Faster Fat Metabolism Through Regular Exercise: A New Treatment for Fatty Liver?

Published:January 17th, 2011

Based on many clinical trials, regular exercise enhances fat metabolism resulting to decrease risk in the development of cardiovascular diseases.  However, in a recent study published by the Current Opinion in Lipidology in December 2010, regular physical activity can now be linked to the improvement in the outcome of fatty liver disease, a liver condition characterized by excessive fatty acid accumulation.

In this study, the researchers have discovered that regular aerobic exercise combined with decreased caloric intake leads to a significant decrease of around twenty to sixty percent in the level of fatty acid accumulation within the liver even without apparent weight loss resulting to a decreased risk in the formation of fatty liver disease.

Thus, because of this very impressive result, the researchers concluded that regular exercise is linked to the decreased risk in fatty liver disease and that weight loss is not a critical factor for its improvement.  However, the researchers admitted that their discovery is only in the infancy stage thus, further investigation is necessary before it can be accepted as a scientifically proven fact.
