Scientists Explain How Exercise Changes Metabolism
A recent study finds how exercise changes metabolism and helps make it more efficient. The researchers looked at how cells work during exercise and found that exercising converts the type of fat cells we have changing them from metabolically inactive ‘white fat’ to ‘brown fat’ that burns more calories.
Scientists believe that all superpowers of exercising deal with a hormone called irisin, which is produced during the exercise stress.
Li-Jun Yang, a professor of hematopathology in the University of Florida College of Medicine’s department of pathology and a study author, says: “We all know regular exercise is good for our health. But our work provides [additional] direct biological explanations or mechanisms why people who regularly exercise can maintain lean bodies and stronger bone structure.”
