Fish Oil And Beige Cells Can Help You To Slim Down



Recently I started eating fish oil substitutes for general health. I am also a great fan of walking. But after this fish oil supplementation, I could see I was getting slim faster. And people even congratulated for my weight loss. I did not understand the reason nor did I ever think about fish oil.

But now a research study throws light upon this fact and gives an interesting twist to weight loss. It also talks about some new found beige cells in the body. Interested? Then join me as I traverse through this blog post.

Fish oil and Beige cells

Scientists have discovered that fish oil turns fat storage cells into fat-burning cells. Awesome is it not?

The researchers say that fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, boost the sympathetic nervous system and induces fat storage cells to utilize fat.

There are three types of cells in the body related to storage and metabolization of fats. 

The white cells, brown cells, and the newly found beige cells. The white cells store fat, but the brown and beige cells burn the fat.


These cells reduce in number as a person reaches the middle years of life.

The scientists wanted to find whether fish oil could increase the number of beige cells thereby helping in weight loss.

The experimentation started, one group of mice was fed fatty food and the other group was fed fatty food along with fish oil additives. The results were stunning.

The group which had the fish oil supplementation gained 5-10% less weight and 15-25% less fat compared to the other group.

The scientists found that beige cells formed from white cells when the sympathetic nervous system was activated.

Conclusion

To live a long and healthy life include lots of fish in your diet.

Take care
