Seaweed Soup

Seaweed is commonly used in Asian soups and salads.

Research shows that fucoxanthin – a compound found in the brown seaweed, promotes weight loss in two ways:

1. It stimulates a protein called UCP1. This unique protein encourages thermogenesis – the conversion of body fat into heat.

2. It stimulates the production of docosahexanoic acid (DHA) in the liver. This essential omega-3 fatty acid improves blood sugar balance, reducing the body’s storage of fat.
