Pu-erh Tea has long been valued in Chinese herbalism for its vast benefits. Pu-erh tea (pronounced ‘poo-air’) contains high levels of polyphenols (flavonoids, catechins and theaflavin), which are known for their antioxidant activity. These powerful chemicals speed up fat burning as well as reduce stress and heavy metal consumption due to the cell repair compounds found within. The theanine and flavoids found within pu-erh just so happen to aid in digestion after meals by acting as a sponge and accelerator for fat burning.

However, of the five main types of tea (white, green, oolong and black being the others), pu-erh stands apart from every other one as its tea leaves go through a natural fermentation process before the tea is gently dried. This not only creates a cup with zero astringency and deep, rich body, but this fermentation process also helps produce micro-organisms which are being shown to be particularly beneficial to the human body.

Reduction in Cholesterol

New studies with pu-erh tea and health benefits have made a startling discovery; the microbial aging of pu-erh tea can result in the production of small amounts of lovastatin, a natural statin. In the synthetic form, lovastin is commonly used to treat high cholesterol. Additional studies have shown that long term use of appropriate amounts of pu-erh teas have the potential to lower LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and increase HDL levels (the good cholesterol). There have also been some cases where extensive use of pu-erh has resulted in a drop of nearly 100 points in cholesterol levels. Please note, if you have a medical condition such as high cholesterol, please consult with your doctor and follow their treatment guidelines.

Cleansing

In traditional Chinese herbalism, pu-erh tea is considered to open the meridians, ‘warm the middle burner’ (the spleen and stomach) and be beneficial to ‘blood cleansing’ and digestion. Many things that are found in our diet, even healthy foods, contain acids and other free radicals that can build up in the body over time. These deposits then get transferred throughout the body in the blood, making it beneficial to consume pu-erh tea to help cleanse the blood of toxins. The micro-organisms and unique simple sugars that are produced from the pu-erh fermentation process have been shown to attack the toxins in the blood, removing them from the body and creating a healthier you.

Aids in Digestion

The stomach and intestines break down food through a combination of acids and healthy bacteria. The micro-organisms that are present in pu-erh tea have shown to increase the healthy bacterial flora in the stomach and intestines, which may aid in proper digestion of foods. For this reason, it has been found beneficial to consume pu-erh tea after heavy meals to aid in better digestion.
