Whoever came up with this load of bologna surely sits on the board of one of the major wineries. The body no more needs help digesting food than it needs help to blink its eyes or to breathe.

Bojenmi is a tea that is used for weight loss in China. It contains medicinal herbs that strengthen your digestive system and spleen, and reduce water retention. The formula includes several herbs, the main one being a tea leaf found in the Fujian Province. Bojenmi’s herbs are traditionally used to enhance digestion, resolve accumulations of mucus and moisture, eliminate food stagnation, and provide a slight laxative effect. The combination works with the four therapeutic actions relied upon in Chinese medicine to promote weight loss and reduce blood lipids. By enhancing digestive function, general digestion is improved. Good digestion results in good health and a long life. By enhancing the spleen, nutrient absorption is improved which results in better metabolism and energy. By reducing blood lipids, fat is removed from the blood which results in lower cholesterol. Excess mucus in our body results in excess water by removing the mucus the excess water is expelled.
