Is Nitric Oxide the new method of weight loss or prevent Type 2 Diabetes ?
Depends on how you see the new study, I’m sharing with you now.
According to a new study by the Scientists from Edinburgh and Southampton (Scotland), led by colleagues at the Telethon Kids Institute in Perth, Western Australia : Sunlight is key to fighting childhood obesity and diabetes.
Spending more time in the sun is found to beat obesity and diabetes as a natural gas called nitric oxide, is released by the skin after exposure to sunlight. This nitric oxide gas helps people to control their metabolism and slow weight gain. When ultraviolet light (in the Sunlight) reacted with nitric oxide, the test mice displayed fewer warning signs of diabetes, such as abnormal glucose levels and resistance to insulin etc. The studies in the past have shown that nitric oxide can lower blood pressure after exposure to ultra-violet lamps. The nitric oxide released from the skin may have beneficial effects not only on heart and blood vessels but also on the way our body regulates metabolism. Apart from Nitric Oxide, the body produces vitamin D in response to sunlight, which also has health benefits such as stronger bones etc. That’s why Sunlight is called the biggest source of Vitamin D.
A finding which makes the researchers recommend soaking up in the Sun (a Sheryl Crow Song) to prevent weight gain, pace up metabolism, prevent childhood obesity, childhood diabetes and prevent type 2 diabetes. The study didn’t find the direct link between nitric oxide and lowered risk of Type 2 diabetes though.
The researchers say that rubbing a cream containing Nitric Oxide on to the skin can have the same effect. Which is not a very new advice as some bodybuilders of both sexes are already using nitric oxide before and after their workouts.
The findings, published in the journal Diabetes, show the benefits of moderate exposure to the sun’s rays. What we can learn for the study. Soak up some Sun Everyday. It’s always good to be Natural.
