According to the recent study conducted by an US-based private research focused Northwestern University, carboxytherapy is the new technique suggested to reduce belly fat for a short-term duration and the method cannot be applicable for reducing fat for long-term right now.
Carboxytherapy involves reducing fat around stomach by injecting carbon dioxide into a person's body. However, the technique needs further optimisation as intimated by researchers for benefiting it for a long term. This technique could be used by patients who prefer natural treatment rather than medicines or other therapies.
Carbon dioxide is a cheap gas and if injected into a person's stomach, it reduces the size of fat cells without causing cell death without any harm and considered as a new way in non-invasive fat reduction that already involves radiofrequency, using ultrasound and also by using a laser.
The study observed 16 adults who were not obese and not lean but with a certain BMI range for the carboxytherapy process that injected the adults with Carbon dioxide weekly. After five weeks, the change in belly fat was observed by using ultrasound and noticeably, the patient's body weight was not changed. Anyhow, the effect of the treatment was not identified at the end of six months.
In connection with the fat reduction, World Health Organisation (WHO) had already planned to eliminate trans fat in food items by 2023 and its further details are available in the Related News Section.
