Fucoxanthin on weight loss effect

The human body has two types of fat cells, "white fat cells" and "brown fat cells."

White fat cells are present throughout the body, especially in the lower abdomen, buttocks, thighs, back, and in the body, such as around the internal organs. What we usually call "body fat" is this white fat cell.

Because white fat cells are everywhere, it has the function of accumulating excess energy into the body in the form of neutral fat in the body. On the other hand, brown fat cells, in the neck, underarms, around the position of the scapula, such as the kidneys, to maintain the body's temperature to change the body's heat.

In addition, when there is excess nutrients in the body, obesity can be effectively prevented by releasing nutrients of excess calories. UCP1 (uncoupling protein) acts to convert the energy of nutrients into heat. UCP1 is expressed as "body fat" in "white fat" cells and has been shown to be effective in burning fat and reducing body weight and body fat.(The study suggests that the mechanism of fucoxanthin weight loss is: fucoxanthin can eliminate fat accumulation in two ways: fucoxanthin activates the protein called UCP1, which promotes fat breakdown; It can stimulate the liver to produce DHA that lowers cholesterol levels.)
