Fitness Tip#359 - April 18, 2013

Most of us associate turmeric with curry and a strong spicy flavor in
our food. But it is also a fantastic metabolism boosting compound
that aids in absorption and digestion of carbohydrates in the small
intestine, as well as the metabolism of fats in the liver. As an added
bonus, turmeric can lower cholesterol, inhibit formation of blood
clots and act as both an anti-inflammatory and an anti-oxidant. Keep
turmeric in your spice cupboard and next time you sauté a chicken
breast, add a dash of turmeric, curry and a handful of cashews to the
mix for a savory metabolism boosting meal. Citrus aurantium extract from the dried immature fruit of the bitter orange can act in a similar manner to turmeric. More effective than ephedrine on thermo genesis, this extract increases metabolic rate without the side effects. It helps suppress appetite and increase the release of fatty acids from storage. As a bonus, athletes benefit from
the ability to exercise longer without exhaustion or lean tissue loss! This extract can be found in the supplement ThermoFactor.

I personally use this for my inflammation in my knees. I didn’t know
about the metabolism boosting.
