People that gain weight often face many different health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. The most striking fact is that toxins accumulate in the fat that overweight people have.
Here are more details why this accumulation occurs:
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) program that was called National Human Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS) found that human fat contains 4 industrial solvents and 1 dioxin. Also they found that it contains 9 other chemicals from which 3 are more dioxins and 1 furan. These results were found in more than 90% of the samples.
Dioxins are class of chemical pollutants that often form throughout the process of combustion, such as burning trash at the backyard, forest fires, and waste incineration. Your body actually stores these toxins in the fat cells in order to prevent them from entering deep in the organs.
There are two identified types of toxins:
- Water soluble toxins which could be eliminated through the blood and kidneys
- Fat soluble toxins which requires the liver to transform them into water soluble
The liver contains greenish-yellow fluid that is called bile which is important for the process of digestion of fats. Also the bile is responsible for eliminating toxins from the blood and prevents damage to the red blood cells. During the process of digestion the gut is becoming selectively permeable in order to stimulate the lymphatic system to absorb fats and carry them to the liver. During this process the good fats become cholesterol, hormones, cell membranes, skin cells, and brain cells, whereas the bad ones are eliminated through the bile and leave the body in form of fecal matter.
The lymphatic system
Gut Associated Lymphatic Tissue (GALT) is the lymphatic tissue that often surrounds the intestinal system. The GALT actually is responsible for the entire process of the dietary as the toxic fats from the digestive system and it supports the process of transfer to the lymphatic system. These are the signs of congested GALT:
- Stiffness of the joints
- Swelling in the hands and feet
- Irritation of the skin
- Holding additional weight around the belly
- Allergic reactions
The accumulation of toxins in the fat
This process actually is a result of the toxic substances that soak the lymph and neutralizes the leukocytes in the lymph nodes. The process is really badly impaired if the lymphatic system is busy or the digestive system is unhealthy. Due to these reasons the liver becomes congested and results with thicker bile which is ineffective against toxicity. Also it results with expel of fat-soluble toxins in the blood stream and they get stored in the fat cells.
Here is how to remove these toxins:
- Get fit
You should always try to keep active life in order to remain healthy and prevent accumulation of fat and toxins in the body. Regular exercising will help you sweat and remove toxins through the skin. Also if you are active it will stimulate the lymphatic and cardiovascular system. Make sure that these two system health is important in order to remove the toxins.
You need to detoxify the body on regular basis by using natural ingredients. Also make sure that you avoid consuming toxic substances because it will become harder to remove them. Make sure that you consume organic food.
- Eat well
You need to consume foods that are rich in dietary fiber in order to stimulate the process of absorption. Such foods are calciferous vegetables, whole grains, and fruits.
Stress is the main cause for inflammation and it is important that you try to reduce it by consuming healthy fats and nutrients.
