Obesity occurs due to an imbalance between the consumption and expenditure of calories and may be due to genetic influences or hormonal changes. We know that, in order to lose weight, it is necessary to control the intake of calories through a healthy and balanced diet and the practice of physical exercise, maintaining a balance between consumption and caloric expenditure.Ingesting extra calories is a problem that affects many people and, therefore, there are several studies, treatments and methods that aim to provide a feeling of satiety. In this context, a new nutraceutical was created in compounding pharmacies, which combines the benefits of white tea with green banana.

The combination of white tea and green banana

The functional nutraceutical is the association of green banana ( paradisiac muse ) and white tea ( camellia sinensis ), resulting in a product rich in fiber and a great source of minerals, such as potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sodium and magnesium, in addition to vitamins A, from complex B and C.

Nutraceuticals can also be considered probiotic, providing efficient activities in maintaining good health and preventing disease.

Does it act in the organism?

Green bananas are known to provide energy, reduce appetite and improve intestinal flora. With several beneficial properties, studies released recently show that it can be an ally against the increase in blood glucose. The feeling of satiety provided by green bananas is due to its two types of fibers, soluble and insoluble, which also help to modulate blood glucose.

Soluble fiber is a resistant starch that provides a greater feeling of satiety for a long period of time; while insoluble fiber makes it difficult to absorb fat and sugar molecules, thus modulating blood glucose.

White tea, in turn, acts on our body in a similar way to green tea, so it deflates, detoxifies and speeds up the metabolism, facilitating fat burning. Unlike green tea, white tea is not bitter but rather mild.

White tea also provides other health benefits besides weight loss: it strengthens the immune system, lowers bad cholesterol (LDL), prevents cardiovascular problems, protects the skin from the harmful effects of the sun, acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-flu and prevents the formation of plaque and tooth decay.

Due to its properties, this nutraceutical is another option for those who want to lose weight, but remember that, before any treatment, it is necessary to have a medical orientation for your case.
