We find out if this miracle ingredient can be beneficial for weight loss and digestion
The holiday season is upon us and with it come delicious sweets, high-calorie drinks, and hearty meals. The post-holiday bloat can put a downer on celebrations by inducing digestive troubles and adding a few extra pounds. Bloating also comes with an energy crash and can make you feel sluggish, which is definitely not a great way to end the year. Enter moringa: A nutritious superfood, and aid for weight loss and weight management. According to a study published on the National Library of Medicine, moringa for weight loss has shown impressive results by inhibiting the formation of adipocytes (fat cells) and promoting lipolysis, the process by which fats are broken down in our bodies through enzymes and water. It may stimulate digestion and also helps boost energy levels. Including moringa in your daily diet may have multiple benefits: keeping your weight in check, relieving digestive distress and stabilizing energy imbalances that holiday bingeing can cause.
Why should you use moringa for weight loss?
Several nutritionists and fitness advisors are now recommending moringa for weight loss. The nutrient-rich superfood may help reduce and maintain weight in several different ways:
- Feel satiated: Consuming moringa keeps you satisfied and reduces cravings. One study indicates that moringa can be used to regulate ghrelin secretions, the hormone responsible for hunger, which helps keep you feeling full for longer periods. The superfood is a powerhouse of nutrients like vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, which keep your body healthy and energized. Consuming moringa eliminates hunger pangs that may happen due to a lack of nutrients in your diet.
- Improve digestion: Holiday food is full of tough-to-digest substances like processed sugars and fortified foods, which can lead to poor digestion and increase feelings of fatigue, stress and insomnia. All these feelings can in turn lead to weight gain. The inability to absorb nutrients from the food you eat affects the body’s metabolic rate. Fatty foods are also high in toxins, a build-up of which can cause bloating and constipation. Moringa is full of fibers that aid digestion and relieve imbalances and discomfort. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that help detoxify the body after a season of unhealthy bingeing.
- Decrease water retention: Foods high in fat and carbohydrates tend to increase the rate of water retention in the body. This can cause bloating and unintentional weight gain. You can trust the anti-inflammatory properties of moringa for weight loss, which also helps reduce water retention and bloating.
- Speed up metabolism: Your body’s metabolism dictates the rate at which it burns calories. The presence of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibers in moringa helps speed up the metabolic process, aiding quicker and natural weight loss. Research also suggests that moringa can be beneficial in speeding up metabolic activity in humans.
