Speed Up Your Weight Loss With Herbs And Spices

Speed Up Your Weight Loss With Herbs And Spices

I wonder how much it​ is​ generally known that the​ benefits of​ using herbs and spices can speed up your weight loss efforts,​ by quite a​ considerable amount actually.

We all know that herbs and spices are used with cooking to​ varying degrees,​ and of​ course the​ primary reason for doing so is​ to​ make food much more tasty and interesting.

I suspect however that you might be surprised at​ the​ considerable health benefits that can also be gained by using them. in​ saying this I am referring to​ those everyday items that can be found in​
most larders,​ and not necessarily those exotic and probably not so well known varieties.

I happened to​ discover the​ many benefits of​ herbs and spices and the​ fact that they can be most beneficial to​ a​ weight loss program,​ when I was doing extremely detailed research for my latest book.

The results of​ that research were so extensive,​ that it​ could be the​ basis in​ itself for a​ complete publication,​ and much more detailed therefore,​ than I could possibly include in​ this short article.

However I have been able to​ include a​ fair amount of​ information below about various herbs and spices which are known to​ particularly help to​ speed up weight loss,​ and that is​ also in​ addition to​ their excellent overall health benefits by the​ way.

You should find that you will be able to​ purchase these herbs from any good Herbalist supplier.

Garcinia: (Garcinia cambogia) is​ a​ herb which is​ sold primarily for enhancing weight loss and boosting the​ amount of​ lean muscle. This is​ also known as​ hila or​ brindell berry. One of​ the​ major benfits of​ Garcinia is​ that it​ acts as​ an​ appetite suppressant and stops the​ body from storing fat.

Pysillium: (Plantago spp.) This cheeky little herb has quite a​ few health benefits. Physillium is​ known to​ help lower cholesterol,​ and another major benefit is​ that it​ also helps to​
prevent constipation. if​ you use it​ as​ part of​ your weight loss program,​ it​ can help you to​ eat less calories and yet still feel really full.

This is​ because of​ the​ amount of​ fiber that it​ contains.

I mentioned earlier that it​ does help in​ preventing constipation,​ but in​ order to​ achieve this you should make sure that you drink plenty of​ water.

Siberian Gingsing: (Eleutherococcus senticosus) if​ you are going to​ start regular exercise as​ part of​ your health and weight loss routine,​ which is​ normally to​ be highly recommended,​ then this is​ a​ really useful herb.

It can help your body adapt to​ the​ stress of​ unaccustomed changes,​ and it​ will help to​ make you feel less tired even when you are doing simple exercises like walking for example.

So in​ turn therefore you are more likely to​ stick to​ your exercise routine.

Little Known Secrets in​ Your Larder

Cayenne: (also known as​ Capsicum,​ hot pepper,​ chilli pepper,​ tabasco pepper). the​ majority of​ us have cayenne in​ our larders,​ and it​ is​ very commonly used in​ many food dishes. Cayenne can be found in​ many forms such as​ ground spices,​ teas,​ and would you believe it,​ topical creams.

It is​ well known for its antitoxidant action,​ and greatly helps with osteoathritis and rhumatoid athritis,​ shingles,​ and diabetic neuropathy.

A note of​ caution however: Cayenne may act with anticoagulant drugs so be sure to​ consult with your doctor. Excessive use may also irritate the​ intestinal tract.

Manufactured topical capsacin creams can cause a​ burning sensation,​ so test first on​ a​ small area of​ the​ skin,​ remembering to​ wash hands thoroughly after applying the​ cream. This will avoid it​ spreading to​ the​ eyes nose or​ other sensitive areas.

Fennel: is​ native to​ the​ Mediterranean and is​ widely utilized throughout the​ world. You will find it​ in​ teas,​ capsules,​ tinctures and lozenges. Fennel can be used to​ help with bloating,​ flatulence,​ mild digestive spasms,​ catarrh,​ and coughs. it​ also has antimicrobal,​ antispadmodic,​ and anti inflammatory properties.

A note of​ caution here: Fennel can sometimes cause rare allergic skin and respiratory tract reactions. Fennel is​ also a​ potential source of​ synthetic oestrogens and should be avoided if​ you are pregnant.

Garlic: you can buy this fresh,​ or​ the​ one you will most probably have in​ your larder will be dried. the​ downside of​ garlic is​ the​ odour which it​ leaves on​ your breath,​ but chewing some
parsley after eating will soon sort out that problem.

Garlic is​ also known to​ help stimulate the​ immune system,​and to​ help in​ fighting cancer. Well documented health benefits include lowering cholesterol,​ fighting infections,​ and reducing blood

Again a​ note of​ caution: garlic may also interact with anticoaglant drugs,​ so do be sure to​ check with your doctor if​ in​ any doubt. Rare cases of​ allergic reactions are known,​ and some people might possibly experience heartburn or​ even flatulence.

These are just a​ few of​ the​ herbs you can use in​ cooking,​ but do remember that there are many many more,​ and the​ benefits in​ using them frequently can be quite remarkable.

You will realize of​ course that when using them as​ part of​ any dish to​ use them sparingly,​ as​ to​ add too much would just spoil the​ meal.

As with everything in​ life one should try and strike a​ balance,​ after all you know what they say "all things in​ moderation".
