How to use this tea for weight loss and support digestion…
This Matcha Lemon-Ginger tea can be drunk hot if desired by mixing with milk and water and then heated. However, what we have found to be the most effective way to incorporate it into your weight loss regime is to add about 2 tsp to 1 Tbsp of the tea blend per 12 ounces of water and drink throughout the day. Drink a few ounces 15-30 minutes before meals to suppress appetite and help break down the fats in your meal. Drink 15-30 minutes after a meal to increase digestion and aid in cleansing. Drink a few ounces every hour to increase your metabolism and keep your hunger controlled. There is no need to add any milk – tastes great simply mixed with water. Make a double batch in a large water bottle and take it on the go.
Lemon Peel…Enhances digestionImproves bad breathePromotes weight loss
Lemon peel is another gift from nature that has been known for its ability to aid in digestion and even bad breathe because it can destroy bacteria in the intestines and the mouth.
Lemon peel can influence natural weight loss due to its high citric acid content. This citric acid present in lemon peel improves the conversion of stored fat and improves circulation.
How is it sweetened?
Coconut Palm Sugar….the wonder sugar
Organic Coconut Palm Sugar is derived from the sweet nectar of the sugar blossoms that grow at the top of the tropical coconut palm tree (Cocos Nucifera). Traditional local farmers climb high into the canopy of swaying coconut trees and harvest this sweet nectar by gently slicing open the flower. This nectar is then converted into its traditional crystalline form through boiling the watery sap that drips from the cut flower buds of fresh coconuts.
Coconut Palm Sugar is naturally low on the Glycemic Index (GI), which is important to those who are concerned about weight control and diabetes. Coconut Palm Sugar is rated on the glycemic index at 35, whereas honey is 55 and typical cane sugar is 68.
The low glycemic index of coconut sap sugar is especially helpful as a healthier alternative to those who are pre-diabetic and/or diabetic; unlike all sugar cane based sweeteners (refined white sugar, brown sugar, muscovado sugar, turbinado sugar, demarara sugar, sucanant sugar, molasses and dehydrated cane juice sweeteners) --- all of which have a high glycemic index rating between 65 to 100 per serving!
Coconut Palm Sugar delivers a slow release of energy, which sustains the human body through the daily activities without experiencing the "highs" and "lows" so often associated with cane sugar. Coconut Palm Sugar also has a nutritional content far richer than any other commercially available sweetener. It is particularly high in Potassium, Magnesium, Zinc and Iron. It is also a natural source of vitamins B1, B2, B3, B6 and C.
