Looking after your health physically and mentally is something that we all started to take care of more, and because of this, there are now many different ways that you can do that. When specifically looking at keeping fit and losing weight, companies have come up with many products that can help you with this process. 

Whether you are looking for something to speed up your weight loss or just help you see better results, taking supplements can help. Here at Internal Youth, we focus on producing only natural products. This is why we only listed the natural and potentially organic options that can help you with weight loss as part of this blog post. 

Below is a list of traditional herbs that have been used as part of remedies and medicine for decades. Some of you may have already known their great benefits in strengthening your immune system, but you may not have been aware that the same herbs can also help with speeding up your metabolism and helping you lose weight. 

As part of this blog post, the organic spices we focus on are Cayenne Pepper, Ginger, Cinnamon & Turmeric. So, let’s dive into their amazing benefits.

Cayenne Pepper

1. Cayenne Pepper 

Cayenne Pepper is a natural herb with a few great benefits that can help you lose weight. 

Cayenne Pepper can help you lose weight by:

  • Speeding up your metabolism
  • Decreasing your appetite
  • Burning more calories

Many studies have been carried out where people who have consumed red pepper with every meal were left feeling fuller for longer and had fewer cravings. This, of course, results in helping you maintain your diet and calorie intake, which will lead to losing weight. It also has Capsaicin as the main ingredient, which helps to speed up your metabolism. 

Aside from helping you lose weight, this herb is great for overall health. During another study, people who took Cayenne Pepper for their gastrointestinal conditions experienced benefits from taking this supplement.  

How to take Cayenne Pepper?

It is very simple to add Cayenne Pepper to your diet. One of the easiest ways to do this is by adding it to your meals for taste. You can, for example, buy dry pepper powder and simply add this as part of a marinade for your chicken. You can easily find many recipes online using this herb like the one linked above. 

When adding Cayenne Pepper to your diet, aim to include around 28 grams of fresh chilli pepper or 1 gram of dried chilli pepper. This would be enough to provide benefits to your health. 

If you’re looking for a quicker & easier way to consume Cayenne Pepper, the alternative would be taking capsules/tablets, which you can purchase from any drug store. Always lookout for a label on the product that describes this supplement as natural or organic, like Internal Youth’s Fat Burner Capsules. Cayenne Pepper is a part of the ingredient list, alongside green tea extract, glucomannan powder, etc. 


2. Ginger

We all are familiar with Ginger, and I am pretty safe in saying that the majority (if not all) of us have consumed it as part of a recipe or used it as some form of remedy. Ginger has many great health benefits, but it is especially good for weight management. 

There have been many great studies conducted on what kind of benefits Ginger can provide us with, and the results have been very impressive. 

For many decades people have used Ginger as part of different types of remedies. Aside from helping with losing weight, many people consume it as part of their daily supplements, especially when they feel ‘under the weather’. 

When purchasing this supplement, always look for the organic label, like at Internal Youth. As part of one of the products, we focus on helping to boost your immune system, which has two primary ingredients: Ginger & Turmeric. You can find out more about our Organic Immune System Supplement here.

Ginger can help you lose weight by:

  • Decreasing body mass index (BMI)
  • Burning fat
  • Decreasing appetite
  • Increasing metabolism

How to consume Ginger?

To experience full benefits, it is recommended to intake 1/2 teaspoon of grated raw or powdered Ginger. There are many different ways you can add such a small amount to your diet every day. For tea lovers, for example, you can drink one cup of Ginger and lemon tea a day every morning. 

Because of how Ginger as a herb is evolved in today’s supplement industry, you can purchase tablets or capsules online or in stores.


3. Turmeric

Turmeric is another very popular herb that we all have consumed before. This spice is excellent for adding to your dishes, especially making a traditional Asian dish like curry. As well as being a great ingredient, it is also known for its great medical benefits and helping with weight loss.

Turmeric can help you lose weight by:

  • Reducing the growth of fat tissues
  • Reducing BMI (body mass index)
  • Regulating sugar levels

A study of 44 people who have been identified as overweight has shown up to 5% improvement in losing weight by just adding Turmeric to their daily diet for a month. 

How to consume Turmeric?

It is super easy to incorporate this spice into your daily diet. You can simply buy it in tablet form, which with other herbs like Ginger can show great benefits not only for weight loss but also for your overall health. 

Internal Youth has an excellent Organic Immune System Supplement with two main ingredients: Turmeric & Ginger. If you prefer to take this supplement in a tablet form, ensure the product contains at least 150-250 mg of curcuminoids per serving. You can find this information in the product ingredient description. 

Alternatively, you can add this spice to your food as part of flavouring. There are tonnes of great recipes online that you can find for adding Turmeric to your meals.


4. Cinnamon

Cinnamon has been a very popular spice as it compliments many different dishes. But not many people are aware of its health benefits, especially when it comes to weight management. 

It’s a spice made from the inner bark of tropical, evergreen trees. It can be found in any supermarket and easily added to your daily diet.

Cinnamon can help you lose weight by:

  • Having an effect on blood glucose levels
  • Improving digestion
  • Decreasing appetite

When consuming Cinnamon, one teaspoon contains 1.6 grams of fibre, which can help you reach your daily fibre goal and increase a feeling of fullness at meals.

How to add Cinnamon to your diet?

I am sure you already can think of many different ways to add Cinnamon to your daily diet. For example, simply sprinkling it on your toast or porridge. But let me save you the trouble and share some easy-to-make recipes here

If you prefer the tablet form to ensure you’re consuming the right amount each day, check out Internal Youth’s Fat Burner Capsules, which include Cinnamon as one of the main ingredients. Always look out for purely organic and natural products like this one. 

When consuming fat burners choosing the most organic product will help you avoid nasty side effects.
