Taking care of your body is essential to staying healthy. We must therefore ensure a healthy and balanced diet and regular physical activity.
Unfortunately, the modern diet is no more beneficial for the body and promotes the accumulation of toxins. These may pose a risk to the overall health because they favor the onset of diseases, weaken the immune system and often lead to weight gain.
Here is a detoxifying drink that will allow you to cleanse your body and eliminate excess fat and toxins.
• 30 ml of warm water (be sure that the water is warm, not hot, because there is a risk of neutralizing the minerals, vitamins and enzymes from the other ingredients)
• Juice of half a lemon
• 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
• Pinch of cayenne pepper
Mix all ingredients. You can also add a little honey to sweeten the taste of the drink. It is advisable to consume this drink every morning before breakfast for 4 weeks.
Cayenne Pepper is a spice that adds color, flavor and spice to foods. Its health benefits are many: it activates the blood circulation, relieves joint pain, stimulates digestion and speeds up the metabolism. This ingredient contains capsaicin; an active compound which acts on the fat metabolism, energy expenditure while you rest and on the appetite control.
A study of 91 subjects showed that daily intake of 9 tablespoons of capsaicin for three months after helped to speed up the metabolism of fat. However, cayenne pepper is not recommended for people allergic to chili or suffering from irritable bowel syndrome or hemorrhoids.
Lemon is rich in antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. These promote weight gain and the occurrence of illnesses. It also has the ability to slow the diffusion of the blood sugar and dissolves fat.
This citrus fruit is also rich in Vitamin C that boosts the body and helps burn more calories. This is a very effective diuretic that stimulates the renal activity and therefore helps to eliminate toxins.
Furthermore, the lemon contains a soluble fiber called pectin, which swells on contact with water. The latter stabilizes the sugar levels in the blood and provides a lasting feeling of satiety.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is rich in vitamins and minerals and has antioxidant properties for a rapid loss of weight. It is also rich in pectin, the same highly effective appetite suppressant.
In addition, apple cider vinegar is rich in acetic acid that stimulates the metabolism and accelerates the fat burning process. A recent study by a team of scientists in Sweden has shown that apple cider vinegar was an appetite suppressant. Indeed, the 12 subjects who drank cider vinegar diluted in water before meals ate less than the others.
Apple cider vinegar is also rich in antioxidants that remove and prevent the accumulation of toxins.
