Clothing to Help You Freeze Off the Fat. www.dailyrxnews.com
Wearing warm clothing could help with sweating off the pounds, but what about freezing them off instead?
According to inventor Adam Paulin, his device, the Thin Ice Weight Loss Vest, could help its wearers burn off fat by cooling parts of the body in order to increase the metabolism of brown fat cells.
Brown fat burns calories to maintain the body's temperature, particularly in colder environments, such as a winter's day or during a cold shower. The more commonly known white fat, however, stores calories and fat. Brown fat was known to be found only in babies and kids until 2009 when it was discovered in adult humans in three different studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM). Those with healthy weight and women in general carry more of the fat, which is located around the neck in adults, according to researchers.
