Overweight is a predisposing factor for the development of many complications and diseases, including high blood pressure, cardiovascular problems or diabetes. Essentially linked to an excessive presence of toxins in fat cells, it represents a daily risk for the body. To remedy this and to tackle the heart of the problem, a rebalancing of food and an improvement of the hygiene of life are essential. Find out how simple daily changes will improve your health.
What impact do toxins stored in body fat cells have?
Bile is secreted by the liver to help digest fats and detoxify the body. It contributes in particular to the expulsion of some waste including alcohol and excess of cholesterol. This crucial step for the body "cleans" the body of toxins and reduces the risk of developing health problems, including overweight. However, sometimes environmental or dietary factors interfere with this function, leading to an overload of toxins in the body, especially in fat cells.
As Dr. Arnaud Cocaul, a nutritionist, explains, many toxins are stored in fat cells, which are mainly linked to persistent organic pollutants. As a result, weight loss and detox are essential to release toxins that once in the bloodstream will be eliminated through the kidneys or liver.
To facilitate this process and fight against an accumulation of waste in fat cells, here are some simple tips to follow daily:
1- A healthy diet
This seems obvious, yet the poor diet is associated with the risk of developing several pathologies that undermine the metabolism. A diversified diet rich in nutrients thus makes it possible to counter numerous complications inherent to the accumulation of toxins in the body.
It will also promote the proper functioning of the digestive system for better elimination of harmful substances. Fruit, such as apple or lemon, is rich in fiber including pectin, a stimulant intestinal microbiota, reducing inflammation and inducing weight loss according to an in-vivo study.
Frequent detoxification treatments are an effective way to preserve one's body from the accumulation of various toxins (pollution, preservatives, chemicals, pesticides, stabilizers, etc.). They are very useful to the liver because they allow it to get rid of waste that disrupts its operation. A study has shown that detoxification programs help maintain the balance of the metabolic system and prevent the incidence of type 2 diabetes.
3- Regular physical exercise
Medium-intensity physical activity is required to stimulate blood circulation and help cleanse the body through sweating.
One study found that high-intensity exercise can reduce fat and increase the chance of weight loss, especially when combined with a balanced diet based on caloric restrictions. The World Health Organization recommends 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical exercise at least five days a week in order to keep fit and optimize one's health.
4- Rest and less stress
Stress is considered the disease of the century and causes many seemingly innocuous complications, which can subsequently increase. One study highlighted the relationship between certain variables, including chronic stress and obesity, which would result in weight gain or greater difficulty in losing weight.
In addition, a restful sleep is also crucial to allow the body to detoxify itself. According to Dr. Sylvie Royant-Parola, psychiatrist president of the Morphe Network, lack of sleep affects physiological signals related to hunger and satiety, increasing the risk of opting for unhealthy and high sugar foods.
Therefore, it is essential to privilege moments of relaxation beneficial to the body, and to engage in activities that can control and better control stress.
