The tea can also lower the alcoholic contents in blood. Besides, over 40% of the subjects which drink Pu-erh Tea lose their weight for different extents obviously for people of the 40-50 age group. For lowering lipid matters, 34% were tested with excellent result and 33% good. Triglyceride, cholesterol and uric acid can be lowered to various levels as well. Thus, Pu-erh Tea is renowned as slimming tea or health tea in Japan, Italy, Hong Kong, Macao, etc.

A clinical test conducted by Kunming Medical Institute proved that pu-erh tea has a higher curative effect than clofibrate, a medicine to cure lipemia. The same effect has been verified on lowering cholesterol levels. No side-effect occurs with regular consumption. Recent medical experiments also report that pu-erh tea (100g of tea infused in 700ml of boiling water and taken 4 times a day) is a bacteriostatic, especially effective against bacillary dysentery. Therefore, regular consumption of pu-erh tea can prevent dysentery, too. Unlike other stimulating black teas and because of its mild nature, pu-erh tea can cut the grease, help digestion, promote body fluid secretion, quench thirst, invigorate the spleen, and dispel alcoholic toxins.
