Whenever I work with new clients who are interested in losing weight, I ask what they are drinking. Yes, I’m concerned with nutrition and exercise, but sometimes we conveniently forget the impact our beverages have on our hormones, weight and energy levels. I’m always recommending my clients drink tea to increase energy levels and metabolism, and today’s article will show you which tea is best and why.
A friend introduced me to an exotic tea a few years ago. Her husband is from Argentina, and he drinks something called Yerba Mate (pronounced “Erba Mottay”) every morning. So she let me try it, and I was instantly hooked. First, it’s gives your energy a boost without the “crash” later on, and the taste is refreshing. I was drinking it in loose-leaf form until I discovered that many popular, organic brands of tea, like Numi, sell it in a tea bag.
When I did more research on Yerba Mate, I learned that it also supports a healthy metabolism, helps increase focus and clarity, and contains antioxidants. It’s great for digestion and aids in weight loss. It’s also chock full of many different vitamins and contains polyphenols, and it’s more nutritious than plan green tea.
Drinking water and staying hydrated is essential to good health and is crucial when losing weight. But in addition to water, make your other beverage choice Yerba Mate and reap its amazing health benefits. If you’re currently drinking coffee, cut back a bit and substitute it with this tea. You’ll feel cleaner and have lasting energy when you get off the coffee and sip on something this nutritious.
Try Yerba Mate today and experiment with different brands to find one you love. Have it in the mornings. You will feel energized, healthy and vibrant from this purifying tea.
