Little Known Herbal Remedies to Help You Lose Weight
If you love curry, you will love how it can help you lose weight. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is one of the most well studied spices in recent history. Turmeric reduces the formation of fat by arresting the blood vessels that are needed to form fat tissue so this can lower overall body fat and weight gain.
This is an old Ayurvedic remedy for the relief of joint pain, lowering cholesterol levels, and shedding pounds. The University of Nebraska, as well as Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, found that subjects who consumed 750 mg of this herb daily, and did some aerobic exercise three times a week lost an average of 6 pounds more over the 6 months study period when compared to the control group. Guggul helps your body metabolize fat and improves thyroid function by stimulating the production of hormones.
11. Reishi Mushrooms
These delicious mushrooms are harvested in the wild where they favor fallen logs and trees. They have been collected and used for centuries as both food and medicinal purposes for Traditional Chinese medicine to strengthen the immune system and for improving energy levels. It’s their ability to deal with fatigue that is probably the likely reason that Reishi mushrooms are often used in weight loss supplements. If you are allergic to other types of mushrooms, you probably shouldn’t consume Reishi mushrooms either. Also, watch your coffee or caffeine consumption when eating these mushrooms as they can make you feel jittery.
Like cayenne pepper and turmeric, ginger is another warming spice that not only has anti-inflammatory compounds, but helps to soothe and relax the digestive tract as well. Ginger has thermogenic compounds that can suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism at the same time.
