A couple of weeks ago we talked about cherry angiomas and this was obviously fascinating to many of you based on the post from that article. Today we will take a look at some of the deeper cultural challenges that this elevated estrogen has created.
fat is a problem many people face as we hit a certain age. Some might
consider it as an inevitable fact of life...just something to "live
with." Others do their hardest to get rid of it. Whether you're just
living with it orbattling it, the fact is that abdominal fat is more
dangerous than you think. More so than general obesity, abdominal
obesity is closely associated to cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
SUBCUTANEOUS vs. VISCERAL FAT
There are two types of fat in the abdominal area. Subcutaneous fat is located beween the skin and abdominal wall (or abdominal muscles). It is the fat that you can grasp. Visceral fat,
on the other hand, lies deeper and surrounds the abdominal organs. Our
focus is on visceral fat because it is visceral fat that is
more dangerous and is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular
disease, diabetes, colorectal cancer, gallbladder issues, chronic
inflammation and aging-related diseases.
Here are some key facts about visceral fat:
fat cells are biologically active and can disrupt the normal
functioning of hormones such as leptin and adiponectin, which can
profoundly affect appetite and insulin sensitivity.
fat releases inflammatory cytokines which increase the risk
for cardiovascular and aging-associated diseases and promote chronic
fat can also influence lipid metabolism since it is located near the
portal vein (the vein that carries blood from the intestines to the
liver). Substances released by visceral fat are more likely to enter the
portal vein into the liver, which can then affect the production of
cholesterol and triglycerides.
studies show that people with increased waist circumference (a measure
of excess visceral fat) are more likely to develop insulin resistance,
diabetes, heart disease, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, dementia,
colorectal cancer and more.
THE GOOD AND BAD NEWS
bad news is that many substances that we are exposed to contribute
towards more visceral fat: Estrogenic compounds, Endocrine-disrupting
chemicals and Sugar. It may very well be difficult to avoid all of them
all of the time.
good news is that there is a lot you can do to fight abdominal fat.
Visceral fat, in fact, responds most favorably to exercise and a healthy
diet. Making lifestyle changes can therefore have a great impact on
reducing visceral fat.
Get Rid of Visceral Fat with MYOMIN
For those who need additional help in keeping the belly fat off, Myomin is recommended. Here's why.
you have been exercising regularly and eating healthy but still cannot
get rid of the belly fat, hormonal imbalance may be the cause. When
estrogen dominance is involved, there is a vicious cycle involving
estrogen, fat tissue and aromatase that makes it very difficult to
remove that excess weight in the belly.
estrogen (or estradiol, more specifically) promotes fat gain,
especially around the abdomen. Abdominal fat tissue has the highest
concentration of aromatase, which converts testosterone to estradiol. So
more fat tissue promotes more aromatase which promotes more estradiol.
And the cycle goes on and on.
MYOMIN interrupts this belly fat-promoting cycle by reducing aromatase expression and estradiol level. As
aromatase expression reduces, so does the conversion of testosterone to
estradiol. Eventually testosterone level increases (which promotes
muscle buildup) and estradiol level declines (which means less belly fat
Myomin's effect on abdominal fat is evident in these cases.
K. Kaplan, DC from Florida, has a 58-year-old female patient who weighed 245 lbs. After a year on Myomin, she lost 52 lbs and 4 inches around her waist.
J. Weber, DC, DCBCN from New York, has a 54-year-old male patient who took Myomin for 6 months. His waist size reduced from 40 inches to 38 inches.
J. Wycoff, DO from Michigan, has a 78-year-old male patient who took Myomin for 6 months. He lost 15 lbs and 2 inches around his waist.
