Grapefruit oil is known for reducing stress and improving digestion. But did you know that the oil also helps in losing weight? In fact, it is considered the #1 essential oil for weight loss.
Some essential oils have been known to be used to help with losing weight, and grapefruit is one of the oils that aid in that.
GRAPEFRUIT DIET FAD
The way it works is that grapefruit is used to suppress the appetite. If you have heard of the grapefruit diet fad, you would find that the essential oil works in a similar way. The grapefruit diet fad consists of eating half a grapefruit before every meal.
This is to ensure that you would feel full by the grapefruit, just enough so that you will only eat half a meal. This, in turn, allows you to lose weight as you consume half of what you normally do.
HOW THE OIL WORKS
Similarly, the essential oil also works to suppress the appetite. Massaging 2 – 3 drops of grapefruit oil on the chest and wrists, or adding 2 -3 drops of it in a glass of water can help to keep hunger cravings at bay.
Grapefruit essential oil helps to release fatty acids into the bloodstream, where the body will break it down and convert it to energy. It reduces oxidative damage and lowers cholesterol, which aids in losing weight.
It increases metabolism which helps the body burn fats faster, and releases toxins from the metabolic pathways as well since it is also a diuretic. Toxins in the body usually add unnecessary weight, thus by releasing the toxins, it will remove the possibility of unwanted weight gain.
However, that is not to say that you should depend on the grapefruit entirely, to lose weight fast and easy. It does help with losing weight, but do not expect to see drastic changes overnight. It may take consistent use and a few months to see a drastic weight loss.
