Tea is essentially an infusion of vegetable leaves that contain some of the most potent natural anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substances known on earth. Regular drinking of tea, green or black, is associated with great health thanks to tea's high content of a catechin polymer called epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG.
Antioxidants are substances found in tea (and many other foods) that can prevent and slow the oxidative stress on the body which occurs naturally, but can be increased by things like exercise and a poor diet. There are many studies done on why antioxidants, especially those found in tea, are so beneficial for the body. But what most people really want to know is, can tea really help increase my metabolism? And the answer researchers keep finding is YES!
Studies comparing the fat burning properties of caffeine alone vs caffeine combine with EGCG show that the latter combination results in a 12% higher rate of fat burning, even when no exercise or other caloric restriction is present! That means that drinking tea even while sitting on the couch will help your body burn more fat! One study concluded tea's "thermogenic properties could reside primarily in an interaction between its high content in catechin-polyphenols and caffeine." This flies directly in the face of the "Calories in-calories out" model where fat burning can be increased only by increasing physical activity, which is why people have such a hard time accepting that tea can actually help you.
This synergistic fat-burning result between caffeine and EGCG explains why tea has a greater effect on weight loss than taking either caffeine or EGCGs alone, along with the other great benefits tea has on preventing inflammation, tea truly can be called a super fat-burning beverage!
So drink up!

Could it be true that tea is healthier to drink than water? Maybe wishes do come true...
In August of 2006, the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a review of tea-based studies conducted between 1990-2004, the results may astonish you:
1) Tea is not dehydrating. High doses of caffeine are dehydrating, but even very strong tea does not have nearly the caffeine necessary to dehydrate our bodies. Go ahead and fill your water bottle with the tea of your choice, green, white, black, oolong or pu'erh, and you will see and feel the difference that Dr. Carrie Ruxton explains surpasses filling your water bottle with water alone.
Dr. Ruxton, lead author of the study, told BBC news that she recommends drinking 48-64 ounces of fluid per day, and, she says "that can include tea." Most importantly, she told the BBC, "Drinking tea is actually better for you than drinking water. Water is essentially replacing fluid. Tea replaces fluid and contains antioxidants so it's got two things going for it."
2) Green Tea is not healthier than black tea, but both provide advantages over plain water. Both types of tea contain similar amounts of antioxidants, although they are of different types and amounts, green tea contains approx. 316 mgs. of flavonoids and black contains 268 mgs. Both teas provide the same health benefits in terms of antioxidant capacity.
Antioxidants quench the free radicals that are produced during daily exercises and chores, in fact our bodies are constantly oxidizing which produces free radicals. We help this process along by eating foods that are refined or fried in oils at super high heat. Our bodies are not designed to cope with so much free radical build up, once we go past a certain threshold our cells begin to age prematurely and this leads to the path of disease. We would have no hope at all if it weren't for antioxidants, they come to the rescue by destroying free radicals and slowing down the oxidation process, keeping our cells younger, longer.
3) Drinking three or more cups of tea per day (approx. 24 ounces) can reduce the risk of a wide range of health problems, ranging from heart disease to cancer to diabetes. Each type of tea contains a different type of flavonoid, and that starts to get pretty technical, but research shows that all are effective in scavenging free radicals and keeping you in good health. The Newport Skinny Tea program is 3 cups of tea per day, 2 of the daytime tea and one of the evening tea. While you are following the program, you can drink more plain tea, either caffeinated or decaffeinated and any variety you choose.
So do not be afraid to replace a good portion of your daily water intake with tea, and quickly replace any soda, juice or sugary beverage with tea, especially if you are trying to improve your health or lose weight. You are doing your body a huge favor in keeping it younger, healthier and hydrated. In upcoming blogs, we will discuss the numerous ways tea benefits your health, and if you aren't yet convinced that you should be drinking a lot of tea, you will be soon!
Tea + Detox Program = Teatox
A traditional detox program is not necessarily a weight loss program, but often weight loss is a result of following a detox diet, especially when using beneficial herbs along with the diet. A Newport Skinny Tea teatox is for a specific period of time during which herbs are used in a tea form for retraining our digestive systems to release excess water and waste materials and to deeply nourish tissues. The use of tea makes sticking to your diet far easier for several reasons discussed later.
Some of the more powerful detoxifying herbs in Newport Skinny Tea are: Cinnamon bark, Dandelion Leaf, Ginger Root and Slippery Elm Bark.
Cinnamon Bark is used to warm and energize the body, promoting sweating and stimulating circulation. Ginger Root has many of these same properties and also calms the stomach and reduces nausea, which can occur during a detox. Ginger can also soothe a sore throat, reducing inflammation and it helps build hydrochloric acid in the body, which aids in digestion of plant matter and stopping candida overgrowth in the body.
Dandelion is a major general health-building tonic and a great source of potassium. Used to clean the liver, it reduces congestion and improves the flow of bile, both which benefit digestion, allowing nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the body and allowing greater energy to flow. In the kidneys, dandelion enhances the flow of urine, helping to remove fluid trapped in the tissues, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Slippery Elm soothes the lining of the intestinal tract and aids in the expulsion of toxins by providing gentle laxative action.
Tea is an easy, effective way to curb hunger and give the body loads of great health benefits at the same time. Tea is very satisfying to our taste buds and helps break destructive snacking and compulsive eating patterns because it changes our habits. It only takes a couple of days to train yourself to reach for tea when you feel hungry instead of food and soon you’re craving it instead! Often we eat when we are actually thirsty, and reaching for tea allows us to rehydrate our bodies and retrain our hunger meters, as well.
It is a widely held myth that tea is dehydrating, it is actually large amounts of caffeine that are dehydrating, so feel free to reach for tea, hot or cold, whenever you want, limit your daily intake of Newport Skinny Tea to the recommended amount, 2 cups of the daytime tea and 1 cup of the evening tea. Use plain green, black or herbal teas at other times.
For thousands of years herbs have been used as healing agents, they are powerful and gentle at the same time. Treat herbs with the same respect that you would any drug or medicine, consulting your doctor to make sure they are safe for your individual needs.

Everything you put into your body will have either a positive or negative affect on your overall physical appearance. This is especially true when it comes to what you drink each day. Most people who are watching what they eat will end up consuming more calories because of their daily beverage choice increase their sugar and calorie intake. They use sweet beverages to curb their food cravings and they don’t realize how many calories they are actually drinking each day.
Here are a few helpful tips on how to drink your way to a better body:
- Drink More Water
There are so many incredible benefits to drinking water. Water is essential for digestion, skincare, blood flow, and weight loss. It also helps to flush toxins from your body and increase your energy level, plus it will make you feel full. The best part about drinking more water is that it has no calories. That is why it can help you achieve the better body that you desire. Adding lemon to your water will help your liver digest fats.
- Newport Skinny Tea
One of the easiest and most effective ways to drink your way to a better body is Newport Skinny Tea, we call this a teatox, or detoxing fast with tea. It is jam-packed with powerful ingredients designed to inspire good metabolism. The lotus leaf in Newport Skinny Tea helps break down fat, the rose hip in it is a mild laxative and diuretic designed to flush out toxins, and it has ginseng in it for increased energy. It also has Kokum rind which improves digestion and supresses the enzymes that converts excess calories into body fat. Newport Skinny Tea has both a morning and an evening blend that will keep you feeling full and satisfied all day long.
- Avoiding Sugary Drinks
If you want a better body, you need to start by replacing any sugary drinks you usually drink with water. So many people mistake fruit juices for being healthy choices. It is only good for you if it is 100% natural fruit juice with no added sugar.
- Limit Alcohol Consumption
There is nothing wrong with a glass or two of wine each week, but it should not be a regular occurrence if your ultimate goal is to develop a better body. Like most fruit juices, alcohol is high in sugar. In one night of drinking, most people can easily consume an entire day’s worth of calories. Try to save alcohol for special occasions and keep it to only a couple of drinks per night.
- Real Fruit Shakes & Smoothies
A filling and rewarding snack that you should allow in your daily diet is thick and creamy fruit smoothies. They make the perfect breakfast and they will help ensure your body is getting all the nutrients and antioxidants it needs. Keeping your smoothie low sugar is wise.

Remove Any Temptations

Progress does not always show on the scale. You can end up being disappointed with what you see and it may make you give up on your weight loss goals completely.

This will help you stick with your weight loss efforts until you can see noticeable changes in your body.
