Freeze Your Fat Away—at home in just 30 minutes a day!
Cool Shapes™ Contouring Shorts
Most of the fat in our bodies is white fat. Fat stores energy and acts as an insulator. White fat specifically, which could be even more than 25% of body weight, does not generate heat.
When we gain or lose weight, we don't gain or lose any fat cells - they just change in size, gaining or losing the massive, greasy droplet of fat that sits inside of them.
Researchers came up with a model ( based after C-14 dating of fat from people that were exposed to nuclear bombs in the cold war) that suggests that we replace about 9% of our fat cells each year, even after we hit that point in our lives when there is no more net gain or loss of fat cells.
Until recently, it was thought that brown adipose tissue was limited to infants in humans, but research now identifies that up to 80% of adults might also have brown adipose tissue.
Mitochondrial protein uncoupling protein-1 (UCP-1), - characterizes brown fat.
Brown fat cells are only about 50% the size of white fat cells
Brown fat cells are highly efficient in burning calories to generate heat
To date no direct linkage between ethnicity and genetics and brown fat – although people speculate those with a type two diabetics might have less…area of active research
Not a finite number, brown fat cells are constantly being turned over. In fact the rate of turnover can be increase by cold temperatures
In addition, cold can also convert white fat to brown fat
In addition, brown adipocytes are present in human adipose tissue under normal conditions and are known to expand in response to adrenergic (having to do with adrenaline) stimuli, such as in patients with pheochromocytoma (is a rare tumor of the adrenal gland that causes too much release of epinephrine and norepinephrine)
It has been observed that 50g of brown fat in your body is capable of burning 500 calories a day
About 10 minutes at 50F (10C) - Cool Shapes gel packs come out of the home freezer at about 38F (depending on the freezer setting) they stay this cold for just a few minutes then begin to lose coolness gradually. By wearing the Cool Shapes short for 30 you will hit the target range of 10 minutes at 50F
Once the cells are exposed to cold they are in damaged. The body senses the damage and sends immune cells to the tissue. Macrophages, as particular type of immune cell, act as cleaners that eat up injured or dead cells, and in this case fat cells that have undergone cytolysis. Once the macrophages and other immune system components have digested the dead cells, the cells make their way through the bloodstream and eventually into the digestive system for final disposition. This process happens on the time scale of weeks to months. In addition, since the “eaten”fat is inside of the immune cells, it is never directed exposed to the blood stream, i.e. that is why you do not get a rise in triglycerides in blood serum.
The cold gel packs should be frozen in the freezer for at least 2 hours prior to usage. They will be anywhere from 34 to 38 degrees depending on the freezer. The gel pack should never be put directly on the skin will warm up only staying that cold for 15 to 20 minutes- this will avoid over-icing, freezer burn, or even soft tissue damage. Your skin will stay very cool for 30 to 40 minutes after use, but it will never feel uncomfortable to your skin.
this is to cool the area where often brown fat cells are more dense in adults (there and the back of the neck)
The gel packs are made up of 72% water/ 23% glycerine/ 5% CMC (Carboxy Methyl Cellulose). They are flexible when frozen
