Rooibos has also helped my skin look better and my nails grow longer. Tea is definitely an appetite suppressant for me and I now often enjoy tea instead of an unhealthy snack. For me, tea can make me feel energized, comforted, relaxed, depending on the type of tea I drink and the time of day. I do believe I will be a tea drinker for many, many years to come.

Still, at the very least I am consuming far more liquids than I used to, which is a benefit in of itself. I'm more regular and I'm controlling my appetite MUCH better.
I'm finding it's really helping me stay on program with my weight loss regime. Where this is do to the fact that tea is known to raise metobolic rate and increase fat oxidation, or if it's just because I'm filling my stomach with liquids and that's helping feel less hungry, I'm not sure. But who cares as long as it's working!!
