Increase Your Metabolism With These Juice Recipes
Juicing fruits and vegetables is a great way to increase your metabolism and burn off additional weight. Your metabolism is your body’s ability to convert nutrients from the food and drinks that you consume into energy. Fresh juice made from raw produce can jump start your metabolism by providing your body with the nutrients it needs to thrive without adding a lot of calories. Drinking these juices before a meal can also reduce your appetite, leading you to eat less and feel full sooner.
There are a number of foods that have been linked through studies to an increase in the body’s metabolism. Chili peppers contain capsaicin, a chemical that gives them their heat, which also increases your metabolism. Citrus juices have been found to increase your body’s sensitivity to insulin, thus giving your metabolism an extra boost. Some studies have also indicated that cinnamon is effective at speeding up your metabolism while lowering your blood sugar. The increased metabolism lasts for hours.
Here are some great juice recipes to try for increasing your metabolism.
