Dietician advises on the belly-busting recipe

Clinical dietician Rudo Tshabalala spoke to Briefly News to explain whether or not Nosisa's combination works to reduce belly fat.

She says:

"Although there isn't much scientific evidence to support the above claims about the weight loss concoction, some of the ingredients used in this mixture are known to affect appetite and metabolism.
"In one study, cayenne paper raised metabolic rates, which is the rate at which the body converts nutrients into energy instead of storing them as fat. Tumeric is well known for its anti-inflammatory benefits and appetite suppressants because it significantly reduces early blood glucose levels. In another study, ginger enhanced thermogenesis, which is the heat production from burning calories."

Rudo also explained that lemon induces thirst and thus increases water intake.

"When you are meeting your water needs, it assists in the body's ability to break down and get rid of fats in the body."

The clinical dietician concludes:

"Again, we do not have enough scientific evidence of weight loss and the long-term benefits of these ingredients, just a study here and there that might make one doubt the claims of the concoction."

Online users react to the woman's drink

Many people in Nosisa's comment section expressed interest in the recipe, while others shared that they had used it before.

@okuhle_gxabashe4, who wanted to give the mixture a try but couldn't, wrote:

"I would love to join you, but my ulcers would never allow me."

Worried about one of the ingredients, @ladyb692 commented:

"But what about the smell of garlic?"

Sharing their experience, @hlulee said:

"My skin is becoming clear. My belly is a bit stubborn, but I am pushing."
