This herbal tea can block your body’s sugar intake

If you’re like most people, when you see a piece of cake or get passed a dessert menu after a meal, it takes quite a lot of will power not to give into your cravings. You’re not alone, either. In fact, the average Brit consumes around 48kg of sugar each year – this exceeds the NHS’ recommended limit for adults of 30g of free sugars a day.

Free sugars are found in foods such as sweets, cakes, biscuits, and soft drinks or juices, and while we’ve become more aware of the health implications of consuming too much sugar, many of us actively try to reduce our consumption of these types of foods. But what if we could still indulge in our favourite treats while controlling our sugar in-take?

Not just another herbal tea, Wellfinitea Organic Green is a 100% organic, vegan tea that can help to control sugar cravings and blocks the absorption of sugar in the intestines and body.

Curb your sugar cravings

So how does it work? Wellfinitea Organic Green contains three key ingredients. The use of gymnema helps to improve blood sugar levels, assists weight maintenance, and increases effectiveness of insulin. What’s more, gymnema has an active ingredient called gymnemic acid, which blocks the sugar receptors on your taste buds, making sweet foods less appealing. Studies have shown that the active ingredient also blocks sugar in the intestines, lowering post-meal sugar levels.

Meanwhile, the addition of pandanus palm, which is commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine, helps to regulate blood sugar, while stevia acts as a natural sugar substitute.

Aside from helping to curb your sugar cravings, Wellfinitea Organic Green is rich in antioxidants and helps to support a healthy immune system, plus it’s caffeine free, making it an ideal addition to your night-time routine.

Simply steep one tea bag in a cup of water for 3-5 minutes; one bag can make up to 5-8 cups too, so you can drink the tea throughout the day!

Wellfinitea Herbal Organic Green Tea is available for £16.99 for a box of 10. Visit wellfinitea.co.uk to shop or find out more.
