Avicenna Weight Loss Tea

In the UK an estimated 60.8% of adults and 31.1 % of children are overweight. According to figures from 2009, almost a quarter of adults in England were classified as obese (BMI 30kg/m² or over). The problem now reaches epidemic proportions, and some experts believe obesity is responsible for more ill health than smoking.

Being significantly overweight is linked to a wide range of health problems, including:

Diabetes, Heart Disease, High Blood Pressure, Osteoarthritis, Joint Pains, Indigestion, Gallstones, Insomnia, Sleep Apnoea and Snoring, Stress, Anxiety and Depression, Allergies, Infertility, Premature Aging and even some Cancers (breast and prostate cancers).

A recent study conducted in Australia has shown that a simple combination of three Chinese herbs (traditionally used in foods) has considerable efficacy for weight loss.

A simple formula of three herbs (given the name RCM 104) was given to 117 obese people aged between 18 and 60 with remarkable effect. The subjects either took the combination of herbs or a placebo (inactive substance made to look like the real thing), and asked not to change their diet or their lifestyle habits.

After 12 weeks of use the group taking the herbs lost on average 1.5kgs (3.3lbs) of body weight, whilst the placebo group had gained 0.5kg (1.1lbs) in weight.

Compared to the placebo group, the subjects taking Chinese herbs showed lower BMI (Body Mass Index) and BFI (Body Fat Index), smaller waist circumference as well as significant improvement in shortness of breath and physical stamina.

The trial concluded that there were no relevant side effects to the prescription, that it was well tolerated and appears to be effective in reducing weight and improving quality of life.

Trying to lose weight?

Avicenna has now enhanced this prescription to maximise the health giving and fat metabolising properties of it’s ingredients by adding another two crucial ingredients that have long been used to regulate appetite, aid digestion and reduce the absorption of fat.

We use our own premium raw ingredients, they are combined and processed in our state of the art decoction equipment, which preserves the integrity of the materials whilst extracting up to 30% more actives.

The specifically chosen combination is high in anti-oxidants and polyphenols, and whilst each ingredient has properties making it suitable as a herbal tea with a slimming effect for weight maintenance, the interaction between the herbs is crucial to maximize the effects.

Our chosen five dietary herbs are an ideal formula for weight loss, as well as rebalancing a general state of wellbeing.

They accelerate lipid metabolism (burn fat more effectively), as well as slowing down the absorption of fat and carbohydrates, lowering blood pressure and high cholesterol, lowering blood lipids and help clear a fatty liver.

Drinking our tea does not require a change in diet or exercise to help you gradually loose weight over a period of time, but following a healthy and balanced diet, and an increase in physical activity remains crucial in achieving the goal of long term weight control and will be perfectly complemented by the use of Avicenna Weight Loss Tea.

If you already follow a diet to lose weight, drinking the tea regularly, can help to accelerate weight loss and greatly increase your feeling of wellbeing.
