Here is another great recipe that, in addition to being inexpensive, tasty and calorie-free, also has 3 health effects: cleans the body from toxins, increases the metabolism and helps with weight loss.
The main ingredients in this drink are apples and cinnamon.
The antioxidants in cinnamon stabilize the blood sugar levels and reduce the cravings for carbohydrates, but at the same time they don’t encourage excessive secretion of insulin, which is important if you want to lose weight successfully.
Foods that provoke a substantial insulin release also promote deposition of fat in the body. According to experts, cinnamon keeps the secretion of insulin under control, which enables successful fat loss.
Studies have shown that taking only half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day can reduce the amount of bad cholesterol. Cinnamon also helps with poor digestion and helps reduce triglycerides.
Water with apple and cinnamon: 0 calories!
