Drinking This 10 Weeks Reduce Body Fat
If you have concerns about being overweight, developing diabetes, or your heart disease risk, new research has identified a singular type of juice that could
Potentially lessen the chances of all three. What's extra fun is that if you happen to be a smoothie drinker or home gardener, it's very possible you've already heard
A study published last week in the European Journal of Nutrition was led by a food science and engineering research team from China's Nanjing University of Finance and Economics
And Nanjing Agricultural University. The scientists started by feeding a high-fat diet to mice. They administered broccoli microgreens juice for 10 weeks to the experimental group,
While administering a drug to the control group that was meant to function similarly to human medications used to treat type 2 diabetes. The expectation was that the control
Medication would increase insulin sensitivity, which in turn helps the body break down sugar and use it as fuel instead of storing it as fat or increasing blood sugar levels
Astoundingly, the mice that received the broccoli microgreens juice saw impressive results. Consuming the microgreen juice "significantly reduced white adipose tissue, or "white fat.
White fat is the worse of the two types of body fat as, in humans, it can build up mainly around the midsection and increase risk of heart disease, diabetes, even stroke, and more.
This could prove to be great insight when it comes to diabetes, but there was an implication even wider than that: the research team also reports that the mice's gut microbiota composition changed
Resulting in "an obvious anti-inflammatory" and anti-oxidative effect. For the liver, the broccoli microgreens juice "can enhance liver antioxidant capacity and reduce liver fat accumulation."
The study in its entirety is yet to be published, but here's how you might break down what its abstract explains: If a similar study were someday conducted on humans to find that the effect
Of the broccoli microgreens juice were similar—that is, if it helped to reduce fat accumulation in people, too—then it might suggest
That broccoli microgreens juice could potentially combat obesity levels that put individuals at risk for diabetes, and those with other risk factors related to obesity.
