has become the new norm in our culture,
and is now a medical epidemic.
Could plant extracts be the answer?
There is a denial in our society about body fat.
Our current cultural denial about body fat can be traced to a shift in norms.
What we, as a society, begin to see as normal, still does not shift the effect that surplus fat cells have on our bodies!
In other words, if a person is 15 pounds into the overweight-zone, they may look perfectly acceptable from a cosmetic standpoint. However, overweight is a medical term, not simply a cosmetic one.
Why to Say Goodbye to Body Fat: The Right Reasons for Getting Lean
Peculiarly, the more pressure we put on ourselves as a culture to be thin, the fatter we collectively become. Perhaps the solution is to stop trying to be thin for cosmetic reasons, and start trying to get lean for health reasons.
“there seems to be an amazing solution
that is being omitted from the conversation”
The fact is that most medical disorders can be traced to surplus body fat. An excess of body fat increases the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Simply put: overweight people do not live as long.
The Skinny on Body Fat
We accumulate excess body fat for two reasons:
- ▸ fat cells become bloated from excess calories
- ▸ fat cells become dysfunctional, impairing the burning of fatty acids for energy
Until recently, we’ve remained unaware of a direct solution for targeting the mechanisms responsible for these for these bloated and dysfunctional fat cells.A recent survey suggests that approximately 30% of overweight Americans believe they are within normal range, and 70% of obese Americans believe they are simply in the overweight range.
There are those who believe that the medical community has really dropped the ball on this issue. In fact, some go so far as to claim that doctors who do not take aggressive action to reduce overweight patients’ fat mass are committing malpractice. Telling them to diet and exercise might not cut it — and there could a new solution to aid in weight loss.
Anti-Adipocyte Plant Extracts Have Transformative Impact on the Human Body
Adipocyte is simply the technical term for fat cells. So, you can surmise the meaning of Anti-Adipocyte! This is potentially exciting stuff — not just for our appearance, but for our health!
The Life Extension Foundation reports that, of the more than a thousand plants that scientists evaluated (to see which effectively inhibit fat accumulation and enhance fat-burning) there were two that demonstrated significant biological effects:
- ⊙ sphaeranthus indicus flower
- ⊙ mangosteen fruit
There is an article from Life Extension that provides all of the nitty gritty details of the study. Suffice it to say, the figures are remarkable. And, as many of you know, I have personally had pretty astounding results from adding more plants — specifically dark leafy greens — into my daily diet via green smoothies.
