Garlic is one of the best foods to boost the metabolism and suppress the appetite. Garlic also helps because its volatile oil tricks the brain into believing that the stomach is full, and this reaction makes hunger disappear more quickly. To put it in more scientific terms, garlic triggers the sensation of satiety and reduces appetite by increasing the responsiveness of the brain to leptin, the hormone that regulates metabolism and the appetite.
Garlic also stimulates the production of norepinephrine, which speeds up metabolism, and allicin, the active ingredient in garlic helps reduce blood pressure and insulin levels.
