No Luck Raising Your Body Temperature with Kelp? Try These All-Natural Ways to Boost Your Temperature
The most common recommendation for people with low body temperature is to take kelp supplements. We know because we followed this recommendation, too. But if you dig a little deeper, you discover that kelp doesn’t work for everyone. In fact, it only has an effect on people who’s low body temperatures are due to low thyroid levels caused by an iodine deficiency.
And if you live in the developed world, where we consume quite a lot of salt – you most likely don’t have an iodine deficiency. Which means your low body temperature is probably due to other causes, like low thyroid function.
Whatever the reason for your low body temperature might be, though, this entire post is dedicated to all-natural ways of raising your body temp. Follow along to see which foods you can easily add into your diet to boost your temperature!
EAT More Often
We all live in a diet-crazy world that puts an inordinately high value on slimness. But simply eating more highly nutritious whole foods is one of the best things you can for your body (and boobs).
This doesn’t mean to have 3-hour binge sessions in front of the TV – eating more in the best way possible means eating more often. Set a hourly timer and whenever it goes off – that’s your cue to eat just one handful of something.
Make sure it’s nutritious something and snack away. Giving your body small meals throughout the day helps boost your metabolism (and thus, your body temp) and getting plenty of nutritious food is great for your breasts.
Stock Up On Protein
Yes, yes – we’ve said it soooo many times, but the importance of protein can’t be denied, especially if you’re trying to boost your body temperature. Body temp and metabolism are directly related and proteins – like beef, pork, eggs, fish, etc. – are proven metabolism boosters because they require more energy for your body to burn.
Also, high protein foods are high in amino acids, which help regulate the thyroid and increase body temperature.
If you’re a vegan, vegetarian, or simply don’t like the taste of meat – make sure you’re getting enough protein by supplementing with a protein powder or incorporating super protein-rich foods like edamame and other beans and peas into your diet.
As far as protein powders go, whey protein is the best for those who just don’t like the taste of meat; as for those who don’t consume animal products – go with hemp protein (it’s all natural, plant-based and doesn’t contain other not-good-for-you fillers like other “vegan” protein powders) but also add an amino complex supplement to your diet.
Replace Simple Carbs with Complex Carbs
Simple carbs like are made up of one or two sugars and are easily digested whereas complex carbs are harder to digest and thus, help heat up your body. According to the Thermogenic Diet by John Jones, the increase in thermogenesis from complex carbs is around 4%.
Get Plenty of Omega-3s
Omega-3s are great for you – everybody knows it, it’s all over the news. But why do they matter for body temp or breast enhancement? Well, essential fatty acids like omega-3 are the precursors of prostaglandins.
These chemicals are produced only from the essential fatty acids and they’re mighty important – they operate in most tissues of the body to regulate just about every bodily function including your digestion, your healing processes, your immune system, body temperature and you guessed it – the development of sexual characteristics (i.e. boobies and hips).
Best sources of omega-3s? Fish like salmon and tuna are great, as well as omega-3-rich oils like flaxseed and walnut oil. If you’re not getting enough of either, supplement with high quality fish oil pills.
Load Up on Spices
You already know cayenne pepper fires up your metabolism but also add other spicy condiments and spices to your diet like mustard, chili sauce, and salsa. An top your drinks with heat-enhancing cinnamon – it’s one of the best thermogenic spices out there.
Add Superfoods to Your Diet
Superfoods are simply foods that provide the same benefits “regular” foods do…but in spades. The best superfoods to rev up your metabolism and boost your body temperature are coconut oil, bee pollen, and ginger.
These 3 should be a part of every person who has low body temperature. Coconut oil is a MUST – this oil has high saturated fat content (which is actually great for raising your body temp) but the fats in coconut oil are medium-chain fatty acids which are broken down by the body and converted into energy rather than being stored as fat. This energy-converting action raises your core temperature, plus you’ll get a welcome boost in energy as well.
Bee pollen is just amazing – it not only boosts your body temperature, it is one of the most complete nutritional foods out there. It’s about 40% protein – so you get plenty of that – and it’s got around 22 amino acids plus 14 varieties of fatty acids, 11 enzymes or co-enzymes, 59 trace elements, 25 minerals, and 18 vitamins. Just a scoop or two a day is enough to make sure you’re supplying your body with a whole lotta nutrients.
As for ginger – this funky looking root is amazing for its ability to raise body temp, as well as increase blood flow in the body, get rid of nausea, and it’s even been found to kill cancer cells. Drink this stuff in tea, cook with it or even better – blend it raw with some greens and a banana for an amazingly healthy smoothie.
