Wulong Tea for Weight Loss Lies and Misinformation

People are becoming more and more confused over the plethora of articles and self serving blog posts about Oolong tea claiming knowledge about a topic they know nothing about. As soon as a researcher giving oolong tea to rats mentioned “weight loss” that was the open door for the scam artists to go into overdrive and proclaim that Oolong tea is now clinically proven to solve the worlds’ weight loss problems.

Manipulation of facts for monetary gain is now the norm on just about every Oolong tea website claiming magical weight loss properties. Even celebrities have been dragged into the arena either knowingly for financial reward or unwittingly like Oprah and Rachel Ray. The websites are cleverly designed with big celebrity pictures and the overall impression is to strongly imply that celebrities are drinking and endorsing the vendors own brand of Oolong tea weight loss product.

That is an example of Oolong tea website owners using half truths with a spin designed to fool people into buying their supposed weight loss tea product. Confusion brought about by deliberate mis-information. A while back, January 26th 2004 to be more specific, the Wall Street Journal published an article by Jennifer Saranow titled “Steeped in Confusion”. (Full Article) Since this time nothing has changed to keep the public properly informed on the benefits, or otherwise, of drinking tea on a regular basis for either natural health or weight loss purposes.

Like anything else related to losing weight and health, the FDA and other similar global agencies have no interest in the rampant lies and deceit. It quite literally takes a death or two for them to take action against the people producing these pills and potions as in the case of the weight loss compound Trimspa which was linked to the unfortunate death of Anna Nicole Smith. It is important to realize that the FDA is primarily about making sure that a product has been demonstrated to be safe so on the rare occasion that you see a weight loss product with ‘FDA Approved’ stamped on the label it absolutely does not mean that it will work and slim you down. Most weight loss products have an FDA disclaimer in the small print somewhere saying it is NOT FDA approved.

Of course, since 2004 there have been numerous studies and clinical trials with various Oolong teas more geared toward humans than laboratory animals, and although many of the results are looking promising as we gain more understanding into the world of polyphenols, anti oxidants, flavonoids and theaflavins as they impact our natural health from the drinking of Green, White, Oolong and Black Teas we must always remember not to take what the sellers of these weight loss tea packages tell us at face value.
