Top 3 Essential Oils for Losing Weight

In today’s world, we have all realized that keeping our bodies healthy and fit is a top priority. Many are realizing that fast food, soda, processed food, sweets and living sedentary lives are a thing of the past. There are many lifestyle changes in helping you achieve your fitness goals. Eating clean, daily exercise and a balanced lifestyle are all integral parts in unlocking the quest for overall health and happiness. Did you know that essential oils can help support this lifestyle? Although, essential oils on their own will not lead to weight loss, these can still be utilized in supporting and triggering the body to enhance fat burning. Some benefits of essential oil for weight loss include the reduction of water retention. They also reduce food craving and help ease emotional stress and boost the metabolism. Here are the top 3 essential oils that we have researched on for losing weight:

  • Grapeseed Oil
  Via: The Haelthy and Natural World (http://www.healthyandnaturalworld.com/best-essential-oils-for-weight-loss/) “The best EO (Essential Oil) out there to suppress appetite, increase energy, prevent water retention, reduce the appearance of cellulite, prevent bloating, and dissolve fat. It helps to cleanse and detox your body from excess toxins and fat. You can find helpful information about the concept of detox in my e-book The Detox Guide, which will teach you how to cleanse and energize your body naturally and safely.”
  • Cinnamon
  Via: Natural Living Ideas (http://www.naturallivingideas.com/the-complete-guide-to-using-essential-oils-for-weight-loss/) Insulin is the hormone responsible for metabolizing carbohydrates and fat by facilitating the absorption of blood glucose by either converting it to energy or storing it as fat. When cells in the body stop responding to insulin – a condition called insulin resistance – the body erroneously begins to store fat instead of burning it, resulting in not only weight gain but also in difficulty losing weight. Leading to high blood sugar and elevated blood insulin levels, it is a precursor for Type 2 diabetes. Cinnamon extract, however, has been shown to help heighten insulin sensitivity in the brain and increase the rate of blood glucose uptake. Up to 25% of Americans are affected by metabolic syndrome, a confluence of disorders that include impaired glucose tolerance, abdominal obesity, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and high blood cholesterol. Certain inflammatory cells have been identified in the body fat of genetically obese people; cinnamon extract has demonstrated the ability to inhibit the production of these molecules, which could be an important factor for preventing weight gain in the first place.”
  • Ginger
  Via: Dr. Axe (http://draxe.com/essential-oils-for-weight-loss/) “Ginger works because it also reduces sugar cravings and helps reduce inflammation in the body. It’s so important that if you’re going to lose weight, that you’re also reducing inflammation, and supporting digestion and absorption of nutrients. The compounds in ginger are called gingerols. Gingerols have been scientifically proven to reduce disease-causing inflammation in your intestines and overall improve absorption of the vitamins and minerals you’re consuming. If you’re absorbing more vitamins and minerals, then you’re helping to support your body’s cellular energy and create weight loss. A 2013 study published in the Indian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology concluded that ginger essential oil possesses antioxidant activity as well as significant anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive properties. After being treated with ginger essential oil for one month, enzyme levels increased in the blood of mice. The dose also scavenged free radicals and produced significant reduction in acute inflammation.” Not only do these oils smell good but they also have these amazing benefits. These are all reasons to try them out today. Diffuse in your Bellasentials Aromatherpy Oil diffuser and let us know how you like them. Remember, this is not a miracle worker. Healthy food choices and daily exercise are the essential keys to losing weight. Always ask your doctor for medical advice if and when essential oils are to be ingested. Stay inspired, ladies!
