Health Benefits for drinking Wu Long Tea

Burns Calories MORE THAN TWICE as Green Tea
In a study published in the August 2003 edition of the Journal of Medical Investigation, scientists from Japan's University of Tokushima School of Medicine found that people who drank two cups a day of wu long tea experienced over 157% greater fat burning results than those who drank the same amount of green tea.

Turns Body Fat Naturally to Energy
In the Fall 2006 edition of the Tea Experience Digest, Dr. Saleeby reports "Wulong tea in fact lessens absorption of fats, increases the body’s metabolism and is responsible for noradrenaline-induced lipolysis (breakdown) of adipose tissue." Wu long tea burns stubborn body fat naturally converting it to energy! Wulong tea also appears in the latest issue of Women's Health and Fitness!

Blocks Fattening Carbs
Eating too many carbohydrates causes weight gain by increasing insulin levels. However, a new study from scientists at the Suntory Research Center in Osaka, Japan, shows that the nutrients in WuLong tea may help "blunt" the rise in insulin you normally get after eating carbs. This means that by drinking Wu Long tea, you may be able to have your cake and eat it, too!

Helps Managing Blood Sugar, Preventing and Controlling Type 2 Diabetes
For people with type 2 diabetes, tea, along with a healthy diet could help. Statistics for type 2 diabetes are on the rise, especially in our young. Nutritionists, doctors and scientific researchers are focusing their energies on discovering ways a healthier diabetes diet, which could include consumption of wulong tea, could help to reduce the affects of this disease.

May Assists in Managing High Cholesterol Levels
Catechins, another group of antioxidants, have been found to reduce cholesterol, and wu long tea is teeming with them. Cholesterol is a special type of fat and is necessary for health. There is good cholesterol and bad cholesterol, and wulong tea increases the good while decreasing the bad. This helps prevent hardening of the arteries and blockage of blood flow. A 2001 Japanese study found that it reduces cholesterol after 1 month of regular drinking.

Has Been Shown to Assist Lowering Blood PressureA
2004 study by Yang found that drinking green and oolong tea for at least a year reduces high blood pressure. Regular drinkers are 46% less likely to develop high blood pressure if they drink one-half to two-half cups a day. They are 65% less likely to develop high blood pressure if they drink more than 2 cups a day.

May Protects HeartA
2007 American study found that wu long tea reduces the blood concentrations of triglycerides (the most common form of fat that exists in the body) by a whopping 80% compared to rats on normal diet. Another 2001 Japanese study found that it reduces cholesterol after 1 month of regular drinking. A 2004 Japanese study conducted by Osaka City University found that wulong tea increases plasma adiponectin levels. Low levels of plasma adiponectin are associated with obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus and coronary artery disease (CAD). The study concluded that wulong tea may have beneficial effects on the progression of atherosclerosis in patients with CAD.

Assists Healthy Skin and Radiant glow, Reduce Acne, Brown Sports and Wrinkles.
In a new study published in the academic journal Archives of Dermatology, researchers from Japan's Shiga University of Medical Science found that the nutrients in this kind of tea may dramatically clear up skin eczema within just one month. Free radicals are damaging substances in your body caused by ultra-violet rays, chemical food additives, pollution and stress. As you grow older, the amount of free radicals within your body increases naturally. Unfortunately, research links these damaging substances to many signs of aging, including wrinkles, dark spots and certain diseases. In one 2004 study by Dr. Kenichi Yanagimoto and colleagues from the University of California, Davis, the nutrients in this kind of tea may elicit a remarkable 50 percent reduction in free radicals within just 15 days!

100% Natural & NourishingUnlike artificial "fat burners," wulong is natural and nourishing to your health. Many users report feelings of increased focus and well-being. Keep in mind, wulong does contain some caffeine, about as much as a cup of green tea but less than a cup of coffee.
