Brown fat is often referred to as good fat in the body. It turns nutrients into energy by activating uncoupling protein 1. Unlike, white or yellow fat, brown fat isn’t a result of excess calories. The School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham studied the link between coffee consumption and uncoupling protein 1 activation. They found that drinking 1 cup of coffee a day helped stimulate brown fat regions and aid in metabolic function. This research shows promise in helping with the obesity crisis in America. Now, remember, before you go to crazy with the coffee—drinking it in high amounts can cause serious health problems.
