Toxins in Your Fat Cells are Making You Tired and Bloated! Here’s How You Can Cleanse Them!
Our bodies are amazing machines made to help us run on the food we eat and remove the stuff we do not need.
Yet, the modern era is unfortunately rich in unhealthy and processed foods, which contain certain toxins and substances which remain longer in the body, and eventually buildup in the fat cells.
Water soluble toxins are easily removed from the body via urine or sweat. However, fat soluble toxins are not so easy to remove and the body ends up storing this toxins in fat cells.
Water-soluble toxins are those that get removed from the body via the blood and kidneys, and our body eliminates them via the urine. On the other hand, fat-soluble toxins which include food additives, pesticides, pollutants, preservatives, and even metals, must undergo a chemical transformation in order to be eliminated from the body, and for this process to be effective, the liver and the entire gastrointestinal system has to function properly.
The analysis conducted on samples fat cells by The National Health Adipose Tissue Survey (NHATS) found more than 20 toxic chemicals in a regionally diverse sample of the population.
Since the green revolution and better living through chemicals in the 1940s, numerous fat-soluble chemicals have been added to the environment and the food chain, and many of them are foreign to the detoxification pathways of the body.
Therefore, the body faces difficulties to find the proper way to respond and stores them in the fat cells.
These toxins won’t harm health in case they remain in the body for a short period of time, but if they remain longer, they are stored in the fat cells, leading to oxidation and free radical damage that can lead to metabolic and systemic dysfunctions.
Signs of Toxic Fat Storage:
– Skin issues
– Digestive Issues
– Swelling or Extra Weight Around the Belly Area
– Joint stiffness
– Swollen Hands or Feet
If you experience these symptoms or eat foods that contain pesticides, preservatives, additives, pollutants, heavy metals, or other environmental chemicals, you need to occasionally detoxify the fat cells. Here are some useful tips to help you:
First, you need to make sure you are digesting well. It is poor digestion that makes removing these toxins near impossible. Start by consuming ghee to help the digestive tract work like it should. Ghee will help the body to naturally burn fat and promote a healthy digestive tract and strong immune system.
It is also important to cleanse the liver. The liver works with fat soluble toxins and, more than likely, it is overwhelmed. That is why the toxins are not being removed like they should be.

This will make it easier for your body to remove toxins from the body. Also, your body needs to be well hydrated in order to work properly. Give your digestive tract and liver the water they need!
