According to a Study, Coffee Can Help You Burn More Calories.

Drinking a cup of coffee may help you burn more calories, according to researchers at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom.


Coffee can activate the body's 'brown fat,' which burns calories to generate body heat, according to the study, which was published in the journal Scientific Reports.


There are two types of fat cells, according to the researchers: brown cells, which produce body heat, and white cells, which store fat. Researchers have discovered that coffee can promote brown fat, which encourages the body to burn more calories, despite the fact that the research is still in its early stages and a small-scale trial.


Professor Michael Symonds, from the University of Nottingham's School of Medicine, who co-directed the study, remarked in an article on the Nottingham University website:


"Brown fat differs from other types of fat in your body in that it produces heat by burning sugar and fat, which it does in response to cold. Increased movement improves blood sugar control and blood cholesterol levels, and the additional calories burned aid weight loss."
