Janus Kinase: New Enzyme Found for Weight Loss?

The so-called Janus kinase is an enzyme which transforms white adipose tissue (WAT) into brown adipose tissue (BAT). Brown adipose tissue – unlike white adipose tissue – burns calories in fat cells to produce body warmth. Thereby unloved kilos would quasi melt away! Janus kinase, which up to now played a role as point of attack in the therapy of cancer, could also be applied therapeutically in other fields of medicine.

How important brown adipose tissue can be for weight reduction is shown in a study in mice. The mice got divided into two groups. Half of the mice, which have been permanently exposed to daylight, showed a considerable weight gain, whereas the others – at same amount of food, but with 8 hours less light exposure – could maintain their weight. The reason for this: The production of brown adipose tissue for energy burning is inhibited by too much daylight! Now researchers are looking for usable remedies to strengthen brown adipose tissue despite of light exposure.

Until this enzyme is therapeutically useable, there are other possibilities to lose unpleasant excess kilos. A therapy with bioidentical hormones (Bioidentical Hormonal Regeneration Therapy, BHRT) helps to lose weight by restoring the hormone balance, thereby preventing weight gain caused by hormonal imbalances.

Local fat pads can be removed by means of a smooth liposuction with microcannulas. Liposuction should be performed already prior to the actual weight loss, so that tissue can shrink up better through removal of fat cells, whereby sagging skin pockets can be avoided. Furthermore, by reducing the number of fat cells the production of estrogen is reduced, which is also relevant for a sustainable weight loss.

A further way for supporting weight loss is the intake of the natural carbohydrate blocker Weight Loss Phaseolin, available in our web shop. The extract obtained from white kidney beans inhibits the conversion of excess carbohydrates into body fat by binding them in the small intestine. As a result they get discharged unused without being stored in the body’s fat pads.
