Red Wine Fat burner

Red Wine, Hidden Fat burner?

Physical Fitness and exercise aren’t the only contributing factors to weight loss. At the Women Only Fitness Bootcamp, We understand that food and nutrition is just as important, if not more so, than being physically active in the road to burn fat. The trick is to spice things up and not have the same old thing. Who would have thought that a glass of cabernet sauvignon could be a fat burner?

Women can raise a glass and not feel like they may have cheated or strayed away from their diets. Researchers wanted to understand what was going on inside the grapes and how it effected the body after discovering the weight loss benefits from a glass of wine.

After researchers spent 10 weeks feeding mice a high-fat diet, They gave half of them a general blend of “mouse chow” and the other half were given extracts from red wine Pinot noir grapes. The mice with a bit of a buzz not only had less liver fat, but they also had lower blood sugar. It turns out ellargic acids inside a vineyard’s grapes have the power to slow the development of new fat cells as well as delay the growth of current ones.

“The high-fat-fed mice developed fatty liver and diabetic symptoms — the same metabolic consequences we see in many overweight, sedentary people,” said the study’s co-author Neil Shay, a scientist at the college’s agriculture research lab, in a press release. “If we could develop a dietary strategy for reducing the harmful accumulation of fat in the liver using common foods like grapes, that would be good news.”

The red wine’s fat burner benefits confirmed by the study gives peace of mind for those evening dinners with a nice glass on the side. You could achieve the same benefits by downing a handful of grapes but that isn’t anywhere near as relaxing.
