On a previous show, Dr. Oz talked about weight loss, but focused losing weight around drinking tea. Now a lot of guys at Best Price Nutrition are tea fans, so we decided to talk about this. One of the weight loss teas that Dr. Oz talked about was called Bilberry Tea.
What is Bilberry?
A small branched shrub found mainly in moors, humus-rich soil and open woods from lowlands to mountains, Bilberry (Vaccinum myrtillus) bears small blue-black, many-seeded berries. Also commonly known as whortleberry, Bilberry has been a source of fresh jam for hundreds of years.
Extensively written about in 16th century herbals, this berry is native to northern Europe and Asia; northern Europe and Asia; with its nearest American counterpart being the huckleberry. During World War 2, Royal Air Force pilots swore that eating Bilberry jam prior to night missions significantly improved their visual acuity in the darkness.
Dr. Oz on Bilberry Tea
Dr. Oz recommended Bilberry Tea to stop cravings in the evening, especially around dinnertime. The sweet flavor of Bilberry tea helps balance your blood sugar, which makes you not crave sugary foods and snacks as much. This can then help you lose weight over time.
Recommendations / Directions
Dr. oz recommends drinking one cup per day. Best to drink it in the evening.
