Vital Facts of Short Term Diets - Catch The Vitamin Behind An Ample Waist!

If Vitamin C levels are low in the body and you are on a dieting course, there might be a tendency to get prosperous at the waist, say researchers. Nutrition scientists from// Arizona State University report that the amount of Vitamin C in the body has a direct relation with the lower body fat.

If there is far too less vitamin C in the blood stream, it could cause increased body fat and waist measurements. Nutrition researchers from Arizona State University have found the culprit in the amount of vitamin C in the blood stream that also indicates how the body uses the fat as fuel, both during exercise and at rest.

Bonnie Beezhold, a graduate student in the laboratory of Dr. Carol Johnston enabled a presentation on the impact of vitamin C depletion on a short-term diet. 20 obese men and women, intending to go on a low fat diet were segregated depending upon body weight into a vitamin C group taking a vitamin C capsule everyday and another would be consuming a placebo. Nobody, not even the researchers were in the know of who received the true Vitamin C tablet or the placebo. All participants consumed a low-fat diet that was adjusted to promote a slow weight loss.

The finding showed that during the start of the clinical trial, participants with the lowest concentrations of vitamin C in their blood had the highest body fat mass, with very low fat oxidizing capacity, as compared to the less obese counter parts. With a consistent amount of vitamin C intake, it was found that blood concentrations of vitamin c increased in the group taking vitamins, while the levels dropped almost 27% in those, who formed part of the control group taking a placebo that actually reduced their capacity to oxidize fat.

It was observed that the diet plan worked well for all participants , though the Vitamin C group found their body fat mass decreasing slightly more than the other group that had not consumed Vitamin C. Both groups appeared to hav e lost an average of nine pounds, indicating that vitamin C depletion did not hamper the weight reduction capacity in short term diets. Researchers are probing further on the reduced oxidation of fat found in cases of vitamin C depletion, which could have a bearing on the fat levels amongst non dieters.
