So, you've heard about the latest weight loss tea, Wu Yi. Wu Yi is virtually the same thing as Wu Long and Oolong. That being said, you might still be wondering if Wu Yi is a scam or not. If you weren't, you probably wouldn't be reading this article, would you? It's often claimed that it has been endorsed by people like Rachel Ray and Oprah, but is that really enough?
Let's take a look at the evidence. There have been studies done on Wu Yi and other Oolong teas. The teas produce a substance called Polypheno that works as a fat destroying enzyme. This is created when the tea has a high oxidation percentage, often ranging from between 10% - 70%, depending on the grade and quality of the tea leaves you buy. This Polypheno compound helps destroy fat and boost your metabolism, which helps you loose weight by burning calories more easily.
That being said, Wu Yi tea doesn't make you lose weight overnight. It still takes work on your end, such as diet and personal fitness and exercise, albeit not as much is needed.
Wu Yi and other Oolong teas are best used as a dietary supplement and not as a magic weight loss drink as some mistake it to be. You drink it as instructed and do your best to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Wu Yi tea should help you lose weight. So, in that aspect, the Wu Yi diet scam has been debunked. In summary, Wu Yi tea doesn't do magic, but it does speed up your personal weight loss.
