our final story today. We look at how the spice cumin can work as well as orlistat. The (expletive) leakage obesity drug in
my video benefits of black cumin for weight loss. Total of 17 randomized, controlled trial, showed that the sea. Apple spice, could reduce cholesterol and triglycerides and the side effects all weight loss. Of fact, saffron is another spice found to be effective for treating, a major cause of suffering depression. In this case, with a side effect of decreased appetite, when put to the test in a randomized, double-blind placebo-controlled, trial, saffron indeed was found to lead to a significant weight loss, five pounds, more than Placebo in an extra inch off the waste in eight weeks, the dose of saffron used in the study. What's the equivalent of drinking? A cup of tea made from a large pinch of saffron threads. Suspecting the active ingredient might be crocin, the pigment in Saffron that accounts for its crimson color. Researchers also tried giving people just the purified pigment that led to weight loss to, but it didn't do as well as the full saffron extract. Being the placebo by only 2 pounds and half an inch. The mechanism appeared to be appetite suppression as the croson group ended up, averaging about. Eating fewer calories a day. Where's the full saffron group consumed, 170 calories less a day on average. A similar study looks specifically at snacking frequency the researcher stop, perhaps the mood boosting effects of saffron, might cut down on stress related, eating and eat eight weeks of a saffron extract. Did cut snack intake in half compared to Placebo, accompanied by a slight. But statistically significant weight loss about two pounds. Even a loss of a few pounds is pretty remarkable, given that. Tiny doses utilized about 100 mg which is equivalent to about an eighth of a teaspoon of the spice. The problem is that saffron is the most expensive spice in the world. It's composed of delicate threads sticking up out of the saffron crocus flower. Each flower produces only a few threads. So you need fifty thousand flowers to make a single pound of spice enough flowers to cover a football field so that pinch of saffron could cost. A dollar a day. That's why my 21 tweaks to accelerate weight loss and how not to diet instead of saffron include black cumin, which at a quarter teaspoon a day would only cost three cents a day. What about just regular cumin used in Cuisines around the world from Tex-Mex to the South Asian. Cumin is the second most popular spice on Earth. After black pepper. It's one of the oldest cultivated plants with a range of purported medicinal uses, but only recently, has it been put to the test for weight loss? Those randomized to a half teaspoon of both lunch and dinner over three months. Lost about four more pounds in the next 2 inch off their waste. The spice was found comparable. To the Obesity drug known as orlistat. For those of you don't remember. That's the (expletive) leakage drug. You may have heard about sold under the brand names. A line xenical though, the drug company. Apparently prefers the term fecal spotting to describe the rectal discharge. It causes the drug company's website offered some helpful tips, though. It's probably a smart idea to wear dark pants and bring a change of clothes with you to work. You know, just in case their drug caused you to (expletive) your pants. It work. I think I'll stick with the cumin. Thank you very much.
