White Tea Weight Loss
The Pros and Cons

Does white tea weight loss work? What are its advantages and disadvantages?

In my childhood days, grandmother often told me stories about life in the wretched 50s and 60s. There was little rice to eat, just lots of sweet potato porridge. There was some meat every few months, to be shared among so many hungry children.

Little would she imagine the obesity crisis facing the 21st century.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that 6 out of 10 Americans were either overweight or obese. East Asian children do not fare that well either.

What can be easier, healthier, more accessible than drinking tea to lose weight? The good news is - it has been proven to work in a number of ways:

  • white tea weight lossIncrease metabolism

  • Burn fat

  • Block dietary fat absorption 

  • Prevent fat storage

  • Regulate glucose usage

With so many different types of tea available, consumers often need to make an informed choice.

What are the pros and cons of white tea compared to the other teas?

White Tea Weight Loss Pros and Cons #1:
Scientific Backing

If you are looking for scientific credentials, then green tea is the most credible by a long way. Oolong tea comes second.

There are only a handful of white tea studies published in the West. So far, I am only aware of one study demonstrating its anti-obesity properties.

But don’t let this stop you. White tea is likely to help you lose weight.

Why? Because it contains high levels of caffeine and EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) - the two compounds proven to promote weight loss.

Verdict: Too early to say, but is likely to have significant weight loss benefits.

White Tea Weight Loss Pros and Cons #2:
Other Health Benefits

There are many types of tea, but none is linked to so many health benefits as green tea.

While weight loss is a "slow burn" effect, drinkers often noticed quick improvements in cholesterols, triglycerides (the blood fat) and visceral fats measurements.

White tea studies are still at an early stage. I have only tracked down a handful of them.

Preliminary studies have found it to be even more effective than green tea in preventing cancer and killing germs.

Verdict: Too early to say, but look very promising.

White Tea Weight Loss Pros and Cons #3:
Food Safety

If environmental pollution is an issue for you, then the Silver Needle white tea should be your top draw.

It is made from the youngest tea shoots, and consists of just tea buds.

Tea plants tend to accumulate minerals from soil and water. Being just a few days old, these tea buds are very pure, and contains the highest concentration of nutrients.

Verdict: The Silver Needle is one of the cleanest, purest high grade teas grown on earth.

White Tea Weight Loss Pros and Cons #4:

White tea tastes more like green tea than darker teas such as oolong or black tea.

A high quality white tastes deliciously sweet. It never gets over-extracted, and exudes a slight fruity aroma.

Being less "cooked", it may lack the complex flavor of the very best green tea, but is still very pleasant to enjoy.

It is "cooling" tea, and is a good tea to ice during the summer.

Verdict: A great summer drink. A high grade white will keep you enchanted for years to come.
