Pu’er Tea

Why is it easy to have hunger when drinking Pu’er tea?

Caffeine, theophylline and theobromine in Pu’er tea can significantly stimulate gastric acid secretion and promote gastric motility. Increased gastric acid secretion (and faster gastrointestinal peristalsis) helps food digestion and produces a sense of grease clearance or faster hunger.

Drinking Pu’er tea accelerates evacuation, especially raw tea, so that fat substances do not have much time to absorb and drain into the colon. The colon only absorbs some water and vitamin K to prepare for discharge into the rectum.

Of course, this sense of hunger after drinking Pu’er tea is very good for the human body. Frequent drinking of Pu’er tea can not only eliminate fat and greasy, but also benefit the human body with many beneficial substances.
