Within moderation, caffeine can have a boosting effect on the metabolism
Metabolism is defined as how quickly the body can extract energy from foods. Slower metabolism results in the body extracting this energy slowly and results in challenging weight loss.
Although metabolism is an inherent trait of each individual, some changes in lifestyle and diet may promote a higher, faster-working metabolism through using common ingredients and herbs in conjunction with regular exercise.
Vitamin D is crucial to the body, promoting the absorption of calcium and healthy, strong bones - Vitamin D rich foods are important.
A daily portion of nuts - even a handful - may promote your metabolism as nuts contain omega-3 and other key nutrients to encourage swift weight loss.
Natural juices - aloe vera, amla, wheatgrass, and others - can easily be blended into a tasty morning smoothie to provide a healthful breakfast and contribute towards increasing metabolism.
Diet can be improved in a variety of ways both great and small to improve weight loss ability, general health, and speed up slow metabolisms
How food is flavored is also important, and a few key changes can make a big difference in the long-term. Certain herbs and spices are simple to add to any diet and are known metabolism boosters.
Cinnamon, turmeric, black pepper, fenugreek and other “super” spices can flavor meals, teas, smoothies, and juices and contribute in the long terms towards a healthier metabolism.
Surprisingly, for coffee lovers, caffeine can also be added to a healthy diet (in moderation) to enhance health and boost metabolic benefits.
However, caffeine should be used in moderation and preferably without heavy doses of sugar, artificial creamers and other flavorings which are high in fat or sugar - a simple black coffee once or twice a day is ideal.
