Chickweed herb and tea for weight loss
SOLD AS: Dried bulk tea, capsules, tincture.
WEIGHT LOSS PILL TYPE: Chickweed is a diuretic, laxative, and Appetite suppressant. The plant is widely regarded as a bothersome weed and can be found growing around the world. It is also known as Adder’s mouth, satin flower, and starwort.
BACKGROUND/RESEARCH: Merely anecdotal proof is accessible to back up claims that chickweed will work for weight loss, yet it is widely used in dietary products. It is also high in vitamin C, and it can be eaten raw or cooked, as you would spinach. Elements in chickweed called saponin glycosides give this herb relaxing characteristics for both internal use and topical use for skin problems.
WHAT IS IT SUPPOSED TO DO: Chickweed is rich in lecithin, an organic compound found in the cell membranes. Lecithin is a fat emulsifier, meaning it melts fats in watery fluids such as blood serum. It is believed that this enables the entire body to process and transfer body fat and thus help in weight loss, even though medical proof of this method is inadequate.
HOW TO TAKE IT: To make an infusion, professionals suggest pouring 16 ounces of boiling water over 1 ounce of dried chickweed and steeping for 15 minutes. The proposed dose is 3 or more cups daily. For the tincture, the advised dose is up to 60 drops in water daily. Chickweed can also be eaten raw in salads or cooked, like spinach. It is a rich source of vitamin C.
