No matter how much some people learn about the goodness of regular exercise, they never want to get their butts off the couch. But we have good news for all the exercise haters out there. Nestle is working on a drink that will help in burning calories without strenuous workouts.
A team of eight scientists is reportedly doing research for Nestle to develop a drink that will help to stimulate the metabolism like moderate exercise. Kei Sakamoto, a Nestle scientist, says, “Instead of 20 minutes of jogging or 40 minutes of cycling, it may help boost metabolism with moderate exercise like brisk walking. They’d get similar effects with less strain.” So it seems you will still have to do a bit of physical activity. But it’s better than liposuction, right?
Nestle’s research has found out that there’s a compound called C13 that can be used to stimulate AMPK, which is an enzyme that regulates metabolism. The researchers are now looking to find extracts from fruits and plants that could be used to activate AMPK. But even if Nestle becomes successful in it’s research, it reportedly will take many years before they start testing the beverage on animals.
