How does turmeric tea becomes a fat-reducing drink? The answer is simple. Curcumin, a substance found in turmeric suppresses the expansion and growth of fat tissue by decreasing the development of new blood vessels in fat tissue.

Besides, turmeric tea is an excellent pick-me-up drink after a long day at work and helps you feel happy and bubbly again. Turmeric is definitely a spice worth adding to your diet!


3. Lemon Ginger Tea

It is a universal fact that both lemon and ginger are two excellent fat-reducing agents. Imagine mixing these two ingredients in your drink? The results: the perfect slimming drink. Lemon and ginger have the ability to boost the immune system, reduce fever, improve cognition, regulate blood sugar, aid digestion, soothe pain, increase hair health and protect the skin.

Although it is called as a type of tea, the truth is this drink does not require you to infuse the lemon and ginger root in a pot of tea. Weird, right? But who cares, because it is delicious!


4. Apple Cinnamon Water

If you love the taste of apples and cinnamon, we bet you will love the combined taste of these two ingredients even better. Both apples and cinnamon can raise your metabolism rate and to make it is no rocket science.

Just combine sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, and water in a (preferably) glass pitcher or large jar, let the combination steep or diffuse in the refrigerator overnight or at least for several hours, and serve. Should you want it stronger, add more apples or slice them thinner.


5. Mango Ginger Water

Our last and final fat-reducing drink is the mango ginger water. We all know ginger is a natural metabolism booster as well as a natural pain reliever. Whether you are suffering from a terrible migraine or severe menstrual cramps, the ginger is there to help you!

However, you must be wondering what is the nutritional benefits of mangoes in this drink. Well, mangoes are added in this drink as flavouring as well as to cut the spiciness of the ginger in the drink.



With these 5 fat-reducing drinks, you no longer have to kill yourself in the gym for an hour straight just to lose a couple of kilos. However, do remember that these drinks will only work if you pair them up with a bowl of salad or lean meats. You are not going to see any results if you are drinking them with a plate of oily mee goreng.
