HealthTip  "HEALTH "TIP OF THE WEEK"

Chill out! Turn down your thermostat to boost your metabolism... Dialing down your thermostat may boost metabolism and improve insulin sensitivity. One month of sleeping in a 66-degree room doubled brown fat adipose tissue (BAT) stores in study participants. Brown fat transforms the energy you eat into heat to maintain your core temperature (pretty cool, right?). So the more brown fat you have, the more likely you’ll be to maintain your weight. Brown fat not only burns calories and maintains your body temperature, it also makes your insulin work more efficiently, which decreases the risk of developing diabetes and other metabolic problems. Plus, a cooler bedroom helps you sleep more soundly. (taken from Cleveland Clinic Wellness)
