    any thoughts on Irisin?


    I just saw a news article on it today and seems very interesting. Are you familiar with it or have any thoughts to share on it?

    It is far too early to say one way or the next and I certainly cannot say I have studied it to any extensive degree as I think no one has.

    But, things that increase brown fat or shift preferential offering of adipose type WAT --> BAT would certainly be entertaining; but there are many things that have promised this over the years and have subsequently fallen short, so I will remain a skeptic until I can see replicated data from a different lab (I think the media coverage of the topic is very premature despite its appearance in the scientific literature).

    which is due to the hype the media made. the news coverage is probably part of their business plan to potentially justify research costs whether or not the product does anything...
