According to recent study, published in the journal 'Scientific Reports', drinking a cup of coffee could stimulate 'brown fat', the body's own fat-fighting defences, which can further help fight against diabetes and obesity. Brown fat, also known as Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT), is one of the two types of fats found in humans and other mammals.

Initially, brown fat was only attributed to hibernating mammals and babies; however, in the recent years, it was discovered that adults can have brown fat too. People who happen to have a lower body mass index (BMI) are likely to have a higher amount of brown fat.

Professor Michael Symonds, the University of Nottingham who co-directed the study said, "Brown fat works in a different way to other fat in your body and produces heat by burning sugar and fat, often in response to cold. Increasing its activity improves blood sugar control as well as improving blood lipid levels and the extra calories burnt help with weight loss. However, until now, no one has found an acceptable way to stimulate its activity in humans."

For the study, the researchers used a thermal imaging technique to trace the body's brown fat reserves. The technique helped locate brown fat and assess its capacity to produce heat.
