There is something innately comforting about a piping hot cup of tea and its unquestionable ability to provide comfort in the craziest and most chaotic days. What if we told you that your favourite beverage can actually do a lot more than just soothing your soul and perking up your mood? Yes, you read that right.
One of the best things about a cup of tea is that it gives plenty of room for experimentation. While a warm cuppa always comes handy during a bout of sniffles, adding particular ingredients to your tea can also help in kickstarting your weight loss journey. Yes, we are telling you how to make an incredibly potent cup of chai to aid your weight loss journey. The best part? You will only need to add three ingredients.
The internet may be flooded with a variety of detox drinks and herbal teas, but what we are suggesting is an extremely simple yet powerful herbal tea. This herbal concoction will help in kickstarting your metabolism and speed up your weight loss journey. You will only need ginger, ajwain (carom seeds) and lemon.
It is important to note that while there is no such thing as magical concoctions which will shrink your belly overnight, including detox drinks in your diet plan can certainly go a long way in assisting your quest to lose weight. All three ingredients are loaded with antioxidants and can help in promoting weight loss.
For the unversed, antioxidants fight the free radicals present in your body that cause inflammation. A study conducted in 2019 found that regular consumption of ginger can actually lead to a significant reduction in body weight.
Ajwain or carom seeds, which are another key element in this herbal tea, are well known to boost your metabolism, further accelerating your weight loss journey and also play a huge role in keeping digestive issues at bay. The third ingredient, lemon is known to increase your metabolism and there is strong anecdotal evidence that links lemon-water with weight loss.
Soak 1 teaspoon of carom seeds in water overnight. The next day, heat the ajwain water in a pan, add finely chopped ginger to the concoction and let it come to boil. Strain the herbal tea, add a teaspoon of lemon juice and enjoy your tea! You may also add honey or jaggery as per your taste.
You may consider replacing your early morning cup of masala chai or coffee with this weight loss inducing drink!
