Food Facts

• Oranges have white stuff on them after you peel them, but don’t pick it off. It’s called albedo and contains vitamin C, flavones and soluble fiber.

• Green tea is included in many weight-loss supplements, and for good reason. A study showed that overweight exercisers burned 7 percent more belly fat when they drank green tea instead of another beverage with the same calories.

• Caffeine in tea may increase stress and cortisol. Eight ounces of black tea has almost 50 milligrams per cup, green tea can have anywhere from 30 to 50 milligrams, and white tea has the least, with about 15 milligrams in eight ounces.

• Flaxseed oil is good for your skin. Subjects saw a 45 percent reduction in redness and irritation and smoother, softer skin thanks to flaxseed oil’s omega-3 content.

• Alpha lipoic acid is a power-packed antioxidant that bolsters the mitochondria, the energy-producing part of cells. The mitochondria are also where fat is burned, so ALA may be an effective fat burner as well as energizer.
