Drinking coffee could help you lose weight

The findings aside, dietitian Susie Burrell tells 10 daily that the health benefits related to drinking coffee aren't anything new. How is this possible?

The team started with a series of stem cell studies to see if caffeine would stimulate brown fat.

Researchers at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom published a study hinting at the possibility that coffee may stimulate brown fat activity.

The study was published in the Scientific Reports journal.

Researchers conducted in vivo and in vitro experiments to understand what role caffeine plays in the energy production process.

But Zarabi said dieters shouldn't view coffee as any magic potion for weight loss. Caffeine may reduce feelings of hunger and your desire to eat a brief time. "And many drink coffee "light and sweet", which defeats the whole objective of burning energy, because you're taking it all back in with the condiments".

Brown adipose tissue (BAT), also known as brown fat, is one of two types of fat found in humans and other mammals. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness.BMI can be used to screen weight categories that may lead to health problems, but it is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual.

Can coffee affect the body's fat stores and help boost metabolism? "Brown fat works differently from other body fats and produces heat by burning sugar and fats, often in response to cold", says Professor Michael Symonds, who led the study. They declare this paper is among the first to show that doing so can have a direct impact on brown fat functions. "Exercise stimulates brown fat, good sleep stimulates brown fat, and now we know caffeine or coffee can do the same", Dr. Agus said.

"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", he said in a university news release.

"The results were positive and we now need to ascertain that caffeine as one of the ingredients in the coffee is acting as the stimulus or if there's another component helping with the activation of brown fat", said Prof. After finding the right dose, they then moved on humans to see if results were similar. Here, the scientists used thermal imaging to watch the patient's brown fat reserves as they emitted heat. More research is needed to determine what in coffee is exactly the cause behind its fat burning properties. This breakthrough discovery can help in tackling obesity crisis and may even be helpful for diabetics, University of Nottingham professor said.
