Drinking coffee could help you lose weight

According to a recent study your morning coffee may be more useful than you think.

The recent discovery that drinking up to 25 cups of coffee a day will not strengthen your arteries, but will be safe for heart health didn’t make you jump for joy, then after reading this article you will jump everywhere. According to a new study, by drinking a cup of coffee you can actually get more value than just getting involved in the day and reliving the morning, a cup of coffee can also help you lose weight.

The research of the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham has shown that this occurs by stimulating brown adipose tissue, also known as “brown fat” in your body, which burns calories to generate body heat.

Professor Michael Symonds,who co-directed the research said:"Brown fat works in a different way to other fat in your body and produces heat by burning sugar and fat, often in response to cold."

They found that immediately after drinking coffee, brown fat became more active and hotter, which indicates that it began to work and burned calories. Now the team will conduct further coffee studies to find out exactly which ingredient activates fat, although they believe that all this can be associated with caffeine.

Supposed to it was this was the first research to show how coffee has an impact on brown fat in humans and according to Professor Simonds, will have big consequences for society.

He added: "The potential implications of our results are pretty big, as obesity is a major health concern for society and we also have a growing diabetes epidemic and brown fat could potentially be part of the solution in tackling them."

Researchers, writing in the journal Scientific Reports, first used stem cells to see if caffeine would stimulate brown fat. They then moved on to humans, using a thermal imaging technique to trace the body's brown fat reserves as they emitted heat.
