Tea fans know that this drink provides many benefits to our body, preventing and curing various health conditions. Some teas, such as the hibiscus flower, are also used by people who want to lose weight. But, have you ever thought about mixing tea with gelatin?

Hibiscus tea is rich in vitamin C and anthocyanins, flavonoid substances with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action and, in addition to being consumed through an infusion, it can also be used in the preparation of gelatine. It is the hibiscus tea gelatin, which eliminates swelling and helps in the weight loss process.

The benefits of hibiscus and gelatin

A powerful antioxidant, hibiscus tea helps fight free radicals, preventing premature aging of cells and protecting the body from various diseases. This tea also provides benefits such as decreasing cholesterol formation, blood fat and glucose levels; heart protection; and, due to its thermogenic action, which stimulates fat burning, it is an ally in the weight loss process.

Gelatine, on the other hand, is a food rich in collagen, an essential protein for the body and responsible for most of our body’s tissues, which provides many benefits to the skin, nails and hair. In addition, gelatine helps to naturally moderate hunger and prevents us from having that urge to “attack the fridge”.

By mixing the two ingredients, dissolving the gelatin powder in the hibiscus tea, we will be able to enjoy the benefits of both and, whoever wants to lose weight, will be able to achieve an even better result.

For those who don’t give up a dessert after the main meals, the tea gelatin is also a more nutritious and less caloric option for sweets, and it can also be consumed in the afternoon snack.
