Obesity is certainly among the top health concerns, along with diabetes, but as per a new study brown fat can protect your body from obesity and diabetes naturally. The new research study claims that it focuses specifically on brown fat that is present in small quantities in adults. The research report claims that brown fat is mostly present in newborn babies as they are more prone to heat loss and since they are unable to shiver and brown fat helps them to stay warm. However, as we grow the body requires less amount of brown fat and therefore it is replaced by white fat which can lead to many more health concerns.
This small study involved 12 men who were exposed to cold for five to eight hours as researchers wanted to see their reactions. The researchers confirmed that only those men that had more brown fat were able to withstand cold for long hours. This also proves that brown fat can help patients in reducing their Type 2 diabetes and obesity issues. The study still has many different phases that will be covered in the next few years, but it certainly paves the way that brown fat can help in reducing health risks caused due to obesity and diabetes.
