This Tea Is Your Secret Weapon!

Consistent exercise and a diet high in protein but low in processed sugar will boost metabolism to burn fat naturally, even during sleep. 

So how can Peppermint Tea help blast fat and boost metabolism? 

Peppermint, an ingredient in Mint Mamaki, can help increase the body’s natural ability to burn fat.  “Peppermint tea helps in aiding weight loss, reduces heartburn, makes skin glow, induces sleep and provides satiety, further helping you lose weight.”   according to Dr. Simran Saini, a nutritionist with Fortis Hospital.

The other parts of the burn fat/boost metabolism equation are good hydration, stress reduction and adequate sleep.  Peppermint tea is a great zero calorie-zero sugar way to stay hydrated. Adds Dr. Saini, “There is barely any side effects of peppermint tea so you can drink it any time you want to.”

Menthol in peppermint acts as a muscle relaxant and calms the mind to help with stress relief.  The herb is also excellent at suppressing appetite. 

In the article, 8 Benefits to Peppermint Tea: From Inducing Sleep to Aiding Weight Loss and More!, Nutritionist and Macrobiotic Health Coach Shilpa Arora agrees, “Peppermint is a great concoction for metabolism and relieves excessive acidity. People with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) should have the tea at least 3-4 times to heal the gut.”

Dr. Saini recommends a cup of peppermint tea at night for those who sleep late for a more restful and sound sleep.
