New expert report: Daily dose of Inulin could combat TOXIC visceral fat
Health experts believe inulin could combat the extreme health risks that are caused by having high levels of visceral fat surrounding internal organs.
Mostly visible around the stomach and hips, having high levels of visceral fat can restrict the function of major organs and has been proven to be detrimental to health; increasing the risk of type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, cancer and dementia.
But following the BBC health series How to Stay
Young, in which presenter Angela Rippon was shocked to learn she was at major risk of serious health conditions due to high levels of visceral fat, a medical expert has highlighted a way to reduce high levels of the toxic fat: inulin.
Inulin is a fibre used by the large intestine to produce short chain fatty acids – proven to promote the loss of visceral fat by increasing fat metabolism. And whilst found naturally in foods such as asparagus, bananas, wheat and chicory root, these foods would need to be consumed in extremely large quantities to realise the true benefits.
This is why a leading health expert, Dr Alejandro Palacios has suggested incorporating inulin into a daily diet with a supplement.
“A daily dose of inulin can really help to improve your health and lower the risk of major conditions,” he said.
“For many, visceral fat goes undetected and can be problematic, even those not recognising themselves as overweight and appear healthy, especially as they age.”
He goes on to explain how it is not easy to get an effective dose of inulin through diet alone, but a supplement can make all the difference.
“Results can be seen within a matter of weeks, especially when combined with an increase in physical activity and a healthier diet,
and could mean
the difference between life and premature death.”
High blood pressure, an increase in blood glucose levels and a higher than recommended hip-to-waist measurement are warning signs of higher levels of visceral fat.
A study by Harvard University found that around 10 per cent of our fat is visceral. So if you are carrying higher amounts of body fat than recommended, it is likely that you could be storing dangerous levels of visceral fat, putting your health at risk.
