Just 50 mg Of This SHRINKS Your Fat Cells?
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
There are many different factors that may lead to weight gain.
And this could cause a huge DRAIN on your energy and hormone levels.
One of the biggest risk factors, according to some research, is inflamed FAT CELLS.
Inflamed fat cells may decrease hormone production and FAT-UTILIZING proteins from being released. which could lead to the inability of your body to tell you when you are full.
But ONE change to your diet could increase your ability to bring sick fat cells back to NORMAL.
Inflammation sometimes can be caused by damage from free radicals.
Free radicals are a byproduct of metabolism, and cause
MASSIVE DAMAGE and increased INFLAMMATION
To stop free radical damage, you should increase your intake of fruits and vegetables that are rich in antioxidants, into your diet.
This may increase your antioxidant level, which could increase your ability to scavenge and DESTROY free radicals.
Astaxanthin, which is a powerful carotenoid found in krill, algae, and other marine life, could be a new way to boost weight loss.
And, research shows, Astaxanthin may be able to prevent metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.
You see, when your fat cells are inflamed, your body is unable to secrete powerful fat burning hormones.
Plus, extra weight changes the way your body utilizes insulin.
It could be caused by 1) a weak insulin signal or 2) your cells' inability to utilize insulin correctly.
No matter what the problem is, it could lead to chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and others.
However, administration of 50 mg/day for 22 weeks drastically improved the health of FAT CELLS in mice.
Researchers determined that the mice experienced drastic changes in their metabolic health.
They also noticed a decrease in systolic blood pressure and an increase in HDL cholesterol.
Intake of Astaxanthin was able to SHRINK the size of thier FAT cells.
Astaxanthin also increased the secretion of Adiponectin--a potent protein secreted by fat cells--and Adiponectin's ability to communicate with your brain.
Adiponectin is a molecule that may improve glucose and lipid metabolism, therefore decreasing plasma trigyclerides and fatty acids found in your bloodstream.
But the most important: Astaxanthin may be able to significantly reduce blood sugar levels and improve the regulation of insulin.
Astaxanthin, research suggests, SHRINKS fat cells and could
increase INSULIN SENSITIVITY
Increase Your Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin is a powerful carotenoid that has beeb linked to many different health benefits.
Research shows that Astaxanthin may improve insulin sensitivity in your body, leading to better insulin levels and improved blood sugar control.
It could also increase the secretion of Adiponectin, which may SHRINK your FAT CELLS.
By increasing your intake of fatty fish, shellfish, or supplementing with a Krill Oil supplement, you might increase your dietary intake of Astaxanthin.
