We thought butter in coffee was a crazy concoction, but could this oil-infused water actually burn fat?
Asprey explained to the New York Daily News that the oil helps our cells absorb water and provides a temporary energy boost. The body, according to Asprey, does not store the fat the way it does sugar. “The oils enhance thermogenesis, which is a fancy word for ‘fat burning,’” he said. “They get burned as energy and have an appetite-suppression effect. It’s not like we put in sunflower oil or canola.”
FATWater is only available at the Bulletproof Coffee Shop in Santa Monica and a natural foods store in Los Angeles. Asprey plans to expand the oil-infused water nationwide. He is the first person to patent and market oil mixed with water.
