New Protein Could Help Burn Fat Faster
( CNN) Research has shown that the fatter your body becomes, the harder it becomes to burn that excess fat.
Vital Signs is a monthly program bringing spectators health narratives from around the world.
As people feed more fat than they burn, the body stores this excess in various parts of the body and as this storage increases, metabolism changes.
However, all is not lost: a recent analyseby researchers at the University of Cambridge identified one of the proteins underlying this blockage of fat burn. “[ This protein] is part of the system in place to help the body store more energy, ” says Antonio Vidal-Puig, Professor in Molecular Nutrition and Metabolism, who worked on such studies.
