Drink Beer, Fight Obesity!


Johnan Auwerx, head of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale in Lausanne, Switzerland, has found a miracle molecule called nicotinamide riboside (NR) that can help fight obesity, lengthen your lifespan AND improve muscle strength without side effects, says an article in the Times of India. It has also been found in milk and other foods.

Working with Weill Cornell Medical College in New York, his team found that mice on a high-fat diet that were fed NR gained significantly less weight - 60 per cent - than mice eating the same diet without NR supplements.

And none of the NR-treated mice indicated that they were developing diabetes, unlike the untreated mice.

Mice which were fed with NR supplements over a ten-week period showed better endurance performance than those who were not.

They were also in better shape - and this was confirmed by observations of their muscle fibres under the microscope.
The article ends by saying that they don't know how much you would have to drink to get enough NR to see results.

Probably far too much at one sitting than I am capable of.
