Herbs not only add enticing aroma, fresh flavor, and vivid color to our food but also offer remarkable health benefits. These luscious leaves boast natural antioxidant properties, essential oils, and vitamins that have been demonstrated by modern science as health boosters. One of the notable health benefits offered by herbs is quickening our metabolic processes. These plants speed up our metabolism to burn calories and fat more quickly. Here are the herbs that have been demonstrated by scientific study to have anti-obesity potential.

1. Turmeric

This brightly colored spice contains a pigment called curcumin which has been investigated as a treatment for obesity and obesity-related metabolic diseases. Turmeric is one of the spices that exhibit effects against obesity according to a 2010 study [1] published in the journal Annual Review of Nutrition.

2. Parsley

This aromatic herb is a natural diuretic that is helpful in curbing appetite and reducing food cravings. Parsley is rich in vitamins A, B, and C and iron. The Textbook of Natural Medicine, by Joseph E. Pizzorno cited parsley as one of the herbs that exhibit anti-obesity properties. [2]

3. Peppermint

This cooling and calming herb acts as a natural hunger suppressant. It stimulates the functioning of the digestive system and aids your body in curbing appetite, [3] reducing cravings and increasing the sense of satiety after eating.

4. Ginseng

This widely used herb is popular for its memory-boosting effects and its ability to promote weight loss. Ginseng acts as a stimulant to boost metabolism and boost energy levels – which are factors beneficial for weight loss. A 2014 study confirmed the weight loss benefit offered by ginseng to obese middle-aged Korean women. [4]

5. Fennel

Fennel is another diuretic herb that suppresses your appetite and decreases water retention in the body. This herb can speed up metabolism by efficiently burning fat and sugar – which are released into the bloodstream to used as energy. A Korean study [5] revealed the effectiveness of the fennel tea in suppressing the appetite of overweight women.

6. Fenugreek

The seeds of this amazing herb offer relief for anemia and loss of taste and are reported beneficial for fever, dandruff, and stomach disorders. They have long been used as a herbal medicine for addressing metabolic functions. One study [6] showed the role of repeated administration of a fenugreek seed extract in decreasing dietary fat consumption in overweight women.

7. Hawthorn

The metabolic effect of this herb was determined by a study [7] using patients with high cardiovascular risk. The study used hawthorn vinegar supplementation which lowered the body weight of the patients.

8. Sage

Sage leaf tea is used for aiding weight loss due to its stimulant and diuretic properties. Daily consumption of sage leaf tea [8] can help you eliminate the toxins out of your body and increase your metabolic rate, all of which are very important in weight loss.

9. Oregano

In 2016, the Journal of Essential Oil Research mentioned oregano oil as one of the essential oils that has potential anti-obesity properties. The study focused on plant-derived essential oils which contain volatile organic compounds that have effects on obesity.

10. Dandelions

This “weed” has some weight loss benefits that help slow your digestion. You can maintain a healthy weight by consuming dandelion leaves as part of a salad – which make you feel full longer. Dandelions are rich in vitamins A, C, and E and offer minerals like iron and potassium. Dandelion also contains a compound called taraxacum which has feen found to have anti-obesity effects. [10]
