Brown Fat Weight Loss

Recent studies have shown that we humans have two types of fat deposits. Brown fat, and white fat. The big difference is that the brown fat burns more calories than white fat.

Babies when they are first born have typically the most brown fat, because the baby’s body needs to produce an enormous amount of heat when exiting the womb into a new environment as a survival mechanism.

Scientist and researchers are working hard at finding solutions to activate the brown fat that each and everyone of us have. Imagine the day when we can take a supplement to activate the brown fats for a few hours and allow it to slowly burn off the normal fat deposits.

Overweight individuals have new hope in the foreseeable future of science and weight loss.
