How Can Lemon & Spice Weight Loss Tea Make You Feel Great?
This is a classic, vivacious Ayurvedic blend to boost fat digestion and metabolism. After drinking Lemon & Spice tea, a warm sensation deep in your belly will confirm these effects.
Strong Metabolism for Weight Loss
Enthusiasm and inspiration are the effects of stimulating vinegar and spicy cayenne. They add an intense metabolic spark that improves energy, restoring your "get-up-and-go" that youve been missing. Together with warm water, they strongly stimulate digestion and clear mucus accumulations from the stomach. This has the effect of improving circulation and revving up metabolism, effectively clearing heavy fats from the blood as well. Honey is the only approved sweetener for weight loss. The secret behind honey lies in pre-digestion by bees, making honey the only 'warming' sweetener that actually improves metabolism. It's diuretic nature reduces water weight as well.
Brighten Up Your Groggy Mornings
When celebrations with heavy foods and desserts leave you groggy and tired the next morning, Lemon & Spice adds a sparkle to the eye and an enthusiastic boost. A heavy, late night meal sits in your digestive tract throughout the night until the next morning, stagnant and undigested. When this happens you may wake up to find your stomach feels like a throbbing brick weighing you down, making you feel tired and groggy. This is actually not far from the truth. Lemon & Spice Tea re-awakens your stomach and directly counteracts food coma and groggy mornings.
Bile & Fat Reduction
Vinegar and lemon impart a strong sour taste, encouraging the free flow of bile from your liver and gall bladder to your gut. Bile is nature's fat digester. Its presence in your gut helps digest high-fat foods. When these foods linger in the stomach and small intestine you feel heavy and sluggish. Drinking Lemon & Spice tea restores energy and vitality by helping the body digest each meal with ease.
Your bodies production of oily bile pulls fat out of your bloodstream. Every time you stimulate bile production, you siphon fats and toxins from the blood. When you don't eat enough green vegetables, bile tends to build up and thicken in the liver and gall bladder, forming gallstones. Lemon & Spice Weight Loss Tea cleanses the liver and gall bladder by flushing backed-up bile, helping you avoid the discomfort of gallstones and lose weight.
