Acceleration of metabolism leads to weight loss, and there are products that help him "shake" is particularly effective. Nutritionists from the US were convinced that it needs to eat whole grains, according to The American journal of clinical nutrition.
American scientists from Tufts University, conducted an experiment involving 81 people, men and women aged 40 to 65 years. These volunteers for eight weeks follow a special diet prepared by the sponsors.
The diet was that, after a two-week period, the same meals for the participants were divided into two groups, one of which is used whole grains, and the other - products from refined grains.
In the final experiment, in summing up the results of the two groups revealed that the "whole grain" group of people spend more calories. "They lost in the feces of almost 100 calories per day more than people from the other group - by accelerating the metabolism of carbohydrates and large losses", - explained the authors.
According to scientists, the more active metabolism in those who consumed whole grains is associated with the fact that these products stimulate the growth of specific microorganisms. Under their influence in the gut microbiota is activated that produces mikrotsepochechnye fatty acids that make the body more quickly saturated. In particular, under the experimental conditions the specialists observed the growth of bacteria Lachnospira.
Experts explain that the whole grains, as opposed to purified, stored envelope and other parts of the grain. Eating whole grains not only speeds up the metabolism, but also helps to reduce blood glucose levels - is shown by the data of the study.
At the same time, scientists warn that whole grains improve metabolism observed only if the overall healthy diet.
