Ginger: there are so many reasons you’ll want to use ginger for weight loss. Ginger a natural appetite suppressant, metabolism booster, and can help to improve your digestion. It can also balance your level of leptin, the hormone that is responsible for you feeling full and satisfied after a meal.
Ginger is also naturally anti-viral and anti-inflammatory, boosting your immune system to fight against the cold virus.
Turmeric: much of turmeric’s health benefits come from curcumin, its main bioactive compound. Studies show that curcumin may have the ability to turn “bad” white fat cells into “good” brown fat cells that increase your metabolism to aid weight loss.
Cayenne Pepper: the capsaicin in cayenne pepper is known to boost metabolism, causing the body to produce extra heat and burn more calories for fuel. It’s also a natural appetite suppressant that can reduce your cravings for unhealthy snacks.
Black Pepper: it may seem odd to add black pepper for taste when you’ve already added cayenne pepper for spiciness, but do not leave it out! Black pepper increases your body’s ability to digest turmeric and all its wholesome goodness.
Coconut Oil: the curcumin in turmeric is fat-soluble. Adding coconut oil to this tea allows your body to absorb the maximum amount of nutritional benefits from the turmeric.
