Our Teas contains alkaloids that may help promote weight loss. Certain alkaloids may increase lipolysis, or the mobilization and breakdown of fatty acids for energy in your body, according to Louise Tenney, author of “Today’s Herbal Health.” Mobilizing fat stores from adipose tissue, or fat cells, to your muscles for energy boosts your metabolism and preserves muscle glycogen, increasing your body’s natural fat-burning capability. When consumed on a regular basis, may promote the reduction of body fat with few side effects.
Our teas contain compounds that provide a stimulatory effect on your body, similar to caffeine, that can boost energy and mental focus, notes Tenney. This tea contains a compound called inulin, a type of naturally occurring polysaccharide produced in some plants that provide a stimulatory effect. The stimulatory effect of our tea is similar to coffee, but it works through different cellular mechanisms due to the lack of caffeine in the brew

DIGESTION AND ALTITUDE SICKNESS
This tea has been used in South America for centuries to reduce the gastrointestinal distress associated with indigestion and altitude sickness. Drinking tea and chewing on leaves may alleviate symptoms of altitude sickness, including nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, and vomiting. This effect may be due to the presence of various alkaloids as well as several B vitamins, which may help improve blood flow and oxygen uptake at high altitudes.
