How Ginger and Cinnamon Work Together to Trigger Weight Loss
Drinking a tea made of fresh ginger and cinnamon bark works to accomplish weight loss because the two spices work synergistically to:
- Stimulate the circulation so the body is more efficient at clearing toxins and fats out of the bloodstream
- Stimulate the process of peristalsis in the colon to remove excess waste that may be impairing it's function
- Cleanse the digestive system of microorganisms and, fungi and parasites that may be creating a toxic environment in the gut that is sabotaging weight loss
- Halt the growth of the yeast Candida that contributes to metabolic disorders and weight gain
- Help the ejection of bile from the gall bladder, which helps reduce cholesterol
- Lower blood sugar in people with metabolic disorders such as insulin resistance and Type II Diabetes
- Both ginger and cinnamon consist of unique essential oils that calm cravings and help suppress appetite
