INCREASE YOUR FAT BURN BY DRINKING WINE
As if you needed an excuse to reach for a post-work pinot noir. Researchers at Oregon State University have found that consuming dark grapes in any form can boost you body’s fat-burning ability.
Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound found in the fruit, appears to slow the growth of fat cells and increase the rate at which your liver burns fat.
If you’re teetotal, these food-based alternatives should do the trick:
These have more ellagic acid than any other nut. You’ll get the same benefits from the nuts or oil.
Whether it’s fresh or frozen, these berries win with the highest tested ellagic acid content of any food.
The seed-heavy fruit contains ellagitannins, which your body then converts to the fat-torching acid.
