Coffee is increasingly called a healthy drink, emphasizing that its beneficial properties outweigh the possible harm. Another plus was found by researchers from the University of Nottingham, who claim that drinking coffee can contribute to weight loss.
It is known that in our body there is white fat and brown fat . The accumulation of white fat provokes obesity, and a sufficient amount of brown fat – the release of energy to burn calories.
British researchers conducted a series of laboratory studies in which they showed that caffeine can stimulate the storage of brown fat. They were able to pick up the very dose that provided this effect.
In an experiment involving 9 volunteers who drank a cup of coffee, the authors observed an increase in the activity of brown fat in the neck area – this indicated that the calorie burning process really started.
