Foods that increase metabolism are high on our cleanse shopping list. As the weather gets warmer, our desire to lose that excess belly fat becomes stronger. We have chosen two proven foods that increase metabolism to include as part of our new all-organic antioxidant blend found in our 21-Day Cleanse.
Proven Foods that Increase Metabolism
Both of the ingredients we’ve chosen as the metabolism boosters in our new antioxidant blend for fighting free radicals have been studied for their thermogenic properties. Our bodies burn calories through normal bodily functions and physical activity but certain thermogenic foods that increase metabolism by causing your body to heat up and burn extra calories.
Thermogenic foods include garlic, turmeric, and certain spices containing capsaicin (also found in our blend). Including thermogenic foods that increase metabolism in your daily meals can work synergistically with our Cleanse Shakes to help you burn more calories.
Organic Green Tea
Caffeine founds in organic green tea can increase our metabolic rate to aid in thermogenesis and fat oxidization. Studies have shown that green tea can increase metabolism anywhere from 4% up to 17% along with increasing energy essential for those looking to stay active during their cleanse.
Antioxidants found in green tea including epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) may lower your risk of certain diseases. Organic green tea is packed with powerful antioxidants that can help in the prevention of certain cancers, diabetes, and even the flu.
Experience the thermogenic power of foods that increase metabolism like organic ginger which may have the ability to boost our metabolism up to 5%. Ginger aids in digestion, metabolism, and our body’s production of bile -- an essential process during a cleanse. Additionally, ginger helps reduce inflammation that can cause puffiness and bloating in the body.
Ginger is rich in antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamin C, flavonoids, and polyphenols. Ginger helps your body sweat, a great tool for dealing with detox symptoms during the cleanse or if suffering from a cold or flu. Like green tea, the active compounds found in ginger may also reduce the risk of certain cancers and the symptoms associated with other diseases like nausea and inflammation.
