White adipose tissue, or white fat, is used by the body to store energy in the form of triglycerides. This kind of fat has little mitochondria, hence its white color. Brown adipose tissue, or brown fat, is used to burn energy. Unlike white fat, it contains an abundance of mitochondria, which explains its brown color. Brown fat expends energy via non-shivering thermogenesis, and it is highly activated during cold conditions. Most people only have a small amount of brown fat in their bodies. Also, as they age, the levels of brown fat decrease. There are, however, individuals with higher amounts of brown fat than the normal population, which gives them an advantage in terms of burning calories, due to the increased thermogenesis and thus increase in metabolism.
...... I'm still floundering around with the injectables I bought in Mexico without blood tests. I think I told you I double-dosed myself by accident, thinking that the concentration was 100mg/100 ml instead of 200 mg/100ml. Anyway, I had a series of tests from that injection of 600 mg, which were a complete waste of time; the readings were all sky-high, of course. My DHT thirty-six hours after the injection was on a normal adult male scale of 30 - 85, and the FT and TT were similarly off the charts. My doctor wants me to take 150 mg of Testosterone enanthate every ten days on the theory that at the end of the cycle my testicles will be forced to work a little bit. I've read several suggestions of taking 100 mg every 7 days, to avoid the ups and downs. I've never asked you about the problem of testicular atrophy. Right now I'm just concerned about the potential long-term effects of the peak part of the injection cycle on my liver. John, SF, CA
It also plays a major role in regulating thyroid function by boosting the thyroid hormone triiodthyronine, . T3. Additionally, 7-keto DHEA helps increase the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins by accelerating the rate at which mitochondrial cells produce more ATP, the body’s fundamental energy molecule. 7-keto DHEA also improves thermogenic processes via transport of protons across mitochondrial membranes known as uncoupling proteins. UCPs directly affect thermogenic activity and bodyfat reduction, including how the body burns fat while you are doing absolutely nothing because it helps form L-carnitine, the mitochondrial fat-burning amino acid.
