Sip on This Tea For Weight Loss And Diabetes Support


Type 2 diabetes is a lifestyle disease. A sedentary lifestyle and poor eating habits are the cause.

As you can imagine, most people with type 2 diabetes are overweight.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to stop the progression of type 2 diabetes is by losing weight. In fact, in many cases, you can even reverse the disease.

The problem?

Many people don’t really like taking all the steps to lose weight. Exercise seems daunting and a healthy diet sounds unappealing. While there are certainly ways to increase exercise and eat well without making sacrifices, people are looking for a quick fix. I get it, especially during pumpkin spice season!

Luckily, there is a super simple way to help with that. Black tea promotes weight loss and regulates blood sugar levels.

Black Tea Promotes Weight Loss

A recent study examined the impact of black and green tea on weight loss. In the study, mice were separated into four groups. Each group received a different diet. Two of the groups were given green tea or black tea extracts.

At the end of the study, roughly four weeks, the researchers weighed the mice. Those given the tea extracts lost a significant amount of weight compared to their high sugar counterparts who were not given the extract.

The weight loss was so significant that it was comparable to mice that were fed a low-fat diet.

To fully understand how the tea extracts led to weight loss, the researchers examined tissue from the large intestines. Fewer bacteria associated with obesity were present and there was an abundance of the bacteria associated with lean muscle.

Those who were given black tea extract, specifically, had an increase a specific bacteria called Pseudobutyrivibrio. This particular bacteria supports the gut microbiome so that the body more efficiently absorbs nutrients.

It seems, then, that maintaining a healthy gut contributes to weight loss. As tea also helps lower blood sugar levels, it seems like a natural drink choice for many diabetics!
