Alternative Tea Options

As it gets colder the temptation to drink comforting cups of tea increases. On the Celebrity Slim Program we recommend drinking a maximum of 2-3 cups of tea or coffee per day, as the addition of milk and sugar increases your Calorie intake significantly, causing negative effects on your weight loss. Not all types of tea are high in Calories though, so we have compiled a list of our favourite tea variations and their benefits to you. Give them a try; you may discover a new favourite!

Green Tea

Green tea can lower cancer risks, cholesterol, blood pressure and tooth decay. Green tea increases metabolism, which aids weight loss. Green tea comes in a variety of flavours such as zesty lemon.

Black Tea

Black tea stimulates immunity to viruses, tames inflammation and prevents clogging of the arteries.

Ginseng Tea

Ginseng tea can provide improvement in thinking, accelerating reaction time and also increases resistance to stress. Ginseng tea increases circulation, which boosts resistance to viral infections and prevents disease.

White Tea

White tea can fight stroke by reducing the accumulation of cholesterol in the bloodstream, along with lowering blood pressure and improving the function of the arteries. White Tea contains high amounts of anti-bacterial and anti-viral agents, thereby promoting general well-being. White tea also promotes healthy teeth and gums and increases the strength of bones. Mix with pomegranate for extra flavour!

Chamomile Tea

Chamomile tea boosts the immune system and fights infections associated with colds and improves the functioning of the liver. Chamomile tea relieves muscle spasms and menstrual cramps in women and also relaxes the nerves, soothes the stomach, reduces inflammation, relieves back pain and rheumatism.

Nettle Tea

Not as drastic as it sounds! Nettle tea fights coughs, tuberculosis and asthma, along with counteracting arthritis, rheumatism, tendonitis and other disorders of the muscles and joints. Nettle tea combats a variety of intestinal disorders and allergies such as eczema and hay fever. Add blackcurrant or peppermint to tantalise the taste buds!
