kurus dgn teh?

We've already heard a gajillion times about the numerous benefits of green tea, but did you know that these teas also have many health benefits that aren't talked about as often:

1. chammomile tea
2. hibiscus tea (common in most "herbal teas")

*Chammomile*
In fact, I just read a study the other day that indicated chammomile tea can help to control blood sugar levels (which can help diabetics but also non-diabetics too), and more stable blood sugar levels can possibly help you to lose body fat as well.

I've also seen theories that some of the natural compounds in chammomile tea can help to counteract the effect of estrogenic pesticides and other chemicals that our bodies encounter through our food supply and environment.

Since chammomile tea also is known as a calming or relaxing tea, I try to have my daily cup of chammomile tea an hour or so before bedtime each night.

*Hibiscus*
As for Hibiscus tea (usually the main ingredient in many "herbal" teas), I also recently read a study that shows a mild, but helpful reduction in blood pressure from drinking hibiscus tea daily. The study I read about for hibiscus tea was presented at an American Heart Association conference:

"The findings show that the volunteers who drank hibiscus tea had a 7.2 point drop in their systolic blood pressure, compared to a 1.3 point drop in the volunteers who drank the placebo beverage". *Other teas - green, white, black, oolong, red, mate, etc*

Don't be lazy... be lean.
