Men's Fitness magazine warns that one should be careful not to overuse using caffeine, taurine and ephedrine to boost metabolism because they can overtax the adrenal glands.

Another recommendation from Doctor Oz for boosting metabolism is kombucha. Kombucha is a Japanese-style drink made from fermented tea. It is bubbly and has a tart taste. It is usually found in natural markets and health food stores. It has no artificial sweeteners; instead, it is made with cane juice. Kombucha also contains oolong tea, which is helpful for protecting the liver.

Doctor Oz also suggests trying a homemade spicy red ice drink. This is made by combining ice chips, a bit of mint and a spicy red wine. The wine has the ability to boost metabolism after drinking it, and the ice chips force the body to burn calories in order to warm the liquid.
