Looking For A Weight Loss Remedy?
No matter what your goal is, finding that one perfect food item or drink which can magically shrink your waistline is not possible! The right weight loss regime requires the right workout and eating the right foods. What if we tell you, one simple ingredient can double up your efforts and make losing weight a lot easier?
Add jaggery to your drink
While we all know that jaggery is nutritious and a healthier alternative to sugar, what we often miss out on are the benefits it carries for weight watchers!
Drink it empty stomach
Having a glass of warm water every morning stabilizes your body’s temperature, revs up your metabolism and clears out toxins and waste. Adding jaggery to the drink would not just make it sweeter, but also carry a lot more benefits for your health.
Drinking jaggery and warm water in the morning can clear up your stomach, improve your digestion and keep problems like acidity, constipation and digestive ailments at bay.
It also assists in the right secretion of gastric juices, hence, keeping away the root cause which leads to weight gain away. The remedy has some backing in Ayurveda too.
What does Ayurveda say?
How can it help in weight loss?
Jaggery is a rich source of potassium, magnesium, vitamins B1, B6 and C. Plus, it is loaded with good fibre amount, which removes toxins and helps clean your digestive system easy. The potassium content in it helps balance out the electrolyte and mineral level in the body, boosts metabolism and gives you some energy to build up a sweat when you workout. Jaggery and warm water also help detoxify the body. Most, of, all, it’s not an empty calorie source and instead, comes backed with goodness.
It has several other benefits too

Some studies also suggest that jaggery, with its potent nutrient-rich benefits, can also keep and alleviate certain symptoms of seasonal cold, cough and flu which come with the changing season. Consider this to boost your immunity in an easy way!

Not to forget, it is not nutrient deficient like sugar. It helps boost resistance against infections, hence building stronger immunity.
