NIGHTMARE FUEL 😰 (copied image and text, but they were selling some sketchy product so edited to remove that nonsense 🤐) #Visceral fat is a "deep" gel-like fat that's actually wrapped around major organs, including the liver, pancreas, and kidneys. .
If you have a protruding belly and large waist, that's a clear sign you're storing dangerous visceral fat. While it's most noticeable and pronounced in obese individuals, anyone can have visceral fat, many without even knowing it. Even people who appear to be very thin can have visceral fat.
Visceral fat is especially dangerous because these fat cells do more than just sit there and cause your pants to feel tight; they also change the way your body operates.
Extra visceral fat is linked to an increased risk for:
*#Coronary Heart Disease
*Sexual Dysfunction .
*Sleep Disorders .
Visceral fat is considered toxic and spells double-trouble in the body because it is capable of provoking inflammatory pathways, plus signaling molecules that can interfere with the body's normal hormonal functions. In fact, it acts almost like it's very own organ since it is capable of having such a large impact on the body. .
Fat cells do more than simply store extra calories, they proved to be much more involved in human physiology than we had previously thought. We now know that fat tissue itself acts like it's own organ by pumping out hormones and inflammatory substances. Strong excess fat around the organs increases production of pro-inflammatory chemicals known as cytokines, which leads to inflammation; at the same time, it interferes with hormones that regulate appetite, weight, mood, and brain function.
