5 ways to get more fat-burning brown fat
We all know that losing weight is really hard, and keeping it off can be even more challenging. In this post, I will tell you 5 ways you can get more fat-burning brown fat. The more brown fat you have, the more fat and calories your body will burn even at rest. If you don’t want to miss out on that, continue reading this post.
Introduction – what is brown fat
Brown fat is different than normal white fat. It is a fat that latterly burns other fat for fuel. It acts like the body’s thermostat to keep us warm. When it keeps us warm, it burns a lot of calories and fat. That makes it an exciting option to burn calories and support weight loss. Simply put, you want as much of this brown fat as possible.
If you want to know more about what brown fat is, go to this post, where we talk about this in detail.
Recent studies have shown that you can make brown fat out of regular white fat. In this post, we will give you five5 great ways you can increase the amount of fat-burning fat you have.
Exposing yourself to cold
One study looked at 12 men with lower than average brown fat levels. They sat in a room at 17 degrees C for two hours every day for 6 weeks in the study. At the start of the study, they burnt on average an extra 108 more calories when sitting in this slightly cold room. However, in the end, they were burning 289 calories extra. That is a huge difference!
It’s clear from this that even though you don’t initially have a lot of brown fat, your body quickly adjusts and creates more brown fat to keep you warm.
They got more brown fat because their sympathetic nervous system triggered an adrenaline response. That activated and acquired more brown fat.
Other cold treatments such as cold showers and baths, as well as the Prime Science Fat Freezing Vest, also increase your levels of brown fat.
Several studies: It is essential to know that curcumin is the active ingredient in the turmeric that creates this impact.
Regular turmeric as a spice is likely insufficient to reach the targeted effect of migrating white fat to brown fat. That is because turmeric generally only includes less than 5% curcumin. That would mean you need to eat a lot of turmeric.
You should aim to get 50mg/kg body weight of curcumin to reach the targeted migration. That has shown to be efficient in a mice study.
Going into deep ketosis can significantly impact how effective or powerful your brown fat is. Deep ketosis has the potential of increasing the power of your brown fat 4 times.
Studies have shown that when you are in ketosis, you increase the size of the mitochondria within the brown fat. The mitochondria are responsible for how the brown fat burns energy and keeps us warm.
It would be best if you reached a ketone level of 3.5 to 4 mmol/L for the best effect. You will need a ketone meter to know your value to really know your ketone levels.
High-intensity interval training
Irisin is a very important hormone in the body. High-intensity interval training a few times every week positively impacts your irisin levels. Irisin doesn’t turn white fat into brown fat. However, it helps give white fat properties similar to brown fat.
Irisin gives the white fat the ability to start generating heat. The white fat doesn’t change in structure, but by generating heat, it is very similar to brown fat.
A 24 hour fast 2 to 4 times every week has shown to be really powerful in immune reactions. These immune reactions cause you to have more brown fat.
A study has shown that a 24 hour fast creates vascular growth factors. That means you are growing new blood vessels. These blood vessels grow into the regular white fat turning it into brown fat.
Interestingly you don’t need to be in a calorie deficit over time for this to happen. It is required to be a 24 hour fast even though you might be compensating by eating more other days.
The 5 ways to increase fat-burning brown fat
So there you have it. 5 ways for you to increase your fat-burning brown fat.
- Cold exposure through cold rooms, cold showers, and baths, as well as the Prime Science Fat Burner Vest.
- Eating turmeric/curcumin
- Going deep into ketosis
- High-intensity interval training
- Fasting for 24 hours
To lose weight and fat most people do hours of exercise and stick to strict diets. Prime Science has created a Fat Burner Vest and Fat Freezing Belt that burns a lot of calories and freezes away fat without moving or exercising. This makes you lose weight and fat to achieve the body you always wanted while getting hours back and enjoying the food you love.
