(NaturalNews) You may have never heard of the term "brown fat" before, but new research has been published which says brown fat is a good thing, and you should sleep in a "cooler" room regularly, so crank up the A/C, because a slightly higher power bill might be worth it to your health. By giving your metabolism a boost, you gain metabolic advantages, according to the new study, which tested five men for four months in climate-controlled rooms with "adjusted" temperatures. Researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) found that subjects sleeping in rooms at a temperature of about 66F had more brown fat, as opposed to white fat, in their bodies, which is key to metabolic improvements.

The term "brown fat" refers to adipose tissue which is active fat, unlike its counterpart white fat, which is more of a storage fat. The brown fat is the fat that burns calories so your body can maintain its core temperature, to protect all your vital organs. According to the National Institutes of Health, brown fat is more prevalent in babies because babies need it to stay warm. Adults, take note here, because we still retain some!

Metabolic changes that lower risk for diabetes found in "brown fats"

Researchers noted that, after four weeks of sleeping at 81F, the metabolic enhancements come undone, as the men who volunteered to take part in the study had less brown fat than after their very first scan. Having more brown fat also means more effective disposal of glucose. This is good news. Even workplace environments kept "cooler" are sufficient to expand brown adipose tissue mass and activity for extended periods of time. People who work 40 to 50 hours a week in such environments are a good example of this.

The study was published just last month in the journal Diabetes. The tests were run on five healthy and lean men. All men performed normal activities during their days at the Clinical Research Center at NIH. The test started off with a first month of sleeping in 75F, then it went to 66F for the second month, then back to 75F for the third month, and the fourth wonderful month was spent sleeping at 81F. During the month of 66F, the team of researchers noted double the volume of brown fat, not to mention that each man's insulin sensitivity had improved.

Overweight and insulin-resistant humans to be tested next

According to lead author Francesco Celi, who is a staff clinician from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, people who are overweight or insulin-resistant may benefit from this procedure. This could be huge. A press release by Virginia Commonwealth University stated, "In previous work, the team analyzed the effects of acute cold exposure and identified crosstalk between skeletal muscle and brown fat tissue that is mediated by an exercise-induced hormone. This metabolic signaling may help the body more efficiently maintain its core temperature."

The body is a very efficient machine, given the right "input." So what input shall you give yours for maximum efficiency and metabolism? Will you eat healthy fats like organic avocados and organic coconut oil, or will you consume partially hydrogenated oils and animal fat? Will you pay closer attention to research that reveals ways to streamline your health and immunity, or will you watch TV and be brainwashed by lies? Investigate your own health with real research and find out how you might protect your body from corporate toxic foods and medicines, and how natural and holistic approaches to monitoring your insulin resistance and metabolism may be the key. Over time, turn everything you eat, drink and put on your skin into something that your body WANTS, and that's organic!
