In this tea ginger supports digestion, fragrant cinnamon helps to regulate blood sugar and has anti-microbial properties, persimmons are a natural remedy for acid reflux and turmeric along with the black pepper has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer properties. Persimmon is great for weight loss and good for your waistline because: - Fiber source: Just one persimmon contains six grams of fiber, which is already about a quarter of your recommended daily value. Fiber digests slowly, so it keeps you fuller longer. - Cravings cure: The fiber in persimmons, called pectin, is responsible for another appetite-controlling feature: pectin helps regulate blood-sugar levels to keep them from spiking, which can help prevent blood-sugar-crash-related cravings. - Flat belly: Persimmons are known for their stomach-soothing properties, so eating the fruit may help you feel less bloated or constipated. Note, however, that in rare cases, eating too many persimmons, especially on an empty stomach, can lead to a bezoar (an intestinal obstruction) because of the fruit's highly fibrous properties.
