Do you know there are vitamin D receptors on our fat cells?
When scientists discovered this, it was a breakthrough because these receptors help to signal the fat cell to either burn fat or store fat. When vitamin D is provided to these receptors, the fat-burning mechanism starts.
The above fat burning mechanism doesn’t stop here because there are vitamin D receptors in our brain too. When there is enough vitamin D in our body, these brain receptors elevate our mood. If we are vitamin D deficient, our brain receptors signal hunger and cravings more often.
Scientists further discovered that there are vitamin D receptors in our muscles too. This is important because muscle tissue is a robust calorie burner. Each pound of muscle in your body burns 35-50 calories a day just to maintain itself. The more muscles you have, the more calories you burn – even when you are asleep!
Stronger muscles also give you more energy which means you are more likely to burn calories through exercise and everyday movements.
In summary by taking vitamin D rich nutrients through proper diet and supplements, you can keep your body on a fat burning mechanism so you can start reducing body fat.
