Burn Belly Fat – Both Visceral and Subcutaneous
Healthy smoothies help our bodies maintain an optimum weight and burn belly fat. Excess pounds especially around the abdomen is a cause for concern. Subcutaneous fat which lies beneath the dermis or skin is unsightly. This fat can be quite apparent in the hips, thighs and vicinity of the belly button.
However, the more dangerous fat is visceral and remains unseen. Aside from disrupting hormonal function, studies have shown that visceral fat which surrounds the internal organs produce inflammatory molecules. These in turn can damage organs and lead to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity.
The metabolically active visceral fat releases fatty acids. Over time, the liver may have trouble processing too many toxic elements. Soon, cholesterol known as LDL (low-density lipoproteins) released into the blood circulation will block the flow of blood to major organs. This constriction occurs when LDL forms plaque on the arterial walls. To discourage an overload of toxic activity, one must burn belly fat.
A certain level of visceral fat is necessary to cushion and protect the internal organs. Healthy smoothies support the nutritional aspect of lowering visceral fat to an optimal level. In general, fruit and vegetables are made of complex carbohydrates which help maintain blood sugar levels. Complex carbohydrates are made of 3 or more sugar molecules linked together. The body's processing of sugar needs to remain in balance by regulating insulin and glucagon. Complex carbohydrates allow a steady release of energy which stabilizes the energy levels in the body. An imbalance can result in an increase in fat.
