Go Blue for Weight Loss
Looking to shed pounds? It's time to go blue. Not only do they taste great, but blue berries also are packed with healthy benefits. Here four ways these tangy natural treats can help boost your weight loss efforts.
- Blue berries deliver on nutrients without packing on calories: They're rich in a slew of nutrients including vitamins C and E, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, folate, iron, magnesium, manganese and antioxidants. Yet, they're low in calories and free of fat, cholesterol or sodium.
- Blue berries pack fat-burning catechins: They're loaded with catechins, natural antioxidants that stimulate fat-burning genes in abdominal fat cells. In a recent study, Tufts University researchers found that catechins can increase the rate of abdominal fat loss by some77 percent and double your total weight loss.
- Blue berries aid in digestion: They're packed withinsoluble fiber, which helps to speed up the digestive process, quickly eliminating waste from the body.
- Blue berries trigger dopamine production: Dopamine is a natural "feel-good" neurotransmitter that can boost your mood and motivate you to maintain an active lifestyle. And, it's a natural appetite suppressant.
More blue berry benefits include anti-aging free radicals; disease-preventing proanthycyanidins and phytonutrients; and salicylic acid, a natural version of aspirin that helps to thin the blood and reduce pain.
