Researchers have found a direct connection between flavan 3-ols consumption and fat browning by activation in the sympathetic nervous system. The findings could help in the development of new treatments for obesity-related disorders.
A study of Scandinavian Winter swimmers reveals alternating between cold water swimming and hot sauna sessions may affect the way in which brown adipose fat burns energy and produces heat.
Beta2-adrenergic receptors in brown fat cells are responsible for stimulating thermogenesis.
A new study reports brown fat interacts with secretin, a gut hormone, to signal the feeling of fullness to the brain while eating.
