Cha de Bugre Basics

Jumat, 25 Januari 2013
If my guess is correct, the next great energy booster/weight loss craze will be fueled by the small Brazilian tree known as Cha de Bugre (cha-day-boo-gray).
Other names for cha de bugre include:
- tea of bugre
- porangaba
- cordia salicifolia
- cordia ecalyculata
- cafe do mato
- cafezinho
- cafe de bugre
- cha de frade
- claraiba
- cha-de-negro-mina
- rabugem
- boid d'inde
- bois d'ine
- louro-salgueiro
- louro-mole
- bugrinho
- grao-do-porco
- coquelicot
Main uses:
- weight loss (appetite suppressant)
- mild diuretic
- reduce cellulite
- cardiotonic
- to combat herpes simplex
The small red berry - similar to a coffee bean - is a natural source of caffeine, potassium, allantoin, and allantoic acid. Cha de bugre has been used by many as a diuretic, appetite suppressant, weight loss formula, energy enhancer, and general heart tonic with no known contradictions or interactions.
Brazilian Dr. C.L. Cruz, in his book Dictionary of Plants Used in Brazil , recommends cha de bugre for cardiovascular health, physical energy, and endurance.
Japanese studies have found a cha de bugre extract to be effective against the Herpes virus.
And some claim cha de bugre reduces cellulite, which might account for the string bikinis in Rio de Janeiro. At least I would like to think so.
Other traditional uses include:
- cough suppressant
- reduces fever
- stimulant
- wound healer
Rather than stopping your appetite completely, cha de bugre gives one the sense of being full after consuming only a small amount of food. Cha de bugre works best as an appetite suppressant if taken about an hour before meals, which you will probably find to be smaller than your usual meals.
Some dietary supplement companies combine cha de bugre with other ingredients to synergize the weight loss and enhanced energy effect. Check the label to see if green tea, guarana, ginseng, ginkgo biloba, acai, yerba mate, or other herbs have been added.
Cha de bugre is recommended around the world as an excellent energizer and appetite suppressant.
