appetite tea with teabag


Are you searching for a appetite suppressant tea to cure all of these addictive sweet cravings? At Begu we have put together information in assisting you to identify and determine what are the most important factors to consider when searching for a tea that suppresses your appetite. Although there is little scientific evidence suggesting that tea is the most successful method for suppressing appetite it has been categorised as an effective method to shed those unwanted pounds and maintain a healthy body and lifestyle. However, it is also vital to consider that if consumed excessively negative implications may occur.


With a extensive range of herbal teas designed to suppress appetite within the market, there is no denying that competition is high. Appetite suppressant teas are highly effective in curing the need to have large food portions (which we are all guilty of having at some stage and in particular within our favourite meal). The herbal ingredients used in the appetite tea are chosen to reduce portion sizes and the desire to eat frequently/excessively. Tea also suppress the appetite through contributing to two hormones within the body (Norepinephrine and Dopamine), these hormones activate the nervous system which will in return reduce the desire to consume large quantities of food.


With so many ingredients out there and often so little understanding of their purpose, health benefits and the way in which they are consumed, it is vital to understand the importance of these ingredients and their health benefits when it comes to suppressing your appetite.  The ingredients below are three key ingredients that we feel will suppress appetite effectively, medically and in line with maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Green Tea - research indicates that it is an effective natural appetite suppressant 

Various mechanisms may be at work to achieve this:

green tea's effect on the two peptide hormones (catecholamines) - dopamine and norepinephrine, which activate the sympathetic nervous system; one of the known effects being reduction in desire for food. Scientific studies postulate that the primary compound ECGC in green tea inhibits the breakdown of an enzyme that would in turn breakdown these catecholamines. As a result of this, it is thought that green tea can contribute to lowering appetite.

green tea's increase in production of CCK, a hormone released in the intestines after the consumption of a meal, which tells the brain that the body has received adequate amounts of food. The release of this hormone immediately reduces appetite.

Additionally, it is thought that the antioxidant (catechin and caffeine) founded in Chinese green tea play a crucial role in aiding weight loss through the ability to burn frequent calories by increasing the speed in which the metabolism function works within the body.

Psyllium Seeds - a fuller feeling for longer

Psyllium seeds contain a spongy fibre that is used to reduce appetite, improve digestion and cleanse the system.

The natural bulking properties found in psyllium seeds mean they work as a great aid for those individuals seeking to lose weight. 

They are a natural source of fibre and a great aid for overall digestive health.

Peppermint - an aromatic aid in weight control

There are many benefits of peppermint, including a possible link to appetite suppression and associated aid in weight loss. A study in volunteers inhaling the scent alone every 2 hours showed the smell of peppermint alone caused the effect on appetite and eating less overall.

Scent can affect the area of the hypothalamus in the brain that registers satiety, and trigger hormonal release that suppresses appetite. As the sense of smell greatly affects taste, it is plausible that scent might cause you to eat less.


Since every individual is unique, there is no typical rule for when you should have it. At Begu we highly recommend that you drink the appetite tea throughout the day as and when you feel you need to. By doing so, you are tailoring your needs to be more personal and will allow you body to adapt accordingly to the healthy lifestyle you wish to maintain.
