Brown fat

(Sandra Watson) #1

I have heard this mentioned a lot lately but not had the time to fully explore. This article was in my inbox this am so I am throwing it out here (sorry did not know where to post it here). Has anyone done research on specifically brown fat? I have a cryogenictherapy chamber that opened next to me and I was curious to try as I have heard that can be beneficial.

Gabor @erdoke is a big fan of cold thermogenesis.

I understand it’s a hormetic stressor. One of the benefits is increasing the production of brown adipose tissue.

Taking cold showers every day also increases brown fat, they say…
