10 healthy men who drank green tea increased their energy expenditure by 4%.
Another study by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2008 concluded
that drinking green tea can increase fat oxidation by an average of 17%.
South African Rooibos
Aspalathin, a unique flavonoid found in rooibos, was confirmed in a study to be
able to help lower raised blood sugar levels and also improve the metabolism of
glucose. With aspalathin, cells are able to more effectively use glucose.
Rooibos is also known to relieve stress and high blood pressure. In 2003, an article
published by the American Botanical Council stated that there are no other natural

Lemon is also a natural weight loss aid. In a 2008 study published by The Journal of Biochemical Nutrition, it was concluded that "supplementation with lemon polyphenols suppressed body weight gain and body fat accumulation by increasing the eroxisomal β-oxidation, which was likely mediated via up-regulation of the mRNA levels of PPARa in the liver. " Lemon supplementation was also recommended as it "may prevent or improve obesity and insulin resistance by modulating lipid metabolism.....caused by an excessively high fat diet".
Orange is a very popular fruit and orange trees are the most cultivated fruit trees in the world. With over 170 different phytochemicals and more than 60 flavnoids, it's not hard to see why. Due to its high vitaminc C content, it is often associated with boosting the immune system.
