New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with Is This New (old) Kind of Tea For You? Fermented Tea?
I’m always trying to find interesting new things I’m also on the forefront of a lot of just different research so I learn about new things that come to light now what I want to talk about today in the world of fermented tea isn’t anything new but it’s gaining popularity and a level of newness within at least the Western world and something called puer tea fermented tea if you’ve seen my videos before I’m kind of a tea nerd so I’m always talking about matcha I’m talking about green tea black tea all this and that and I know those of you that are watching my channel watch my videos are probably at least somewhat tea connoisseurs like you you enjoy some matcha tea when you’re fasting but your your knowledge of the different teas might not extend past just the various forms of black and various forms of green so I was really intrigued when I learned about puer so I just want to talked about how you can introduce puer fermented tea sort of into your low carb high fat lifestyle or even into your fasting lifestyle hey make sure you go ahead and hit that red subscribe button then hit that Bell icon if you haven’t already that way you can always keep it locked in here on my channel so what puer tea is or fermented tea is tea that goes through a natural fermentation process so it’s not like kombucha like for example kombucha is black tea or green tea that’s been brewed and then they add a culture to it and they ferment the tea after it’s been brewed usually adding some sugar kombucha is a different world okay fermented tea or puer tea is different in the sense that it is fermented before it’s brutes they’re taking the leaves and you’re fermenting them and then drying them so the tea leaves are actually fermented already now the benefit from fermented tea comes from the sense that it’s already oxidized people typically think oh well a food is oxidized so it’s not gonna be good for me like you don’t want to be eating an oxidized avocado right but when it comes to tea it’s a little bit different because you’re oxidizing it and you’re getting rid of what would potentially oxidize it inside your body okay so with tea because it’s oxidized and then dried you’re left with something that’s really powerful and the oxidation effect converts what are called catechins over into specific polyphenols known as Thea Flavin’s so tea has these things called catechins like if you’ve heard of EGCG before technically that’s a catechin because the name is epi’ gala catechin three gaily right so EGCG is a catechin now what happens through the fermentation process is some of these catechins a lot of these catechins get converted into very potent very potent polyphenols that normally wouldn’t get converted into those polyphenols within your body so these specific thea Flavin’s that we’ll call them they are really powerful at restoring gut bacteria because they’re so prebiotic so when you’re fasting but in my particular case preferably when you’re doing keto it helps rebalance the gut bacteria because you can’t constantly be eating asparagus all day but you can sip on tea that provides you with the Theia Flavin’s that grow good bacteria okay but then making matters better you have a probiotic effect because it’s fermented okay so because the T is already exposed to cultures and bacteria to ferment it in the first place you literally get a prebiotic tea that is also probiotic so pretty interesting so it’s a different world right so certainties you’re gonna get antioxidant attributes and certainties you’re gonna get more digestive attributes which have an indirect antioxidant effect I know we’re going to tea school here and I know it’s kind of weird but honestly tea is interesting stuff and there’s people that dedicate their whole life to this so there’s a study that was published in journal molecules that found that with puer tea it inhibits something really interesting inhibits what is called catechol o methyl transferase long word but what it means is because it inhibits this it inhibits the breakdown of what are called catecholamines this means like when you’re fasting or when you’re doing keto and you have epinephrine or adrenaline which are catecholamines flowing through your body you want that okay you want those catecholamines to help you burn fat that’s the whole point okay epinephrine adrenaline they’ll help you burn fat and what happens is this catechol ol methyl transferase comes around and it breaks them down it breaks down the adrenaline and it stops the effect of it we don’t want that it turns out that puer T and specific forms in the catechins in puer t can inhibit this catechol ol methyl transferase this is what’s really cool the reason it’s so cool is because it basically is enhancing the effect of the fast by stopping the breakdown of makes a fast or Kido cool in the first place right now additionally when you go through the fermentation process you heighten the effects of what is called quercetin within the t2 we have small amounts of quercetin the antioxidant flavonoid that are in some teas but when it goes through a fermentation process this gets elevated up regulated even more okay so this has two different cool things that it does in the body for one it’s a cox-2 inhibitor cyclooxygenase enzyme – inhibitor which means that it modulates inflammation just like an aspirin or just like an ibuprofen one but that’s kind of to a small degree I think the bigger effect is it has an anti histamine effect so if you suffer from allergies it can block that histamine response so it can make it so that if your stuffy congested itchy it can actually have a positive effect by temporarily blocking that response without having to load up on a bunch of claritin it’s pretty cool stuff now let’s get into the really fun stuff because this is where poo air tea becomes somewhat superior now I don’t want to say that it’s superior okay I’m not I’m not just saying that just to say it it’s superior in different ways right like do you consume regular green tea or black – you’re not going to get a big gut restorative effect but with puer tea you have a different classification of benefits right so there’s a study that was published in the Journal of infection and immunity that found that due to the gut shifting effect that gut bacteria that got biome shifting effect there are some pretty powerful effects at sort of reversing metabolic damage so in this particular study they looked at mice that were eating a high-fat diet now when I say high fat diet high fat and high carbs they were doing a lot of metabolic damage to their body a lot of inflammation they found that the gut remodeling that occurred because of consuming parties they gave them my school air tea that ended up solving and even reversing some of their metabolic dysfunction what this implies is that in human models it could really do a really powerful thing at reversing some of the metabolic damage and metabolic disorder effects that we’ve had just from eating high fat high sugar for so long now because it had powerful effects on cholesterol because it had powerful effects over all just on high fat diets it does also imply that people that are eating a ketogenic diet that might fall victim to some of these other negative attributes of a high fat diet could have some of them mitigated by consuming who air tea so pretty cool stuff that’s actually been published then we can add on to this with another study that we found in phytotherapy research that takes a look at hormone sensitive lipase hormone sensitive lipase is the epicenter for fat-burning okay light pollicis has to occur at the site of hormone-sensitive lipase and what that means is that without hormone sensitive lipase being activated we’re never actually breaking down fat so it’s kind of cool that PRT also activates this now this being said to be completely fair and play devil’s advocate green tea and black tea in general will elevate hormone sensitive lipase but only party elevates hormone sensitive lipase in conjunction with the gut remodeling for those of you that are interested and want a try party I did go ahead and put a link down below to Peak tea so you don’t have to like brew it make it all complicated just have a little packets add it to water and you’re good to go so they’ve got their really cool revolutionary form of puer tea that’s just super convenient so I keep it in my car and keep it at home just like I do a lot of their other teas it’s just awesome that they’re rolling this out and have this to offer now so do check them out special links special discount for anyone that watches my videos down below you might want to try it with fasting I highly recommend trying it with keto because it does seem to help me when it comes down to eating higher fat foods so just check them out now let’s go ahead and move into what it’s gonna do for your brain okay this is a big piece okay in addition to remodeling the gut bacteria which can have a serious effect on what’s called the gut brain access it has a powerful effect on the glutamate scale within our body okay particularly our brain so we’ve heard me talk in other videos we have glutamate we have gaba right so glutamate is the excitatory portion of our brain I always use this example so forgive me for explaining it again but if you go out and you have food that’s high in msg like you go to a buffet okay that food is going to seem like it tastes really good and you’re gonna want to eat a lot of it just because it seems like it tastes good even if it doesn’t really taste good well that’s because the MSG monosodium glutamate is activating the glutamate basically response in your brain making your brain light up and think that you enjoy the food that you maybe didn’t even really enjoy it just makes enhances taste right because it’s lighting up your brain well you can imagine how this can burn you out right you don’t want that to constantly be lighting up your brain that’s like taking a bunch of caffeine loading up on a bunch of caffeine you’re gonna crash later the glutamate cycle in your brain we don’t want to activate it too much and it’s a great way to kill neurons it’s a great way to instigate timers and dementia because there’s a lot of evidence pointing to that so now we introduce the genetic side of this thing which there’s something known as M G L you are 5 ok M glue R 5 we’ll just call it in blue are 5 so in blue R 5 is sort of a needs to be transcribed and it needs to be basically activated it’s a genetic pathway that will activate that glutamate cycle within the brain so if it is activated and if it is hyperactive it means that that side of our brain or that portion of our brain is just getting turned on all the time what has been found is that puer T down regulates and deactivates this M glue R 5 so it ultimately down regulates the transcription and the translation of it so it means that the genes that would normally turn that whole process on a don’t get turned on very well and B they don’t even get like translated they don’t even get understood so we could potentially be helping ourselves out and we could go out on a limb and say that we actually could be protecting our brain okay we could be protecting our braining help potentially helping keep us young so when you factor in all the cool stuff it’s something that’s worth a shot something that you might want to add to your arsenal again I’m not saying that you replace your green tea or you replace your black tea with it but adding it into the mix and at least being educated on the different forms of tea that have been around at Eastern culture for a really long time and bring them over to your culture and your style now could be really powerful so as always do keep it locked in here on my channel I appreciate you watching see you in the next video

Is This New (old) Kind of Tea For You? Fermented Tea – Thomas DeLauer
I’m always trying to find interesting new things. I’m also on the forefront of a lot of just different research. So I learn about new things that come to light. Now, what I’m going to talk about today in the world of fermented tea isn’t anything new, but it’s gaining popularity and a level of newness within at least the Western world. And it’s something called pu’er tea. Fermented tea. If you’ve seen my videos before, I’m kind of a tea nerd. So I’m always talking about matcha, I’m talking about green tea, black tea, all this and that. And I know those of you that are watching my channel and watch my videos are probably at least somewhat tea connoisseurs, like you enjoy some matcha tea when you’re fasting, but your knowledge of the different teas might not extend past just the various forms of black and various forms of green.
So what pu’er tea is, or fermented tea, is tea that goes through a natural fermentation process. So it’s not like kombucha. For example, kombucha is black tea or green tea that’s been brewed and then they add a culture to it and they ferment the tea after it’s been brewed, usually adding some sugar. Kombucha is a different world.
Now, the benefit from fermented tea comes from the sense that it’s already oxidized. People typically think, oh, well a food is oxidized, so it’s not going to be good for me. Like you don’t want to be eating an oxidized avocado, right? But when it comes to tea, it’s a little bit different, because you’re oxidizing it and you’re getting rid of what would potentially oxidize inside your body. So with tea, because it’s oxidized and then dried, you’re left with something that’s really powerful and the oxidation effect converts what are called catechins over in two specific polyphenols known as theaflavins.
So, tea has these things called catechins. If you’ve heard of EGCG before, technically that’s a catechin because the name is epigallocatechin-3-gallate, right? So, EGCG is a catechin. Now, what happens through the fermentation process is some of these catechins, and a lot of these catechins get converted into very potent polyphenols that normally wouldn’t get converted into those polyphenols within your body. So these specific theaflavins that we’ll call them, they are really powerful at restoring gut bacteria because they’re so prebiotic. So when you’re fasting, but in my particular case, preferably when you’re doing keto, it helps rebalance the gut bacteria because you can’t constantly be eating asparagus all day, but you can sip on tea that provides you with the theaflavins that grow good bacteria.
So you consume regular green tea or black tea, you’re not going to get a big gut restorative effect, but with pu’er tea you have a different classification of benefits. So there was a study that was published in the Journal of Infection and Immunity that found that due to the gut shifting effect, the gut bacteria, the gut biome shifting effect, there are some pretty powerful effects reversing metabolic damage.
Found that PE altered the body composition and attenuated metabolic endotoxemia and systemic and multiple-tissue inflammation, and improved the glucose and lipid metabolism disorder in high-fat diet (HFD)-fed mice via multiple pathways
Notably, PE promoted the lipid oxidation and browning of white adipose tissue (WAT) in HFD-fed mice
Then we can add onto this with another study that we found in phytotherapy research that takes a look at hormone sensitive lipase.
Now let’s go ahead and move into what it’s going to do for your brain. This is a big piece. In addition to remodeling the gut bacteria, which can have a serious effect on what’s called the gut brain access, it has a powerful effect on the glutamate scale within our body.
Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) is one of the glutamate receptors and represents a promising target for studying neuroprotective agents of potential application in neurodegenerative diseases
In this study, pu’er tea markedly decreased the transcription and translation of mGluR5 compared to those by black and green teas
