foods that increase metabolismBefore we go to the foods that increase metabolism, at first, read this suggestion about how to use it:
“The regulation of blood sugar level is one of the most effective ways to maintain your ability to burn fat. Eat smaller amounts often helps to maintain the level of blood sugar and prevents hunger. Try eating 5 small meals or healthy snacks throughout the day. This provides more energy and may be the most effective way to increase metabolism, of course with the foods that increase metabolism.”

Here the 3 super foods that increase metabolism:
1. Cinnamon
Cinnamon has a long history as a fragrant spice and as medicine. In traditional Chinese medicine, cinnamon is known for its qualities to increase blood circulation. This increases the cognitive thinking and increases metabolism. Cinnamon contains antioxidants that boost the immune system and is anti-blood clotting and anti-inflammatory that helps arthritis pain and helps prevent heart disease, especially high cholesterol. Cinnamon also contains manganese, fiber, vitamin C and calcium.

Cinnamon is very easy to use in the diet. Sprinkle on toast, add to yogurt or smoothie.

2. Green Tea
Even green tea is not a food, but studies have shown that green tea increases metabolism and fat oxidation in the body. At first it was thought that the caffeine in green tea accounted for the increase in metabolism. However, the researchers found that the same amount of caffeine alone did not have the same effect on metabolism as green tea.

Green tea helps build your immune system with antioxidants. Lowers cholesterol and blood pressure, reduces the risk of several types of cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

Green tea is also very cheap and easy to incorporate into the diet. If you do not like the taste of a warm cup of green tea, take it combined with a fruit smoothie.

3. Turmeric
Turmeric is a spice of heating. Its orange / yellow gives curry is characteristic. Turmeric is also anti-inflammatory that helps with the symptoms of arthritis and can help reduce cholesterol in preventing the buildup of plaque in arteries. Curcumin, or cumin, is one of the active ingredients in turmeric and helps break down fats in the body.

Turmeric contains iron, magnesium, potassium and vitamins B6 and C.

Turmeric can be used in dishes from India, of course, as well as meat and vegetable recipes. Adding a bit of turmeric to prepare meals, give an exotic touch.

The spices should be taken with caution and not take in large quantities as they become detrimental rather than beneficial. Anyway you should always consult your dietitian.
