Tea mix and Shake
by Victor Stephens
Tea mix and shake - Can one drink tea mix immediately after consuming the (Herbalife Nutritional) Shake?
I read in one of the distributors blog that you should not drink the tea mix immediately after taking the Shake. If you do so, some of the nutrition in the shake will be washed away. Is this true? Presently, I am taking the mix before and after the shake.
I am on my second day.

Victor thanks for asking. I have never heard that taking the Herbal Tea
mix and shake together would wash away nutrients. And I've been an Herbalife distributor for 5 years.
I have seen many shake recipes
that mix the tea with the nutritional shake mix.
It doesn't make sense that the Herbal Concentrate Tea would 'wash away' any nutrients. As a matter of fact, many distributors recommend using the tea mix and shake together as an effective way to get the nutrition you need and boost metabolism at the same time.
The tea has the added benefits of powerful antioxidants, which neutralize free radicals. And is well known for it's thermogenic (fat burning) properties.
Here in the States we have a product called Total Control
. (TC) This dietary supplement is recommended in combination with the regular weight loss program. TC is a green tea with herbs tablet designed to increase metabolism, boost energy and burn fat.
Green tea is the main ingredient in TC and the Herbal Tea Concentrate
, but not the only one. Also included in the tea mix are orange-pekoe and black tea (other beneficial teas).
I would say go ahead and use the tea mix and shake
together as a more effective weight loss tool. If anything you should actually absorb more of the nutrients from the combination.
Here's why, an increased metabolism helps you burn more calories. Increased metabolism means your body requires more than normal fuel to burn. This means the digestive tract needs to absorb more nutrients.
With a lower than normal metabolism the body tends to pass more nutrients on the colon for elimination. As I said the combination of the tea mix and shake together should increase your fat burning capability and increase nutrient absorption.
If you really want to stoke up the fat burning furnace you could add the Herbal Aloe Concentrate
to your shakes.
Check out this recipe that combines the tea mix and shakes with the aloe drink. It is called LaBomba diet
. Recommended for jump starting a weight loss program.
Hope this helps
