Dr Oz: Seaweed Pills
In this segment, Dr Oz brought up Stacey, an audience member, who stated that she had been to the ocean once. Dr Oz told Stacey (and the audience) that seaweed was an item that had been consumed a lot in different parts of the world, however, brown seaweed was has potent powers to burn belly fat—but only if you eat it. To get the full advantages of brown seaweed, Dr Oz suggested taking 500 mg per day. Brown seaweed also contained ingredients to help lessen liver fat. (A bonus!)
Dr Oz: Brown Seaweed Pills
To demonstrate this idea, Dr Oz performed an experiment. He had 2 hanging circles labeled “belly fat.” Dr Oz lit the first circle and it burned slowly. He added seaweed to the second circle and lit that. It burned quickly. This showed that while you will lose weight without seaweed, adding seaweed will help you burn the fat much quicker. Stacey stated that she had kids that didn’t like to eat what she did while on a diet. (What? You mean kids don’t like card board pasta and carrot sticks? Go figure!) Dr Oz informed Stacey that dark licorice with brown seaweed could accelerate the fat burning benefits. Take 2 mgs of a black licorice supplement in combination with the seaweed supplement in order to burn fat much faster. Black licorice also improved your blood glucose levels by 9%. Caveat: Do not eat if you have high blood pressure.
Other benefits of brown seaweed include support of the circulatory system, maintaining normal cholesterol levels, support cell regeneration, help in maintaining immune health system. Seaweed pills are also considered a good source of Vitamin A, C, E, K, riboflavin, folate, calcium and iron. One downfall; these pills are high in sodium.
