Natural Appetite Suppressants

There are scientific explanations as to why your scale is refusing to move even though you are on a diet. Not only do you have to follow your diet correctly, but you also need to boost your metabolism and digestion to shed the fat. Some major ingredients shown by research to help the body burn fat: herbs and spices. Spicy foods can act as natural appetite suppressants, the active ingredient in many spicy foods is capsaicin, a compound that not only acts as an appetite suppressant but also boosts metabolism so that our body can burn more calories throughout the day.  

There are many reasons why you might feel like you’re always hungry, including nutrient deficiencies, a lack of fiber or healthy fats in your diet, fatigue, or high amounts of emotional stress. Natural appetite suppressants can help you achieve satiety and avoid overeating, and they can help you do that without the dangers of diet pills to decreasing your appetite through hormone regulation, nutrients or essential oils used for safely promoting weight loss

Below is a list of herbs and spices that are the most effective and beneficial.

Cayenne

As you’ve probably noticed when you add too much, cayenne is a warming spice. This means that cayenne raises the body’s temperature, helping to boost metabolism.

Cayenne Pepper Weight Loss Recipe

Ingredients:

¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 lime

1 cup water

How to Prepare:

Squeeze out the juice of a lime into a glass.

Add a cup of water and ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper.

Stir well before drinking.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon plays a vital role in lowering blood sugar, LDL cholesterol, and triglycerides. No wonder it is recommended as a condiment for people with diabetes. Cinnamon is also a great help in curbing cravings and keep you feeling full longer. Try to drink cinnamon-infused water first thing in the morning every day for four weeks to get the desired results. The warm cinnamon tea helps to flush out toxins and support better bowel movement, thereby preventing bloating.

Green Tea

Green tea has been consumed for thousands of years and is still one of the healthiest beverages available to us today. Undoubtedly, green tea is the best herbal tea for weight loss. It is rich in antioxidants called catechins. Green tea can lower levels of ghrelin (known as the hunger hormone).

Garlic

Garlic has very powerful healing properties. It may cause bad breath, but it helps in treating cardiovascular conditions, improves the immune system, and can help the body burn fat. This herb contains a unique compound called allicin that suppresses hunger and boosts metabolism.

Ginger

Like cinnamon, ginger helps control blood sugar, meaning it can help prevent a spike in glucose levels after a sugar or carb-rich meal. The spice also has the same thermogenic properties as turmeric and cayenne. Ginger can boost metabolism by 20% speeding up the calorie burning process. It has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the intestines, flush out toxins from the colon, and help to melt fat.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Essential oils have many health benefits, but one in particular, grapefruit, may also serve as a natural appetite suppressant. Grapefruit’s role in weight loss has been the focus of dozens of studies and seems to be due to beneficial acids, antioxidants, volatile oils and enzymes that help reduce your appetite, lower cravings, and help stimulate the lymphatic system.

The scent of grapefruit oil excites sympathetic nerves that supply the brown adipose tissue and adrenal glands, which may help stimulate weight loss.

The ones explored here are just a few among a wide range of herbs and spices that may help with appetite control and weight loss. Because they’re loaded with benefits, virtually free from calories and easy to use on all sorts of recipes. There is evidence that including more spices and herbs in your diet reduces your intake of things like flavor enhancers, salt and sugar, helping you lose weight without the negative effects. On the other hand, popular weight loss pills come with a number of side effects, including jitteriness, anxiety, trouble sleeping, indigestion, diarrhea, rapid heartbeat and headaches, which is why natural appetite suppressants are always better options.

Garlic has been used for centuries for health and longevity in many different cultures. Its used for protection against infections- bacterial, viral, parasitic and fungal infections. The enzyme allinase converts allin in garlic to allicin. Allicin has a natural antibiotic effect.

A whole clove of garlic is essential for getting all its active factors, some of which include allicin, methyl allytrisulfide and sulfur. Each of these plays an important role in the body. Methly allytrisulfide acts by dilating blood vessel walls and also thins the blood by inhibiting platelet aggregation. Sulfur, found in hemoglobin and other body tissues partly protects the body against antibiotic-resistant strains of staphylococcus, proteus and pseudomonas, etc. In a clove of organic garlic, there can be about 20mg of naturally occurring sulfur. Garlic is also very effective against microbes such as herpes and candida.

The goodness of Garlic provides general cardiovascular support, respiratory/ lung and immune support.
