    Interesting! I knew that green tea is able to increase metabolism because of the catechin and polyphenols in it.. I think ginger has a similar effect, but I had never heard that cardamon helped. How does it aid in weight loss? Does it also increase metabolism?

      Hi Jim….like green tea, cardomon contains ‘thermogenics’ which means it can increase the amount of heat in our bodies so can aid in weight loss by increasing metabolism. Hope this answers your questions!
