Green tea is one of the healthiest beverages on Earth. It is loaded with antioxidants and various plant compounds that will benefit your health. Some people even claim that green tea can increase fat burning and help you lose weight.  The reason is because one of the main compounds is caffeine, a cup of green tea holds much less caffeine, 24 to 40 mg than a cup of coffee, 100 to 200 mg but it still contains enough to have a mild effect it is; a well known stimulant that has been found to aid fat burning and improve exercise performance in numerous studies.  Compounds in green tea increase levels of hormones that tell fat cells to break down fat which releases fat into the bloodstream and makes it available as energy.

Chamomile's ability to detox the body helps in getting rid of toxins and excess water. A cup of hot chamomile tea before bedtime will help you get a restful sleep as well!

You can put cinnamon in your tea, coffee, or foods.

Did you know that turmeric is not just an anti-inflammatory but it can also help eliminate excess body fat when your body is in an inflamed state, it promotes insulin resistance which can keep stubborn fat on the body. Turmeric increases the blood flow and as we know fat cells have very poor blood flow, it takes nutrients to break down the fat cells and turmeric helps nutrients get to them through this increased flow.

Lemon bioflavanoids are also great, they come from the pits of white part of the grapefruit, orange or lemon and they can help to shift the PH in the body. When you're acidic you can gain weight but when your PH is balanced it is much easier to lose weight.

Aragula is used in a salad or as a burger topping and it is powerful and nutritious and helps the body produce a digestive enzyme that helps with carb metabolism. This is particularly great for people have hard time losing weight when they eat carbs.

While Ginger is known for relieving inflammation and pain; it also plays a role in weight loss especially among women due to its potential metabolism boosting effects.
