The recommendation is to use two shallow teaspoons for a glass of water. It should boil for one minute and let it flow for five minutes. Then add a teaspoon of Cayenne pepper powder. However, you should not overdo the daily amount. You can drink two glasses, for example after main meals.
3. Ginger Tea and Cinnamon
Let's go by piece. Cinnamon contains calcium, manganese, iron and fiber. In addition, it is hypoglycemic. This means that it lowers blood sugar levels, which is a plus for diabetics. How about ginger? It is rich in vitamin B6, magnesium, copper, potassium and other minerals needed for the body. Gingerol, a compound that adds spicy flavor to this food, is also anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. Both have a thermogenic effect. In other words, they speed up metabolism and, therefore, fat burning and the weight loss process. So mixing these two foods can only work.
