Brown fat

Brown fat (please, brown), beige fat, white fat. It's like it's starting to sound jazz.
Many of us would rather listen to a hit of gennl & # 8221 an apple a day keep the fat away & # 8221 or maybe some hard rock music & # 8221 eat what you want 5 days and fast 2 and you will lose weight & # 8221.
But when it comes to the chemistry in our body, things are so complicated that it doesn't even compare to a symphony.

I smile crookedly when I read: & # 8221 fattening is due to a fundamental energy imbalance, when the energy provided by food exceeds the energy spent on physical movement and metabolic processes & # 8221.
A therapy to reduce body weight should of course involve less food and more exercise. But this is far from enough. Anyone who has been on a diet knows this all too well.
Human beings have developed incredibly complex biological mechanisms to procure energy and make reserves. Apart from this, some of the & # 8221 wheels & # 8221 of this mechanism may work in vain due to changes in the environment, or due to age, excess sugar and starch in the diet or I don't know what else.

For years, researchers have been studying brown fat, a type of heat-generating fat that burns energy instead of storing it (as white fat does).
Babies have it to keep them warm. Which explains why some babies survived after sitting outside in the cold for hours.
Initially, researchers thought that adults no longer had this brown fat. But, surprisingly, not only do they still have some of it, but it even plays an important role in heat production and energy metabolism.
Another surprise, brown fat offers a natural defense against obesity: people with a higher amount of brown fat have a lower body weight.

A strict calorie-restricted diet does more harm than good.
For normal weight people, brown fat consumes energy while white fat tends to store it. But in the case of those on a diet with severe caloric restrictions, brown fat becomes largely inactive, which means that both types of fat become energy storage organs. It becomes extremely difficult to lose weight.
It's like driving a car and in vain you press the accelerator because an invisible foot applied the brake.
The phenomenon is well known, but researchers at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research in Sydney and the University of NSW have also found the scientific explanation. They used mice in their experiment but the mechanism is probably the same in humans.
They showed that a neuro-transmitter, neuro-peptide Y (NPY), known to stimulate appetite, also plays a major role in controlling whether the body burns or stores energy.
& # 8220A high level of NPY signals to the body that it is in a situation of & # 8216f hunger & # 8217 and that it must try to recover and conserve as much energy as possible. As a result, the body reduces processes that are not absolutely essential for survival. & # 8221
As a result, brown fat, one of the primary tissues in which the body generates heat and therefore uses energy, is deactivated.

A lot of hormones are involved in human metabolism and I don't know how many other chemicals.
Not to mention the genome and the mechanisms of activation / deactivation of genes.
But when you struggle with stubborn fat, you cling to the last straw.
Studies are now being done to see how brown fat can be increased and activated.

A year ago, researchers at Harvard University made an important discovery in mice, a finding later confirmed in humans. It seems that exercise brings other benefits besides burning calories. Namely, it produces a hormone called irisin. Irisin is an ecological travel through our body. Increases the best brown cells and decreases the white & # 8221 polluting & # 8221 cells.
Irisin is not the only & # 8221 byproduct & # 8221 of exercise, it also results in hundreds of proteins with an important role in our health.

Another candidate for increasing the amount of brown fat in the body is ursolic acid, which is found in apples (especially in the skin), plums, some Mediterranean herbs and from us such as basil, lavender, oregano, thyme and some fruits. forest such as currants.
Obviously, the media immediately hit on this news and launched a new hit & # 8221Eat apples & # 8221 but things are not easy at all. The research is confirmed only in studies on mice so far.
But, well, an apple a day is one of the best ideas for your health anyway.

Other researchers have discovered a protein that activates brown fat but how the discovery can be applied in practice is not so clear.

Until smarter methods are identified to increase the amount of brown fat in the body. the only advice I can apply and give:
- do not follow sluggish diets, which drastically restrict calories. But he didn't eat unknowingly either.
- what you eat and when you eat is very important. Don't eat too much in the evening. Eat as varied as possible, as many vegetables, fruits and legumes as well as quality meat, eggs, dairy and cheese. Includes & # 8221 good fats & # 8221, such as olive oil, sunflower and rapeseed. Make sure fish, vegetable oils, nuts, hazelnuts and almonds are part of your weekly menu.
- a salad a day and a few fruits, including apples and plums, may not increase the amount of brown fat in your body, but they will keep the doctor away from you.
- make movement a lifestyle. Even if you do not see the results immediately, in the long run, your health and figure will improve.

So, no matter what hit is fashionable, put your sneakers on and get moving.!
