Seaweed may help lose weight: Study
Zee Media Bureau
Melbourne: A new study suggests that seaweed fibre may help in slimming in future, thereby preventing the body from absorbing extra fat.
Researchers at University of Newcastle's Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences conducted tests on fat-busting seaweed called alginate, which is majorly found in the sea kelp.
The findings of the test suggest that alginate can suppress the digestion of fat in the gut.
The researchers found that alginates containing more of a sugar molecule called guluronate were best at blocking fat digestion.
Seaweeds are the best source of minerals. Not just this, it has high iodine, calcium, magnesium, iron value.
The research has been published in the journal Food Chemistry.
