This cocktail will slim you down after all of your Christmas feasting, thanks to nobiletin, a flavonoid found in tangerines. In one study, researchers put two groups of mice on a high-fat diet designed to induce obesity, but one group was also given nobiletin. The result: Mice in the nobiletin group seemed immune to the effects of the high-fat diet—their weight remained healthy and they didn’t develop arterial plaque buildup. Researchers say nobiletin activates fat-burning genes while inhibiting fat-manufacturing genes. Bonus: Rosemary boosts alertness!
