Beginning in 2010, in the second decade of May, the world celebrates the day to combat obesity. This fact alone indicates that overweight has become one of the global problems.
Here is the WHO statistics: over the past three decades, the number of people with pathologically high weight has doubled. According to forecasts, by 2025 almost half of the world's population will need treatment for obesity.
The life of a person who has been diagnosed with obesity is much less comfortable, and, according to statistics, is shorter by 10 years than the life of the lucky ones with ideal weight. To maintain a slim figure, you certainly need to eat right, move more, take care of the environment. And if your body mass index is already above the norm, but has not yet reached obesity, natural means for losing weight can help to adjust the weight.
Most often, the media advertise slimming teas that act as a laxative or diuretic. The result, at first glance, they give fast, but they cannot be called harmless, they are also unlikely to be effective. Such teas do not eliminate the accumulated reserves of fat, they only remove fluid, and in fact dehydration is fraught with unpleasant consequences. Doctors say that these remedies are good if obesity is accompanied by edema, in which case removal of fluid from the tissues is really necessary.
But to remove subcutaneous fat reserves and begin to lose weight, it is better to use herbal preparations, which are based on accelerating the process of splitting neutral fat or suppressing appetite. If the amount of calories received by the body is less than its needs, the body will begin to use those “extra” kilograms for energy needs. To the plants - "fat burners" refers chicory.
What does chicory contain and how does it act on the body?
The name of this perennial plant with bright blue flowers, the family of Astrov, comes from the Greek words "go" and "field". In the East, dried and ground chicory root has long been used as a cheap coffee substitute. On the territory of Russia, "roadside coffee" came into vogue in the 18th century, the plant received the name "Petrov Batog" or "Golden Root". His decoction was added to the morning coffee to give it an original taste.
What is chicory useful for?
Chicory gained worldwide popularity when studying the properties of a plant revealed that it is a storehouse of beneficial substances and promotes weight loss. Golden Root contains vitamins:
- C (ascorbic acid), B2 (riboflavin), K (phylloquinone) - are involved in the conversion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy.
- B3 (niacin) - plays an important role in the processes of protein metabolism.
- B1 (thiamine) - is involved in carbohydrate, fat, protein, water-salt metabolism.
- B5 (pantothenic acid) - activates the process of burning fat.
- E (tocopherol) reduces the level of "bad" cholesterol.
In addition, this plant is rich in trace elements important for the body: potassium, magnesium, and iron. Prebiotics fructooligosaccharides in its composition, stimulate the growth of beneficial intestinal microflora.
With regard to the use of chicory for weight loss, the main reason for the effectiveness is the presence in its roots:
- Inulin. Getting into the digestive system, this polysaccharide is transformed into fructose, which serves as a good source of energy, but does not contribute to weight gain. In addition, inulin inhibits the absorption of fats and carbohydrates.
- Intibina. Glycoside, which gives chicory a bitter taste. It has the ability to accelerate metabolic processes and prevent body fat.
- Pectin. This polysaccharide is considered a natural fat burner that promotes the use of adipocytes (the cells that make up subcutaneous fat) for energy needs.
- Cellulose. Being themselves not a source of energy, fiber fibers slow down the processes of assimilation of nutrients, and also create a feeling of saturation, which persists for a long time.
Considering that with one chicory you can quickly begin to lose weight and lose a large number of kilograms, it is not necessary. But in combination with a low-calorie diet, feasible sports activities, this plant will help to lose weight and, most importantly, will help to maintain weight in the normal range.

Tatyana, 52 years old

I do not know how about losing weight, but I have very little excess weight - it is quite possible that also thanks to this favorite drink.
I usually use soluble chicory, I like it more than the extract in jars - the taste is better, the color is nicer, not so dark. I read that the combination of milk and chicory is not all tolerated. I had no problems. Milk adds softness to the drink, and instead of sugar, I put a spoonful of honey.
On the advice of a friend two years ago for slimming "hooked" on chicory. At first I tried to roast and grind the roots myself, but then I switched to a less laborious option: I began to buy instant powder “Health” in the store. Over time, my husband joined me, and then the children, they liked the "adult" drink, like coffee.
For two years I have lost a lot of weight - I lost about 5 kg, practically without changing my lifestyle and without using any diets. The doctor said that the reason is an improvement in metabolism. It may be an individual reaction, but I also had headaches that I could get rid of only with the help of analgesics earlier.
