Herbal Tea for Weight Loss
While tea in general helps maintain one’s weight, limited research has found that herbal teas may help reduce weight and increase fat loss. This finding, although limited in stats, have been found true with many herbal teas despite their ingredients and combination – which makes stocking up different herbal teas worth it!
Herbal Tea for Pregnancy
Rooibos has been found to be great for pregnant mothers, however there still seems to be confusion over drinking herbal tea. One of the main reasons is because many are concerned about the possibility of caffeine passing through the placenta when consuming it. However, busting one myth at time, the EFSA report has found that only very high doses of caffeine, which could not be achieved by consuming tea, could have an effect on the foetus. And yet, as a precaution, they have recommended a daily caffeine intake to 200 mg (four cups of tea) per day during pregnancy. With rooibos infusions containing zero tea, herbal teas truly make the best cuppa during pregnancy. As to which one is best, truly depends on one’s mood as there are many herbal tea types to accommodate each emotion depending on the ingredients that have been combined.
