Researchers at Taiwan's National Chung Hsing University found that antioxidants tweaked fat cells from mice, reported the online edition of health magazine WebMD.

Antioxidants made fat cells cut their production of triglycerides - a type of fat found in the blood - by curbing a protein needed to make triglycerides.
