Blog Post:Cleansing Teas to Kickstart Your Weight Loss - Sexy Lean Home Fitness

There are many “diet” teas on the market today but creating your own tea at home, using the recipes below, gives you an advantage of using natural and inexpensive ingredients (no more than 3 added ingredients per tea) that you can drink as often as you like.

Drinking warm water helps your body flush out toxins, excess fat, and most importantly, it keeps you hydrated. And when you’re fully hydrated, you’re not mistaking thirst for hunger…and reaching for another snack instead of water.

Boost a Sluggish Metabolism While Eliminating Acid Reflux!

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) has a long list of health benefits, both internal and topical applications. By adding a little ACV to your tea really helps your digestion system as well as:

  • Boost metabolism
  • Help weight loss efforts
  • Banishes acid reflux
  • Controls blood sugar levels
  • Improves energy
  • Whitens teeth
  • Eliminates bad breath
  • Soothes stomach cramps
  • Eliminates hiccups
  • Relieves sore throat
  • May lower cholesterol
  • Clears acne-prone skin

ACV also acts as an antibiotic and can eliminate bacterial infections which may cause diarrhea. But most importantly, it can help you lose weight since the acetic acid, found in ACV, suppresses your appetite, your metabolism will be raised, and you can even release water weight! Research has found that ACV blocks starches from being fully consumed by the body, therefore less calories enter your bloodstream.

Give Your Body a Little Extra Heat

Cayenne pepper is another ingredient that you can add to your tea which is known to support weight loss. A study at the Laval University in Quebec discovered that when participants added cayenne with breakfast, their appetite was curbed and their metabolism increased which meant the calories they did consume – although fewer than normal due to the suppressed appetite – were utilized better by the faster metabolism. And this, of course, leads to burning fat and reshaping your body.

Due to the spice adding heat to the body, a natural detoxifying process begins. Cayenne also aids the digestive system, the lymphatic system, and improves circulation. In addition to:

  • Fights cold and flu symptoms
  • Boosts metabolism
  • Prevents migraine headaches
  • Produces saliva
  • Relieves joint pain
  • Boosts heart health

Sweet and Sour

Honey is a wonderful, natural sweetener that helps eliminate acid reflux, combats infections, and even relieves cold symptoms quickly.

And finally, lemon juice. This is well known as a natural detoxifying ingredient for the liver. It can kick-starts the digestive system if consumed with warm water when you first rise, and it support the digestive system while even cleansing the colon.
