Why does this mixture aid weight loss?
Cinnamon is rich in anti-inflammatory and antioxidative characteristics. This lowers inflammation in the body and neutralizes the negative effect of free radicals. Moreover, cinnamon is known to lower the blood sugar levels, encourage sugar breakdown, and prevent fat deposits in the body.
Coconut oil is rich in medium-chain fatty acids which the digestive system sends to the liver and if they’re not turned into energy, they’re turned into ketone bodies, but they’re not stored as fat. Coconut oil encourages the metabolism to burn fat efficiently.
Honey is a natural sugar needed for the body’s energy. It has minerals like phosphorus, potassium, zinc, iron, calcium, and sodium. Moreover, it contains vitamin B6, riboflavin, vitamin C, niacin, and folate. It regulates the blood cholesterol levels and lowers stress. Honey provides you with essential nutrients and prevents mineral or vitamin deficiencies. Make sure you use raw unpasteurized honey.
