Weight Loss Spices That Really Work
Spicing up your food does more than just add flavor. Most spices offer a variety of benefits, including reducing inflammation and burning excess calories. The spices you choose to add to your meals can give you a head start on your weight loss goals.
Pepper, both black and white, add heat to your food. Calories are units of heat and when they burn heat is created in the body. It also helps the body to digest and utilize foods more efficiently.
Cloves have anti-inflammatory properties and are known to be metabolic boosters. Boosting the metabolism helps the body work more efficiently and burn calories much more effectively.
Ginger aids in digestion, helps to reduce inflammation and boosts metabolism providing the body with the energy it needs to function efficiently. It also reduces food cravings and helps to control a person's appetite.
Turmeric adds both flavor and color to your meals. Turmeric helps to reduce inflammation allowing the body to move and exercise more effectively. It also improves cardiovascular function and increases circulation.
Cayenne pepper not only adds flavor, but improves thermogenesis within the body. Thermogenesis is the process of burning calories within the body. Burning calories creates heat and the act of creating heat burns additional calories. The cycle created by thermogenesis promotes weight loss for several hours after it starts.
Garlic, cinnamon and sage are also spices that promote weight loss in different ways. While some promote thermogenesis, others improve digestion and keep the metabolism functioning at its best. Explore the world of spices and find out which ones offer the most benefits. Improve your health by improving the taste of your food.
