Cinnamon stick - it boosts your metabolism because the body uses more energy to process the spice than it does for other foods. It is full of fiber and helps you achieve that "full" feeling that signals to your body that "mealtime" is over. It may increase insulin sensitivity and decrease blood sugar, both key components for losing weight and controlling type 2 diabetes.
Ginger - it is a thermogenic food that can raise the temperature of the body by burning stored up body fat, boosting your metabolism and reducing fat storage. It may relieve chronic indigestion or dyspepsia, a condition that causes pain due to a delay of the stomach to empty its contents. It may help to suppress your appetite by keeping the feeling of "fullness" and ultimately reducing your overall daily caloric intake.
Dandelion - it is a natural diuretic (promotes urination and decreases water retention). It soothes digestive ailments and increases bile flow to better metabolize fats.
Fennel - it has a rich source of fiber, which helps you stay fuller longer and prevent cravings and overeating. It improves digestion by promoting the production of gastric enzymes and reduces fat storage by improving vitamin and mineral absorption.
Eleuthero - it helps to curb cravings and naturally increase energy levels. It is a stimulant that increases energy and burns calories.
Schisandra - it helps to prevent obesity and reduces serum glucose, triglyceride and cholesterol levels. It increases beneficial gut bacteria and decreases harmful gut bacteria. When used on obese patients, a greater decrease in waist circumference, fat mass, fasting blood glucose and triglycerides are observed.
Rose Hips - it is high in an antioxidant called tiliroside, which may have fat-burning properties to decrease overall body weight and stomach fat.
Hibiscus - it contains anthocyanins, phenolic compounds and flavonoids that can help to regulate the genes involved in lipid metabolism, boosting fat elimination and reducing the size of fat cells. Some studies have shown that hibiscus tea may reduce blood cholesterol and triglycerides in those with diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
