(10 Shooking Herbs & Spices For Pet Weight Loss)


Herbs and spices are great for adding some flavor to your foods, but research shows that some of them actually help you shed pounds.


1. Ginseng

Some forms of ginseng can actually help speed up metabolism while boosting energy. According to the University of Maryland, panax ginseng has weigh loss properties. Panax ginseng’s effect on weight and metabolism isn’t completely understood. It is thought to help modulate carbohydrate metabolism, making it potentially useful for managing blood sugar in pets with diabetes. According to some studies dogs given Panax ginseng extracts experienced significant weight reduction after 21 days.


2. Cayenne Pepper

The main ingredient of cayenne pepper is capsaicin. Capsaicin helps burn fat and suppress appetite. Cayenne pepper also increases metabolism which causes the body to burn more calories. As with all herbs, spices and any other nutraceuticals, use under direction of a veterinary nutritionist or holistic vet.


3. Cinnamon

Cinnamon is one of my favorite spices. Cinnamon helps to lower blood sugar and LDL cholesterol (bad cholesterol). Research conducted has shown that cinnamon can boost metabolism and increase insulin levels, lowering the risk for pre-diabetes. Cinnamon is also a natural preservative. 


4. Piperine

Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper. According to the University of Oklahoma, black pepper improves digestion, helps burns fat a a higher rate and can “potentially burn as many calories as walking your dog for 20 minutes.”


5. Dandelions

Dandelions are absolutely amazing. Dandelions help to cleanse the body and slows down digestion. According to the USDA, dandelions rank among the top four vegetables of nutritional value. 


6. Mustard Seed

Mustard seed is an important ingredient in mustard and it is also sold individually. According to research conducted by England’s Oxford Polytechnic Institute, one teaspoon of mustard can speed up the metabolic rate by 25%. Mustard seeds can be good for weight loss because they are low in calories. 


7. Tumeric

Turmeric is a common spice found in India and it has shown to help break down fat and regulate the body’s metabolism. Turmeric can also help reduce the chance of diabetes.


8. Ginger

We love ginger and use this amazing spice to suppress appetite, aid in digestion, remove toxins and raise body temperature to boost metabolism. 


9. Cardamom

Cardamom adds great flavor water or food and smells great. Cardamom boosts metabolism and helps with digestion.


10. Cumin Seed

Cumin seed like many other herbs and spices listed here helps aid in digestions while boosting energy levels. Research has also shown that cumin seeds can help with those who have arthritis, kidney disease and colon cancer.
