Brown Adipose Tissue

Considered a ‘healthy’ fat in the body, it is a very metabolically active and highly thermogenic tissue. Though it is found in significant quantities in infants, adults tend to have very small deposits. It is thought that stimulating brown fat growth in adults could help fight weight gain. The more brown fat you have, the less likely you are to develop metabolic dysfunction.
