DESCRIPTION: The fat-burning properties of brown adipose tissue can be boosted by cold exposure, certain flavor molecules, and arginine-rich foods.
What is brown adipose tissue? Check out my “prequel” video: Brown Fat: Losing Weight Through Thermogenesis (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/brown-fat-losing-weight-through-thermogenesis).
For more on the arginine story, see Fat Burning Via Arginine (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/fat-burning-via-arginine/). The arginine may also play a role in the effects nuts may have on penile blood flow (Pistachio Nuts for Erectile Dysfunction http://nutritionfacts.org/video/pistachio-nuts-for-erectile-dysfunction/).
Spicy food may also help with digestive disorders (Cayenne Pepper for Irritable Bowel Syndrome and Chronic Indigestion http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cayenne-pepper-for-irritable-bowel-syndrome-and-chronic-indigestion/) and the hot pepper compound can be a lifesaver for cluster headache sufferers (Hot Sauce in the Nose for Cluster Headaches? http://nutritionfacts.org/video/hot-sauce-in-the-nose-for-cluster-headaches/).
