Drinking green tea with ginger and lemon is a great way to jump-start your day. Shoot for 3 glasses a day for three days.
Green tea – It is loaded with polyphenols like flavonoids and catechins, which function as powerful antioxidants in our body. Green tea has been shown to boost the metabolic rate and increase fat burning.
Ginger – It can be used to ease indigestion and reduce gas, bloating along with flatulence. The spicy component of ginger can also rev up your internal fire along with upping your metabolism.
Lemon – From a lot of reading, the phytochemicals in lemons do some sort of stabilizing magic on the catechins when they’re in your digestive tract. What does that mean? When you sip Green Tea your body may destroy good enzymes in the tea. Lemon will counteract that.
