Shivering 'as Good As Exercise' For Producing Brown Fat

Explaining the hormones' activity, Dr. Lee says: "These hormones fired up the energy-burning rate of human white fat cells in the laboratory, and resource the treated fat cells began to emit heat - a hallmark of brown fat function." Exercises mimics shivering The investigators point out that a research team from Harvard University first discovered irisin in 2012, identifying it as a muscle hormone that was triggered by exercise that turned white fat into brown fat. But the researchers of this most recent study note that exercise produces heat in itself. Therefore, they questioned why exercising muscle would prompt a mechanism bodybuilding that produces more heat. In order to find out, the same volunteers carried out exercise tests. The process in which muscles release irisin during exercise was compared with the process in which they release the hormone through shivering. <br>Full story:
