Despite being a delicious start of the day, the morning cup of coffee also offers numerous health benefits.
It turns out that this hot tasty drink can help you prevent some cancer types, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, and much more!
However, if you add the following three metabolism-boosting ingredients to your coffee, you will get an incredibly beneficial and healthy drink, which can help you shed inches of the waist! What’s more, you probably already have them in your kitchen!
These secret ingredients are cinnamon, honey, and coconut oil!
The potent anti-inflammatory properties of cinnamon have been valued and used for numerous years. It effectively fights inflammation and since it is rich in antioxidants, it neutralizes damage due to free radicals.
Also, it boosts the metabolism of sugar in the blood and thus lowers blood sugar levels. Moreover, cinnamon converts sugars into energy, instead of fat cells, so it prevents the accumulation of excess fat in the body. If possible, always use Cassia or Ceylon cinnamon.
Honey is extremely delicious and full of natural, unprocessed sugar, which is needed for the production of body energy.
It is also high in vitamin C, calcium, niacin, potassium, vitamin B6, folate, riboflavin, zinc, iron, sodium, phosphorus and many other minerals which boost the metabolism. Honey reduces the cholesterol levels and lowers stress and anxiety. Yet, note that you should always use raw honey.
Coconut oil is rich in “medium-chain fatty acids,” which are perfect for accelerating the metabolism. As soon as they are consumed, they are sent down to the liver and are converted into ketone bodies or usable energy. In this way, the metabolism is forced to quickly burn the excess fatty tissue.
- ½-tablespoon honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾-cup coconut oil

Method of preparation:
You should mix all the ingredients in a glass bowl, and transfer the mixture into a mason jar. Store it n the fridge.
