Abdominal Fat Stresses Overall Metabolism
Stored fat, especially abdominal fat1, signifies far more than just bothersome extra weight. It indicates a metabolic problem in that the stored fat is itself dysfunctional, contributing to problems all over your body including slowing down your metabolism and inducing insulin resistance.

New gene-analysis research is pinpointing the precise nature of dysfunctional abdominal fat and the news is not good. Shrink your stomach over time, otherwise you will stress your body in a way that promotes poor health sooner or later.

There are numerous nutrients that contribute to healthier fat and assist you to move in the direction of better weight management.
