The Best Japanese Weight Loss Teas
Teas have been a part of herbal and traditional medicine for hundreds of years, and a wide range of studies are finding some positive results when studying different teas for their effects on weight, blood sugar, metabolism, and more.
In Japan, traditional herbal medicine is still a go-to for many people, too. So, if you’re curious about the old and new thinking on tea as an accompaniment to your weight loss journey, we’d recommend looking into Japanese diet teas. They’re popular with our customers, and for good reason! They can easily fit into any diet plan, and they’re made to Japan’s strict quality and safety standards. In other words, no hidden ingredients, environmental toxins, or questionable supply chains that you might find in even “natural” products from other countries.
Diet teas are so popular in Japan that many weight lot supplements have a tea to accompany them. So, if you like Calorie Limit, Nakatta Koto ni, or Orihiro Night Diet, check out the tea in these lines!
Metabome Tea from TeaLife comes with simple packaging but contains some interesting ingredients that have been studied for weight loss. It contains tochu tea, pu’erh tea, black bean extract, and oolong tea, all of which have shown promising results in the lab not only for weight loss but other symptoms of lifestyle diseases like poor circulation, blood sugar problems, and more. These teas also provide plenty of vitamins and minerals which are important to supplement as you diet in order to prevent food cravings.
This tea is particularly recommended by the manufacturer as ideal for men who tend to overeat, and they claim it has an appetite-suppressing effect as well. Even though it’s only available online through TeaLife in Japan, over 3 million units have been sold since it was launched, which gives you a sense of its popularity!
Fancl Calorie Limit Tea
Fancl’s Calorie Limit is a diet supplement from health and beauty leader, Fancl, and enjoys some of the best brand recognition in Japan. In fact, you can actually find this tea bottled in convenience stores around Japan. If you’ve found yourself a little hesitant to try a diet tea, especially ordering from overseas, we recommend this one from the trusted brand Fancl.
Designed to help block some of the calories you eat, this is a really easy addition to any diet: just drink a cup of this tea with your meal and enjoy a “calorie limit”. It contains many of the same ingredients as the popular Calorie Limit tablet-type supplement including gymnema sylvestre extract, which can help reduce sugar craving and sugar intake, mulberry leaf, which is said to prevent blood sugar spikes, oolong tea, which has been researched for fat loss, and kidney bean extract, which can serve as a carb blocker.
Nakatta Koto Ni! Tea
Nakatta Koto Ni! (“like it never happened”) is another popular diet supplement in Japan that comes in both tea and tablet form. The tea version has a very interesting blend that includes some more rare types of tea, including candlebush, coix seed, black bean, senna, corn, corn silk, fish mint, cassia nomame, jiaogulan, loquat, and wolfberry.
The flavor is designed to be easy to drink, and is similar to popular barley tea. This tea is recommended by the makers to help those who tend to snack or have an unbalanced diet. A lot of reviewers also give this tea good reviews for its gentle laxative effect, too. You can check out the tablet form of Nakatta Koto Ni! here.
Orihiro Night Diet Tea
Orihiro Night Diet Tea is our best-selling diet tea on Wonect. Rather than being calorie and carb blocking, Orihiro Night Diet Tea is designed to help you lose weight through balancing digestive bacteria with a range of pre- and probiotics like oligosaccharides and a range of lactobacillus strains. It has a caffeine rooibos tea base, and includes candle bush tea, which has a detoxifying effect. Camomile tea and glycine help promote relaxation and sleep, making it idea for bedtime. This tea may have a mild laxative effect due to being formulated with malitol, so it can also help if you have digestive issues during dieting.
Yamamoto Kampo Fat Flow Tea
The Fat Flow, Sugar Flow, and Salt Flow teas are based around herbal Japanese medicine, or “kampo”. Yamamoto Kampo is one of the best known kampo-based drugstore brands in Japan, and also makes Japan’s bestselling green juice.
This series includes three types of herbal teas blended to beat the absorption of fat, the spiking of blood sugar, and salt retention. The Fat Flow Tea is the most popular amongst our customers. It contains a blend of tochu tea, cassia seed tea, barley, brown rice, oolong tea, pu’er tea, mulberry leaf tea, licorice, green tea extract, and kelp. Reviewers say the blend tastes delicious, so it’s easy to make a habit of.
Graphico Hot Ginger (Atsui de Shouga)
The body works hard to lower its temperature when it’s warm, which is why many Japanese diet products are based around heating the body to raise the metabolism and promote sweating. Graphico Hot Ginger contains capsicum and ginger to help raise the body temperature, while ForsLean® (coleus forskohlii) extract and black ginger work as metabolic boosters for weight loss. This is a relaxing, sweet drink that’s ideal for the cooler months.
