Changing your diet to help with weight loss is a known necessity, but not everyone is aware of these eight herbs that will burn fat without needing exercise.
Individuals who use these herbs regularly in their meal plans tend to find greater success in their weight loss efforts and also tend to be able to keep the weight off if they maintain the diet and exercise regimen.
Cayenne Pepper contains capsaicin, which increases the metabolism while helping decrease the appetite. The pepper also has properties that fight cancer and regulate blood pressure.
In addition to boosting metabolism, ginger provides stimulation to both circulation and weight loss efforts. Oils present in the herb help increase the metabolism and thereby help with weight loss as well.
Consuming dandelion can help the body metabolize carbohydrates more efficiently and also regulates blood sugar levels, which helps minimize the cravings that lead to snacking.
Fat in cells is burned and split more efficiently when people consume horseradish. There is also a general cleansing effect on the body that is beneficial.
Drinking an infusion of plantain before a meal helps you burn calories, eat less and feel full sooner. Plantain is a good source of fiber and can also be used as a mild laxative.
Guarana provides vitamins, minerals and other necessary nutrients. It also has twice as much caffeine as coffee beans, so it helps reduce physical and mental fatigue and increases adrenaline.
Green tea helps metabolize more fat both while resting and exercising, stimulates the central nervous system and also increases metabolism.
This herb increases the flow of energy that burns body fat. It also contains caffeine and theophylline, which gives the consumer a sense of euphoria and also is a stimulant.
When it comes to using these herbs, the best time to ingest is in the morning, before your first meal. Using the herbs in the evening can be detrimental to a good night’s sleep. Also, the herbs in extract form can be ingested before working out to gain benefits there as well.
A tea or infusion of herbs for increasing metabolism should be consumed daily for the best effects. Eating more plants to cleanse the body of toxins will increase the positive effects of the herbs, and it will improve the diuretic actions of the herbs as well.
Mixing these herbs is not advised, as some can counteract the positive benefits of others when they are combined for consumption.
It is also important to take them individually and gauge their impact on your digestive system, as some people are sensitive to these herbs and have reactions. When consuming them individually, it is easy to determine the cause of a negative reaction and eliminate that herb from your diet. On the opposite side of the spectrum, it can take a significant amount of time to determine the culprit when you begin ingesting multiple herbs at once, and you also have to factor in their potential combinations as a cause of your digestive issues.
