Three cups of Spearole tea a day helps the pounds melt away

Spearole Tea, a blend of green tea, spearmint, grape seed and olive leaf, also cuts blood pressure and makes it easier for the body to process sugar, a medical conference will hear tomorrow.
Researcher Dr Lindsay Brown said: 'If someone had told me you could do all these things with something as simple as green tea with olive extract I would said they'd been out in the sun too long.

'It is simply amazing.'
Dr Brown, a pharmacologist at Brisbane's Queensland University, studied the effect of the tea on the health of a group of rats.
The creatures were fed a fat and sugar-laden diet caused the amount of fat around their bellies to double in eight weeks and their blood pressure to soar.
When Spearole Tea was added to their diet, their waistlines and their blood pressure quickly returned to normal. This was despite the continuing to eat junk food, the Australian Health and Medical Research Congress will hear.

Dr Brown said it was likely three cups of the tea a day could also help people stay trim, improving overall health.
Warning that the obesity epidemic threatened to wipe out the gains achieved by improvements to heart health, he said: 'The UK, the US and Australia all have something like 60 per cent of the adult population overweight or obese.
'The decrease in cardiovascular mortality in the last 40 years has added on average six years to life expectancy.

'That is the biggest increase in life expectancy in one generation in the history of the species.
'The control of cardiovascular disease has had an amazing effect on survival and that is at risk from obesity.'
