Several factors can be at the origin of belly fat. These include hormonal upheavals, chronic stress, a sedentary lifestyle, or an unbalanced diet. However, there are two types of abdominal fat: subcutaneous fat, present under the skin directly, and visceral fat, present under the muscle and which is more difficult to eradicate.
The way to get rid of it, is not the same, for example for the latter, to practice a sports activity every day for 45 minutes would be enough to start its combustion. In contrast to visceral fat, the process is more complex, it must first reduce the daily stress, then adopt a healthier lifestyle, and detoxify the body.
It must be known that the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and skin are responsible for the elimination of toxins. However, the excessive presence of these in our body disrupts their operation. Indeed, when the body saturates with toxins, the function of the emunctory organs decreases. They are no longer able to eliminate the toxic substances that are present in virtually everything around us, including the air and the food we eat. It is therefore impossible to avoid them, and the solution is to follow detoxifying cures to eradicate them and find the proper functioning of the body.
Scientific research has shown that certain natural foods have health benefits and can contribute to the functioning of emunctory organs. Here is a list that you will use as a detox drink to help you get a flat stomach.
A study has shown that citric acid contained in lemon, could treat toxic and inflammatory conditions. As lemon, has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. A second study proved in turn that thanks to the polyphenols present in the lemon, the latter could reduce the number of fat cells.
Turmeric is rich in curcumin, and it has been proven in a study that curcumin has detoxifying benefits for the body. It also regulates insulin, and also reduces the inflammatory consequences of obesity. The latter helps boost the metabolism and therefore accelerate the burning of fat.
Indeed, a study conducted on piperine, the main active compound of black pepper, has shown that the latter prevents the accumulation of lipids and lipoproteins. It thus makes it possible to eliminate unwanted fat cells.
Ginger, on the other hand, would reduce body weight, as well as fasting glucose, according to one study.
