Losing body fat is a very difficult task. Fat cells bind to alpha-2 receptors, causing large amounts of fat to accumulate. This fat is very difficult to lose compared to other fats. People adopt various methods to reduce this fat. Which includes healthy diet, vigorous exercise, good lifestyle etc. However, many people do not lose body, stomach and chest fat even after so much effort.
A recent study has shown that there is a fruit that reduces body fat by eating it. And the best part is, you don’t even need to go to the gym. Even walking for half an hour 5 days a week can help a lot. This method is very beneficial for those who have excess body fat. If you are also one of those people who want to lose body fat, then read the report till the end.
What does the study say?
This research on reducing body fat was done by scientists at the University of Chichester. The study included women who could walk briskly for 30 minutes daily. In the study, scientists administered 600 mg of New Zealand blackcurrant extract (CurraNZ) to women for 7 days. New Zealand was the reason blackcurrant extract was given, it is considered a superfood. It contains high levels of anthocyanins. Anthocyanins are a subclass of polyphenols that give fruits and vegetables their color.
Scientists have found that this supplement helps burn 25 percent of fat. 66 percent of the women who had good results were burned. Those with more arm fat fared better than those with more leg fat.
Researchers believe that these adipocytes are caused by fat cells, which facilitate the burning of leg fat. The study also found that, after the same workout, the rate of fat burning was more than double in women compared to men.
What is black current?
The word ‘currant’ is associated with the Amalaki family. Blackcurrant is made from dried and seedless black grapes, called Black Corinth and Carina. Currants are dried for 3 weeks. Due to their small size, they taste sweet and salty. Raisins, sultanas and black currants have almost the same nutritional value, only the color is different. Black currant boosts immunity, maintains skin and eye health.
No need to go to the gym
Mark Williams, professor of exercise physiology at the University of Chichester, said: “We can seriously consider whether blackcurrant, when used in conjunction with exercise and a restricted diet, could be a very good supplement for weight management.” Research results show that black currant is very beneficial for people who are overweight, especially in the lower body. You don’t even need to go to the gym every day for this. Just 30 minutes of walking is beneficial. And if walking isn’t available, doing housework or gardening can also be beneficial.
