One of my neighbour and my sister friend had successfully lost few pounds by drinking green tea. That's why my sister also started drink green tea for weight loss and she also noticed that she started to lose some weight without changing her daily diet. But when she stopped drinking green tea she gain back the lost weight. So that means you may lose some weight by drinking green tea but you have to make it a habit. If you stop you will regain the lost weight.

The average adult human body is comprised of Water: 35 liters, Carbon: 20 kg, Ammonia: 4 liters, Lime:1.5 kg, Phosphrus: 800 g, salt: 250g, saltpeter:100g, Sulfer: 80g, Fluorine: 7.5 g, iron: 5.6 g, Silicon: 3g, and 15 other elements in small quantities…. For that matter, the elements found in a human being is all junk that you can buy in any market with a child’s allowance. Humans are pretty cheaply made” catchy lines from novel Alchemist, These may not be accurate but some extent its true, something interesting to think is these elements reacts with others and cause harmful effects to our body then these are called toxins.

What are Toxins?

A toxin is defined as any substance that causes harmful effects to your body. Our immune system, liver and kidneys remove toxins at some rate, when they exceed beyond capacity they store in our body. when these toxin levels become too high you will fell into diseases. Toxins come from environmental sources, lifestyle habits, internal toxins created by the body and even your emotions.

Some examples for daily toxin exposure

  • Meat: Most of the animals are kept in insanitary under inhumane conditions. In order to prevent animals falling sick and other infections antibiotics are given very often. When we consume that animal’s meat there is high possibility of affecting our resistance system of body, which results in prolonged diseases.
  • Colored Soft Drink: Many soft drinks are mixed with chemicals to get their colors. These will show profound affect to our intelligence and thinking power. Frequent consumption of these drinks will have a serious effect on senses of knowledge.
  • Fats and Oils: Food product companies use hydrogenated oil to preserve for long time. This hydrogenated oil is commonly found in foods that also have saturated fats. For example foods like packed snacks, baked food, 2-min instant food, coffee creamers etc… This causes a range of health problems, including increased inflammation, higher risk of cancer and diabetes and weight gain.
  • Health and beauty products: Triclosan is an anti-bacterial chemical which is used in many health and beauty products like shampoos, Face creams, soaps, toothpaste and shampoos. Although it is potential for antibiotic resistance it has some major side effects like decrease in hormone levels and increase in cancer risk. All of these effects mean you should check to see if any of your toiletries contain this anti-bacterial chemical and consider it carefully when buying these items.
  • Steroids and Pesticides: Along with pesticides, steroids have also become a common addition to many meats, as a lot of farmers use the hormone to increase the amount of meat they can get out of their livestock. This can be a problem as the steroid levels can build up in your body, which means that they can exert the same ill effects personal steroid consumption. Pesticides are widely used in plant treatment and to kill pests in agriculture They are toxic, and exposure to pesticides can not only cause a number of health effects, but is linked to a range of serious illnesses and disease in humans, from respiratory problems to cancer.
There are many harmful we were exposed to in your daily life. Whether this is through food, liquid or health care products and toiletries, care should be taken to limit your exposure to these chemicals.

Herbal Tea’s:

There are several kinds of tisanes (herbal teas) that have been used for their medicinal properties.

  • Achieving a more calm and relaxed state of mind
  • Supporting heart health
  • Aiding with stomach and digestive problems
  • Providing cleansing properties for the body

  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Providing antioxidants to the body
  • Boosting energy levels and invigorating the body
  • Relieving stress
  • Helping to avoid colds
  • Stimulating the internal organs
  • Promoting a good night’s sleep
  • Sarsaparilla – promotes energy and healthy skin.
  • Slippery elm – helps to relieve stomach cramps

  • Caffeine free and tastes great.

I agree with you and recommend it

If you have a link to the study it'd be interesting to read it & see what they did & what they found.

I like this article.give a nice information about weight lose

I've been reading a lot about how it helps to burn belly fat. I really don't know what's taken me so long to start drinking this amazing leaf. One study says that it's better than drinking just plain water. Amazing.

Anybody drinking it for weight loss?
