Loose tea craze - separating the fad from reality - July 18, 2011
It seems as if drinking tea has now become quite socially acceptable, even for men. Everyone is drinking some type of tea these days, especially green tea. They have been told that tea will cure all their ills. Manufacturers have also jumped on the bandwagon with all kinds of crazy products, including slimming tea and green tea pills. If you think either slimming tea or pills with green tea extract is your ticket to losing weight and a healthy lifestyle, think again.
Loose tea is definitely a part of a healthly lifestyle, but tea in itself will not shed the pounds. Have you ever noticed that people who drink tea regularly seem to also pay attention to the other aspects of their health, such as what they eat or how much activity they get. There is no magic pill, and drinking loose tea every day will not single-handedly solve all your weight or health problems. That said, when combined with other healthy lifestyle choices, drinking tea can be very beneficial to your health. In fact, studies have shown a number of positive benefits from drinking tea, including improving cardiovascular health, reducing risk for some cancers and boosting one's immune system.
