A slimmer figure is every girl's dream, especially in summer when they want to wear skimpy clothes. But losing weight is a tough task, and most people will quit the process because they can't stick to a diet or the physical exercise involved becomes too much for them.
Reserchers of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) suggest that some herbal teas may help ease the process due to their health-giving medical functions such as benefit spleen and promote urination.
Though eating too much is a direct cause of overweight for most people, a poor digestive and metabolism system also plays an important role.
Reserchers hold that the spleen is responsible for sending nutrients from the stomach to all the organs, and also for expelling excess fluid. If the spleen doesn't function well, excess fluid will collect and turn into fat. Fat collects not only on muscles, destroying a nice figure, but also on organs and in the blood, which can cause health problems.
Pathogenic dampness and stagnant water is usually what bothers the spleen, according to TCM Reserchers. Therefore, foods that help the spleen while promoting urination will help prevent fat gathering and promote dispelling it through metabolism.
Tea is one of the best choices. Most teas can help promote urination while some teas can even help prevent sugar and fat absorption, such as famous Pu'er and Oolong teas.
