Scientists have discovered how to burn fat without exercise. Low brown adipose tissue levels are the key to this discovery.
Brown adipose tissue, also known as brown fat, is a type of fat that is found in larger quantities in animals than humans.
It's function is to generate heat by burning calories and it does not seem to be involved in storing or releasing energy.
The discovery was made by Dr. Aaron Cypess from Joslin Diabetes Center and Harvard Medical School.
Brown fat is a type of fat that generates heat. It is found in babies, but as we get older, we have lower levels of brown fat.
Scientists have now discovered how to burn the brown fat without exercise by using an organic plant that activates the protein called BAT which is responsible for burning calories.
This discovery could lead to new treatments for obesity and diabetes.
