Recently, a study published in the Journal of the Public Library of Science shows that ursolic acid contained in apple skin helps prevent obesity. In this animal study, a group of rats ate a high-fat diet for several weeks, but contained ursolic acid, which increased muscle mass and produced more brown fat that burned calories. Rats who ate the same food but did not contain ursolic acid became significantly fatter.
Dr. Christopher Adams, an associate professor at the University of Iowa in the United States, believes that mice that have been exposed to ursolic acid have less weight gain and are less likely to develop various diseases associated with diabetes and fatty liver, and the calories they burn will be More. This therapy is expected to be used in the future to treat muscle atrophy caused by human aging.
