-fat’, ‘fat-free’, and especially “diet” drinks; and start to see real results from 100% Natural SlimTea Oolong.

Shed stubborn body fat once and for all…

Can Coffee HARM Your Weight Loss Efforts?

Most pictures taken of me after the age of 17 show me with a 20-ounce Starbucks coffee in my hand.

I worked in coffee shops; drank it through late night shifts waiting tables (13 years, to be exact!), sipped it in church… and guzzled it in the car on my way to work – which resulted in most of my wardrobe having coffee stains down the front!

Coffee HARM.jpg

I found a few years ago that waking up to that first cup of Joe was a ritual as important as brushing my teeth – and definitely more important than almost anything else – like showering.

And then my stomach started to really bother me.

I began switching over to SlimTea and things really improved – especially my digestion!

But I’ve always been curious about coffee and what effects it may have been having on my body.

Here are 7 SHOCKING facts about coffee… I wish I had known back then!

1. Coffee Increases Acidity in The Body…

With oils, acids, and compounds like caffeine; coffee can harm your stomach and intestines, even irritating their linings!

Your stomach creates copious amounts of hydrochloric acid (HCI) when you drink coffee – especially if you drink it on an empty stomach.

This makes that morning cup of Joe the WORST time to drink coffee!

Your body needs hydrochloric acid for digestion.

If you put the production of HCI into overdrive, your body will have reduced ability to produce it!

What’s more, you may even encounter problems breaking down and using proteins, some of the most important nutrients your body needs!

If you aren’t digesting your protein, this can lead to:

  • Bloating
  • Gas
  • Irritable Bowels
  • Diverticulitis
  • Colon Cancer
  • … and more…

2. Coffee Irritates Your Bowels…

Coffee’s acidic nature may promote ulcer-inducing bacteria in your stomach.

It’s frequently rumored to be an intestinal irritant that anyone with gastrointestinal problems should avoid.

But caffeine isn’t the problem as much as the enzymes in the coffee bean itself.

So if you have sensitive bowels or ulcers, switching from regular to decaf coffee isn’t going to alleviate the pain you’re in.

In fact, those suffering from IBS, gastritis, Crohn’s Disease, colitis, and ulcers are advised by their doctors to AVOID coffee.

3. Coffee Prevents Healing In Your Gut…

This was the one that put me over the EDGE.

As a sufferer of gluten allergies, soy allergies, and even dairy and casein allergies – I have had a very ‘leaky’ gut before.

And it took a LONG time to really heal.

One of the reasons may be because for a while, I didn’t realize how negatively coffee affected my gut.

The acidity of coffee can actually PREVENT healing of a damaged GI tract.

According to experts, caffeine is not a factor – it’s the nature of the bean itself!

Leaky gut, constipation, bloating, gas… there’s NOTHING fun about GI problems.

And surely you’ve tried to do something about it!

But could coffee be hindering your healing?

4. Coffee Promotes Heartburn…

Heartburn, or acid reflux, is a painful nuisance that millions of people suffer from.

Coffee may actually promote heartburn because it relaxes your esophageal sphincter muscle.

This, again, occurs with both regular AND decaf coffee.

In fact, decaffeinated coffee is shown to be even MORE acid-forming than regular coffee!

5. Coffee May Have Laxative Effects…

I have heard so many people brag about having oatmeal and coffee in the morning to get things ‘going’.

And you know what? For years I ENVIED them!

negatively affect your health.jpg

However, this may work to negatively affect your health and longevity goals.

You see, coffee used as a laxative may cause gastric emptying of the stomach before your food gets the chance to properly digest.

The acidic contents go into your small intestine BEFORE your body is ready, and this can cause injury or inflammation to the very organ that’s supposed to be absorbing nutrients that help you function healthily, lose weight, feel full and satisfied… and ultimately keep you alive!

What’s more, this can also lead to some… err… flatulence problems.

Decaffeinated coffee (are you getting the hint?), seems to have the same effect – so caffeine doesn’t seem to be the contributing factor.

Laxatives are dangerous – especially if you’re trying to lose weight; at which point it’s critical that you stay hydrated in order for your body to function healthily, detoxify, and fight fat.

6. Coffee May Prevent Mineral Absorption…

Coffee affects iron absorption in your body.

It hinders your kidneys’ ability to hold on to calcium, zinc, magnesium, and other important minerals. Yikes!

Even if you take vitamins and supplements every day, coffee drinkers may still wind up being deficient in these important minerals.

Magnesium is critical to helping you achieve bowel regularity.

Dr. Mark Hyman recalls work in the emergency room.

Magnesium was a critical medication whether somebody was:

On the crash cart dying of a life-threatening heart problem…

Constipated and preparing for a colonoscopy….

In Pre-Term Labor, high blood pressure of pregnancy, or seizures

Magnesium is the ‘relaxation’ mineral, but between 50 and 70% of Americans are deficient in this critical supplement.

7. Coffee Can Stress You Out…

Drinking coffee can promote the release of cortisol, a stress hormone that enacts your body’s ‘fight or flight’ response.

This may increase blood pressure and tension levels.

In fact, many report that coffee, which used to give them energy, has turned into the source of jitters that make it difficult to relax.

Engaging stress hormones through coffee may interfere with your digestive process, as well as store fat as a result of the ‘fight or flight’ mode.

Plus, coffee can be extremely high in caffeine. The average cup of coffee has 50 mg. of caffeine.

To put it in perspective, the average cup of SlimTea only has 17 mg. of caffeine.

Consuming excessive amounts of caffeine may negatively affect the metabolism of something called “Gamma-Aminobutyric Acid”, or “GABA”.

GABA helps regulate your mood and gives you more cool under stress, even calming your entire gastrointestinal tract.

Finally, coffee may cause you to release excess B Vitamins, which help with relaxation and stress management.

The Natural Conclusion…

The choice in front of us is pretty simple.

If you want to have optimal GI health and minimize the effects of acidic coffee on our guts, and our ability to absorb nutrients properly in our bodies – it may be time for us to limit our coffee consumption!

Many diets, such as the Paleo or Primal Diets, limit or even discourage theconsumption of coffee for optimal health.

After all – if the goal is to have a healthy gut – why would we risk it?

Well with SlimTea, you actually HELP your body manage:

  • Healthy Digestion & Mineral Absorption Vs. Indigestion & Mineral Deficiency
  • Relaxation Vs. Stress
  • Natural Energy Levels Vs. Jitters
  • Cancer-Fighting Vs. Inflammation Causing

Oh, yeah… and for what it’s worth – I’ve never seen anybody complain about flatulence from our Medicinal-Grade Oolong!

An Appetite Suppressing “Tea Trick”...

SlimTea helps regulate insulin spikes – even helping suppress people’s appetite!

It has been linked in many scientific studies to weight loss and fighting Type 2 Diabetes.

Taking SlimTea 15 minutes before a meal will help eliminate “carb cravings” by regulating insulin spikes — which solves a big problem for a lot of people.

SlimTea is 100% Natural. It has one ingredient: Pure, Premium, Medicinal Grade Oolong from high in the Chinese Wuyi mountains where it has been exposed to NO chemicals, NO pesticides, and NO artificial flavors or coloring.

You can’t find this tea in grocery stores! And we’re one of the world’s FIRST Organic Weight Loss Teas!

More than 37 scientific studies have been published that link SlimTea to increased metabolism, fat oxidation, flatter tummy, tone arms and weight loss. SlimTea is designed to help you burn up to 523 more calories than Green Tea every day.

It lowers carb cravings, increases energy, and cleanses your body of impurities while naturally melting away belly fat.

The L-Theanine in SlimTea helps boost your mood and productivity – even giving you more energy to hit the gym or trails and get your workout on!

Avoiding Sneaky Tea Additives...

One of the reasons green tea is recognized as a natural health miracle is because of this amazing antioxidant: Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate, or EGCG.

EGCG is a catechin polyphenol, or a type of antioxidant found in green tea.

Scientists have linked EGCG to a lower risk of:

 

  • Heart Attack & Stroke
  • High Cholesterol
  • Glaucoma

And it has also been linked to improving:

  • Fat oxidation
  • Obesity Prevention
  • Exercise Performance
  • Metabolism

In fact, EGCG is said to even be replacing weight loss drugs, such as ephedra!

But beware, if you’re drinking green tea in hopes of getting EGCG, you may want to know a couple things first…

Deception On Store Shelves…

Tea has a variety of benefits, but the most significant ones come from its powerful antioxidants.

But many grocery store teas contain little to NO antioxidants in them at all!

ConsumerLab.com found that EGCG levels in bottled green tea may be only 4-47 mg per cup.

They found that home-brewed tea contains only 25-86 mg per serving.

In fact, certain Snapple and Honest Teas claimed to have a whopping 190 mg of EGCG, but were found to have only about 60 percent of that.

Plus, these bottled brews are often loaded with fake sugars… or even corn syrup! Yuck!

Are You Leaching Hazardous Chemicals Into Your Cup?

It’s not enough to worry about whether or not you’re leaching harmful pesticides into your cup.

But many tea bags are made with synthetic chemicals like nylon, thermoplastic, PVC, or polypropylene.

These tea bags aren’t going to melt in your glass, but the molecules in the synthetic chemicals begin to break down in the hot water.

This may cause you to leach scary compounds into your teacup!

Paper tea bags are no better.

They are often treated with epichlorohydrin.

When epichlorohydrin meets water, it leaches a carcinogen that has been linked to infertility and a weakened immune system.

How To Protect Yourself From Harmful Teas…

Sometimes I don’t know what’s worse: chemicals in tea… or false marketing that touts tea and their benefits.

When YOU drink tea, make sure you choose tea from a company that takes pride in their product.

SlimTea has been tested for antioxidants like catechins.

In fact, SlimTea Capsules have 500 milligrams of polyphenols! 40% of those are EGCG.

SlimTea has also been linked to:

  • Lower Blood Pressure
  • Diabetes Prevention
  • Lower Risk of Breast, Colon, Lung, Ovarian, and Prostate Cancers
  • Fat Oxidation
  • Acne Prevention

SlimTea is a very rare Oolong that has been tested by third-party labs. Our bags AND our tea contain NO hazardous chemicals – so you know that when you steep our EGCG-rich fat-oxidizing tea into your cup, you are drinking one of the most pure teas on earth!

It’s grown in a high altitude on a plantation with Master Tea Growers who treat it with the same finesse as a vintner growing grapes!

You Aren’t Hungry... You’re Actually...?

How much water do you think is in your body? Are you 50% water? 90%?

Well the truth is, our bodies are approximately 60% water

Because we lose water through sweat and urination, it’s recommended we drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water daily. The 8X8 rule, if you will.

I learned, however, that we’re in a constant state of dehydration and that drinking a whole gallon of water daily is the way to go.

That’s the equivalent of sixteen eight ounce glasses per day.

So what’s the truth?

Researchers have found that if we don’t stay hydrated throughout the day, we can suffer lower energy levels, and even lower brain function!

Fluid loss through exercise has shown to decrease concentration and mood,and even the occurrence of headaches.

In addition, increased water intake may help with:

    • Constipation
    • Certain Cancer Prevention
    • Kidney Stones
    • Acne

Well if that’s not a reason to drink more water, I don’t know what is!

It’s a very common belief that water has an effect on weight loss.

It may even increase metabolism (especially cold water) and suppress your appetite!

Two studies even claim that drinking 17 ounces of water (just under a venti cup at Starbucks) can temporarily boost your metabolism by up to 30%!

Drinking two full liters of water may even help you increase energy expenditure by approximately 96 calories every day! Whew! But can you get the same results from other drinks?

Don’t worry, you don’t have to drink JUST water to meet your 8X8 quota.

One claim is that coffee and tea don’t count because they’re diuretics. This isn’t proven, though.

In fact, studies actually show that because the diuretic effect of coffee and tea is so mild, it negates that claim.

If you drink a few cups of tea per day and eat water-rich foods such as vegetables, fruits, and certain meats and fish, you should be able to maintain a healthy fluid balance.

While there’s no rule about how much water you SHOULD drink, it’s best to drink as much as you can when you’re thirsty.

And if you want to lose weight, it’s best to drink lots of SlimTea throughout the day!

Instead of a temporary spike in energy expenditure and metabolism, SlimTea boosts your metabolism for a full 24 hours after you drink it!

Plus, it torches up to 523 MORE calories daily!

Beware of store-bought water, as water bottles can often contain BPA, a nasty neurotoxin that’s incredibly dangerous to your brain, and especially to children!

Instead, brew 100% natural SlimTea.

It’s free of toxins, chemicals, pesticides, and it tastes great over ice!
