Burning chili pepper – a really hot guy. Even a very small amount of it raises the body temperature, accelerates the heartbeat and metabolism. While this effect lasts, your body burns slightly more calories than usual. And Chile stimulates the production of enzymes necessary for the digestion of food, lowers cholesterol, improves the condition of blood vessels and fights against bacteria (no wonder it is often used in the cuisine of southern countries, where the climate is not conducive to long preservation of food).
If you want to lose weight, buy ginger in an industrial scale. It improves the metabolic processes is not worse than Chile, has a strong antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effect, helps us to produce enzymes for digestion – therefore, in the countries of South-East Asia candied ginger is often served at the end of the meal as a digestif. It lowers blood pressure, increases efficiency and ingenuity.

Cumin is not only good in baking – you can add it to rice dishes and meat.
Indian healers have used cardamom to improve digestion several thousand years ago. And they were absolutely right – the current research showed that this spice really gets rid of such troubles as bloating, heartburn and diarrhea.
And the cardamom is a powerful diuretic that helps in fighting swelling – and they often give those extra 2-3 pounds that are so difficult to lose even with exercise.
Cinnamon slightly reduces the level of sugar in the blood and, therefore, lowers the appetite. Two teaspoons of cinnamon powder lower blood sugar by about 30%. You should use this ability of cinnamon, adding a little coffee. On a bun it will have exactly the same effect, but it will completely undo the bun itself.
