Hidden Reasons Of Gaining Weight
Toxins due to which you are gaining weight
Most people in their household have a lot of products that contain hazardous materials.
But did you know that these substances can cause problems with your body weight?
More and more researches have shown that environmental toxins can cause excessive weight.
Some experts say that the root of the problem is that toxins from cosmetics, food, cleaning agents and generally from the environment overload the natural regulation of the body weight.
Even worse thing that connects them is the emergence of diabetes, because they interfere with the body’s ability to regulate sugar and metabolize cholesterol, which over time can lead to insulin resistance.
High levels of toxins disrupt the balance of hormones
Many obese people have high levels of body toxins.One of the reasons is that toxins accumulate in the fat cells. Due to the increasing number of toxins the fat is also increasing.Toxins disrupt the hormonal balance and the also disrupt the endocrine system.The hormones act to minimize, block, increase or decrease their activity.The most affected hormones are estrogen, thyroid hormones, testosterone, cortisol and insulin. As soon as one of them is disturbed, it is reflected in the other hormones.
In America, the risk of these toxins has been recognized at national level.Recently, the US major medical institutions have begun to explore the effect of different toxins on the human health and many of them were grouped in a group called obesogena – substances that cause weight gain.
Toxins which can cause weight problems
Bisphenol A, or BPA, which is widely used in plastic packaging, is known for itseffect on the estrogen and insulin levels.
Pesticides are used for treating crops, and through food and drink these toxins come in our body. Many researchers link them with the insulin resistance, the metabolic syndrome and the obesity.
Artificial sweeteners are worse than sugar because these synthetic chemicals are associated with many side effects including a hypothyroidism – slow thyroid.
This syrup causes changes in the liver by increasing the amount of glucose that is absorbed, which causes the liver to yearn for more sugar. This process accelerates the insulin resistance and the obesity and leads to resistance of the leptin hormone, which controls the appetite. This toxin is a common ingredient in many products and sauces, therefore you need to pay special attention to the composition of the product if you want to avoid it.
Phthalates are part of many scented air fresheners, candles, detergents and cosmetics. It is known they reduce the testosterone in the muscles, which contributes to weight gain.
Hydrogenated oils are widely known as trans-fats. They occur during the process by which vegetable oils are converted into toxic food that the body does not recognize. They are dangerous for the metabolism and the cholesterol and they also increase the risk of insulin resistance.
Refined sugar and carbohydrates
These foods are quickly absorbed into the bloodstream, causing a quick rise of the blood sugar levels and high insulin requirement. During the refining of the grains, they lose their fiber, vitamins and minerals, and therefore they are becoming foods with minimal nutritional value.
Other toxins that are also associated with obesity and diabetes can be found in modern furniture, paints, sealants, adhesives, paper, building materials, electronics, plastics and polyurethane foams.
