Known for her fashion trends and trendy diets, Victoria Beckham is toasting to a new diet. Drinking tea for weight loss, Beckham is reportedly sipping Pu-erh tea to lose weight and keep her slimline figure.
Pu-erh tea (pronounced PU-ER) is nearly 2,000 years old and is known for it’s fat-burning and weight loss qualities. Tea for weight loss isn’t new and what makes Pu-erh tea popular among celebs like Beckham is it’s powers to attack and destroy bad cholesterol. According to Blush.com, it also helps to decrease saturated fat levels.
“This benefit exists in other teas as well,” says guest blogger Valerie Orsoni for Blush.com. “Most teas contain a certain quantity of theine (caffeine) and catechin, and these compounds play an interesting role in the metabolism of fats and act in synergy and have positive effects on cholesterol,” she adds, while recommending green tea if the taste of Pu-erh doesn’t personally do the trick.
