Metabolic Benefit for Patients
has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Approximately one-third of all adults are not just overweight, but also overweight to the point of experiencing medical complications and risk factors. Obesity doesn’t sound like a nice word. But it does have a medical meaning. A person is regarded as “obese” once their BMI reaches 30 or higher.
is “body mass index” (see the chart below) and it is used by doctors and medical staff to asses the overall health of a patient relative to the weight and height. It is a simple measure; but one that can yield a number of insights about the person metabolic health.
White Adipose Tissue
is the medical term for belly fat. Our “spare tire” is actually a concern, beyond how we look in the mirror or in a bathing suit. This belly fat is actually a health risk on its own. Adipose tissue is where excess fat is stored. Too much of this adipose tissue (there are white fat cells and brown fat cells) and it begins to spin off a series of hormones that are negative to other organs in the body. These hormones are technically called cytokines and adipokines and they do harm. They also cause an increase in inflammation.
is the enemy of healthy tissue throughout the body. Inflammation may be the single greatest harm that our excess weight can cause us. For example, when an older overweight person experiences knee pain, we may assume it is the wear and tear on the joints over time causing the pain. That may be the source of some of the discomfort; but for most people in that situation, their knee pain is actually caused by inflammation in the joint. This inflammation comes directly from their excess white adipose tissue in the form of cytokines and adipokines that cause swelling in the joints. If the person lost weight, most of the inflammation and pain would disappear. Likewise, when using Adiposano® to neutralize the inflammatory response of excess white adipose tissue, the person can experience a decrease in inflammation and decrease in joint pain. Such is the benefit all over the body when Adiposano® reduces the impact of inflammation.
