Despite being a delicious start of the day, the morning cup of coffee also offers numerous health benefits.
It turns out that this hot tasty drink can help you prevent some cancer types, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and much more!
However, if you add the following three metabolism-boosting ingredients to your coffee, you will get an incredibly beneficial and healthy drink, which can help you shed inches of the waist! What’s more, you probably already have them in your kitchen!
These secret ingredients are cinnamon, honey, and coconut oil!
1. Coconut oil is a real natural miracle which has a wide range of uses. It contains medium-chain fatty acids, which are immediately sent to the liver by the digestive system, and are either converted to energy or ketone bodies, and not in fat. It sets the metabolism to burn fat faster and more efficiently
The burning process of fats is significantly affected by minerals and vitamins, so honey can be of great help, as this gift of nature contains them in high amounts, and prevents any mineral or vitamin deficiencies.
2. Honey is abundant in sugar, but a natural one, which is needed for energy. Moreover, it is rich in vitamin B6, folate, vitamin C, niacin, and riboflavin, as well as numerous minerals, such as iron, calcium, sodium, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus.
Honey has been scientifically confirmed to be able to lower stress and regulate blood cholesterol levels. Use raw honey only.
3. Cinnamon is an extremely beneficial, anti-inflammatory agent which fights inflammation in the body, and due to its antioxidant properties, neutralizes the damage caused by free radicals.
Cinnamon boosts the blood sugar metabolism and thus lowers blood sugar levels. It prevents the accumulation of fat in the body as it supports the conversion of sugar into energy. The best cinnamon types are Ceylon and Cassia.
Here is how to use these remarkable natural ingredients and boost your metabolism while drinking your coffee:
- ¾ cup of coconut oil
- ½ tbsp of honey
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of cocoa (optional)
Mix these ingredients together in a glass jar, and store it in the fridge.
Every morning, you should add a teaspoon or two of the mixture to your freshly brewed coffee, stir well, and drink it! Enjoy!
