10 Nutrients That Shrink Your Belly

Fucoxanthin is a carotenoid found in brown seaweed.

Research on this compound suggests it may be a powerful fat fighter. In animal studies, overweight and obese mice were found to lose 5 to 10 percent of their entire body weight when consuming fucoxanthin. Although research is still unclear as to exactly how fucoxanthin promotes weight loss, it may be due to its ability to target a specific protein that increases the rate at which abdominal fat is burned.

Edible brown seaweed is available in Japanese specialty stores and health food stores under the names wakame and hijiki.
