There is an age old dispute as to whether obesity is more environmental or genetic. Now a study has revealed that the answer may lie in a little bit of both, implying that parents who lose weight via supplements like Liproxenol might help their children maintain a weight that is normal and healthy.
In a press release dated June 16, 2013, an Ohio University was cited with conducting research on male mice to determine the effect of their weight on that of their offspring. In this study, Felicia Nowak, associate professor at Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine, reveals how she fed a group of male mice a diet that was high in fat over the course of 13 weeks.
At the end of that time, the male mice were then mated with a group of female mice that were on a low-fat diet. Once the offspring were born, they too were placed on a low-fat diet and their weight was assessed at 20 days, 6 weeks, 6 months and one year.
Researchers found that the offspring of the obesity induced male mice were larger at 6 weeks, 6 months and one year than the offspring of the male mice that were fed low-fat diets prior to mating. In addition, their body fat composition put them at higher risk of future health issues.
The researchers suggest that this result occurs not because of a change in genes, but due to a difference in how they’re expressed. This is largely in part due to the environment and lifestyle of the obese male mice. Therefore, it is a genetic predisposition toward obesity for the offspring, but with an environmental emphasis.
One finding that stunned the researchers was that the mice of the obese male fathers were also more active. However, the study provides no plausible explanation for why this shift in activity occurs other than to suggest that the mice may be trying on their own to combat the extra weight that they are inclined to hold.
This research, if applied to humans, may also find that men who are at a normal and healthy weight prior to having children have a higher likelihood of fathering children of normal, healthy weights as well. This also means that weight loss supplements like Liproxenol may help fathers-to-be reduce their children’s risk of obesity and obesity related diseases.
Liproxenol is a weight loss supplement that contains all natural ingredients such as green tea, vitamin B6, cayenne powder and dandelion root. It was created by Liproxenol Nutraceuticals to increase metabolism, decrease appetite and burn excess fat.
