An article entitled, 5 Spices That Can Help You Lose Weight, highlighted cinnamon and ginger—two of the main ingredients in dōTERRA’s Slim & Sassy blend.
The article stated that in 2003 a study published in Diabetes Care showed that as little as one teaspoon of cinnamon per day can boost the body’s weight-loss ability by reducing blood sugar and promoting healthier processing of carbohydrates. It also lowers LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol) by 7 to 27% and total cholesterol by 12 to 26%. Plus, cinnamon has been shown to prevent the metabolic syndrome commonly seen in pre-diabetics.
Ginger, long used for its medicinal properties, is an effective diuretic. It improves gastric mobility and hinders the absorption of cholesterol. Although more study is needed according to the Mayo Clinic, preliminary evidence suggests that this versatile spice helps to increase metabolism.
Just add 1 to 8 drops to 16 oz. of water and drink between your healthy meals. Use this essential oil blend daily to speed up metabolism, suppress appetite, help your body cleanse harmful toxins to which fat cells “cling”, and elevate mood.*
With these simple tips, exercise, and a proper diet, now can be the time when goals are reached and lifestyle is improved!
