Cinnamon for weight loss.
Another miraculous property of cinnamon is that it promotes fast and safe for health weight loss. Thanks to this spice, you can shed up to 2 kilograms of extra weight per week without exhausting yourself with long monotonous diets and heavy physical exercises.
Why does cinnamon promote weight loss?
This spice has the ability to several times increase the metabolism in the body, thanks to which fat deposits are burned faster.
The incoming food will be converted into energy faster, not having time to «settle» in the fat tissues. Also cinnamon speeds up the processing of sugars, normalizing blood glucose levels. In addition, cinnamon restores the normal functioning of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulating the natural processes of self-cleaning of the body.
Excess fluids and accumulated toxins will also easily leave the body under the influence of cinnamon. It is also worth saying about the influence of the aroma of this spice on the nervous system: it noticeably reduces the appetite, allowing you to satiate even a small portion of food.
This is not only a burning effect of cinnamon, but also a way to improve the health and functions of many systems of the body. It is only necessary to use cinnamon in the right proportions, temporarily reducing the amount of fats and carbohydrates in the diet.
The use of sweet buns even with a very large amount of cinnamon, alas, will not help the process of losing weight, because sugars and fats interfere with the action of this spice.
Kefir with cinnamon for weight loss
A tasty and low-calorie drink made of kefir with cinnamon is very popular among those who want to lose weight. Its success lies in the fact that it is not harmful to health, satiates for a long time, and, of course, gives a quick noticeable result.

In this case, weight loss will be slower, but the result will be fixed more reliably. In a week of such a diet it is quite realistic to lose 2-3 kg;
Not only lose weight, but also improve the work of the intestines will help cocktail of kefir with cinnamon and an apple.
The green apple is grated and mixed with a glass of kefir and a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon. Thanks to the fiber, which is found in large quantities in apples, this drink will help cleanse the intestines and remove harmful deposits from them;
For the same purpose, bran and prunes can be added to the kefir drink. One glass of kefir, two tablespoons of bran, two soft prunes and a quarter teaspoon of cinnamon are needed for one portion of the cocktail.
All the components are mixed in a blender, the resulting mixture is placed in the refrigerator for 30 minutes — during this time, the bran will swell, and the drink will be ready to use. This recipe is often used to treat and prevent constipation.
