Java tea is made from a herb called Misai Kucing or ‘Cat’s Whiskers’.
A medicinal plant grown in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, Java tea has been drunk in this region for centuries for its health benefits.
As well as being a powerful antioxidant, therefore aiding the body with the removal of unwanted waste molecules, Java tea has been seen to help flush the urinary system due to its mild diuretic properties.
The tea can therefore help with problems such as swelling and kidney stones.
Other possible health benefits linked to Java include antihypertensive and anti-inflammatory properties which has led to people surmising it may help with problems such as gout, hypertension and rheumatism.
The new tea blend from Natur Boutique (Green Tea Diet Blend) takes the properties of Java tea and combines them with two other ingredients, Green tea and Liquorice, to produce a drink that has real health benefits
Green tea is perhaps one of the world’s most readily available medicinal plant extracts and has long been used as a gentle stimulant, a potent antioxidant, astringent, and diuretic.
Perhaps most widely reported though is modern research, that has found that green tea can help boost the body’s metabolism which in turn aids weight loss.
Green tea has more than three hundred biologically active substances with the most important compounds among them thought to be catechins, which in recent studies have been found to be the components in the tea that help to reduce body fat.
Green tea has also been seen to be to help lower appetite by preventing a sudden rise in glucose levels, and help weight loss by promoting fat oxidation.
As well as these two ingredients the blend also contains Liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra).
The sweet flavour the root imparts offers a diet friendly sweetness to the tea and, like green tea, it is also thought to be able to help with weight loss by reducing fat acclumilation.
Combined, the benefits of these three plants come together and are being marketed as a tea product that, if drunk daily could help boost consumers health and help them to lose weight within 3-4 weeks.
The company also sell Artichoke Tea, which they claim contains properties that aid digestion, a range of other herbal teas, natural remedies and natural clothing.
