Filled with mitochondria, generates heat instead of ATP.
Sleep well because decreased melatonin means poor production of brown fat o PGC-1a (key regulator of energy metabolism) highly expressed – induced by cold, mediates mitochondrial biogenesis o (Same effect via polyphenols & alpha lipoic acid by activating the AMPK – this is just for us Food Craft info.
