Brown fat is really good for health, research
New York: Scientists at Rockefeller University Hospital in the United States say that brown fat is really good for human health. This is according to a study of more than 50,000 people.
According to the report, published online in the latest issue of the research journal Nature Medicine, brown fats have been shown to be beneficial in animals, but there is no clear research in humans.
This study was done keeping in view the same need which has definitely proved the benefits of brown fat for human beings.
It should be noted that brown fat is found in abundance in mammals as well as newborns who sleep long hours during the winter months. That is, they go into hibernation.
Unlike normal fats (white fats), brown fat cells have significantly higher levels of iron-rich mitochondria that generate heat using dietary energy, especially in cold weather. And thus cause the body to resist cooling.
Due to the large number of iron-rich mitochondria, this fat turns brown in color.
In 2009, scientists first discovered brown fat in adults, which is usually found around the neck and shoulders.
In this regard, research on rats has shown that brown fat not only improves metabolism but also helps in weight loss.
