Each of us has a higher or lower body fat content. If you touch your thighs, you'll see a layer of subcutaneous fat. It is especially visible in women.
Now look at your stomach. Often you may notice a slight bulge, which means that visceral fat can build up around your belly, which is a risk to your intestines and liver. This type of fat can cause serious health problems.
Doctors emphasize that both women and men have a tendency to accumulate visceral fat. There is a great risk that this type of fat will sooner or later cause a heart attack or other cardiovascular problems.
Visceral fat is not inactive. This means that it doesn't cover your stomach and liver passively. On the contrary, visceral fat is very active and releases toxic substances into the bloodstream.
This type of fat causes various types of inflammation that can lead to hardening of the arteries. This can lead to problems with the digestive system and large intestine. It is also often the cause of diabetes and some types of cancer.
Not everyone knows that visceral fat has a negative effect on your well-being. Do you know how? It causes fatigue, general malaise, mood swings, stress, anxiety, as well as some types of depression that cause blood cortisol to increase.
The mere fact that visceral fat releases toxic substances into the blood causes the so-called metabolic syndrome, also known as insulin resistance syndrome. If you suffer from hypertension, visceral fat can only worsen your condition. This is something you must remember.
