Chá de Bugre
The popular name for a small Brazilian tree, Cordia salicifolia. In Brazil, the fruit is used as a coffee substitute as well as an herbal medicine. It’s also marketed as an appetite suppressant, although this property has not been verified by any controlled studies.
Chá de Bugre extracts are being marketed for use in weight loss supplements. It’s being touted as an alternative to ephedra/ephedrine for losing fat and reducing cellulite, although there is zero proof it works.
