Hydroxycitric (HCA) acid can be found naturally in hibiscus which is used to make a refreshing tea ? This is the same acid that was manufactured chemically in labs to create Hydroxycut, but the natural source is safe, healthy and a million times more beneficial to the body.

Hibiscus tea affects how we absorb fats and carbohydrates because it contains phaseolamin, a powerful enzyme inhibitor that blocks amylase, the enzyme responsible for breaking down fats and carbohydrates. Hibiscus tea acts in the same way as the drugstore-pill versions, but remains in its natural, unadulterated form and is much safer and more beneficial for the body than laboratory-produced concoctions.

In addition to blocking the absorption of sugars, this traditional tea has cleansing and anti-bloating properties, helping rid the body of excess fluids and therefore further contributing to weight loss, especially in premenstrual and menopausal women.

Hibiscus tea is caffeine-free and has a high vitamin C content, it has a bright red color and a tart cranberry-like flavor, it’s like natures Kool-aide but much, much better for you. Hibiscus tea is also known to lower cholesterol.
