JiViSa, a wellness brand that believes in the healing powers of nature, tries to search for answers from nature. In this quest, we were able to develop the Oolong blend, which we believe is one the most healthy route for sustainable weight loss. Keep reading to find out more about this offering from JiViSa.
The Oolong Blend is a unique infusion of Himalayan Oolong leaves with ayurvedic herbs and spices like Ginger, Cinnamon, Dandelion Root, Turmeric, Orange peel, Lemon grass and Rose petals. A cup of this offering is loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, improving the health of the body, mind and soul.
Now, let's go a little bit through the benefits of each of these ingredients to know the real contribution that they can do to your health:
Oolong is created when the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant are wilted in the sun and slightly bruised to create partial oxidation. A cup of brewed oolong tea contains calcium, magnesium, potassium, antioxidants and small amounts of caffeine. The combination of caffeine and polyphenols found in oolong tea may help increase specific enzyme inhibition, enzymes that play a role in metabolizing fat cells in the body, thus controlling the overall rate of the body’s metabolism and the number of calories burned each day. This
could ultimately aid in weight loss. The other benefits of regular consumption of Oolong tea include improved insulin resistance for diabetes patients, decreased inflammation, improved brain functioning, increase in bone mineral density and calming of Eczema.
Ginger contains compounds called Gingerols and Shogaols. These compounds stimulate several biological activities in the body. They have an anti-obesity effect, helping food to digest faster and stimulating the body to speed digested food through the colon. The other benefits provided by the regular consumption of ginger include regulation of blood sugar levels, control of free radicals, regulation of Cortisol (the stress hormone), increased energy, decreased risk of heart diseases, improved memory and brain functions and an overall improvement in the functioning of the immune system.
Cinnamon is great at improving digestion and overall gut health, providing relief from diarrhea, flatulence, and irritable bowel syndrome. Cinnamon can also help in controlling appetite and boosting metabolism, thereby helping in weight management.
Dandelion root has many positive effects on the digestive system. It has historically been used to improve appetite, soothe minor digestive ailments, and possibly relieve constipation. This ingredient also helps in lowering fat absorption and reducing bloating.
Turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory capacity mostly related to its compound curcumin may play a role in weight loss. Obesity leads to inflammation, which increases the risk of developing chronic diseases, including diabetes and heart disease. Curcumin, which is an antioxidant, suppresses the inflammatory messaging in fat, pancreatic and muscle cells. This can help reduce high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high blood sugar and other metabolic conditions.
Orange peels are rich in important nutrients, such as fiber, vitamin C, and polyphenols. Plant compounds called polyphenols may help prevent and manage many chronic conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, obesity, and Alzheimer’s disease.
The benefits of consumption of Lemongrass include reduction of excess water weight from the body, enhancement of sleep, regulation of cholesterol and better immunity.
Rose petals are rich in polyphenols, such as gallic acid, anthocyanins, kaempferol, and quercetin. These antioxidants help neutralize free radicals and contribute to a glowing and radiant complexion. The other benefits provided by this ingredient include the release of oxidative stress from cells, detoxification and anti-aging benefits.
Hence, it is safe to say that JiViSa’s Oolong Tea blend is great at weightloss, and also at providing various other added health benefits.
