How To Get Rid Of Stubborn Belly Fat Naturally With Chlorophyll

Stubborn belly fat. It's a nusiance and it isn't pretty.

Chlorophyll equals flat belly. How can that be? Isn't chlorophyll the stuff that makes leaves and grass green?!

Yes! And according to the dietary experts, chlorophyll acts like a mild laxative and encourages the liver into becoming a better fat-burning machine. The green pigment is also full of magnesium which helps to balance blood sugar and melt away stubborn belly fat. Chlorophyll is also high in vitamin and mineral content.

Ann Louise Gittleman, PhD, and an award-winning author of 30 books, tells First for Women magazine that, "the best absorbed form (of chlorophyll) is a liquid extract mixed with water." She suggests a twice daily drink of 1 tsp. of chlorophyll in 8 oz. of water.

Dr. Gittleman likes Sunny Green Liquid Chlorophyll ($13, 16 oz., at health-food stores).

Just one key note to consider: If stools become too loose, reduce dose to 1/2 tsp. of cholorophyll in 8 oz., twice daily.

Did you know that a glass of wheat grass juice has lots of chlorophyll in it? From what we learned, it is nearly 70% chlorophyll. If you examine chlorophyll's basic chemical compound, it matches the human hemoglobin almost perfectly. This in turn, gives the body excellent healing and nutritional value.

And lettuce (and other raw leafy green vegetables) is also another great source of chlorophyll for more natural ways of burning stubborn belly fat.

Before adding a liquid chlorophyll to your diet, please check with your doctor, especially if your are pregnant or have diabetes.
