WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Visceral fat is the excess intra-abdominal adipose tissue accumulation, also known as the “deep fat”.It’s a form of gel-like fat stored within the abdominal cavity that wraps around the major organs including the liver, pancreas, and kidneys.

It is not the same as the type of fat that most people associate with, which is “subcutaneous fat” (which is the fat that is all over the body and under the skin).

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Visceral fat is sometimes referred to as ‘active fat’ because research has shown that this type of fat plays a distinctive and potentially dangerous role. It does more than just making your pants feel tighter- visceral fat affects how our hormones function and how our body operates.

Storing higher amounts of visceral fat is associated with increased risks of a number of health problems including type 2 diabetes.

Health risk associated with Visceral Fat:

  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary Heart disease
  • Breast cancer
  • Colorectal cancer
  • Alzheimer’s disease
