Chickweed Tea may sound a little unusual, but it is actually very nutritious and chickweed for weightloss is becoming quite popular as a diet tea.
Chickweed is thought of as an invasive weed, that most gardeners try to iradicate from their gardens as soon as it sprouts up. It sets seed quickly, and left unchecked the tender green shoots will soon appear all over your garden. Chickweed has tiny leaves that are a beautiful light green, and does develop a white little flower that will set 1000's of seeds.
So while you are pulling it out, why not put it to some use?

Place the chickweed in a tea ball or tea strainer and let it steep for 3-5 minutes. Drink the tea hot.
Chickweed for Weight Loss
Common chickweed, or field chickweed is a natural diuretic, meaning that drinking chickweed herbal tea can help us to loose weight and keep our weight in check.
It stimulates our metabolism and makes our bodies burn more fat! It also stimulates the digestive system and can help you if you are constipated. Drinking two or three cups of chickweed tea a day will really help your body naturally shed pounds. Of course, you must do this in conjunction with a sensible diet.
