Helps Weight Loss
Tamarind has unique compounds that are connected to weight loss because they have been shown to stop an enzyme in the body that specifically helps to store fat. Also, tamarind suppresses the appetite by increasing the serotonin neurotransmitter.
Besides helping to stop weight gain, inhibiting that same enzyme, alpha-amylase, stops carbohydrates from being absorbed. These carbs are usually converted to simple sugars and fats if they aren’t inhibited. A diet high in carbs can increase the chances of getting diabetes and not controlling sugar levels.
