Il coffee it does not help to lose weight. This is confirmed by a group of Australian scientists from Queensland, who have also published a study on Journal of Nutrition, where they claim that if the pure caffeine manages to burn fat and to contain weight gain, coffee extract, on the other hand, fails to affect fat reduction.
And the cause is due to other yet unidentified components, which they counteract and nullify the action of caffeine.
"Our hypothesis - cardiovascular pharmacologist Lindsay Brown explained to L'Australian - was that every effect observed with coffee was due to caffeine, but other components in coffee, we don't know which ones, seem to counteract the weight-reducing properties of caffeine. ".
Some components present in coffee, in fact, they have not yet been well identified, while all the properties and possible effects of other substances already known are not fully known. This is the case with the cafestol, of kahweol and melanoidina, which give the coffee its unmistakable color.
"The obvious question for a pharmacologist is: what effect do they have?" - added the doctor - highlighting how the knowledge of one of the most consumed drinks in the world is still limited.
At this point, coffee lovers will surely be wondering whether or not they should continue to consume this drink regularly.
According to Brown, we can assume that thecaffeine alone helps burn excess fat but at the same time it advises against using caffeine-based pills to stay awake or keep weight under control.
But there's good news: both caffeine and coffee (as long as it's not restricted) improve heart and liver functions!
Once again then, by following the right measure and common sense we can stay fit and healthy.
