Ginger Tea – A Perfect Solution To Weight Loss
An old Indian proverb says “Everything good is found in ginger”. Ginger is referred to as a universal medicine in Ayurveda while Chinese traditional medical practices turn to ginger as it restores Yang, or simply put, hot energy. Though ginger is not a very commonly used ingredient in Western kitchens, despite it being widely used in other countries across the globe, however, this spicy, aromatic root has long been used in Western healings systems as well, especially in the form of ginger tea.
A recent study by the University of Maryland Medical Centre has revealed that the pungent phenol compounds and active volatile oils like shoaols and gingerols, are what lend ginger its magical healing powers. Studies conducted on animals have indicated that ginger, when coupled with other therapies, can treat obesity.
A research report published in the Journal of the Science and Food of Agriculture in 2014, experimented on the effects of gingerol – the main content in ginger – on the body weight of obese rats. After a trail period of one month, researchers saw a significant reduction in body weight of fats as well as improved levels of leptin in them – a hormone that signals insulin and satiety.
A similar study published in the European Review for Medical and Pharmacological Sciences in its 2013 issue compared the effects of Orlistat (a weight loss medicine) and ginger. After 30 days, Orlistat and ginger had similar body weight reduction effects while ginger also improved levels of good cholesterol in blood streams of rats.
With such a wide range of health benefits, it makes sense to start adding this to more of your dishes. The best way to add ginger to your menu is to start brewing a daily cup of ginger tea also famous as weight loss tea. Ginger tea is proved to have high levels of amino acids, Vitamin C as well as numerous trace elements like Sodium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Zinc and many others.
For optimal benefits, brew your own cup of this effective weight loss tea by simmering a fresh 2-inch piece of whole unpeeled ginger in one quart of water. Bring the water to a boil and then let it simmer on very low heat for around 15 minutes. Strain your freshly brewed weight loss tea and store it in a thermos bottle or any glass jar. An easier alternative is to hunt for packaged ginger teas that have ginger as their main ingredient instead of just the ginger flavored teas.
Not only ginger tea is used as a weight loss tea for general weight reduction, it also helps keep the pesky belly fat away. This is because ginger targets the main reasons that cause fat to accumulate at belly, like hormonal changes, overeating and low energy levels that lead to lack of physical activities.
Chronic stress and hormonal changes can increase blood cortisol levels that throw the metabolism and immune system out of balance. A cup of ginger tea makes one feel full, which curbs the urge of overeat and fixes hormonal imbalances.
