(Best Syndication News) - If you are wanting to lose weight, you might want to add exercise to your diet plan. According to a study conducted by Brazilian researchers at the University of Campinas, exercise can help restore neurons that help tell your body that you are feeling full. By feeling full on less food, this can help to reduce calorie intake and to help lose weight in the long run. The study will be published next week in the online open access journal PLoS Biology.

The researchers studied how obese rodents hypothalamic neurons signals were restored after exercising . The researchers found that the obese animals that exercised increased the IL-6 and the IL-10 protein levels found in the hypothalamus. These molecules are important for improving insulin and leptin sensitivity. Leptin is known to signal to the hypothalamus portion of the brain that tells you that you are full.

(Best Syndication News) - A study investigated if energy drinks actually improved weight loss or increase athletic performance and found that not all claims were justified. The researchers were from Nova Southeastern University in Florida will have their study report printed in the most recent issue of The Physician and Sportsmedicine journal.

What they found is that most energy drinks had similar ingredients of caffeine along with other ingredients such as taurine, sucrose, guarana, ginseng, niacin, pyridoxine and cyanocobalamin. The researchers believe that most of the performance enhancement comes from the caffeine content of the drink. Caffeine has been shown in other studies to improve aerobic performance, but is inconsistent with anaerobic performance.

The researchers found that there is some research data that shows the combination of an energy drink consumed at the time of exercise might improve body fat reduction. This energy burning could decrease as a person becomes accustomed to the caffeine in the drink, which would mean less weight loss overtime.
