Herbs and Spices for Natural Weight Loss:
Losing weight is not an easy task for most people. There are many factors that come into play, including: bad eating habits, sleep loss, hormone imbalances, slow metabolism or constant stress. But fear not! There are quite a few natural home remedies that will help shrink the waistline in a healthy and organic way!
Ginseng has been shown to have an anti-obesity effect on the body. The appetite control properties of ginseng help prevent excessive intake of food while stimulating energy use within the skeletal muscle and liver.
Ginseng also reduces the amount of energy used by the intestine which allows the body to allocate its energy in other, more effective, ways to aid in natural weight loss.
Capsaicin, the primary ingredient in all peppers, is known as a thermogenic chemical. Thermogenic chemicals are natural chemicals that also help speed up your metabolism and decrease appetite.
Additionally, cayenne pepper is spicy which increases the temperature of your body. In turn, this allows you to burn calories at a faster rate.
One of the most useful spices in the world, black pepper is actually a wheelhouse of beneficial support to your body. Organic black pepper has Vitamins A, C, K and calcium, potassium and sodium.
The thermogenic effect also applies to black pepper similar to that of cayenne pepper. To boost your metabolism, pop a couple of black peppercorns at the start of each day. If that doesn’t sound exciting, give black pepper tea a try. Just ground up our organic black peppercorns and add ½ to 1 teaspoon to your morning tea!
In ancient times, cinnamon was originally a medical treatment. Known for its anti-inflammatory properties and increasing cognitive abilities, cinnamon also has the ability to decrease the negative effects of the consumption of high-fat diets. Add this to your diet and exercise plan to reach your weight loss goal!
And remember, a single teaspoon of cinnamon contains approximately 1.5 grams of fiber. Fiber intake has been said to increase the feeling of fullness and create a healthy digestive environment for your body!
One of the most powerful herbs, turmeric’s benefits trump that of many pharmaceutical medications. Most of turmeric’s healing powers have been attributed to curcumin, a group of antioxidant compounds found in the rhizome.
Curcumin is known for its anti-inflammatory and pain reducing characteristics. Studies have shown that curcumin can prevent the growth of mutated cells, reduce inflammation in the joints, boost serotonin levels in the brain, and lower the risk for heart disease.
In addition, turmeric has the ability to reduce the amount of inflammation that is commonly associated with obesity.
Ginger displays a wide range of therapeutic properties. It has even been said to aid in reducing the harmful side effects of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. But ginger is also a great weight loss tool.
Most people are able to use ginger for weight loss with minimal side effects. Ginger powder can be made in capsule form, sprinkle it on your food, or mix it into your water.
There are many natural remedies to aid in weight loss. Add any of these key ingredients to your diet. Ensure that you are balancing your diet with exercise and add these supplements to increase the benefits. The truth is, there is no quick-fix to weight loss.
