Green tea is part of the Asian culture for more than 4000 years ago. It's been used as a natural medicine and enjoyable drink since then. Green tea speeds up 4% metabolism without increasing heart rate. The content of antioxidants made it preferable beverage now days.

Peppers are great source of potassium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B and magnesium. Capsaicin has an enormous antioxidant power. Red chilies have high amount of fibers as well which is beneficial in terms of internal cleansing.

Cinnamon aids digestion. Well known fact is the positive effect of cinnamon by lowing blood sugar level which helps boosting metabolism. It’s highly recommended antioxidant which decreases the urge to smoke. The essential oil in cinnamon can naturally preserve food from bacterial growth.
