The Skinny on Brown Fat



Be surprised to know from a brief introduction that we have different facts in our bodies white take brown fat and the Brown is sometimes referred to as Beige or Brown adipose tissue but white fat is probably the factory to be familiar with white fat cells. Have have a single lipid droplet and the lodge fat droplets stores your energy around the body and as we know too much. White fat isn't a good thing. It forms from from taking an extra calories and it can lead to obesity. Higher Risk of heart disease and diabetes for example was Brown. Fat Differs to White Fast because his stores energy at a smaller space and the self contained many small lipid droplets. Not that of one large. It's also packed with Owen Rich. Might Conrad which it's how it gets. Its Brown color and Brown. adipose tissue can dissipate significant amount of chemical energy through uncoupled respiration and he he production and the heavens by a process called Thermo Genesis so Brown Fat Burns Energy and produces people predominantly have brown fat in areas including routing on neck's all codes kidneys and spinal cold and when activated by a cooler temperatures. Brown fat uses sugar and fat from the blood to generate heat in the body. So we know that one way to burn energy rather is free exercise obviously Brown adipose tissue also contributes to energy use. This why is quite fascinating. Because it's the type of fat that actually helps us burden more energy as it dispels energy as heat so it's able to potentially help us counterweight game. So how can we increase our levels of Brown fat. According to a twenty fourteen study conducted by the National Institutes of Health Research is which was then published in the journal Diabetes. I spending time in the cold may show Brown fat more active. And it can actually cause you to grow new brown fat cells. and this cold exposure activates the Brown adipose with host tissue Associated increased energy turnover and lower body. Fat Mass. There are also experiments conducted on mice. That showed that adding more brown factor to mice has been found to increase the rate. It was burnt energy reduced. The amounts of fats on their bodies and protect them from Diet induced. Obesity said it sounds pretty amazing. Leasing if you ask me. Further studies on mice and Brown adipose tissue also found that a protein called arison made help transform white fat to Brown and humans do producer sin and research uncovered the people who are sedentary produce. Follow letter this protein compared to those who exercise often so if people are doing intense aerobic interval training then they might have more chance to transforming their white fat to the more beneficial brown fat again. Another big arguments as to why are exercise. Size and health and fitness is so important further research obviously does need to be conducted into Brown. Fat and research is really still trying to understand it and understand the genes that control. How White Tim Brown fat develops in one study? Scientists engineered mice to be born with very little brown fat by limiting a protein called type one. ABM Receptor Sepah but when it comes to the cold the mice created brown fat from their white fat and this shows the power of recruitment office. That cold exposure can actually help us increase all brown fat fat levels but again this isn't as a house and start taking ice baths and turning down your thermostat. It needs a little more research to be done in Egypt. Consult your doctor as well. But but the core principles obviously we still are basic diet and exercise but also finally want to leave is on this note that there is a research going on into a fat grafting getting procedure to convert White Brown fat. So Columbia engineering team led by someone who is a professor biomedical engineering. They've developed a simple innovative method. That converts Brown outside the body. So this happens. Outside the body and they re-implant a hint to a patient and this fat grafting technique involves harvesting fats from under the skin. And then re transplanting it into the same patient wall reconstructive purposes and the report in which was published in scientific traffic reports said they successfully converted hot unharvested white fat to Brown fat in the lab which shows its potential use as therapy so be interesting to see the space I developed but again want done by balanced diet exercise adequate rest. We we've seen from this as well now. Exercise Not being trained allies can also help Lavar Brown fat level so again encourage you to get out and get your daily dose of exercise but
