Researchers from Cornell University have discovered that inducing the production of beige fat can help reverse a slowing metabolism, potentially preventing metabolism disorders and age-related weight gain. Unlike white fat, which stores energy, beige fat is a type of fat that helps to burn calories. The study identified that mice with increased beige fat had a higher metabolic rate, meaning that they burned more calories than those without it. The research could lead to novel approaches for tackling obesity and metabolic issues.
