A must have in our slimming tea, mint helps in several ways. Firstly it stimulates the digestive enzymes to promote better absorption of nutrients, thus improving the metabolism and aiding weight loss. Furthermore it boosts the release of extra bile, helping for better digestion of fat, and pushes excess liquid from the body, reducing bloating and helping the kidneys. Toxins are flushed from the body and fat turned into usable energy. Mint also has a calming effect on the body and mind, which is very important to initiate weight loss as stress can be responsible for the body increasing the storage of fat and may also increase the possibility of diseases or dysfunctions within the digestive system. Stress also produces cortisol which leads to food cravings and can destroy any weight loss regime.
A natural laxative to promote peristalsis of the bowel and colon, thus effectively clearing and cleaning it. Senna will remove any excess water and waste from the body which is left after the food has been digested and the nutrients and calories already absorbed.
Rosemary contains compounds which have insulin-like effects and trigger the absorption of glucose into muscle cells, thus helping to lower blood sugar. It also promotes the healthy balance of bacteria in the gut, reducing inflammation and promoting efficient digestion. Studies have shown that rosemary is very beneficial to prevent weight gain in particular when consuming a high fat diet, and offers protection against several metabolic disorders.
Cinnamon promotes the loss of visceral fat to support weight loss, reducing the effect of consuming high fat foods, and targeting belly fat. Additionally, it boosts digestion and the metabolism, particularly since the body needs more energy to digest this particular spice, plus lowers and maintains cholesterol and blood sugar levels, leading to reduced appetite and hunger pangs, whilst the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties deter bloating. Another must have in any slimming tea.
Research suggests that chia seeds are very beneficial in eliminating toxin build-up from the intestines and maintaining visceral fat. Containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, carbohydrates, antioxidants, iron and calcium, they are a high source of energy, which also swell in the stomach reducing appetite and increasing a feeling of fullness and satiety. Chia helps to boost the metabolism and digestive system.
Rich in detoxifying and metabolism-boosting vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, B vitamins, manganese, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus and folate, fennel aids digestion, ensuring better absorption of nutrients from food and reducing hunger pangs. It can also protect against water retention, plus help to purify the blood, preventing the accumulation of fat in the liver. Blood sugar levels are also stabilised and bowel movements regulated. Additionally, fennel stimulates melatonin production, promoting a good night’s sleep, which is extremely helpful to maintaining a diet.
Cumin has the ability to improve the digestive system and increase metabolism and fat burning, whilst anti-inflammatory properties reduce bloating. Studies have confirmed that cumin was shown to effectively decrease body fat and weight.
Anise aids in promoting an efficient digestion and fat metabolism. With its diuretic properties it helps to eliminate toxins and remove excess fluids from the body. Anise may also reduce stress and tension which prohibits cortisol and thereby reduces cravings.
Oregano increases the metabolism, regulates blood sugar and promotes better digestion by stimulating the bile juices. Best of all, it contains a powerful compound named carvacrol which seems to change fat synthesis within the body, and studies indicate it reduces the visceral fat levels, overall body weight and stabilises cholesterol levels.
Ginger contains compounds named shogaols and gingerols which are known to stimulate biological activities, increasing metabolism and fat burning, decreasing fat absorption and appetite, resulting in significantly decreased belly fat and body weight. Blood sugar levels are stabilised, digestion stimulated and hunger suppressed for longer.
Research has shown that liquorice reduces body fat without any known side effects, perhaps due to its strong taste suppressing the appetite, and the body retaining the sense of fullness. It regulates the enzyme activity, preventing the development of fat cells and breaking down existing fat cells, in particular decreasing abdominal fat and blood glucose.
Psyllium has several benefits for weight loss. Firstly it promotes bowel regularity, cleanses the colon and allows for healthy probiotics to grow in the gut. It absorbs liquid from the body, expanding and giving a feeling of fullness, reducing appetite and hunger pangs. Psyllium helps to stabilise blood sugar and cholesterol levels, and overall boost the metabolism allowing more fat burning.
