Scientists have found a way to lose weight without dieting
MOSCOW, 6 Jan — RIA Novosti. The staff of the medical Department of the University of Texas at Galveston have developed a drug that accelerates the process of weight loss without changing diet. The study is published in the portal ScienceDirect.
The accumulation of fat deposits in the body starts the process of sverkhekspressiya protein NNMT, which slows down the metabolism. Innovative product allows you to block this protein, thereby significantly accelerating the process of metabolism. Thus the development allows scientists to lose weight, not limiting themselves to the consumption of food.
Researchers have tested the drug on laboratory mice, which previously were put on a diet with a high content of fat. Scored a lot of rodents were divided into several groups, which began to give a medication or a placebo. As a result, after 10 days in mice receiving the drug, the weight decreased by 7%, and the weight of white fat and size of fat cells decreased by 30%. In addition, the animals returned to normal cholesterol levels. The mice that were given a placebo continued to gain weight.
“It is noteworthy that the introduction of NNMT inhibitors did not affect the total amount of food consumed and caused no noticeable side effects,” the study says.
