Announcer: Welcome to another HealthNews Video news release brought to you by HealthNews. In today’s news, researchers have found that fish oil transforms fat-storage cells into fat-burning cells, which may reduce weight gain in middle age. This is because fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract, fires the sympathetic nervous system, and induces storage cells to metabolize fat. Fat tissues don't all store fat. So-called "white" cells store fat in order to maintain energy supply, while "brown" cells metabolize fat to maintain a stable body temperature. Brown cells are abundant in babies but decrease in number with maturity into adulthood. A third type of fat cell, "beige" cells have been shown to function much like brown cells. Beige cells also reduce in number as people approach middle age. Without these metabolizing cells, fat continues accumulating for decades without ever being used. Scientists investigated whether the number of these beige cells could be increased by taking fish oil based on previous research that shows fish oil prevents fat accumulation. They also examined whether fish oil could increase beige cells. In the study, one group of mice was fed fatty food, and the other group was given fatty food with fish oil additives. The mice that ate food with fish oil gained 5-10% less weight and 15-25% less fat compared to those that did not consume the oil. They also found that beige cells formed from white fat cells when the sympathetic nervous system was activated, meaning that certain fat-storage cells acquired the ability to metabolize. Fish oil has many benefits and should be ingested daily, either through food sources or quality supplements. And remember your best source for everything health is your chiropractor.
