There is a lot of information from many different sources about using natural herbs for weight loss. It is fair to ask the question, "What are the best natural herbs for weight loss and do they really work?"

First of all, yes, some of them work very well along with a sensible diet. Some can help curb the appetite and others can even help boost your metabolism. Here is a list of the twelve most common natural herbs for weight loss and how they work.

Red Hot Chili Pepper - There is recent research that states that the substance that makes chili pepper hot may also inhibit the growth of fat cells -- good news! Also, spicy chili pepper is said to heat up the body's temperature which speeds up the metabolism.

Ginger - Ginger helps aid digestion which helps to rev up the metabolism and burn off excess fat.

Panax Ginseng - Panax Ginseng is known for increasing energy and increasing stamina. It is one of the most well known natural herbs for weight loss.

Stevia - Stevia is an herb that is used in place of sugar as a sweetener. Stevia is not an artificial sweetener like aspartame or splenda which are chemical in nature, but it is a natural sweetener. Liquid Stevia is reported to taste best!

Garcinia Cambogia - Helps to suppress the appetite by raising seretonin levels. It may also inhibit the conversion of sugars and starches into fat.

Bitter Melon - Bitter Melon has been known to lower blood sugar levels and also reduces cravings for sugar.

Guggul - Guggul herb helps to rejuvenate and cleanse the body. It also helps the body to metabolize what is known as the bad cholesterol (LDL).

Banaba - This herb is said to help lower blood sugar which would help to subdue cravings for sweets and other unhealthy carbohydrates.

Cinnamon - Real Cinnamon, Cinnamomum Zeylanicum, not Cassia, is known to help lower blood sugar levels and also cleanse the system which helps to speed metabolism. Cinnamon Cassia is less expensive and is the most common form that is sold in most grocery stores although it is not real cinnamon. They may taste and smell similar but they are not the same in their benefits for weight loss - choose Cinnamomum Zeylanicum for weight loss.

Cha'de Bugre - Cha'de Bugre is getting increasing attention in the USA as a natural appetite suppressant. Additionally, it has been used for many years in South America to increase urine flow as an aid in reducing excess fluids. It is also known to help eliminate cellulite, and boost energy levels.

Yerba Mate - Yerba Mate is actually used as a tea to increase energy and to help suppress the appetite. It can be used in place of coffee because it does contain some caffeine but usually there is no jittery side effects with Yerba Mate as there is with coffee.

Green Tea or Matcha Tea - The EGCG catechins found in green tea have been said to help decrease appetite and boost metabolism because of its cleansing effect on the system. Green tea is used in a dried leaf form and then steeped in hot water to make tea. Matcha tea is powdered green tea leaves and is said to have more concentration although more expensive.

There are many more natural herbs for weight loss, but contained in this list are the most popular. Most are reasonably priced and readily available through your local health food store or through online sources. Never over do with herbs as they can be very powerful. These herbs are considered to be safe but always consult with the health care professional of your choice before incorporating them in your health and diet plan.
