4. Green Tea And Ginger

Green tea has been researched many times for its function as a weight loss aid. Whereas some researchers haven’t proven that green tea is helpful for weight loss, others have acknowledged three key substances in green tea that could support losing weight: theanine, catechins, and caffeine[4] [5].

Caffeine can enhance numerous processes in the body, including metabolism associated with weight. Furthermore, the caffeine in green tea will help you relieve stress.

Catechins are known to be an effective antioxidant. This substance exists in green tea in much larger amounts than in black tea because of the difference in processing (black tea undergoes fermentation). Several studies have revealed that catechins lower the absorption of fats through the intestine[6]. Besides, theanine, an amino acid in green tea, can increase the production of dopamine, a chemical that can give you a relaxed and happy sensation. For that reason, it can be quite helpful when it comes to curing your stress-induced eating. Follow these steps.


Put one teaspoon of green tea and one-half inch of ginger root, peeled and finely sliced, or half a teaspoon of ground ginger, in a tea strainer and place it in a cup with 250 mL of hot water. Infusing green tea for a long period of time can give a bitter taste, so just steep it for 3-4 minutes. If you like your tea to be sweet, then add some raw honey to it, but remember to keep away from sugar and milk. Drink 1-2 glasses every day before your meals.

5. Ginseng

Ginseng is a plant with fleshy roots. There are various types of ginseng, but the recommended species for weight loss are American ginseng, also called Panax quinquefolius, and Korean ginseng, also called Panax ginseng. These two types of ginseng have been studied using double-blind tests. Although ginseng is known for being a stimulant to boost an inactive metabolism, it also helps fight fatigue and increase energy along with mental alertness[7]. This plays a huge role in losing weight without burning energy since not including exercise in the weight loss process is nearly impossible. Aside from that, there is some evidence that it can help control blood sugar, which influences your appetite and energy levels.

  • Measure out 1 teaspoon of chopped ginseng for each cup of water.
  • Boil 8 ounces of water, then pour over the ginseng.
  • Let steep for about 5-9 minutes.
  • Strain and add some lemon or raw honey (optional).
  • Drink it one to two times every day.

Blood sugar is known for having a direct influence on your weight because it affects your cravings and your energy levels (the more energy you have, the more likely you will exercise!)[8]. Keeping your blood sugar balanced helps to control appetite, and the body will be more prone to burn fat for energy rather than storing it in the body.

While there are ongoing debates about this drink’s effectiveness, plenty of preliminary findings are proving that cinnamon can be useful in managing blood sugar levels. For that reason, why don’t we enjoy some cinnamon tea ourselves? Follow these steps.

Combining these two herbs gives you the ultimate protection for the liver.
