We think we know everything there is to know about them. After all, faithful paparazzi haunt them down just so we can get a picture or a glimpse of their lives. However,repparttar “money shot” doesn’t tell us everything. Especially how they stay in shape, maintain their youthfulness, and flawless skin.

We have seen Angela Basset evolve from a muscle built Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got to Do With It” to a lean and fit beauty right before our eyes.

So, what is their secret? The secret is your natural fat burner. Your body has a natural fat burner called your liver.
