And I could go on….
In the battle against toxins your liver is fighting on the front lines. Every chemical that makes it into your bloodstream, be it through your lungs, stomach, or skin, meet up with your liver at some point.
Toxins are either sent to kidneys and colon for elimination, or become trapped in bones, muscles, tissues, or other organs, or get locked into the liver itself or get stored in fat cells
YES! That’s right FAT CELLS….
If you didn’t know that there’s a correlation between the garbage your liver processes and the weight you gain, it’s time for a WAKE-UP CALL!!
While research strongly supports a healthy diet, daily exercise, and quality sleep for achieving and maintaining a healthy ideal body weight.
>But what if you follow all these lifestyle habits, And still can’t get the scale to budge?
In the last 2 decades, researchers have unveiled evidence suggesting that environmental triggers may contribute to overweight individuals and the increase of obesity.
The biggest threat to our health is our own environment some toxins are easy to see and others are undetectable.
Dietary, pharmaceutical, and industrial chemicals, termed “obesogens,” may alter metabolic processes and predispose some people to gain weight.
>> Obesogens include a variety of chemicals with diverse mechanisms of action resulting in excess fat accumulation. While, water soluble chemicals are rather easily metabolized and excreted by the liver, fat-soluble ones are stored in fat cells where they are protected from the body’s natural detoxification systems.
Some obesogens have been linked to a greater number of fat cells or increased fat cell size. Others have been implicated in altering how hormones might affect appetite, satiety, food preferences, and metabolism.
What are Obesogens?
In 2006, Bruce Blumberg of the University of California, Irvine, first coined the term “obesogens” to describe man-made chemicals still widely used today in PVC products. Obesogens increase body fat regardless of diet. Bloomberg showed that these chemicals caused a large increase in the body fat of mice independent of what they ate.
