Adding Seaweed to Your Diet Might Actually Help You to Lose Weight

September 10, 2015 2 min read

Are you looking for new ways to lose weight? Who isn't? It seems like we're all very curious as to the newest food trend that will help us shed those unwanted pounds. We'll eat or drink almost anything to get the body we want, as long as it doesn't harm our overall health. So what's the newest food people are crediting for their weight loss?  
Jamie Oliver says that, along with cutting white, unprocessed foods from his diet as well as eating more vegetables, he was able to drop the weight he wanted. He's also added seaweed into his diet. Want to know if this coastal plant is capable of providing you with similar results?
You may want to head to the nearest market stocked with seaweed now, since research from Newcastle University conducted last year suggested that the plant was capable of being a key ingredient to losing weight.How so? According to the research, there is a compound found in seaweed called alginate that is able to stop the body from absorbing fat.
  Though the researchers believe that the compound is capable of blocking the fat digesting enzyme, possibly ensuring that the body will absorb less fat and in turn keep people from becoming obese. It should not be used to look down upon fat and the importance of it for the body. "Fat plays an important role in metabolism; it's just the intake of excessive fat that is a health problem. This means that the potential for alginate to stop excess fat being absorbed by the body has its downsides, and the excess fat will have to come out in some capacity." Do you incorporate seaweed into your diet? Source: Telegraph

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS.
