This Thanksgiving, Will You Have Room for Dessert?

Viana Muller, PhD

I LOVE Thanksgiving! It’s a special day when I join family and friends in a spirit of gratitude and celebration before a table overflowing with delectable and lovingly prepared dishes!

I also look forward to the opportunity to put aside my usual regimen of healthy eating for a day of guilt-free indulgence. I can overdo it, however, and after the main meal, I often end up feeling stuffed and uncomfortable. Worst of all, I don’t feel like I even have room for dessert! (And believe me, I LOVE desserts!)

If you can relate, I have a special tip to help you make room for seconds or dessert after overindulging in a rich and delicious meal. Between the main course and dessert, I always drink some Royal Chanca Piedra tea. (And when I’m hosting dinner, I serve it as a separate course after the main meal!)

This highly effective botanical makes it easier to quickly digest fats by supporting your liver and gall bladder, two organs that work overtime after a heavy Thanksgiving meal.

The benefits of Chanca Piedra (Phyllanthus Spp) aren’t just anecdotal. Scientific studies found in the PubMed database show that Chanca Piedra can help with digestion, aid in lowering cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and even promote weight loss. You can see the list of studies here.

Royal Chanca Piedra tea is delicious and so very soothing to the stomach. I brew it up ahead of time – I love the fresh, grassy aroma – and it only takes about 15 minutes to prepare. While we’re clearing up the table in preparation for dessert, I warm up the tea, which I garnish with lemon slices or a sprig of mint.

Here’s another tip that makes it even easier to take Royal Chanca Piedra on Thanksgiving. You can bypass the brewing process entirely and use our Royal Chanca Piedra liquid extract. Around 30 drops are the equivalent of a cup of tea. All you need to do is add the liquid extract to hot water and, voilá – you have an instant cup of Royal Chanca Piedra tea! If you’re on the go, you can also take drops of extract directly on your tongue.

Within 30 to 40 minutes of drinking the Royal Chanca Piedra tea, the overstuffed feeling is gone, and everyone – including me – is more than ready for dessert!

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year, consider adding a “tea course” between dinner and dessert and serve our Royal Chanca Piedra tea. Your guests will thank you!
