Lower Your Cholesterol with KONI Puerh tea!
Lower Your Cholesterol and Blood Pressure with KONI Caramel Slender, Caramel Slim, and Kick the Coffee Pu-erh teas!
* KONI Kick the Coffee, a Pu-erh tea, is widely used as an after-meal beverage due to its famed ability to break fat, lower bad cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and thus contribute to smooth digestion.
The Chinese believe that Pu-erh has even greater health properties than other teas. From a Chinese Medical point of view, Pu-erh invigorates the Spleen, disinhibits dampness, clears Stomach heat, descends Stomach qi and counteracts alcohol toxins. Pu-erh’s ability to aid fat metabolism has lead to claims that it can assist in weight loss regimes.
* Antioxidants called flavonoids, found in pu-erh, are considered to be responsible for the reduction in blood pressure, hardening of the arteries and the amount of LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol in the blood stream found in tea drinkers (Preventive Medicine 2002;36:64-70).
* University of California scientists discovered that the caffeine in coffee is bound with coffee bean oils, which raise cholesterol levels.
In contrast, research indicates that drinking tea lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.
