Weight Loss With Herbalife Nutrition: Is Herbalife Tea a Fat Burner

We live in an era in which liquid calories are the leading contributor to overweight worldwide and sugary soft drinks are the leading source of added sugars in the American diet. Healthy, zero-calorie beverages are more important than they have ever been before for helping people control their weight. The enticing tea varieties from Herbalife Nutrition offer an alternative to overindulgence in sweet drinks that pack on the pounds, each with nutritional value all its own.

Herbalife Nutrition features Herbal Tea Concentrate as the anchor of its tea blends Herbalife Herbal Tea Concentrate is a blend of black tea, green tea, and orange pekoe extract brewed and dried for instant tea.

We can all appreciate the relaxing ritual of drinking a hot cup of delicious tea. On long, hot summer afternoons, we can all appreciate a cooling glass of sugar-free iced tea. Herbalife Herbal Tea Concentrate gives a slight boost to the metabolism that gives you a little more get up and go, with a variety of flavors to satisfy your taste buds, including Original, Chai, Cinnamon, Lemon, Peach, and Raspberry flavors. Herbalife Herbal Tea Concentrate is an antioxidant-packed way to stay hydrated any day of the year.

Herbalife makes a tea for every energy level. Herbalife Nature’s Raw Guarana (N-R-G) Tea provides a wake-you-up flavor with enough caffeine to improve energy and focus.

Herbalife Green Tea, in contrast, is a tea for calm relaxation. It provides a deep green tea flavor with just 25 mg of caffeine, along with a healthy serving of antioxidants — and Herbalife Calming Tea is a herbal blend specially selected to help you de-stress at the end of a long day.

But will any Herbalife Tea help you lose weight? Is any Herbalife tea really a fat burner?

There are two things to understand about how tea helps the people who drink it lose weight:

1. Certain antioxidant compounds that appear in green tea, black tea, and orange pekoe extract called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, support fat-burning. 

2. The effects of EGCG are canceled out by consuming more than 400 mg of caffeine per day.

Let’s put that second fat about tea and fat burning in context first. There is about 95 mg of caffeine in a cup of coffee. About 4-1/2 cups of coffee per day would cancel out the benefits of tea for fat burning. But it would take 16 cups of Herbalife Green Tea to produce that problem.

If you don’t drink lots of coffee, it’s possible to enjoy the fat-burning benefits of all kinds of tea. But how does tea help the body burn fat?

Think of EGCG as “extremely good cell guardians.” These antioxidants in tea target a protein in the cell membrane known as laminin. By interacting with laminin, EGCG activates segments of DNA that produce the RNA that codes the proteins that become fat-burning enzymes. EGCG also interferes with adipogenesis, the production of new fat cells. It interacts with muscle cells, so they prefer to burn fatty acids over burning sugar. It turns active muscle cells into fat burners.

But it’s important to pay attention to the term “active” muscle cells. Tea doesn’t burn fat. You do! You still have to get the exercise that burns the fat that you want to lose. Tea shifts the balance of certain cell-level processes, so you burn fat instead of sugar when you work out to lose weight.

When you get sensible exercise and keep your calorie consumption under control, Herbalife Tea adds to the assurance that your hard work and sticking to your diet will succeed.
