Our body's metabolism plays a crucial role in any weight loss journey. Certain chemical reactions in our body that help in maintaining the health of organisms and cells is what refers to metabolism.
You must have heard people talking about high or low metabolism. If you're quite confused about the terminology, then we'll make it easy for you. A person's metabolic rate determines the calories he/she burns in a day. People with high metabolism are able to burn more calories and lose weight more quickly. On the other hand, people with low metabolism would face challenges in losing weight quickly. Fret not, as there are few herbs and spices that can boost your metabolism to a great extent.
A concoction made using three ingredients like cinnamon, black pepper and ginger could help you go a long way in boosting your body's metabolism. According to Ayurvedic Expert, Dr. Ashutosh Gautam, "Cinnamon, black pepper and ginger are good for improvement of metabolism and digestion. Cinnamon helps to improve fat breakdown in body. Whereas, ginger also helps in improving immunity and helps fight the symptoms of fluctuating seasonal variations."
