A unique discovery was made by scientists in the observation and examination of the pygmies in Tanzania. The results of the research published edition of Current Biology. As it turned out, each person there is a "limit consumption". Once this limit sets in, the body goes into power-saving mode and sends nutrients to the muscles.
The researchers compared the metabolism of pygmies Tensai and residents of large cities in Europe. Pygmies, as it turned out, spend the day with as much power as the people leading a sedentary lifestyle. Recall, the indigenous people of the tribes need to hunt and to use physical force to get their own food.
The human body adapts to the environment. As soon as the load exceeds the normal individual, the body switches to a reduced energy consumption. The reserves of the liver are not affected.
