- Boosts your metabolism, causing weight loss. Oolong tea helps you burn fat faster by raising your metabolism for up to two hours after drinking it.
- Lowers cholesterol. Organic oolong tea is known to reduce cholesterol levels and promote heart health. Because oolong tea is semi-oxidized, it produces a perfectly sized polyphenol molecule that is able to activate the enzyme lipase, which is known to dissolve body fat.
- Increases mental alertness. This magic drink is known to revitalize your mental alertness and performance, naturally, because it contains caffeine. Be careful if you are sensitive to caffeine and limit your consumption to one lightly steeped cup a day, or indulge a few times a week.
