Can This Powerful Secret SHRINK Your Fat Cells?
By Kevin DiDonato MS, CSCS, CES
There are many different factors that cause you to gain weight.
And this weight gain is 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 could decrease hormone production and FAT-UTILIZING proteins from being released.
So your body could lack the ability 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
So to stop free radical damage, you increase fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, into your diet.
This can potentially increase your antioxidant level, which could increase your ability to scavenge and DESTROY free radicals.
Astaxanthin, a powerful carotenoid found in krill, algae, and other marine life, could be a new way to help you lose weight.
And, research shows, Astaxanthin could fight and prevent metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.
When your fat cells are inflamed, it reduces the secretion of fat burning hormones.
And extra weight changes the way your body utilizes insulin.
It could be caused by a weak insulin signal or 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 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 could also increase the secretion of Adiponectin, a potent protein secreted by fat cells, and Adiponectin's ability to communicate with your brain.
Adiponectin also can improve glucose and lipid metabolism.
This could decrease plasma trigyclerides and fatty acids found in your bloodstream.
More importantly, Astaxanthin has been shown 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 could improve insulin sensitivity which could lead 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.
