7 Teas That Suppress Appetite, Kill Pain and Give You More Energy

You probably already know that sipping tea is great for your health, but with so many different types out there, how do you know what to choose?

Most teas offer some type of health benefit, but there are some that particularly stand out – not only packing a punch when it comes to supporting good health, but also bringing pleasure with fabulous flavors and aromas.

To help you choose the right one – and, you really can’t go “wrong,” with any of these, here is a look at the amazing benefits of seven teas that I’ve handpicked as some of the very best for a variety of health and wellness needs.

1. No Pain Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea, harvested from the South African red bush plant, is rich in antioxidants which are important for protecting healthy cells from free radical damage which can help fight against a host of disease, including some cancers and heart disease.

Due to its high antioxidant levels, it’s also considered to be anti-inflammatory – reducing inflammation also has an impact on battling illness and disease, and it can also help the body recover after a hard workout.

In addition to the benefits derived from the rooibos tea itself, ginger and turmeric has been added to make it an extra-potent inflammation and pain fighter.

2. Coconut Black Tea

Black tea is one of the most popular teas available today. During the processing stage, black tea is fermented and oxidized, which provides its unique color, flavor, and health benefits that are so widely known.

This energizing tea contains caffeine along with a stimulating substance known as theophylline. Both are known to make you feel more alert.

The tea is also loaded with antioxidants called polyphenols that can help protect your cells from DNA damage.

Research has found that drinking black tea can also help reduce bad cholesterol levels. Drinking three to four cups of the tea each day can put you at a lower risk for heart problems.

This tea also contains healthy-for-you coconut, making it extra flavorful.

3. Sunny Green Tea

This tasty green tea infused with papaya and pineapple not only boosts energy levels, but it offers a wealth of health benefits.

Green tea has been found to enhance cognitive function, reduce blood sugar levels and lessen the risk of many different types of cancers.

It’s also loaded with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins that function as potent antioxidants, helping to reduce the formation of free radicals in the body as well as to protect cells and molecules from damage.

In addition to all of that, a recent study found that by drinking green tea regularly, it can boost the effects of exercise, aiding in weight loss efforts!

Three substances in the tea are believed to help promote weight loss, including the catechins, theanine and caffeine, which work together to block enzymes responsible for fat storage.

4. Evening Solace Herbal Tea

When you need a tea to help you relax, this herbal tea with chamomile, mint and just a hint of fruit, is outstanding for allowing you to get the rest you need to recover from the day.

Chamomile is a well-known herb for promoting rest and relaxation, it can even help you sleep better by inducing a feeling of calm.

5. Chocolate Haze Mate Tea

Mate contains xanthines, a class of chemical compounds that includes caffeine as well as theophylline and theobromine, the stimulants in tea and chocolate.

This traditional South American brew is not only energy boosting, providing a state of alert wakefulness similar to that of coffee but without the side effects, it’s known to aid in delivering oxygen to the muscles, making it an especially effective tea to sip before working out.

Mate has also been shown in research to delay onset of lactic acid in the muscles, something you may know as “the burn.” By delaying “the burn,” this allows you to workout longer, increasing the body’s ability to burn more fat.

6. Cherry White Tea

This tea is a healthy white and green tea blend. You’ll enjoy all of the wondrous benefits of green tea, along with the benefits of white tea, which also offers antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

Additionally, some studies suggest that consuming white tea may help to prevent adipogenesis, which is the process of the formation of fat cells.

This fabulously flavored tea also contains cherries, known to fight inflammation, healthy-for-you coconut chips and replenishing rose buds.

7. Oatmeal Raisin Black Tea

When you’re craving something sweet and want to enjoy all of the benefits of black tea, this one is ideal.

It not only contains a flavorful blend of raisins, cloves and currants, but cinnamon, a natural appetite suppressant! A perfect way to fight off those midday munchies.
