According to scientists, when we work out the body releases a hormone that not only helps burn body fat but prevents it from forming.

Little exercise is enough - No excuse sticks anymore
We already know that facing the gym regularly, combined with dietary re-education, helps you lose your stomach.
The news is that the benefits of physical activity echo even in the future by preventing fat accumulation.
The good news comes from a study from the University of Florida Health (United States).
Scientists have observed that by engaging in an exercise routine, the body releases the irisin hormone.
This hormone guarantees a preventive effect of fat tissue formation by reducing the number of mature fat cells between 20% and 60%.
When released, irisine increases gene activity and an essential protein for turning white fat into brown fat.
Brown fat is called the "good fat".
It is metabolically active.
Your job is to take blood sugar to maintain our internal temperature.
Scientists have found that irisine also accelerates energy use by these cells, indicating a crucial role in weight loss.
To reach these conclusions, fat cells were collected from 28 volunteers.
By exposing the samples to irisine, there was a nearly five-fold increase in cells that contain the fat-burning protein UCP1.
As our body produces irisine in small quantities, any opportunity to increase its presence and performance is welcome.
For this, the path is that of the gym.
The study was published in the scientific journal American Journal of Physiology - Endocrinology and Metabolism.
