The Magic Potion to get your Metabolism in motion!
SO , if you have ANY of these three ingredients in your home (which you should have at least one and if not.....they are easy to find) you can add them to a cup of warm water, let them soak until you have a nice little brew and then drink it before bed! We suggest boiling the water then adding the three ingredients (Cinnamon, Ginger root, Peppermint leaves). The flavor will be incredibly strong but the results will be glorious!
Why do these ingredients work?
Cinnamon: Cinnamon is in the carminative category because it contains an agent that assists in breaking up intestinal gas. These agents were used traditionally to fight diarrhea, as well as morning sickness. Cinnamon also has been known to improve glucose metabolism and stimulate the production of natural insulin.
Peppermint: The aroma of the herb activates the salivary glands in our mouth as well as glands which secrete digestive enzymes, thereby facilitating digestion.
Ginger Root: Ginger is very very powerful in improving your digestive function. If you have any sort of intestinal inflammation, warning signs that you have GI inflammation — things like psoriasis or eczema, acne, any sort of skin blemishes, and basically any warning sign that you probably have inflammation in your digestive track — ginger has been proven to be very effective at reducing inflammation and also supporting your digestive system health.
