The wonder tea that helps you lose weight while you sleep

Weight loss is a difficult subject because different lifestyle changes work for different people and there is certainly no magic pill (or tea) to

makes you lose weight. However, new research reveals the fascinating way our bodies interact with what we eat or drink, and sometimes this interaction takes place in our fat cells.

Recent research from Japan, published in revista Nutrients, focused on oolong tea and how it affects weight loss. It does not stop working when the person falls asleep and continues to trigger metabolism during sleep, according to

The research was conducted by a team from the University of Tsukuba, Japan, led

by Professor Kumpei Tokuyama. They tested three groups of healthy volunteers, who drank either Oolong tea, pure caffeine or a placebo, for a period of two weeks.

Thus, volunteers who drank Oolong tea or caffeine burned 20% more fat. But of all the drinks, only Oolong continued to have effects during sleep.

“The stimulating effects of Oolong tea on the breakdown of fat during sleep could have real clinical relevance for body weight control,” said Professor Kumpei Tokuyama.

“Like all teas,

Oolong contains caffeine, which affects energy metabolism by increasing heart rate, ”said Tokuyama. However, studies suggest that regular tea consumption can speed up the melting of fats, regardless of the effects of caffeine.

What is oolong tea?

In Chinese, Oolong means “black dragon”. It’s just that Oolong is not a black tea, it is somewhere between “black teas” and “green teas”. Oolong tea is widely consumed in China, but the appetite for this type of tea has increased significantly in Japan, USA and Europe.


The increase in Oolong infusion is due not only to the pleasant taste that different specialties have, but also to the special benefits that this type of tea has on those who consume it. It is a tea full of antioxidants, due to the fact that Oolong tea leaves contain catechins and caffeine, which combine their forces to combat the effects of free radicals, those atoms that cause wrinkles ahead of time and because of which we have to spend a lot of money on creams. which have no effect.
