In 2009, the ground breaking
discovery of Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT), also known as brown fat, in adults has
led to various studies on the effect of body cooling on BAT and the resulting weight loss and favorable impact on type 2 diabetes. The Joslin Diabetes Center at Harvard Medical Center has led this research starting in 2010 using the Polar Chiller Circulating Water Vest System. Since then, our system has become the standard for Universities and hospitals throughout the world working on BAT and weight loss research.
Polar Products has provided the same system Harvard used to:
And many more! See additional locations here
Now for the first time the system Harvard used to prove the effectiveness of cooling for weight loss is available for home use!
Here's what Harvard's Joslin Diabetes Center has to say about our vest system:
"We have had great success with your cooling system." - Lauren Weiner, Joslin Diabetes Center
A Harvard University study found that by cooling the body to approximately 57°F with our Polar Cool Flow® Circulating water Vest and Arctic Chiller Reservoir System, is ideal for activating brown fat. Once activated, this brown fat begins to burn calories at a high rate within the body, resulting in weight loss. These results were published in the book The Diabetes Reset, by George L. King, M.D.
If the full Harvard purchased system is beyond your budget the book above also recommended our Polar Kool Max Adjustable Zipper Vest, as a cooling vest that helps trigger brown fat, and helps burn several hundred calories per day-the equivalent of a thirty-minute bout of exercise1!
