Metabolism Boosting Drinks for Weight Loss
When it comes to weight loss, boosting your metabolism is the holy grail. Although there are many factors which affect your metabolic rate which you cannot control, such as age, gender, and genetics, there are ways to give your metabolism a boost. One easy way is to drink metabolism boosting drinks.
Studies have demonstrated that drinking water raises your metabolism all by itself. Children given just water in the study had significantly elevated resting energy expenditure (REE) by up to 25%. This effect lasted up to 40 minutes. In another study, adults who drank eight or more glasses of water a day burned more calories than those who drank four.
The following metabolism boosting drinks are not only delicious, some of the ingredients used have been know to naturally boost your metabolism and help you feel great.
- The Original Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water. This classic recipe has two key metabolism boosting ingredients: Cinnamon and apples.Cinnamon has been reported to increase metabolism and is particularly helpful in glucose (sugar) metabolism. It improves the way fat cells respond to sugar, increases insulin sensitivity and helps lower blood sugar levels. Apples are also the only fruit that contains the flavinoid “phlorizdon”, which has been found to have many health benefits including playing a key role in improving lung function, especially in women with asthma.
- Day Spa Mango Ginger Water. Try this popular recipe which boosts your metabolism, acts as a natural pain reliever for migraines to menstrual cramps, and makes you feel better. It also helps reduce morning or motion sickness and banishes heart burn! Mangos not only boost metabolism, they also aid in digestion, boost your memory and increases your sex drive!
- Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink. This Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink will warm you up and help you lose weight! It contains fruits that are high in Vitamin C which are also big metabolism boosters! One of my favorite combos are strawberries and tangerines, and this drink is delicious both hot and cold.
- Day Spa Pineapple, Grapefruit and Apple Water. Did you know both grapefruit and apple boost metabolism and curb your appetite? I love foods that help me with my weight loss journey and these two are big ones. Top that with water also curbing your appetite and you have a great refreshing metabolism boosting drink that works for you!
